This was a tough slate for me to make a core for honestly everyone I tried doing the pieces just didn’t really fit. I ended up going with Cousins as my captain of this slate though there were a few other players I played around with. I think the Saints will be able to stop the run for the most part which will lead to the Vikings and Cousins having to pass the ball more.

Other players we like for this slate that are not on the core.

Justin Jefferson – He is starting to become Cousins favorite target and is very reasonably priced on this slate in a game that like I said I believe will have a lot of passing I think he is someone that you will wanna pair with Cousins. He has gone for double-digit points in five of his last six games and the one game he did not get double digits he got 9.9

Emmanuel Sanders – He is a little higher priced than I would like on this slate at $8800 but Brees has to throw to someone right? When Brees has been the QB he has been able to put up reasonable points I just wish that his price was closer to the 8k range thing that would be a little bit more of a fair price for him

Adam Thielen – Thielen is one of the hardest WR in the NFL to figure out he either goes off and score 20+ or he scores under 10. In this game, I tend to think it will be closer to that 15-20 fantasy point range as I said I expect the Vikings to pass the ball a good amount. Still, I would more than likely suggest Thielen for GPP than cash just for that boom or bust reason.

Tyler Conklin – Since Kyle Rudolph went down Conklin has put up just as many points as Smith Jr and you get him for $2200 less than you can get Smith Jr for. I think this is more so a GPP play then cash but if you are looking for a 2nd cheap cash play he gives you good value.

Juwan Johnson – With Thomas and Smith both not playing Johnson became the number two guy he got four targets his last game and has got three before just seems not to do much with them. I personally like Humphrey a lot more as a cheap option for who could be the number two WR on the saints but if you are looking for a pivot in GPP I would say Johnson is the guy.

Well that is the breakdown and core for this game hope you all enjoy and have a good Christmas.
