Vikings Fantasy Football Fans

Minnesotans are a hearty bunch. They’ve been known to survive brutal cold stretches by being optimistic about the chances of brighter days ahead.

And in addition to the Vikings, they have to deal with the weather too. I’m kidding Vikings fans! Mostly!

Here are some piping hot Minnesota Vikings fantasy football team names to keep you warm in 2021.

Best Minnesota Vikings Fantasy Team Names

Trivia question: Going by overall career value, who is the greatest Viking of all time? Fran Tarkenton? Adrian Peterson? Randall McDaniel?

Nope, it’s center Mick Tinglehoff. But no one talks about him anymore because he has zero fantasy stats.

Kirk Cousins Fantasy Football Names

Kirk Cousins is one of the most polarizing quarterbacks in the NFL. Is he one of the worst of the best quarterbacks or one of the best of the worst quarterbacks?
