Quarterback

QB | Donovan McNabb | Minnesota Vikings | Fantasy
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier wants QB Donovan McNabb to be more aggressive in the passing game. Although McNabb only has two interceptions on the season, Frazier feels McNabb has played too cautious. McNabb has averaged just 170 passing yards per game. "He's done a great job of not turning the ball over, which is a big deal because of the way we play," Frazier said. "It's one of the reasons we've been in these games the way we have. But you can't play this game cautious. He knows that. He's had a ton of success in this league. Sometimes, you just got to let it go. And he will, and he has."
