    49ers' Gerald Hodges: Racks up 13 tackles in win

    Hodges led all 49ers with 13 tackles (12 solo) in Sunday's overtime win over St. Louis. The Rams averaged just 5.12 yards per play Sunday, which meant Hodges had plenty of opportunities to make plays around the line of scrimmage, and he did just that. He has been somewhat of a revelation for the 49ers ever since Michael Wilhoite (ankle) went down in week 13. In the four games in which he was asked to start, Hodges accumulated 39 tackles (30 solo), which are numbers worthy of IDP consideration. It is unclear who the 49ers will start alongside NaVorro Bowman next season (or if they will even run a 3-4 defense), but Hodges definitely proved that he should be considered if the team elects not to bring in a big-name free agent.

    49ers' Gerald Hodges: Racks up nine tackles

    Hodges finished with nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Hodges followed up last week's 10-tackle performance with another strong showing. He has had sneaky value starting alongside NaVorro Bowman in the last three games, averaging 8.7 tackles over that span. With St. Louis' run-heavy offense coming to town, there should be plenty of tackles to go around between Hodges and Bowman.

    49ers' Gerald Hodges: Records 10 tackles in loss

    Hodges recorded a season-high 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Hodges - along with NaVorro Bowman - did a great job of stuffing Cincinnati's rushing attack. In two games since taking over as starter, Hodges has recorded 17 tackles. He doesn't have a huge track record of success, but he is proving to be a cheap source of tackles in IDP leagues.

    49ers' Gerald Hodges: Steps in for injured Wilhoite

    Hodges was asked to step into a starting role after Michael Wilhoite (ankle) left Sunday's game against the Bears. Hodges ended the day with six tackles (five solo) while playing 65 of the team's 78 defensive snaps. He brings a similar output to the man he is replacing, which is a modest amount of tackles and not much else. If Wilhoite is forced to sit out Sunday's tilt against the Browns, then Hodges should get the nod to start alongside NaVorro Bowman.

    Vikings LB Eric Kendricks could see bigger role in defense

    After trading Gerald Hodges to the 49ers, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the team feels good about linebacker Eric Kendricks, 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports. Hodges had been getting most of the snaps in Minnesota's base defense, with Kendricks replacing him in nickel and dime formations. The rookie may now get a shot at an every-down role, though the Vikings haven't said anything to that effect. If he does take on Hodges' snaps, Kendricks would immediately be a viable IDP in most leagues.

    Vikings reportedly trade linebacker Gerald Hodges to 49ers

    Linebacker Gerald Hodges was traded from the Vikings to the 49ers on Tuesday, sources told NFL Network's Rand Getlin. Hodges started three of Minnesota's first four games, but he's only been a part-time player since Week 1, typically coming off the field whenever the Vikings use their nickel defense. This trade suggests Vikings rookie Eric Kendricks has been deemed ready for a three-down role. Hodges, on the other hand, may get a shot to replace Michael Wilhoite in the 49ers' starting lineup, but a three-down role is probably out of the question.

    Vikings to start Gerald Hodges at middle linebacker in Week 2

    Vikings LB Gerald Hodges will start at middle linebacker this week against Detroit, head coach Mike Zimmer told the ESPN. Hodges started at middle linebacker in Monday's loss to San Francisco and had eight total tackles, but coach Mike Zimmer wasn't happy with his performance. It looks like Hodges will start another week, but 2015 second-round draft pick Eric Kendricks may eventually take over the job.

    Vikings' Zimmer calls Gerald Hodges' performance Week 1 'average'

    Vikings linebacker Gerald Hodges started at middle linebacker in Monday's loss to San Francisco and had eight total tackles. However, head coach Mike Zimmer wasn't happy with his performance, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Average. At best," Zimmer said about all three of his starting linebackers. Hodges won the job over Eric Kendricks and Audie Cole. Kendricks played just 10 snaps compared to Hodges' 63, while Cole didn't play on defense. Zimmer was also down on Kendricks' performance, so it looks like Hodges will get another week as the starter. Kendricks, a 2015 second-round draft pick, should take over the job eventually this season.

    Gerald Hodges could end up as Vikings' starting middle linebacker

    Gerald Hodges will start at middle linebacker for the Vikings during Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys and if all goes well, he could keep the job to start the regular season, according to Audie Cole started the first two preseason games at middle linebacker, but coach Mike Zimmer opted for the change after watching film of all the linebacker candidates. "He's looked good," Zimmer said of Hodges. "The first week, it was more learning, because it's different alignments (than playing outside linebacker). He wasn't perfect with all that stuff. But when he's played, he's done good."

    Aside from ruled-out tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin), the Vikings are in fine shape as they await their Sunday game against Washington.
