The Vikings defense should be much closer to whole Sunday night against the Giants. S Harrison Smith (knee, hamstring), DT Linval Joseph (foot) and OLB Anthony Barr (groin) are all listed as probable after practicing all week. Barr and Joseph returned to full practices Friday after being limited the previous 2 days. Smith remained limited throughout the week. He seems like the biggest risk for aggravation, considering Smith's dealing with both knee and hamstring trouble. He'll carry high upside into the game, but you'll need to balance that against the injury risk as you consider your DB options. Joseph told the St. Paul Pioneer Press earlier this week: "I'm feeling good. Best I've felt in a long time." So he looks like a decent DL bet, especially considering how well he was performing before his injury. The Minnesota team D carries some fantasy upside against a Giants offense missing its best player, WR Odell Beckham.
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.
Vikings S Andrew Sendejo will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday with a groin injury. DT Linval Joseph is questionable for the visit to the Jets. He's listed with ankle, knee and shoulder injuries and put in just a single limited practice on Friday. We'd try not to use Joseph in IDP lineups this week even if he's active.
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.
