It’s that great time of the year, when fall is in the air, your favorite team plays Friday Nights, Saturday, or Sunday. College Game Day is on Saturday. Pro Game Day is on Sunday morning. Your favorite team is undefeated, as are the Minnesota Vikings.
Expectations are high for the Vikings. At this point in the season, Cousins will be All-Pro and lead us to the Super Bowl. Likewise Dalvin Cook will lead the league in rushing. The Vikings have the best receiving duo in the NFL. They still have question marks on the Offensive Line, but they will get that figured out.
Their defense is still the best in the NFL. The front four has been enhanced with the addition of Sheldon Richardson. The linebacking crew is outstanding. They added a All-Pro Safety in George Iloka. The corners Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes will have learned how to cover. Don’t forget our first round draft pick, Mike Hughes who should crack the starting lineup early in the season.
Then the real world hits!!!
Our new kicker misses a chip shot for a victory. One of our defensive starters will be out for the season. One of our key offensive weapons will be out for the season. Cousins gets hit hard and often, because they never fixed the offensive line, and is playing injured.
Since I have several Vikings on my fantasy team, I’ve given up, and don’t even submit a lineup anymore.
