Vikings D/ST quiet in Week 18

The Vikings D/ST turned in a quiet performance Sunday, failing to force a turnover and recording just one sack in a 30-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact

The unit was unable to find many answers for a strong Detroit offensive attack, allowing 381 total offensive yards in a losing effort. The defense will be one to watch in 2024-25 with defensive coordinator Brian Flores making significant adjustments late in the season.

Minnesota Vikings D/ST decimated on Sunday Night Football

The Vikings' defense allowed 33 points, recovered one fumble, and did not force a sack during their 33-10 loss to the Packers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Outside of the special teams fumble, this unit was largely unsuccessful on Sunday night versus Green Bay. They should be avoided in all leagues against the Lions next week.

Vikings D/ST quiet in Week 16 loss

The Vikings D/ST turned in a quiet performance in Week 16, forcing just one turnover (one fumble recovery) and recording one sack in the Vikings' 30-24 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

The unit especially struggled to contain a strong Detroit rushing attack, allowing 143 rushing yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort. The D/ST has been difficult for fantasy managers to trust for much of the season and should remain a risky option in a Week 17 matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Vikings D/ST struggles late in Week 15

The Vikings D/ST allowed 27 points on 378 total yards with four sacks and one interception in Week 15 against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

After Minnesota dominated through three quarters, they fell apart in the fourth quarter where the Bengals found the end zone three times. They later allowed a 44-yard catch to Tyler Boyd that won the Bengals the game in overtime. They'll be a bit tough to trust next week against the Lions.

Fantasy Impact
