Gary Kubiak To Be Vikings Offensive Coordinator

The Minnesota Vikings are turning to Gary Kubiak, who has been an assistant head coach and offensive advisor, as their next offensive coordinator, according to sources. Minnesota's previous offensive coordinator, Kevin Stefanski, has left to become the Browns head coach. Not much will change in Minnesota with Kubiak at the helm of the offense, but it is mostly good news for running back Dalvin Cook, who will continue to be the focal point of this offense moving forward. Quarterback Kirk Cousins also benefited from plenty of play-action passing plays while Kubiak was an offensive advisor.

Adam Thielen Is Active Against 49ers

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) is active for Saturday's Divisional round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Thielen suffered a cut to his ankle on Wednesday that required stitches, but he will suit up for the do-or-die game, as expected. Stefon Diggs (illness) is also active. Both receivers face a daunting matchup in the 49ers Defense as they rank second in pass DVOA and are returning three starters from injury. Thielen may be the better play of the two as he has always produced better than Diggs against zone coverage, but both profile as risky options in this difficult matchup on the road.

Kirk Cousins Held To 172 Yards In Loss

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21 of 29 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional round. He also tossed one interception in the defeat. The 49ers Defense pressured Cousins all game long, and the Vikings' inability to get the running game going had an extremely negative effect on the offense as a whole. Cousins finished the year on a terrible note but had a career-best year with a 26/6 TD/INT ratio, over 3,600 passing yards, and a 69.1% completion percentage. There have been rumblings of the Vikings extending Cousins in the offseason as he is entering the final season of his three-year deal.

Dalvin Cook Gets Shut Down In Defeat

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had nine carries for 18 yards in a 27-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He added six catches on eight targets for eight yards. Cook was continuously stymied by unrelenting 49ers' defensive front as the Vikings' offensive line was simply overmatched. This was an absolutely miserable ending to what was a great campaign for the third-year back, as he tallied 1,135 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns at 4.5 yards per carry during the regular season. Look for the Vikings to explore extending Cook in the offseason as he proved to be a top-tier back in the rush-heavy offense.

Stefon Diggs Has Productive Game

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught two of five targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-10 defeat against the San Francisco 49ers. Diggs was the only productive player for the Vikings from a fantasy standpoint as he caught a 41-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Diggs finished with 63 catches for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns as he emerged as one of the league's premier deep-threat receivers. He averaged an impressive 17.9 yards per catch and had a few monster weeks in the middle of the season. He's best viewed as an upper-tier WR2 in fantasy formats as he shares the spotlight with Adam Thielen and Dalvin Cook in what is a run-centric offense.
