Vikings DE Everson Griffen (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Bears, as he said he would be. Use him as you normally would in your IDP lineup. NT Linval Joseph (foot) is out once again, though, which hurts the Vikings' team D. They remain a streaming option if you're in need but will also be missing S Harrison Smith and OLB Anthony Barr. That makes Minnesota a risky option.

Recent Shark Bites

Vikings S Harrison Smith (hamstring), DT Linval Joseph (knee) and S Anthony Harris (groin) are active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. Each entered the day questionable but is ready if you waited on him for IDP use.

Vikings DT Linval Joseph (knee), S Harrison Smith (hamstring) and S Anthony Harris (groin) are questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. Joseph and Smith each progressed to full Saturday workouts and look likely to make it back for the game. Harris spent the full week limited and isn't worth waiting on for IDP lineups.

Vikings S Andrew Sendejo (groin) will miss his 4th straight game today. He's inactive for the clash with the Lions. Lead CB Xavier Rhodes, however, will play through a "questionable" tag for a foot issue.

Vikings lead CB Xavier Rhodes (foot) is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. That can only help the already positive fantasy outlook for Saints WR Michael Thomas. DT Linval Joseph (ankle) is active after missing last week's game. The Minnesota defense will also be without starters S Andrew Sendejo and LB Anthony Barr.

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.
