Last season it was the controversial pass interference call against the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round. Two seasons ago it was the famous “Minnesota Miracle”. Here we will look at five bold predictions that could happen this season in Minnesota.

Minnesota Vikings 2019 Season Recap

Mike Fanelli | February 3rd, 2020 

The 2019 season was one of many streaks for the Minnesota Vikings. Starting the season 2-2 with a 0-2 record in the division after losing to the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, the Vikings won eight of their next 10 games, only losing to two playoff teams; the Kansas City Chiefs and the Seattle Seahawks. However, the Vikings limped into the playoffs as Dalvin Cook struggled with shoulder and chest injuries, and the team finished the year on a two-game losing streak.

Thursday Night Football Week 8 DFS

Brandon Braasch | October 24th, 2019 

This game does not seem very interesting just based on each team’s record. The Minnesota Vikings are 5-2 and the Washington Redskins are 1-6. However, this is a revenge game for Vikings starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. He faces his former team where he played for six seasons. It is also a revenge game for Adrian Peterson as he faces the Vikings where he played for ten seasons. Here are my top players in this NFC matchup.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings

Mike Fanelli | October 24th, 2019 

Last week’s Thursday night game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos wasn’t much of a contest. Despite the Chiefs losing star quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the second quarter with a dislocated kneecap, the Broncos didn’t score after the opening drive and went on to lose 30-6. Hopefully, tonight’s game between the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings is more entertaining, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

The Walsh Way – Week 5 DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | October 5th, 2019

GAME THEORY

All my plays are based on DraftKings pricing. Its also important to note that when I list a player as a fade, I do not mean I will have 0% of them, but I will be way under the field as far as exposure goes, and likely will not play them on single entry lineups. Continue reading

NFL DFS: Cash Game Plays for Week 1 (Kickoff Sunday)

Joey Ricotta | September 8th, 2019

Well, this is it. This is what we’ve all been waiting for. NFL football is back baby! Of course, we had the Chicago versus Green Bay game on Thursday night to kick off the season, but that was simply a tease. A low scoring defensive battle with one touchdown over the course of the game. Sure, it was a good football game (not the outcome I wanted being a Bears fan), but not at all what fantasy players were hoping for either. There will be a lot more action and points today, guaranteed. Cash games have been an area we can find an edge when it pertains to daily fantasy football. Every year new players jump aboard the always rolling DFS train. Luckily for you, most of the new players will be applying what they know about season-long fantasy into DFS. That’s not a terrible strategy, but it can lead to bad habits or skipping over important details. By putting in the extra effort and taking in as much as you can, you’re already winning. With all of that said, let’s kick off this season the right way. Take a stroll with me and look at some options to target for Week 1 DFS Cash Games. Continue reading

The Walsh Way – Week One NFL DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | September 7th, 2019

First, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Kevin Walsh, and I am from Pittsburgh, PA. I have been playing DFS since DraftStreet still existed. This is my first season writing for The Scorecrow, and this is my first tournament rundown. I have written about DFS before, so hopefully, that shouldn’t be too much of an issue. I am a huge football and hockey fan, and I am always so engulfed in fantasy sports from September until January. I plan to give you a peek inside what I have going on in my head and hopefully lead you to some DFS success (as well as myself, of course), but enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff.

Mike Fanelli | July 29th, 2019

The 2019 NFL season is almost here! Well, the preseason at least. The Hall of Fame game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is just a few days away. The regular season is a little more than five weeks away, but football is back baby! Of course, that means redraft fantasy leagues will be drafting left and right over the next month or so. With that in mind, here are my top 12 running backs for the 2019 season.

Minnesota Vikings Season Review

David Lehr | January 12th, 2019

The Minnesota Vikings‘ season was one with many highs and many lows, and they were one of the most talked about teams all season. Paying a guy who had played in one playoff game 84 million dollars will do that to a franchise, but the Vikings season was not all about Kirk Cousins (although it definitely felt like it at times).

Minnesota Vikings: 2018 Season Preview

Robby Messer | August 22nd, 2018

As the preseason gets started, it’s time to take a look at how teams might fare heading into the season. There will always be surprises that will make all prognosticators look foolish, but, let’s face it, that’s half the fun! That being said, let’s start taking a look at the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North. A division which has the chance every year to produce a top team with Aaron Rodgers leading the Packers, but as we learned last season, it was a different Case entirely.

Blood, Sweat, and Tiers – Tier 3

Frank Dyevoich | August 16th, 2018

The running back position once again reigns supreme in fantasy football. There seemed to be a trend leaning toward wide receiver dominance given the consistency of the guys at the top, but the elite play of the NFL’s best running backs over the past few seasons quickly put a stop to that. When preparing for your draft, you want to separate your running backs into tiers so you can find the best values without sacrificing production. Here is the fourth installment of Blood, Sweat, and Tiers. The first article on the rookies is here. The second on my likes and dislikes is here. Tier 4 is here.
