Minnesota Vikings DFS Spin

Speaking Friday, Vikings offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak said that he has "got to give (Dalvin Cook) more opportunities moving forward," and "we just have to keep finding a way to get him the football." Well, yes, that's ideal that your running back gets more carries, as it generally means you are winning. Cook is narrowly out-targeting his per-game averages from 2020 as a receiver, but he's down about three carries a game. Kubiak's quote shows us that the Vikings still view Cook as their linchpin on offense, but it doesn't necessarily promise anything beyond him retaining a huge share of the carries.

Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin

Lamar Jackson completed 15-of-31 for 257 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Bengals, adding 12 rushes for 88 yards. Jackson was yanked midway through the fourth quarter after Baltimore's defense gave up against a Bengals offense that did anything it wanted against the Ravens. Jackson peppered Marquise Brown with 14 targets, hitting Hollywood on a long first half touchdown and narrowly missing him on a couple other deep throws. Jackson, who salvaged his fantasy day with 88 rushing yards, had a 40-yard run called back on a holding penalty -- a crushing blow to any chance at a Lamar ceiling game. Jackson and the Ravens take on the Vikings in Week 9 after their Week 8 bye. A Ravens-Vikings game profiles as a track meet, giving Jackson a chance to break out of his mini statistical slump.
