During Week 6 of the 2019 season, which players on the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles should you be starting on your fantasy football team?

Last week against the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings fans finally saw Kirk Cousins and the team’s passing offense get back on track early.

Cousins marched the offense downfield on the first drive of the game by passing the ball and it led to three points for the Vikings. By the end of the matchup, the Minnesota quarterback had his first game of the season with at least 300 passing yards and two touchdowns.

This week, Cousins hopes to continue that success against a Philadelphia Eagles secondary that has struggled so far this year.

The Vikings’ running game was clicking on all cylinders as well last week, as we saw Dalvin Cook rumble for his fourth 100-yard game of the season, and it was also his second-highest rushing yard total of the year.

This week, however, could have a much different tune to it as Minnesota’s offensive line has to try to open up holes against one of the best defensive lines in the league.

There are a lot of implications in this week’s matchup between the Vikings and Eagles. We all remember the shellacking Philadelphia put on Minnesota in the 2017 NFC Championship. Not only that, thanks to the Vikings losing to the Chicago Bears in Week 17 last season, the Eagles were able to snag a spot in the playoffs.

This week, Minnesota should have a chip on their shoulder and, hopefully, they will pile on to the Eagles who have become a rival of the Vikings recently.

So when these two teams face off on Sunday, which players should you be starting and sitting on your fantasy football team?
