 We conclude the offensive portion of our Minnesota Vikings preview with Scott Kacsmar of Football Outsiders Womens Danielle Hunter Jersey , celebrating the release of the Football Outsiders 2018 Almanac. Since we’ve talked about the quarterback position and the offensive line, we’re going to take a look now at the wide receiver corps. We know that the Vikings’ receivers have had a great deal of praise heaped upon them since last season, and with good reason. They may have the best 1-2 receiver punch in the league, and the battle for spots behind them this offseason has been one of the best battles of camp thus far.So, what does Scott think about the Vikings’ receivers and where their best fit in the offense is? Let’s find out.Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have developed into what might be the best 1-2 wide receiver tandem in the NFL. From what you’ve seen from them, is there any reason to fear that they might be in for a regression even with what (in theory) should be an upgrade at quarterback?It’s interesting to see the disparity between Diggs and Thielen when it comes to the number of targets that each had from the slot. We’ve seen that both of them are talented and versatile enough to be successful in either role, whether it’s in the slot or out wide, but it would appear that Diggs is much more successful from the slot than Thielen is.It makes sense when you look at Diggs’ traits. He possesses such great quickness and route-running ability that if he lines up off the line of scrimmage where a defensive back can’t get an initial jam on him, he could well be totally uncoverable. . .I think that’s a word, despite what my spell checker tells me.When Kacsmar talks about the Vikings’ two primary options as the #3 receiver. . .or Authentic Brett Jones Jersey , at least, the guys that were the primary options when I first submitted these questions. . .they both offer quite different skill sets. Treadwell, as he mentions has just about no slot value and is pretty much exclusively an outside receiver, while Wright likely wouldn’t offer much on the outside and should be used primarily in the slot.Of course, this doesn’t take players like Brandon Zylstra (who will make his preseason debut on Friday), Cayleb Jones, Stacy Coley, or any of the other receivers that are fighting for spots. Whoever comprises the rest of the wide receiver depth chart behind Diggs and Thielen will certainly have earned their spots and should find themselves as the recipient of quite a few targets.We’ve got two more questions that we’ve thrown Scott Kacsmar’s way about the Vikings, and they both concern the Minnesota defense (though nothing about new acquisition George Iloka, who was not a part of the equation when I sent my questions in). Stay tuned tomorrow to find out the question and answer Womens Anthony Barr Jersey , and check out the Football Outsiders 2018 Almanac if you’re so inclined.Wednesday Open Thread: August 29, 2018 Merry Wednesday, everyone!Alright, one more day to go and the preseason will come to an end. We’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for the 2018 season for a long time now, and our wait is almost over. It’ll be kinda’ strange to have disagreements over real football games, I’ll kinda’ miss the 100 comment threads over a fabricated scenario that has a 0% chance of ever happening. Meh, no I won’t, bring on the season!Around the DN since our last open thread:Saxyprince goes from 90 to 53 with the Vikings roster. I believe those numbers are referring to number of players, not miles per hour.From Chris, the Daily Norseman Pick ‘Emand Survival Leagues are starting soon , sign up begins this Friday! Skelly10 shared a report that Kirk Cousins turned down a $90 million offer from the Jets, and signed with the Vikings instead.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the league:Over at, catch Coach Zimmer’s Tuesday press conference, hear George Iloka talk to reporters about his hybrid role, and there is other activity to sift through in he media vault.Mark Craig at the Star-Tribune has a piece on Coach Zimmer’s preference for intellect in his players.Signed one day, and cut the next; that’s what happened with Robert Ayers as he had an extremely short stint as a Lion, per No report on the reason for the short stay.You’d think it would be hard to skip with an injured foot. Not for Andrew Luck. He skipped practice yesterday because of his injured foot, per come to today’s media selection:The season’s almost here, ARE YOU READY!??!Again, we all know the rules , but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tagsNo pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employerIf you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the blood sausage
