  Vikings | T.J. Hockenson taking off with Minnesota    Wed Nov 30, 12:38 AM

Minnesota Vikings TE T.J. Hockenson is tied with Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce for the most catches by a tight end (26) since he was traded from the Detroit Lions on Nov. 1.

Footballguys view: Hockenson has been exactly the type of tight end the Vikings needed. The former first-round pick of the Lions was traded before the deadline earlier this year, and he's flourished with his new team. Hockenson is a TE1 for Fantasy GMs in a year where finding a consistent starter at tight end has been difficult if you don't have guys like Travis Kelce or Mark Andrews at the positon.

  Vikings | T.J. Hockenson scores on Thanksgiving    Fri Nov 25, 12:07 AM

Minnesota Vikings TE T.J. Hockenson caught five of his six targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in a 33-26 win over the New England Patriots in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Hockenson has been consistent as a strong box score presence since joining the Vikings, and he was able to add a score in this one. He has leveled off as a top 5-6 fantasy tight end who was greatly helped by the trade to Minnesota.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen has nine grabs, TD    Fri Nov 25, 12:06 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught nine of his 10 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in a 33-26 win over the New England Patriots in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Thielen's days as a downfield target are over, but he's still an excellent possession receiver and he knows how to get open in the end zone. He still has some value as bench depth, especially in PPR leagues.

  Vikings | Justin Jefferson sets record in win    Thu Nov 24, 11:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson caught nine of his 11 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown and completed an 11-yard pass in a 33-26 win over the New England Patriots in Week 12. Jefferson now holds the record for the most receiving yards for a player in their first three seasons.

Footballguys view: There's not much more we can say about Jefferson's season and the start to his career that the numbers don't say better. Some were taking him at #1 overall in drafts this summer, and that's where he'll probably go in 2023 fantasy drafts.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook held in check    Thu Nov 24, 11:56 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 22 times for 42 yards and caught four of his five targets for 14 yards in a 33-26 win over the New England Patriots in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Cook was contained by the Patriots, in a sign of the great respect Bill Belichick had for him as the engine of the Vikings offense. Cook hasn't been that productive over the last two games, but he's still a solid RB1 against the Jets next week.

  Vikings | Three touchdowns for Kirk Cousins    Thu Nov 24, 11:55 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 30 of his 37 passes for 299 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 33-26 win over the New England Patriots in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Cousins was hyperefficient and broke the mold of prime time Kirk that usually falters under the lights. The Patriots defense took away Dalvin Cook, but couldn't contain Cousins and Justin Jefferson.

  Vikings | Justin Jefferson a full participant    Mon Nov 21, 05:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson (toe) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 21. The Vikings did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Footballguys view: The Vikings are licking their wounds after a beatdown at the hands of the Cowboys on Sunday. Good thing they have a short week. The Vikings play on Thanksgiving night against the Patriots. Jefferson won't be 100 percent, but he's the type of player who is in your lineup when he's on the field.
