Minnesota Vikings Fantasy Spin
Adam Thielen (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Vikings' Sunday night matchup against the Cowboys. Stefon Diggs will continue to work as the offense's clear-cut No. 1 pass-game option. He's plenty capable of balling out against a Cowboys Defense that has yielded big days to each of Robby Anderson (5-125-1), Jamison Crowder (6-98-0), Michael Thomas (9-95-0) and Terry McLaurin (5-62-1) through nine weeks. Diggs' pitiful 1-4-0 performance in Week 9 snapped his three-game streak with at least 140 yards, but he's tentatively expected to see more volume this week considering Kirk Cousins has fed his featured pass-game option 15, 7, 7, and 11 targets in games following a performance with fewer than five pass-game opportunities since 2018.
Dallas Cowboys Fantasy Spin
Amari Cooper (knee) is questionable for the Cowboys' Week 10 matchup against the Vikings. Cooper is expected to play through his questionable tag and suit up Sunday night. He's set up extremely well against a Vikings defense that has struggled to find competent CB play from Xavier Rhodes (PFF's No. 107 ranked CB among 127 qualified corners), Mike Hughes (No. 77) and Trae Waynes (No. 98) this season. Fire up Cooper as a WR1 at home, where he's posted 5-58-1, 8-180-2, 8-76-0, 10-217-3, 4-20-0, 7-106-0, 6-106-1, 6-88-2, 11-226-1 and 5-106-0 lines since joining the Cowboys.
NFL Betting Trends
The under is 6-2 in the Vikings’ last eight games following a straight up a loss.
The over is 9-1 in the Cowboys’ last 10 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
With the Vikings’ struggling on defense (which is unsual given how well that unit has played since Mike Zimmer took over as head coach), the over looks like the best play for bettors on Sunday night. The over is 8-3 in the Cowboys’ last 11 games, is 5-2 in their last seven games played in November and is 5-2 in their last seven games coming off a win. On the other side, the over is 5-0-1 in the Vikings’ last six games played in Week 10 and again, with the way their corners have struggled, this could be a big play-type game where we see quick scores that lead to bettors cashing the over.
