Let's have a little competition, much like we do around draft time. One point per player correct.

QB:
RB:
WR:
TE:
OL:
---
DL:
LB:
CB:
S:
---
K:
P:
LS:

Bonus if you want to predict the 7 players who will be inactive in Week 1 (this is different from the Reserve/Suspended list)

I would be shocked if Munnerlyn gets cut, especially with Price and Robinson missing time. And I'd also be surprised if the team keeps Dubose. The guy has done nothing this preseason, and is a prime candidate for the PS, maybe even straight cut with the way Trattou has played.

Does they have a practice squad eligible QB? That's the only way I see them not keeping a third on the roster.

I'll buy the DuBose angle, because he's just a bottom of the roster guy anyway. And as far as the Captain goes, I just have that feeling that they aren't going to want to pay that kind of money for a 4th corner.

Heinicke is a rookie, so he's definitely PS eligible, I'm not sure about Kafka, but I doubt it.

But I agree, I don't see any reason why Heinicke should be kept on the active roster.

Heinicke is PS-eligible. I don't believe Kafka is anymore as he spent most of the last 2 years on practice squads, but they've screwed around with the rules so much regarding them, I don't really know.

But the money has already been allotted, other than not handing him the pay checks, the team doesn't really gain anything financially. That money isn't going to get spent on someone else this year. Not to mention, by cutting Munnerlyn, the team's sole responsibility of the nickel back spot falls on a rookie. I don't see the coaches being all that comfortable with that.

They only need to get by the first 2 games and then Price can take over the slot. While his number may be accounted for this year, he's essentially going to be limited to only playing in nickel, so I'm not sure how paying nearly $5M for a nickel-only corner is going to be all that useful.

Even if he makes the team this year (which is certainly possible), I highly doubt he's around next year, because they can save $4.5M on next year's cap by cutting him. I'm just doing it a year early. It's not that big of an impact either way.

Based on the roster, as it's currently shaped:

Offense (24)

QB1 - Teddy Bridgewater
QB2 - Shaun Hill

RB1 - Adrian Peterson
RB2 - Jerick McKinnon
RB3 - Matt Asiata
FB1 - Zach Line

TE1 - Kyle Rudolph
TE2 - Rhett Ellison
TE3 - MyCole Pruitt

WX1 - Charles Johnson
WZ1 - Mike Wallace
WR1 - Jarius Wright
WZ2 - Cordarrelle Patterson
WX2 - Adam Thielen
WR2 - Stefon Diggs

LT1 - Matt Kalil
LG1 - Brandon Fusco
OC1 - John Sullivan
RG1 - Mike Harris
RT1 - TJ Clemmings
CG2 - Joe Berger
OT2 - David Yankey
LTG - Tyrus Thompson
RTG - Austin Shepherd

Defense (26)

RE1 - Everson Griffen
NT1 - Linval Joseph
UT1 - Sharrif Floyd
LE1 - Brian Robison
UT2 - Tom Johnson
NT2 - Shamar Stephen
DE3 - Scott Crichton
DE4 - Danielle Hunter
DE5 - Justin Trattou

WB1 - Chad Greenway
MB1 - Audie Cole
SB1 - Anthony Barr
SB2 - Gerald Hodges
MB2 - Eric Kendricks
WB2 - Brandon Watts
SB3 - Brian Peters

RC1 - Xavier Rhodes
LC1 - Terence Newman
NC1 - Captain Munnerlyn
LC2 - Trae Waynes
RC2 - Marcus Sherels

FS1 - Harrison Smith
SS1 - Robert Blanton
SS2 - Andrew Sendejo
FS2 - Antone Exum
FS3 - Shaun Prater

Specialists (3)
LS1 - Kevin McDermott
PK1 - Blair Walsh
PN1 - Jeff Locke

-----

At the beginning of the year, I have the Vikings keeping an extra linebacker (Brian Peters) over the extra cornerback (DeMarcus Van Dyke, IMO). Shaun Prater plays the 5th safety and the 6th corner at the beginning of the year. When Josh Robinson is healthy, the team has a few options. They can cut one of: Peters, Prater, or Sherels. When Jabari Price comes back from suspension, the team can cut one of the remaining two (or three if he comes off of suspension before Robinson is healthy).

Sherels may end up out just because of a numbers game at corner. Robinson and Price are clearly, and comfortably ahead of him on the depth chart and I don't see the team keeping seven cornerbacks. This is especially true if Diggs remains a viable punt return option.

The inactives from the above roster would be:

Diggs
Shepherd
Thompson
Trattou
Peters
Watts
Prater
