Chad Greenway could start at middle linebacker
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Chad Greenway is a realistic option to start at middle linebacker, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

" It's a possibility. We keep working him in there," Zimmer said. "We're just trying to find the best 11 players we can and then figure out where the rest of the guys are going to fit. It’s not out of the question, but time will tell a little bit more on that."

Zimmer was a strong-side linebacker last season for the Vikings.

Anthony Barr not quite a Fantasy rookie stud
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Anthony Barr is listed as a linebacker by the Vikings, a move that, for now, keeps his Fantasy value a little low. Of course, this might have been the case even if he were listed as a defensive end because Barr doesn't come into the NFL with a long track record of success.

Barr, a former running back, is powerful, athletic and fast but has just two years of work on defense at UCLA. The numbers are great -- he totaled 152 tackles and 23.5 sacks in two seasons -- and the coaching staff he'll work with is also great. But for Fantasy purposes he could lag statistically because of his likely role as a strong-side linebacker.

Unless the Vikings rid themselves of Chad Greenway, there's a chance Barr will underwhelm. We'd take him late in seasonal and long-term Fantasy leagues and with a third- or fourth-round pick in rookie-only drafts.

Chad Greenway, Harrison Smith both fine
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway and defensive back Harrison Smith, who were listed as probable on Friday's injury report, are active for Week 16 at Cincinnati.

Greenway was able to practice in full all week despite a wrist injury. Smith was limited with a toe injury that sidelined him for eight straight games before he returned last week.
