MATCHUP SUMMARY

The Vikings head out to Phoenix after a disappointing overtime loss to the Bengals on opening day. The Minnesota offense was respectable last week but the defense was carved up by Joe Mixon and Joe Burrow and will now be missing a number of key defensive players in this week’s matchup. Arizona’s Defensive Line has been league average but their secondary is expected to be considerably worse this season. While Dalvin Cook is always intriguing for tournaments, I’d expect the offense to have its best chance of success through the air here.  

The Cardinals, somewhat surprisingly, easily dispatched with the Titans on the road in their opener, 38-13. They now come home to an equally soft matchup against the injury-depleted Vikings. This offense continues to play at a fast pace and features a number of targets with DFS upside for Sunday. Even better, it looks as if Chase Edmonds is going to get the first crack at the feature back role, handling 12 carries and seeing 4 passing targets in the opener.  

THE DFS GEMS

Kyler Murray, ARI – $8200 on DraftKings. Kyler’s price has come up slightly but there are only a handful of quarterbacks on this slate with his ceiling at Quarterback given his depth of weapons and rushing capability. The only reason he didn’t get over 300 yards last week (He did get to 289) was because of the lopsided score.  

Chase Edmonds, ARI – $4900 on DraftKings. Yes, you should definitely consider DeAndre Hopkins in Kyler stacks but this price for even just 15+ carries and 4-5 passing targets is too cheap given the matchup here. Joe Mixon torched the Vikings for 127 yards rushing, 23 yards receiving and a touchdown.  

Justin Jefferson, MIN – $7400 on DraftKings. Double J saw 9 targets in last week’s opener but it was Adam Thielen who had the ceiling game with 92 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns. Bank on Jefferson being this week’s target volume for Minnesota through the air.
