Vikings LB Eric Kendricks (biceps) and LB Anthony Barr (knee, hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Barr looks more shaky for the game after putting in just 1 limited practice Friday. His absence doesn't matter much for IDP purposes, other than that it would likely mean full playing time for LB Nick Vigil. He has been a much stronger fantasy contributor than Barr this season. Kendricks sandwiched limited practices around a missed Thursday workout. We'll update the statuses for all 3 LBs Sunday morning.

11:30am EDT 10/3/21

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. That leaves Nick Vigil in place as the #2 LB for Minnesota and a strong option or our IDP lineups.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. He's not particularly interesting for IDP use, but Barr's status should affect whether Nick Vigil remains a full-time player. Vigil has delivered top 10 fantasy numbers at the position through 3 games with Barr out. We'll check Barr's status Sunday morning.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He's dealing with a quad issue that kept him out of Thursday's practice, but Kendricks returned to full participation Friday. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Otherwise, the Vikings ruled out DE Everson Griffen (concussion) and OLB Anthony Barr (knee). Barr's absence means another start for Nick Vigil, who returned to a full practice Friday and is good to go after a limited start to the week.

Minnesota added LB Eric Kendricks to the injury report Thursday, when he missed practice with a quad issue. We'll see whether he makes it back onto the field Friday. DE Everson Griffen also sat out with a concussion, which doesn't bode well for his Week 2 readiness. OLB Anthony Barr looks poised to miss at least 1 more game with the knee injury that kept him out of the opener. That would mean another start for Nick Vigil, assuming he's healthy enough to play. Vigil was limited Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle issue. We'll see about his game status after Friday's practice.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr will miss the rest of the season after tearing a pectoral muscle in Sunday's loss to the Colts. That should mean full playing time for weak-side starter Eric Wilson going forward. Wilson wound up playing 92% of the snaps vs. Indy, totaling 7 tackles and grabbing an INT. He saw 7 other games of 70% playing time or more over the previous 2 seasons when other LBs went down. Wilson finished all 3 such games last season with 8+ tackles.

The Vikings have removed OLB Anthony Barr from the injury report. He missed last week's game with a knee injury, allowing Eric Wilson to take over full-time snaps and deliver a big IDP outing (11 tackles, 2 sacks). But with Barr ready to face the Bears, expect Wilson to return to playing about half the game and not offering much IDP value.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr is inactive for today's game against the Raiders. Make sure he's not in your IDP lineups. His absence takes a playmaker out of the Minnesota lineup, but the defense remains a strong play against Oakland.

Never mind. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that OLB Anthony Barr has decided to re-sign with the Vikings rather than going to the Jets in free agency. That should keep him a limited IDP factor. It's also a reminder that none of these moves will be set until Wednesday afternoon, when free agency actually opens with the new league year.

The Jets have reached agreements with OLB Anthony Barr and ILB C.J. Mosley, according to multiple reports. We haven't seen details yet on Barr's contract, but Mosley will get a monster, 5-year, $85 million pact that includes $51 million guaranteed. That all comes a year after the Jets gave ILB Avery Williamson a sizable 3-year, $22.5 million deal ($16 million guaranteed). Mosley will start next to Williamson inside, taking over for Darron Lee, and should remain a quality IDP contributor. Barr's role will be interesting to watch. He has been a stronger real-life than fantasy provider thus far but has proved to be an efficient pass rusher. If the Jets increase his pass-rush opportunities over what he drew in Minnesota, Barr could be in for a numbers spike. Overall, the Jets' defense has gained considerable upside. And they could yet add more in a strong draft for D-linemen.

The Vikings have ruled LB Eric Kendricks out for Sunday's game against the Lions because of a hamstring injury. Kendricks' absence enhances the fantasy outlook for OLB Anthony Barr, raising his tackle floor.

The Vikings have ruled out LB Anthony Barr (hamstring) and S Andrew Sendejo (groin) for Sunday night's game against the Saints. CB Xavier Rhodes (foot) and DT Linval Joseph (ankle) are questionable for the game. None of the 4 would be a strong IDP candidate anyway. But missing Joseph would hurt the run D and losing Rhodes would damage the coverage. Pro Football Focus grades Barr top-9 among off-ball LBs in run D and pass-rushing. Losing him brightens the outlook a bit for the New Orleans run game.

9:10am EDT 10/16/17

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr came away from Sunday's win over the Packers with a concussion. He'll now need to pass through the league protocol before returning to action.

The Vikings will have CB Xavier Rhodes (hip) and LB Anthony Barr (hamstring) on the field for today's game against the Steelers. Each entered the day questionable. Neither is much of an IDP option.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks (hip) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He left last week's loss at Washington in the 1st quarter but returned to a limited practice Thursday and then a full workout Friday. He seems fine to use as you normally would in IDP leagues. Kendricks' presence takes tackle upside away from LB Anthony Barr and reduces LB Chad Greenway back to a part-time player and IDP non-factor.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's loss at Washington with a hip injury. He initially left on the team's 1st defensive possession after colliding with teammate Anthony Barr. Kendricks returned but left again shortly thereafter. We'll check on his status this week heading into a high-volume matchup with the Cardinals in Week 11. Barr and Chad Greenway each played nearly 100% of the snaps with Kendricks sidelined.

Vikings DT Linval Joseph is doubtful for Sunday night's game at Green Bay after suffering a setback with the injured foot that cost him games earlier this season. Fortunately for Minnesota and IDP owners, all other defenders on the injury report this week are probable. That means you should use S Harrison Smith and DE Everson Griffen as you normally would.
