Fantasy Impact:

The 2x Pro Bowler was placed on IR shortly before the start of the season and it was assumed he would finish rehabbing and return to the team. The Vikings 1-5 record may have something to do with the DE's decision to think long-term and not rush back. This announcement came shortly after news that DE Yannick Ngakoue was being traded to the Ravens after only playing six games for Minnesota. The Vikings D/ST is clearly in a full-on rebuild and should be avoided by fantasy managers at all costs.
