Foles The MVP
Starting at the top with the MVP slot, it is filled out by Nick Foles. Foles has a nice matchup here against the Vikings defense that ranks 28 on daily fantasy football sites against opposing quarterbacks.
Foles has put together a nice two-game run in his last two games where he has thrown for over 270 yards and two touchdowns in each game and both of those games have come against top-12 defenses in the league. If Foles can have nice games against those tougher defenses, he could be in line for a nice game here against the Vikings.
Dalvin Could Dominate Again
Filling out the first roster slot here is Dalvin Cook who is the highest-priced player for tonight’s showdown matchup. Cook needs absolutely no introduction as he has arguably been the best running back in the NFL over the last two weeks of the season.
Over these last two weeks, Cook has gone for 163 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns, 63 receiving yards, and a receiving touchdown in Week 8 for 47.6 fantasy points and 206 rush yards, two rush touchdowns, and 46 receiving yards for 38.2 fantasy points in Week 9.
It does not matter what opposing defenses throw at Cook as he will find ways to produce no matter what. With that said, he is a must roster here against the Bears secondary.
Justin Jefferson Next In Line
The second roster slot is filled out by Vikings rookie receiver, Justin Jefferson. Jefferson has been able to hold his own during his rookie season as he has shown what he is capable of as he has gone for over 100 receiving yards on three separate occasions.
Jefferson has also been made the clear WR2 on this Vikings offense behind Adam Thielen who draws the opposing teams top defensive back which leaves more room for Jefferson to make big plays.
However, Jefferson could start drawing some more looks his way as Thielen has been on a cold streak in his last two games as he has gone for under 40-yards in both outings.
Don’t Sleep On Darnell Mooney
The third roster spot is taken by Bears receiver, Darnell Mooney. Mooney could be in line for a big night here as the Vikings defense is one of the worst when it comes to defending against opposing receivers as they rank 31 in the league.
Also, Mooney has seen an uptick in targets in his targets overall this season as he has seen over five targets in his last seven outings including a season-high 11 targets in Week 9 and all as the WR2 behind Allen Robinson. However, Robinson is listed as questionable with a knee injury that could keep him sidelined but also could shift Mooney to the WR1 slot.
If Mooney were to move to the WR1 slot he would be primed for a breakout game as the Bears have already ruled out their RB1 David Montgomery which will force them to throw the ball more.
Cairo The Kicker
Bears kicker, Cairo Santos, take over the final roster spot here as he brings guaranteed points to this roster. Santos has had a nice stretch of five games kicking as he has seen 9 or more points in three of his last five games including a 13- and 14-point outing.
Something that could work in his favor, however, could be that because Robinson is questionable and Montgomery is out as mentioned before, the Bears might not find the endzone as easily as they were hoping which could mean that Santos could be in line for some longer attempts.
With that said, he could easily strike double digits here in Week 10.
