The Minnesota Vikings are nearing the halfway point of the 2019 season. They are 4-2 and have had some players play at a much higher level than expected.

Six games into their 2019 season, the Minnesota Vikings are off to a solid start. Sure, they’d like to have a better record than their 4-2 mark, but they are still right in the thick of things in their division.

The Vikings have had a few players play beyond expectations this year that have helped them reach their current record. Some of these are young, inexperienced rookies who have made their presence known with the limited reps they’ve seen, while others are resurgent veterans proving to the doubters that they have much more left in the tank.

Seeing these members of the Purple play out of their heads has been an added bonus to a strong start this season.

If the Vikings want to stay competitive in their division and the NFC, in general, they will need these surprising performers to keep on playing the way they have been. So which guys have been the six most surprising Vikings so far this year?
