When the Minnesota Vikings open up the 2022 regular season at home against the Green Bay Packers, who will be in the starting lineup for the purple and gold?

OTAs are underway this week for the Minnesota Vikings as they begin to prepare for the 2022 regular season.

The Vikings are still early in the process, so they’re really still just trying to figure out what they actually have to work with on their roster.

We may learn that Minnesota is using certain guys in certain positions during OTAs, but then the team might have a totally different plan for these players during training camp this summer.

When it comes to which members of the Vikings will begin the 2022 season as starters, we will likely be seeing a lot of familiar faces. Despite the hirings of new head coach Kevin O’Connell and new general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, Minnesota decided to keep the core of their roster pretty intact this offseason.

So even if we project which players will start for the Vikings during the 2022 campaign, it’s probably going to look very familiar when compared to the 2021 team. Still, let’s see if we can predict who Minnesota will select for their 2022 regular-season starting lineup.
