Vikings Depth Chart Ahead of Week 4 at Saints

The Minnesota Vikings are 3.5-point favorites in London versus the New Orleans Saints this weekend. Minnesota sits atop the NFC North, thanks to tiebreakers. New Orleans needs a win in England to avoid a 1-3 hole. They’ll face the Vikings without WR Michael Thomas, who was ruled out on Friday due to injury and probably sans QB Jameis Winston, listed as doubtful for Week 4. OG Andrus Peat was also ruled out.

Andy Dalton is expected to start at quarterback for New Orleans.

The Vikings injury report is a bit concerning, as Za’Darius Smith (EDGE) and Andrew Booth did not practice on Thursday.

Here’s the depth chart for Week 4:
