The Minnesota Vikings at Denver Broncos Sunday night game in Week 11 probably induced groans from football fans when they saw it on the schedule a month ago. But the two teams have since resurrected their seasons, and their upcoming primetime matchup has plenty of players who could deliver for fantasy rosters. Fantasy analysts Scott Pianowski and Jorge Martin play a little game of “Would You Rather” and take a side for which offense they like most in this matchup.

The Case for the Broncos

The Chiefs and Eagles play the game of the week, maybe the game of the year, Monday night. It’s a Super Bowl rematch and maybe even a Super Bowl preview, two heavyweights slugging it out after bye weeks.

But I’m also plenty interested in the primetime undercard: the Minnesota at Denver game, Sunday night. These two teams went from shipwrecked to rescued awfully quick.

You’re not supposed to overreact to outlier performances, good or bad, but when Miami pasted Denver by a 70-20 count back in Week 3, I figured the Broncos were toast for 2023. Denver dropped to 0-3, with the first two losses against ordinary Washington and Las Vegas teams. Heck, even the Bears and Jets — two offenses no one trusts — rolled up a collective 878 yards of offense against Denver in Weeks 4-5 (I swear Breece Hall had 300 yards himself). The only time I had deep thoughts about the Broncos in October was when I was making up trade destinations for Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton. Of course, nothing came together.

And everyone figured Minnesota’s season was over when Kirk Cousins got hurt in Week 8. Kevin O’Connell is a good coach, but nothing torpedoes a team like an injury to a star quarterback.

So here we are. Denver’s on a three-game winning…
