In ESPN's fantasy rankings, the Vikings have a top-10 player at QB (Kirk Cousins), RB (Dalvin Cook), WR (Adam Thielen), TE (Kyle Rudolph) as well as a top-10 defense. I can't remember a year when the Vikings were such fantasy football darlings.
It's been a rough year for the Twins, but Jose Berrios generally has been a bright spot. He's improved in several key areas from last year — including his strikeout-to-walk ratio — and will look to keep building against the Pirates (noon, FSN).
"I think Lindsay Whalen may possess the textbook-ideal temperament for an athlete: a single-minded assassin on the court and a wry and mellow person off it. Which is to say, she maintains perspective. No crying at her retirement press conference, only celebration and jokes. She gets it."
