The $1873 in the list is MCO-BSB.

From MSP, I'm seeing RT fares around $4000, depending somewhat on the destination and routing.

not a great sale by any means but something to pay attention to if you have to book business trips on a specific budget that is too restrictive for typical J fares. however, the 7 day minimum is also a killer.

The day of the week restrictions also bite.

They don't seem to be all that strict on enforcing the 7day requirement.... I just sample-booked some 4 and 5 day trips on MCO-BSB around Thanksgiving time, and they all came out for that price still.

It doesn't really add much to do domestic nor Canadian routings feeding into that flight either.... but try it to GRU/GIG, and you bounce up to $4K-5K instantly.

Also, I've independently sampled TAM/Azul cnnx from that flight (out of Brasilia) for only about $110USD, but 10hr+ layover times for all of them. If you want less than 3hrs layover, then triple that price.

As for DL, it really doesn't seem like much of sale, just a push to boost that one route.

I've been unable to see any fare rules that seem to coincide with the terms of the sale, but, as always on delta.dumb, most of my searches end in the statement that fare rules aren't available. For some European destinations, there are business class deals that were around before this sale was announced, so the stuff you're seeing that doesn't require a seven day stay might not be these sale fares.
