Vikings' Linval Joseph: Records 68 tackles in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph recorded 68 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one fumble recovery over 16 games in 2017.

Joseph backed up his stellar 77-tackle, four-sack 2016 campaign with another strong season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' fourth-ranked defensive tackle against the run and eighth overall at his position. His on-field success translated to the fantasy realm considering the eight-year vet finished as the 13th-highest scoring defensive lineman in standard IDP scoring. Under contract with the Vikings for years to come, Joseph should continue to produce at a high level and remain a strong fantasy asset.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Racks up five combined tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph recorded a postseason career-high five tackles, with one tackle for loss, but the Vikings fell to the Eagles on Sunday in the NFC championship game, 38-7.

Joseph is representing the NFC in the Pro Bowl for the second consecutive season as a vital contributor to the Vikings' top-five rush defense, which allowed a meager 3.7 yards per carry in 2017. The veteran out of East Carolina was able to record more sacks over the past two seasons (7.5) than he had in any previous two-year span of his pro career, and he signed a $12.5 million per year deal last summer which could have him playing on this talented Minnesota defensive line through 2022.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Ten tackles in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph had ten total tackles and a sack in Sunday's 31-24 loss at Carolina.

Joseph now has 3.5 sacks this season, leaving him well on pace to exceed last season's career high of four sacks. 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.
