D.J. Chark Jr. Note

He was ruled out early last week, so there's no guarantee he plays through his rib injury this week, so stay tuned for updates to his status. Of the fantasy production the Vikings have allowed to skill-position players, wide receivers have accounted for 55.4 percent of it, which is the fourth-highest percentage in the NFL. They have allowed 18 wide receiver touchdowns on the season, which ranks as the second-most in football. Only the Cowboys have allowed touchdowns more often than the one every 12.6 targets that the Vikings do. The 2.03 PPR points per target they've allowed ranks second again to only the Cowboys. There have been 20 wide receivers who've finished as the WR41 or better against the Vikings, including nine top-16 receivers. We don't know what Chark looks like with Glennon, but Collin Johnson made it look pretty good. If Chark is able to play this week, he belongs in the high-end WR3 conversation with top-15 upside.

Despite Chark and Chris Conley being out, Cole was unable to get much going against the Browns last week, finishing with 3/44/0 on six targets. To be fair, we shouldn't be expecting a whole lot out of Cole considering he's topped 58 yards just once all season. He's more of a floor option than one you're playing to get a ceiling out of. The Vikings have allowed 2.03 PPR points per target, which is tied for the second-most in the league, so him seeing at least five targets in 9-of-11 games this year is somewhat of a big deal. The Vikings have rookie Jeff Gladney covering the slot, and he's been... well, like a rookie, allowing 30-of-48 passing for 364 yards and five touchdowns in his slot coverage. If you want to play Cole as a high-floor WR5 type option, that's fine, but understand he's had a very limited ceiling this year despite seeing solid targets.
