Minnesota @ San Francisco
Team Totals: 49ers 26, Vikings 23
Vikings (5-5) at 49ers (5-5) profiles as a game with serious NFC playoff implications. Minnesota visits San Francisco with Kirk Cousins’ passing game delivering elite efficiency; over his last five starts, Cousins has an 11:0 TD-to-INT ratio, 67% completion rate, and an additional rushing score, while no member of the 49ers’ secondary looks capable of covering Justin Jefferson. As usual, Cousins is a high-ceiling yet fringe QB1/2 start in season-long leagues. … Beginning with most recent, Dalvin Cook’s touch counts over his last five games are 25, 27, 20, 18, and 31. Facing San Francisco has posed a middling matchup for enemy running backs, yet Cook’s consistently voluminous workloads render him an opponent-agnostic RB1 bet. Vikings No. 2 RB Alexander Mattison has handled five touches or fewer in every game since Week 5.
