Redskins vs Vikings Week 8 Thursday night football game might not be that high profile but it means a lot for the fantasy football lovers. There might be not many turnovers in the game and it may even end up early, but nothing is permanent as we have seen so far in the NFL 2019 season.
last year i went to the vikings/bills game in which the vikings were 17 point favorites and lost horribly. this thursday i'm going to the vikings/redskins game in which the vikings are 16 point favorites.
ya'll have been warned

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson tells me his MRI showed he has a grade 1 high ankle sprain & a grade 2 low ankle sprain. Peterson also said, “I’m good.” Redskins play the Vikings in Minnesota, his old stomping grounds, on TNF. Kirk Cousins will play his former team as well.

It is why the fantasy football team has to be updated before the Redskins vs Vikings game. Big names such as Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, Adrian Peterson, Case Keenum, Terry McLaurin, etc will be on the line and here are the predictions for each player for your fantasy lineup.
Washington Redskins Players
Case Keenum, QB: Start – The Vikings defense has given touchdowns to every quarterback except the Bears and Giants in the present NFL season. Keenum can easily put some garbage yards and score a TD in the second half of the Redskins vs Vikings game.
Terry McLaurin, RB: Start – Except the last game against the 49ers, the rookie McLaurin as so far amazing with 20 catches for 357 yards and five TDs in the other four games. The Vikings have allowed TDs to even Marvin Jones Jr. Terry can easily score against them.
Adrian Peterson, RB: Sit – The wide receiver is already suffering from an ankle injury and it would be hard for him to run against the Vikings defensive side. It won’t be easy for Peterson to carry for more than 57 yards and reach the goal line.
- Paul Richardson, WR: Sit
- Trey Quinn, WR: Sit
- TE Jeremy Sprinkle, TE: Sit
- Dustin Hopkins, K: Sit
Minnesota Vikings Players
Kirk Cousins, QB: Start – The Redskins has allowed more than 250 yards of passing per game and Cousins have made tow consecutive 300 yards, four TDs games. He will easily manage to score more than three touchdowns against the Redskins.
Dalvin Cook, RB: Start – Cook is currently leading the NFL charts with 725 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. Meanwhile, the Redskins has the 27th worst defense, there is not even a competition.
Stefon Diggs, WR: Start – Ever since making his comeback in the Vikings, Diggs has been explosive with 7-167 and three TDs on 11 targets with 7-142 on eight targets. It will be another opportunity for the receiver to prove his name and score big on Thursday night football game.
- Alexander Mattison, RB: Start
- Kyle Rudolph, TE: Start
- Dan Bailey, K: Start
