Which players have been the biggest gifts for the Minnesota Vikings this season?

For the Minnesota Vikings, the 2020 season hasn’t gone according to plan. They have been ravaged by injuries and they have had to rely on plenty of young and inexperienced players to contribute much sooner than the coaching staff would’ve liked.

The Vikings have also had some special teams problems, offensive line woes, and the team has struggled to put a consistent product on the field.

While many aspects of this season’s team have been disappointing for Minnesota, some players have stepped up and played great all year long. Some of these guys were expected to play at the high levels they have been, while others have been a pleasant surprise.

Since it’s the holiday season and gift-giving is in the air, let’s look at some of the players that have been the biggest gifts to the Vikings this year. Some of these gifts were expected while others kind of came out of nowhere.
