2.) Jordan Addison vs. Falcons

The first-round rookie for the Minnesota Vikings has been phenomenal in his first year with the team, but now the offense for Minnesota is unknown with Kirk Cousins officially out for the season after tearing his Achilles last week.

Even when Justin Jefferson was active before being played on the IR, Jordan Addison was a big contributor in the passing game. He only has two games where he has not reached the endzone and the last two weeks, he has 14 total catches for 205 yards and 3 scores. 

Now that Cousins is out for the season, the Vikings will look to a quarterback room that has Jaren Hall and now trade acquisition Josh Dobbs from the Arizona Cardinals. Until one of those two quarterbacks proves themselves within this offense, Addison may not be the dangerous weapon he once was in the first half of the season.

In addition, the Atlanta Falcons’ defense has yet to allow over 300 passing yards this season and have 3 takeaways in the last two weeks.
