Week 11: vs Denver Broncos

All WR vs DEN

FBG says: Bad matchup. Kirk Cousins executed the Vikings game plan to near perfection last week as he passed for two early touchdowns and 220 yards while committing no turnovers. Cousins was off to a slow start this season, but he has since turned it around with 15 touchdowns and just one interception in his last six games, scoring the third-most fantasy points among quarterbacks over that span. This passing offense receives the benefit of one of the best rushing offenses in football though, so despite the touchdowns and efficiency from Cousins, it remains a relatively low volume unit. Top receiver Adam Thielen will likely remain sidelined until after their Week 12 bye, leaving Stefon Diggs the top wide receiver option for Cousins. However, Diggs has taken a big step back in recent weeks with just four receptions for 53 yards in his past two outings after stringing together over 140 receiving yards and seven receptions in each of three straight games from Weeks 6 thru 8. Dalvin Cook, on the other hand, has been consistent in the passing game with at least six targets and 45 receiving yards per game over the past three weeks--including a season-high seven receptions for 86 receiving yards last week. Tight end Kyle Rudolph is a touchdown-dependent option, but those touchdowns have been rolling in lately as he scored twice last week and now has four touchdowns in his last four games. The Broncos pass defense remains one of the top groups in the league, giving up an average of just 202.1 passing yards per game (4th-fewest) while holding opposing quarterbacks and wide receivers alike to the third-fewest fantasy points per game (PPR scoring). Whether looking at the early or late season, this defense has consistently performed well against the pass. They have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in just two games while holding opposing offenses to zero passing touchdowns in four of nine outings. Cornerback Chris Harris has been nothing short of elite, while the pair of first-year starters Duke Dawson Jr. and Davontae Harris are both carrying their weight alongside the veteran Harris. It also helps to have two of the best safeties in football over the top in addition to a blossoming young linebacker A.J. Johnson to help in coverage over the middle. The defensive line has also been solid despite coming up relatively short in the sacks department this season. With the Vikings playing a man down in the receiving corps, Stefon Diggs will have his hands full while Kirk Cousins should be in for a challenge to find open options downfield.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)

The Vikings sorely needed a third receiver. They thought they had it with Josh Doctson but lost him to injury before he ever suited up. The Vikings brought Treadwell back after cutting him and he is getting a second chance with the franchise that drafted him. Treadwell managed a single catch for 15 yards this week and will resume the same role he has had in years past. The passing game will go through Thielen and Diggs, but Treadwell will get his chance to make plays this season.

Our View: Treadwell looked as effective and competent as he has at any point in his NFL career. If Adam Thielen is missing extended time, he'll be worth monitoring in deep leagues.
