Vikings' Everson Griffen: Records 13th sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen had five total tackles and his 13th sack in Sunday's loss at Carolina.

After recording a sack in each of Minnesota's first eight games, Griffen had failed to record a sack in two of his last three games. He has a nice matchup in Week 14 against a struggling Bengals offensive line that has given up the 12th most sacks in the NFL.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Compiles two Thanksgiving sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen racked up four solo tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble in Thursday's 30-23 win over the Lions.

Griffen continued to be a workhorse on the Vikings' defensive front, playing 55 of 59 defensive snaps. The eighth-year pro has posted a career-high 12 sacks and three forced fumbles this season, but his consistency is what's most promising. Griffen only has one game in 2017 without a sack, making him a valuable weekly IDP option.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Logs full practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (foot) put in a full practice Tuesday.

Griffen was listed on the Vikings' injury report heading into Week 12 preparations despite having played through the foot issue with no reported problems in Sunday's win over the Rams. The defensive end wasn't able to register a sack in the contest, however, the first time in his nine appearances this season that has happened. He'll try to get back on track Thursday against a Lions squad that has allowed the third-most sacks (33) in the league this season.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Questionable, but expected to play Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings will list Griffen (foot) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, but Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects the defensive end to play in the contest, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

The foot injury has limited Griffen's practice participation this week, but the 29-year-old looks like he'll be able to fight through the pain in a matchup of two of the NFC's top teams. Griffen's 10 sacks on the season are tied for third in the NFL, and he's supplemented that pass rushing with 29 total stops and two forced fumbles.
