The Minnesota Vikings may have put together back-to-back disappointing seasons but there are some players who should be fun to watch in 2022.

It is hard to describe the 2021 NFL season as anything other than a disappointment for the Minnesota Vikings. Failing to reach the playoffs again, the franchise seems to be struggling to find its footing and put a complete game together each week.

This isn’t entirely due to a lack of talent. There are plenty of players on the team’s roster who are excellent at what they do and make watching the game an absolute joy for fans every single week they play.

Minnesota will likely be losing quite a few players and members of the staff this offseason and the Vikings could look a bit different when they take the field for the opening game of the 2022 NFL season.

Let’s take a look at five players that should move the needle for fans of the Minnesota Vikings and help to make the long wait for meaningful football games a little easier since we know they should be something special to watch.
