3.) Jordan Addison vs. Cincinnati Bengals

In his last three games, rookie standout Jordan Addison has been on a rough stretch due to quarterback performance. In nine of the first ten games this season, he scored double digit points with no less than 11 points and as high as 31 points. He was a super consistent WR 2 option, but that does not seem to be the case anymore. When Kirk Cousins tore his achilles, it took a massive hit on the wide receiving core in Minnesota, including Addison. 

In the last three games against the Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears and Las Vegas Raiders, Addison has a combined 11 receptions for 110. It is a significant drop in production and now the Vikings have a new starting quarterback in Nick Mullens who will replace Josh Dobbs. The Vikings are heading to Cincinnati to take on a Bengals squad that is doing just fine without quarterback Joe Burrow and the defense has played great last week against the Colts. Unless Addison can make some magic out of almost nothing, it is time to put him on the bench this week and maybe moving forward
