2024 Outlook
Depth Chart
The camp battle between Darnold and McCarthy is going to be quite entertaining, as the winner inherits the keys to a potent set of receivers and a coach that coaxed multiple 4,000 yard, 30-touchdown seasons out of Kirk Cousins. McCarthy has looked the part of a raw, talented prospect, but he knows how to win, unlike his veteran competition. Darnold has bounced around the league after leaving the Jets, and finds himself on his third team in three years. He hasn't played a meaningful snap in several seasons, but his pedigree, experience, and brief early career flashes, likely make him the Week 1 starter for the Vikes. If Kevin O'Connell is the QB whisperer many think he is, Darnold could play well enough to win some games and keep the rookie at bay. Minnesota is a win now team in an incredibly competitive division, so unless Darnold completely implodes, I expect his leash will be as long as Vikings fans allow it to be. Call me crazy, but I can see a world where Darnold plays well, reaps the benefits of an elite set of receivers and sneaks into fantasy relevance. How long that lasts is the problem. With how tough this division is set up to be, a few early season losses will have the McCarthy chants too loud to ignore. Unfortunately, with how deep the position is, I just can't see either guy being draftable options. McCarthy's athleticism and big arm offer the most upside when he eventually takes over, but either guy can be plucked off the waiver wire if necessary.
