Summary

The Vikings continue to follow the trend of doing well against the rush (11th) but struggle against the pass (24th). The defense ranked middle of the pack defensively last season, coming in at 16. The Vikings have some potential, though, mostly because of defensive end Jared Allen, who is a sack machine. And the secondary has a chance to improve because of rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who should find his way into the starting lineup immediately. Defensive tackle Kevin Williams is getting older but remains a top run stuffer. The special teams will have Marcus Sherels most likely handle the return duties. He had a punt return for a touchdown last season and seems to emerging as a return man. Fantasy Outlook: This is another defense/special teams unit that is best suited for spot start duty. They have some sack potential and will get a few turnovers but won't be great in terms of yards and points allowed. The Vikings could improve some from last season, though, with a little more younger talent getting playing time.
