Two established quarterbacks will take the field when Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles square off against Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football. The Eagles enter this star-studded showdown fresh off a victory in Week 1, while the Vikings suffered a surprising setback against the Buccaneers at home. With a limited number of options in the single-game Vikings vs. Eagles NFL DFS player pool, knowing which NFL DFS matchups to exploit could prove to be lucrative.
Should your Eagles vs. Vikings NFL DFS strategy include rostering Hurts, who accounted for just one touchdown last week against New England? Should you build your NFL DFS lineups around Cousins, who completed 33-of-44 passes for 344 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1?

Top NFL DFS picks for Eagles vs. Vikings
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Vikings vs. Eagles is Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson. He was Minnesota’s main playmaker in the Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers. In fact, the former LSU standout finished with nine receptions for 150 yards.
He failed to find the end zone against Tampa Bay, but he’ll likely be targeted early and often against the Eagles. Philadelphia gave up three receiving touchdowns in Week 1, including two to receiver Kendrick Bourne, making Jefferson a no-brainer for NFL DFS lineups.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Vikings receiver Jordan Addison. The rookie wideout didn’t waste any time incorporating himself into Minnesota’s offense. Addison brought in four of six targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings’ 20-17 loss to the Buccaneers.
Addison finished second on the Vikings in receiving yardage and with defenses focusing heavily on Jefferson, the rookie wideout could continue to draw plenty of one-on-one coverage. That bodes well for Addison against an Eagles secondary that gave up over 315 passing yards last week. Lock him in your NFL DFS lineups and look for a big return against Philadelphia.
