Vikings' Linval Joseph: Records first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph had nine tackles (six solo) and a sack in Sunday's 14-7 loss to the Lions.

The sack was Joseph's first of the season and he also managed to double his tackle output Sunday. The veteran nose tackle remains a reliable anchor on the Vikings defensive line, but don't expect the high tackle total to be a weekly theme.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Three tackles in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph had three total tackles in Monday's win over the Saints.

He started at nose tackle and played 35 of 62 snaps on defense. He remains an elite force against the run, but has 16.5 sacks in 97 career games, however, so his IDP value is limited.
