Minnesota Vikings Fantasy Spin

Vikings CB Trae Waynes (ankle) is questionable for Sunday night's matchup against the Cowboys. Waynes' absence would be good news for Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper alike. Gallup posted 7-158-0, 6-68-0 and 7-113-1 lines in his first three games of the season, but has limped to 4-48-0, 3-34-0 and 2-33-1 performances since. Such is life as an auxiliary option inside of an offense with a clear-cut No. 1 WR and RB that demands 20-plus rush attempts per game. Still, fire up Gallup as an upside WR3 in this spot

Dallas Cowboys Fantasy Spin

Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) wasn't listed on the team's final injury report. Vander Esch's presence is bad news for Dalvin Cook, but the Vikings' stud RB is plenty capable of winning any matchup. Cook has at least 20 touches in all but one game this season and should continue to be fired up as a high-end matchup-proof RB1.

NFL Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Vikings are just 3-12 against the spread in their last 15 games when facing an opponent with a winning record.

Dallas

The Cowboys are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five games played in the month of November.

Prediction

The home team is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams while the favorite has cashed in nine of the previous 11 meetings. Amari Cooper is questionable but the Cowboys are generally healthy. And when they’re healthy, especially along the offensive line, I wind up backing them at the betting window more times than not. The Vikings are known for their defense under Mike Zimmer but they’ve had issues on that side of the ball. They surrendered 26 points to the Patrick Mahomes-less Chiefs last Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, surrendered 30 points to the Lions in a win at Ford Field back on October 20 and gave up 20 to the Eagles in a 38-20 victory on October 13. In other words, the Vikings aren’t the same dominant unit defensively as we’ve seen under Zimmer in previous years. With the Cowboys’ ability to run the football behind their massive offensive line, I’m laying the field goal.
