The Vikings are playing an exciting brand of football, but how
much that defense can bend before it breaks remains to be seen.
The Minnesota secondary has given up the 4th most fantasy points
to receivers, and Lamb is on pace for career bests in all categories.
Vegas not only expects the Cowboys to win, but the game has the
2nd highest over/under for the week. Fire up the skill position
players in this one.
Letís stick with the Dallas/Minnesota game and take a look at
Hockenson. In two games with his new squad, the former Lion has
16 receptions on 19 targets, numbers he hardly ever saw during
his time with Detroit. Heís instantly become the 2nd option in
this passing game, and with so much attention directed toward
Justin Jefferson, Hock should continue to see tons of looks at
the intermediate level of the defense.
Boyd has been a bit of a letdown since JaíMarr Chase was
lost with a hip injury, but heís still seeing a consistent
target share, and I doubt the Bengals are up 35-0 at the half
this week against the Steelers. Heís unlikely to see big
yardage days, but should have a solid floor against a Steelers
defense thatís struggled mightily in the secondary.
Short of a few busted coverages last week against the Titans,
the Broncos have been a secondary to avoid this season. In Week
4 Adams went for 9-101 on 13 targets, but this is an offense thatís
been in a tailspin, losing four of the last five since that game.
Without Waller and Renfrow, Adams is the only threat in the passing
game, and the attention heíll draw could result in a disappointing
Disgruntled for not being traded at the deadline, and stripped
of his captaincy, it seems like Cooks and the Texans are destined
for a divorce. In the meantime, look for Houston to feature Nico
Collins and their band of backups as their season circles the
drain and they look to 2023.
Ultra talented with a bright future ahead, it’s still hard
for me to have faith in the Jet passing game this week in Foxboro.
A few weeks ago, Wilson piled up a career best 115 yards, but
with Corey Davis still hurt, and Elijah Moore still in the doghouse,
I think Coach Bill makes it a priority to stop Wilson. Plus, Zach
still seems to see more ghosts than a kid on Halloween.
