Vikings to start in Week 4:
Dalvin Cook – RB
Dalvin Cook has been an absolute monster so far this season. He’s in the second year removed from tearing his ACL his rookie year and he appears to be feeling back to his old self. The question of talent was never the problem, just the question of staying healthy.
Now that we are looking at a healthy Cook, we could be looking at the leading rusher in the NFL, which is what we are looking at through three weeks. The Vikings should need to lean on him again this week, though the tremendous average yards per carry he currently sits at may take a tick down against this tough Bears defense.
Adam Thielen – WR
Week three saw Adam Thielen have a big game. He landed in the endzone once through the air and once on a jet sweep at the goal line. He remains Kirk Cousins‘ favorite target after seeing those two hook up the majority of last season.
His volume should go up this week, as we can expect a shootout until the final whistle blows. The quick pass game will be key this week along with setting up play-action passes. All of which will benefit Thielen and his fantasy value this week.
Bears to start in Week 4:
Allen Robinson – WR
Allen Robinson is in his second season with the Chicago Bears and we are starting to see why they like him so much. He was highly thought of coming out of Penn State when the Jaguars drafted him, but injuries have held him back from being what he could be. This year we are seeing what he could be.
A tough wide receiver to matchup man and man, and a receiver that can burn you many different ways. He’s clearly Mitchell Trubisky‘s favorite target, and although he should see the Rhodes treatment, Robinson still should see some good production through the air this week.
