The Vikes have played relatively well on defense this year despite their 0-4 record. They have yet to lose by more than a touchdown and the most points they have given up in a game this year is 26 against Detroit in overtime. This stream is not a stretch even though they are still available in about ninety percent of leagues.
Analysis: Minnesota is home against the struggling Arizona Cardinals in a must win game this week. Kevin Kolb has fumbled the ball four times and has thrown four interceptions this year, so the possibility for turnovers is there. Kolb also hasn’t topped a quarterback rating over 70.0 in his last two starts. Arizona’s offense is a middle of the road team in rushing yards, passing yards and points per game but their downfall this year has and will be turnovers. They have fumbled the rock ten times, third most in the league but they have only lost three of them. The Cards have also allowed twelve sacks on the year, eighth most in the NFL. On the other side you have the Vikings who have twelve sacks, tied for fifth most in the NFL. Give me the Vikes to stream this week and you can have the Bengals, who are “projected” to do very well this week against Jacksonville. I say Andy Dalton turns the ball over twice on the road and a very game Jacksonville squad plays some Jack Del Rio football.
