Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Tallies seven tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks logged seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Kendricks has at least six tackles in every game this season but hasn't made many big plays. While he is just 10 tackles short of his career-high 113, he has no interceptions and just half a sack on the year.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Records 10 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks piled up 10 tackles (four solo) in Monday's loss to the Seahawks.

Kendricks reached double-digit tackles for the fourth time this year. The middle linebacker is currently on pace for 128 tackles, comfortably the highest total on the Vikings' defense, and has proven to be a fairly consistent performer week in and week out. He will look to keep it rolling against the Lions in Week 14.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Tallies 12 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had 12 tackles (six solo) and two passes defensed during Sunday's win over the Lions.

Kendricks has now reached double-digit tackles in three of the last four games and also has three straight games with two pass breakups. The 27-year-old has been a dependable IDP option with 61 tackles (44 solo), a half-sack and a forced fumble through seven games.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Ten total tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had 10 total tackles, 0.5 sacks, 1.5 tackles for a loss, a QB hit and had two passes defensed in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

Kendricks has been averaging slightly more tackles this year (8.2 per game compared to 7.7 last season), while rating well in pass coverage. He's never been a big contributor in the pass rush despite Sunday's output, however, with one sack each of the last two seasons.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Leads game in tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks recorded a game-high 12 total tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to Chicago.

Kendricks was present for all 72 of the defense's snaps and even saw the field for five snaps on special teams. The 27-year-old has been solid for Minnesota so far this season, racking up 33 total tackles and three pass breakups over the first four games.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Six tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had six total tackles, defended two passes and had a quarterback hit in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

He played on 68 of the defense's 74 snaps, as some of the starters got rest late in a blowout win. He'll be a good source of tackles again as the starting middle linebacker who stays on the field in passing situations.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Participates in offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (hamstring) participated in Minnesota's June minicamp, Eric Smith of the Vikings' official site reports.

Kendricks sustained a hamstring injury Week 15 against Miami and was forced to sit out the final two games of the season. Regardless, the 27-year-old was still able to pile up 108 total tackles, seven pass breakups, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 2018.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Restructures contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (hamstring) restructured his contract Tuesday to make room for the signing of first-round pick Garrett Bradbury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kendricks just signed a five-year, $50 million contract with the Vikings last season, but experiencing a tight squeeze when it comes to cap space, the Vikings had to do some re-working of money. Kendricks' contract is now likely back-loaded as a result.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Eclipses 100 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (hamstring) finished the 2018 season with 108 tackles (63 solo), two interceptions, one sack and a forced fumble in 14 games.

Kendricks suffered the hamstring injury Week 15 against the Dolphins and was sidelined for the final two games of the year. The 26-year-old led the Vikings in combined tackles, though Harrison Smith led the way in the solo category with 67. Kendricks signed a five-year, $50 million extension with the Vikings in April, and he could be relied upon even more heavily in 2019 with Anthony Barr currently set to become a free agent.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Will sit season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Kendricks will miss his second straight game due to a lingering hamstring injury. In the fourth-year linebacker's absence, the Bears could have an easier time running the ball. Expect Eric Wilson to draw the start at middle linebacker as long as Kendricks remains sidelined.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kendricks sat out last week's win over the Lions due to a hamstring issue and has yet to return to practice. If Kendricks were to miss Sunday's divisional tilt against the Bears, Kentrell Brothers, Ben Gedeon, Eric Wilson and/or Devante Downs would once again benefit from increased defensive roles.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Ruled out with hammy issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Detroit, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Kendricks has played 97.7 percent of Minnesota's defensive snaps this season and easily leads the team with 108 tackles. Kentrell Brothers is next up on the depth chart at middle linebacker, but he won't necessarily replace Kendricks in an every-down role, as the VIkings may also allot more snaps for Ben Gedeon, Eric Wilson and/or Devante Downs. The Detroit backfield may have a slightly easier time with Kendricks unavailable, but this is still a difficult matchup for a struggling offense.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Absent from Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Kendricks appears to be nursing a knee injury sustained during Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The 26-year-old donned a wrap around his right knee Wednesday, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com, and was the only Viking to not participate in practice. If Kendricks is unable to play against the Lions in Week 16, Devante Downs would benefit from increased defensive snaps.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Tallies first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had six tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Kendricks also added a pass breakup, but the six tackles represents his lowest total since Week 7 against the Jets. The 26-year-old is nearing a career-high in tackles (108 combined) and has two interceptions this season to double his career total to four.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Nabs second interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had seven tackles (three solo) and an interception in Monday's loss to the Seahawks.

After going through the first 11 games without an interception, Kendricks now has an interception in two consecutive games. The 26-year-old is poised to set career high as he has 102 tackles (60 solo) through 13 games, after posting 113 total tackles in 2017.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Set to face Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (ribs) is active for tonight's game against the Seahawks.

Though he was always expected to play, Kendricks was listed as questionable heading into Monday's matchup after injuring his ribs last week. His availability means he didn't suffer a setback, and he will assume his regular role as Minnesota's starting middle linebacker.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (ribs) is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Seahawks.

The prevailing sentiment seems to be that Kendricks will indeed play, but fantasy owners may want to be cautious given we likely won't know the 26-year-old's status until closer to Monday night kickoff. Devante Downs and Ben Gedeon would likely step in at middle linebacker on the off chance Kendricks misses any time.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: No practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (ribs) did not practice Friday, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.

Kendricks has yet to participate in practice this week despite optimism that he'll be ready to play Monday at Seattle. The 26-year-old's Week 14 availability will likely be contingent on the extent of his participation in Saturday's practice session.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Hopeful for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (ribs) is expected to play Monday against the Seahawks, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kendricks was a non-participant at practice Thursday but is apparently still on track to play Monday at Seattle. Friday and Saturday's practice sessions should provide additional clarification, and unless the 26-year-old is unable to retake the practice field, his positive outlook seems unlikely to change.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
