From a fantasy football perspective, who performed the best for the Minnesota Vikings in their big Week 1 win over the Green Bay Packers this past weekend?

The Minnesota Vikings are 1-0 on the season after defeating the Green Bay Packers by a final score of 23-7 inside U.S. Bank Stadium this past weekend.

In a contest that was one-sided for most of the day, the Vikings steamrolled the Packers in a game where new Minnesota head coach Kevin O’Connell finally got to show off his Super Bowl-winning offense with one of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the NFL in Justin Jefferson.

On the other side of the ball, Green Bay trotted out several n ew faces with little NFL experience and with the expectations of filling the massive void left by the departure of Davante Adams.

Here are the biggest fantasy-related takeaways from this week’s offensive showcase with a bit of an eye-catching battle of the NFC North.
