NFL Showdown – Week 8 TNF

Washington will travel to Minnesota and we have our first of what appears to be a ton of “Revenge” Themed narrative games with Case Keenum/Adrian Peterson headlining their return to Minnesota against Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings.  Also, it should not be lost that Stefon Diggs is a DC area native who I believe grew up as a Skins fan as well and add in that with Adam Thielen out he should be one of the more popular plays tonight.

The Vikings come in on fire offensively as Kirk Cousins has the passing game going really well and the Skins secondary continues to be a weak link on a defense that finds themselves on the field too much in games due to a lack of Production from their offense.

 

MUST OWN PLAYS

Dalvin Cook and Kirk Cousins … With Adam Thielen sitting out the volume that Diggs should get in the passing game is hard to pass up for sure, but that doesn’t mean Dalvin Cook is getting kicked to the curb here in the Vikings offense.  He remains the key piece to the offense and is in a prime spot to roll up 2 TD tonight and be the key to this showdown contest.  With the Vikings as HEAVY HEAVY favorites you have to expect Cook to get plenty of TD opportunities and late rushing yards as well.

Stefon Diggs … Tough fade, but I would get Cook in before him.

Adrian Peterson … Didn’t do well in 2017 when he returned to Minnesota but he’ll see much more volume tonight then he did in that game.

Case Keenum

Terry McLaurin

 

SNEAKY PLAYS

Irv Smith

Alexander Mattison … I would pair him with Cook to be contrarian
