Purple FTW! Podcast

Slide into the weekend's DMs with one last dose of Minnesota Fightin' Vikings audio goodness. We chatted Brian Robison returning and the status of contact extensions with Darren "Doogie" Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) of The Scoop. Plus Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout), the newest addition to the ELITE Inside the Pylon team, swings in for his weekly spot looking ahead to the 2019 Draft and a closer look at the Vikes' exceedingly deep and talented defensive line.

All that and more "B-Rob's One Last Ride" chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are primed to have a fantasy relevant offense at all levels in 2018. Adding offensive genius John DeFlippo and perennial 4000 yard thrower of the football Kirk Cousins to a squad with electric wide receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, the return of dynamic Dalvin Cook, and Kyle Rudolph is also a player. To analyze all the fantasy angles, we brought in Friend of the Program Marcas Grant (@MarcasG) of NFL.com Fantasy to chat about who/where/why some Vikes will be worth grabbing in your leagues this year. Plus Vikes Over Beers with Josh Pelto, Andrew Roth, and a Tom Schreier cameo!

All that and more "Cousins is a QB1" chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

To take a closer look at how the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fared in the NFL Draft and a gander at the rookies, we brought in Thor Nystrom (@thorku) of Rotoworld. We talked about Mike Hughes, Brian O'Neill, and the rest of the picks as well as the phenomenal UDFA crew. Plus why Thor gave Spielman and crew a C+ Draft Grade...

Friend of the Program Courtney Cronin (@CourtneyRCronin) of ESPN rejoins the show to talk about the NFL Draft fallout, rookie minicamp over the weekend, what the Minnesota Vikings offensive line could end up looking like, and I try to find some confirmation bias for my Chad Beebe mancrush.

With the NFL Draft madness (and subsequent UDFA insanity) over, it's time to asses the new crop of Minnesota Fightin' Vikings. To do that, we brought in our resident scout Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) to recap the Vikings' selections, if they'll regret passing on interior line help, what the deal is with so many project players, and why fans should be excited about the UDFA group.

It's finally here. We brought in Michael Kist (@MichaelKistNFL) of Bleeding Green Nation (yes, I know) and Inside the Pylon to chat about today's NFL Draft, the Eagles and the Vikings competing for slot cornerbacks, if Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst's heart issues will cost him, ranking the interior offensive linemen, and what's the ONE player he'd be annoyed (as an Eagles fan) if the Vikings land.

Adding fuel to your NFL Draft Week flames, we brought in Friend of the Program Matt Waldman (@MattWaldman) of The Rookie Scouting Portfolio and Football Guys to break down the two polarizing quarterback prospects (Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson), give me a mid-late round tight end, wide receiver, and running back that could help the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings Day 3, and his FAVORITE skill position sleeper of the draft. Plus I open the show with some choice thoughts on Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.
