    Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Records first interception of season in win over Green Bay

    Rhodes had three tackles and an interception in Sunday's win over Green Bay. The third-year corner out of Florida State plucked his first interception of the season in Sunday's finale to help the Vikings wrap up the division crown. He posted career-highs in tackles (58) and passes defensed (11) this season in addition to recording his second career interception. However, his lack of interceptions and passes defensed relative to other IDP options in the secondary have made him a middling option thus far in his career. Still, Rhodes is a talented enough player to where he can begin translating his natural abilities into quantifiable fantasy value next season, which would be perfect timing given it will be the final year of his rookie contract.

    Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes is probable for Sunday

    Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Denver. A full practice participant throughout the week, Rhodes should be fine for Sunday's tough matchup with Broncos wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Rhodes isn't one of the better IDP options at cornerback, but Sunday's matchup could lead to an unusual number of opportunities for tackles and interceptions, as the Broncos funnel a large percentage of their targets to the aformentioned receivers.

    Vikings' Zimmer optimistic CB Xavier Rhodes will play Week 4

    Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is optimistic cornerback Xavier Rhodes (concussion) will play Sunday against the Broncos, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. "Actually, he's feeling great today," Zimmer said of Rhodes on Monday. "He's already passed one test [in the NFL's concussion protocol]. I think he should be ready." Heading into Week 3's action, Rhodes had carved out some IDP utility by recording 13 tackles over the Vikings' first two games. Though he notched just three tackles on Sunday before his exit from the game, it looks like the cornerback has a solid shot to avoid missing any additional time.

    Vikings will consider starting Trae Waynes with Xavier Rhodes

    When the Vikings selected Trae Waynes in the first round of the draft on Thursday, it was the second time in three years they've used a first-round pick on a corner. The Vikings selected Xavier Rhodes in 2013, and it's only natural to consider pairing the two DBs. "To get two young corners like that and you watch Chicago take the receiver from West Virginia, knowing the receivers that we face in Green Bay and knowing the receivers we face in Detroit," GM Rick Spielman said, per Vikings.com. "To have to young corners that I know this staff has done a tremendous job of helping our young guys. To get another young player on that side of the ball, especially a player at a position that is in Coach Zimmer's wheelhouse. We are going to have to play some good defense and we were able to really improve last year, and I think adding a player like a Trae Waynes will definitely upgrade our defense." That doesn't mean Waynes is guaranteed a starting spot. " I know we signed Terence Newman, and we have Captain Munnerlyn. We have Josh Robinson," Spielman said. "We have a lot of depth at corner right now. Corners take some time to develop, he is not going to be pushed into starting right away, that will be determined as we go through this offseason program, as we go through training camp, how quickly he comes along, but we also have the luxury with the depth that we have at the cornerback position and if he is ready, the coaches will determine when he is ready." Coach Mike Zimmer was more aggressive. "I anticipate everybody to compete for a starting job," he said.
