Each season, the Pro Football Writers of America honor an All-NFL team, All-NFC, All-AFC, and an All-Rookie team. This year, three Minnesota Vikings were given honors.

After a season in which he rushed for 1,557 yards and 16 touchdowns, Dalvin Cook was named to the PWFA's All-NFL and All-NFC teams. He is the only member of the Vikings to have made either of those two lists. Joining him on the All-NFL team for running back is Tennessee's, Derrick Henry. Henry rushed for over 2,000 yards this year.

Vikings rookies Justin Jefferson and Cameron Dantzler were named to the PFWA All-Rookie team. Jefferson, 22nd overall draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, set a rookie record for receiving yards in 2020 finishing with 1,400 yards on 88 catches. Third-round pick Dantzler finished his rookie season with 46 tackles, three tackles-for-loss, and two interceptions.

Jefferson was joined by Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool on the All-Rookie team. Joining Dantzler at cornerback is Kansas City's L'Jarius Sneed.
