Dalvin Cook had a hot start to his rookie season but should fantasy football GMs look to add the Minnesota Vikings running back to their 2018 roster? One of the most important parts of doing a fantasy football draft is making sure you choose the right players at the top of the draft.

Minnesota Vikings Training Camp Preview: What I Like; What Concerns Me

There is a lot to like about the Vikings heading into 2018. There’s also cause for concern.

When the Minnesota Vikings convene in Eagan (it’s going to be weird to not say ‘Mankato’ when talking about the Vikings training camp for a few years) it will begin a season of high expectations. They are considered by most experts to be on a very short list of legitimate Super Bowl contenders, and for good reason. They went to the NFC Championship last year, everyone of significance is...

Could Richard Sherman have been a Minnesota Viking?

Apparently it was something that he considered

A couple of weeks ago, we learned that Minnesota Vikings star cornerback Xavier Rhodes was part of a group of cornerbacks that were working out together on the West Coast. One of his workout partners was former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Sherman was released by the Seahawks back in March, and soon after signed with the San Francisco 49ers.

While the Vikings weren’t reported to have shown any interest in Sherman when he was...

Randy Moss was a better NFL receiver than Jerry Rice

Unlike Rice, the former Minnesota Vikings receiver did not have the luxury of playing with Hall of Fame quarterbacks for the majority of his NFL career. Last week, former NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice acknowledged himself as the greatest player in the history of the league. It’s an understandable argument, as statistically speaking Rice owns […] Randy Moss was a better NFL receiver than Jerry Rice - The Viking Age - The Viking Age - A Minnesota Vikings Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and...

Barr taking a different approach in negotiating his contract with the Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings linebacker has taken a different approach to getting a new contract from the team than those in the past. The Minnesota Vikings are a team that has a blue collar reputation.

Monday Open Thread: July 16, 2018

We are almost to training camp, and to the kickoff of a new NFL football season. For Vikings fans, it’s a season to be excited about.

Merry Monday, everyone!

Hey, training camp is almost here. Anyone have plans to make it this year? If so, and if you’re interested in meeting up with other members, say something in the comments. I’m guessing we’ll have quite a few members who will be training camp attendees, especially now that camp is a stone’s throw from Minneapolis (a pretty long...

4 free-agents the Vikings could sign before training camp

As training camp creeps closer to beginning, who are four remaining free-agents that the Minnesota Vikings might consider signing? In less than two weeks, the Minnesota Vikings will be kicking off their 2018 training camp.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook named NFC North rising star by ESPN

Dalvin Cook made a big impression as a rookie season with the Minnesota Vikings but ESPN believes the running back is a rising star for the 2018 season. When the Minnesota Vikings used a second-round draft pick on Dalvin Cook during the 2017 NFL Draft, the team knew they were getting a dynamic running back […] Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook named NFC North rising star by ESPN - The Viking Age - The Viking Age - A Minnesota Vikings Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Rashod Hill could still be the answer at right tackle

He’s gotten in better shape after wearing down late last year

While the Minnesota Vikings spent their second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft on Pitt offensive tackle Brian O’Neill, nobody is sure whether or not he’s going to be the answer at right tackle this season or not. If he’s not, the man that could very easily start there this season could be the one that finished there last season.

According to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Rashod Hill has dropped 12 pounds...

AUDIO: Anthony Harris sits down with SB Nation Radio

They talked to him about a number of different topics

When it comes to the Minnesota Vikings, safety Anthony Harris is a player that has flown under the radar for most of his first three seasons. Though he’s performed capably when called upon (such as creating one of the Vikings’ biggest plays of last season with his strip of Cooper Kupp in the team’s win over the Los Angeles Rams), he’s been primarily a special teams player to this point.

Earlier on Sunday, the third-year safety had...

What would you buy if you were the #1 pick in the NFL Draft?

Another of our social media questions makes its way onto the site

Since the last post that we originally put on social media and brought over here seems to be pretty popular, let’s take another one and transfer it over, shall we?

The other day, we posed this question to Minnesota Vikings fans on Facebook and Twitter:

If you were the #1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, what’s the first thing that you would buy?

Now, I should have put a caveat on that, because as Eric pointed out on Twitter....

Let’s take a moment to reflect on the awesomeness of Everson Griffen

He’s good, everybody

Given the fact that Minnesota Vikings’ defensive end Everson Griffen wasn’t a full-time starter for the first few seasons of his career (thanks to the sizeable shadow of Jared Allen at the right defensive end spot), there’s a very good chance that Griffen is just getting started in his career as one of the NFL’s premiere pass rushers. But, what makes him so good?

Well, one enterprising YouTube creator took a closer look at Everson Griffen’s game with some...

Vikings’ front seven is among the NFL’s deepest position groups

Talent upon talent upon talent.

Nobody is going to deny that the Minnesota Vikings’ defense is talented. Given that they were the #1 defense in the National Football League last season in terms of both yardage and points allowed, such an argument would be relatively useless for whoever was making it. However, the Vikings are getting to the point where it isn’t just the starters that are ridiculously talented.

Harrison Smith to be enshrined in hometown Hall of Fame

The Knoxville native will be inducted on 7 August

Since being drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, safety Harrison Smith has been one of the cornerstones of the Vikings’ defense. . .the cornerstone, in my opinion. . .and has developed into the best safeties in the National Football League. Recently, we found out that the city where it all started for Smith will be honoring him early next month.

With the start of the 2018 season rapidly approaching, the appropriate time for us to look back at the 2017 season is growing shorter. But, since we still have some time to kill and the 2017 season, all things considered, was pretty awesome, looking back is exactly what we will do here.

Mike Hughes one of 13 unsigned first round picks

They’ll all likely sign before camp, though

Rookies for the Minnesota Vikings will be making their way to Eagan in about a week and a half. While most of the team’s 2018 draft class was signed not long after they were drafted, the crown jewel of the group is one of numerous first-round picks that still has not put pen to paper.

Vikings offensive weaponry among NFL’s best

There’s a lot of talent to be had in Minnesota

When most people talk about how talented the Minnesota Vikings are, the focus generally moves to what the team has on the defensive side of the football. After all, there are All-Pro caliber players on every level of Minnesota’s defense, so it’s easy to look in that direction.

However, the offensive side of the ball shouldn’t be overlooked, specifically what the Vikings have done at the skill positions. Bill Barnwell of ESPN has rated...
