    2024 Minnesota Vikings futures picks: Breaking down win totals, Super Bowl odds, schedule, depth chart and more

    We start getting you ready for the 2024 NFL season with our early analysis of the Minnesota Vikings odds and futures picks

    In 2017, the Minnesota Vikings went 13-3 with Case Keenum playing like a stud and bringing the team to the doorstep of the Super Bowl before being blown out in the NFC Championship by another unlikely success story in Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles. That offseason, the Vikings made a big move at quarterback, landing Kirk Cousins to take the team to the next level. But Cousins was never able to recapture that 2017 magic, taking the Vikings to the playoffs twice and seeing their one elite 13-4 season in 2022 ended by Daniel Jones in the wild-card round.

    After Cousins' midseason injury, the team decided it was time to reset at quarterback again, letting him leave in free agency and turning their attention first to journeyman Sam Darnold, then the 2024 NFL Draft, where they moved up one spot to land Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy, a late riser in the predraft process. It's clear the franchise is now hitching its wagon to McCarthy long-term and whether he can succeed where Cousins fell short, but the question is whether that will happen immediately or if McCarthy will get some time to acclimate to the NFL on the bench and avoid a tough stretch of opponents from Weeks 2-5 that includes the 49ers, Texans, Packers and the Jets in London prior to a Week 6 bye.

    Kevin O'Connell showed in his first season (that 13-4 run in 2022) that he has the potential to eventually enter the top tier of coaches, but his work developing McCarthy is what's going to be what makes or breaks his reputation as an offensive whiz moving forward. Expectations are low in McCarthy's rookie season with the Vikings lined at around seven wins in the market, so this year may be more about positioning themselves for a potential breakout in 2025.
