When the Vikings get in the red zone, they are going to call Cook’s number early and often. Given Kirk Cousins’ struggles on Monday Night Football throughout his career, it makes sense to keep it on the ground with their star running back as often as possible.
The Bears will also look to keep a hard shell over the top of their defense, preventing the long plays to star receiver Justin Jefferson. For this reason, Cook is a really strong candidate to be the first touchdown scorer.
Kmet has seen his role in this offense grow this season, and the young tight end has the trust of his rookie quarterback. He has totaled over 2.5 receptions in three straight games, and has gone over this prop total in seven of his past eight games.
The Vikings’ secondary hasn’t been great this season, and they released starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland after an altercation this week. The Minnesota offense remains dangerous, which means the Bears will need to pass to keep up.
Justin Fields has been getting better and better. He is coming off a performance where he completed 18 passes for 224 yards, and the Vikings’ loss at cornerback should only help the rookie quarterback tonight.
Those completed passes for Fields need to be caught by someone. Aside from Kmet, Mooney is a likely candidate. He has totaled five receptions in three of his past four games, and was targeted 36 times over those four contests.
