Minnesota Vikings 2021 Fantasy Soccer Rookie Abstract ⋆ Soccer Absurdity

The Minnesota Vikings missed the 2020 playoffs despite having undoubtedly the best fantasy football rookie in Justin Jefferson. It shows that fantasy football is not real life. That explains why the Minnesota Vikings drafted people who likely won’t help in their fantasy football leagues in 2021, but who will likely improve the Vikings’ chances of getting into the playoffs soon. What can we expect from Kellen Mond, Kene Nwangwu, Ihmir Smith-Marsette and Zach Davidson for fantasy football 2021?

TALENT

If you hire Moon to figure out where to go on a particular game with a soccer ball, you’re going to have a bad time. However, if you tell him to take a split second and toss in one spot, you may get some results. He looked like a disaster against LSU trying to do real quarterback things, but the A&M coaching team just let him hold onto it and tear it against Alabama for much better results. At Mond’s Ball, receivers often sit and wait for it to arrive as if trying to perfect the NFL Eephus field.

He has almost no touch and no accuracy as his body is blown with every throw. Nevertheless, he is very athletic and uses this athleticism to get him out of trouble quite often. Mond also uses this athleticism as an excuse not to be late in your pocket to find a good pass option. Here’s the long and the short: Kellen Mond is a less athletic Colin Kaepernick with a much weaker arm than you’d expect from this comparison.

2021 OPPORTUNITY

Ideally, the Minnesota Vikings Ladles let Moon seep behind Kirk Cousins ​​for a season. Captain Kirk is going nowhere as he is a perfect quarterback and it takes a QB losing the starting gig to improve the backup. I just don’t see this for moon. The literal best-case scenario for Kellen Mond is for cousins ​​to pull an Alex Smith and get worried in the middle of the season, allowing Mond to gain momentum. Besides that. I’m not sure how he got on the soccer field to play a role.

2021 FANTASY FOOTBALL OUTLOOK

If Kellen Mond comes out on the field, he’ll likely play a lot of Nick Mullens-like games, as his processing reminds me a lot of Mullens. If he can grab and tear he’ll be fine, but once the defense does something complicated, call him Okonkwo because things are falling apart.

Round 4, Selection 119 Total: Kene Ngwangwu, Running Back, State of Iowa (6’1 ”210 pounds)
Depth diagram:
RB1: Dalvin Cook
RB2: Alexander Mattison
RB3: This is Ngwangwu
RB4: Ameer Abdullah
TALENT

Ngwangwu is an extremely fast runner (albeit one speed) who has great difficulty changing direction, getting a burst of steam into the scrimmage line, and going through tacklers. Other than that, Ngwangwu is fine! He’s very quick and a big and athletic return (9.89 RAS score!), So it makes sense that the Vikings snapped him up to replace the late Mike Boone. Right now they have Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison, two backsides that are basically copies of each other. The addition of Ngwangwu gives them a new aspect: pure speed. He’s unlikely to replace Mattison as a backup, but he’s adding another component to his running game. Ngwangwu is also likely to get repetitions in special teams as returnees. It’s a great piece to add to your team.

2021 OPPORTUNITY

I just don’t think it’s important to fantasy football. Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison likely record 90% of return touches when they are healthy. Mattison and Cook offer more than enough coverage otherwise, so I don’t hope he steals from either of them.

2021 FANTASY FOOTBALL OUTLOOK

Ngwangwu’s path forward to the relevance of fantasy football in 2021 is entirely through injury.

Round 5, Selection 157 Total: Ihmir Smith-Marsette Wide Receiver, Iowa (6’1 ”179 pounds)
Depth diagram:
WR1: Justin Jefferson
WR2: Adam Thielen
WR3: Olabisi Johnson
WR4: Him to Smith-Marsette
WR5: Chad Beebe
WR6: Whop Philyor
TALENT

Smith-Marsette is smooth and fluid and is a good size. It doesn’t have a lot of alpha properties, but it has useful properties. ISM is a seedy runabout who uses a lot of this talent as a returnees and as a deeply threatened guy. It doesn’t have a lot of alpha properties, but it has useful properties. His route tree takes some work, but he’s an athletic guy who’s always looking for YAC. ISM is fast but with no second gear, so he’s basically running a wind sprint with the CB. Overall he is an athletic WR without much technical ability who has good (not good) hands.

2021 OPPORTUNITY

ISM is the type of guy who helps his quarterback without becoming a star himself, at least not right away. The Vikings have two of the best broadband receivers in the league in Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson, and they don’t love leaving Kirk Cousins ​​out of the running. Therefore, Minnesota ISM has limited options in 2021. He is likely to hit 60 goals this season, barring catastrophic injuries to Thielen or Jefferson.

2021 FANTASY FOOTBALL OUTLOOK

If Adam Thielen or Justin Jefferson miss the time this season, I could see ISM work its way into deep PPR league value. But those goals will likely be spread out through him and Bisi Johnson rather than going to the ISM alone. He’s a great piece in the NFL, but I don’t see a straight path for him in 2021 outside of a particularly virulent strain from an injury bug hitting the team’s WR room.

Round 5, Pick 168 Overall: Zach Davidson, Tight End, Central Missouri (6’7 ”245 pounds)
Depth diagram:
TE1: Irv Smith Jr.
TE2: Tyler Coklin
TE3: Brandon Dillon
TE4: Zach Davidson
TALENT

Zach Davidson is too big for his weight and came out of nowhere to be good. But he’s very fast and agile enough and has some good hands. Jimmy Graham has had a career exterminating other people, so maybe Davidson can do the same? Did I mention he’s the Central Missouri Punter too? I did not? Probably because it’s crazy enough to watch this guy play without knowing he was doing double duty. It reminds me of people I played basketball with in high school who clearly just had overactive pituitary glands and were just too big for their bodies to add weight to catch up. If someone told me that Davidson turned 7 inches in 2020, I would believe them. He’s just so lanky!

2021 OPPORTUNITY

Zach Davidson shouldn’t be active on match days and is most likely a first year practice player.

2021 FANTASY FOOTBALL OUTLOOK

I want Davidson to be really bad, but the last time someone made waves with his physique, a little girl stabbed another little girl. I doubt it will matter to fantasy football at any point, but the first year is right out the window.
