Minnesota Vikings D/ST surrenders 35 points in Week 17 win

Minnesota Vikings D/ST racked up a sack, an INT, and a fumble recovery in the Vikings’ 37-35 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

This wasn't a great game for Minnesota's defense, though there's no surprise here. This unit has plenty of work to do in the offseason to come back more respectably in 2021.

Minnesota Vikings D/ST gets rolled in Week 16 loss

Minnesota Vikings D/ST nabs two interceptions in the Vikings' 52-33 loss to the Saints on Christmas.

Fantasy Impact

The unit surrendered nearly 600 yards in the blowout loss, and the two interceptions were the result of a pair of Drew Brees underthrows. Week 17's matchup with Detroit is more favorable, but this unit isn't one to trust for fantasy managers.

Minnesota Vikings D/ST rolled by Chicago in Week 15 loss

Minnesota Vikings D/ST totaled one sack and an INT in the Vikings’ 33-27 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a poor showing from Minnesota's defense, which was rolled by David Montgomery throughout the afternoon. MIN D/ST won't be a recommended play against Drew Brees and the Saints in Week 16.

Minnesota Vikings D/ST gets shellacked in Week 14 loss

Minnesota Vikings DST failed to register a sack or force a turnover in the Vikings’ 26-14 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Nothing to see here, folks. Tom Brady and Co. came out firing after the Bucs’ bye week, and Minnesota simply had no answer. MIN DST will get a more favorable matchup in Week 15 against Chicago, but there are better options available on your waiver wire.

Minnesota Vikings D/ST provides solid effort in OT win

Minnesota Vikings D/ST totaled two sacks, two fumble recoveries, and two INTs in the Vikings’ 27-24 OT win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was an impressive showing for the Vikings defense, as the team compiled a "Noah's Ark" of defensive statistics, with a pair each of sacks, fumble recoveries, and picks. Similar numbers shouldn't be expected next week when the team takes on Tampa Bay.
