Vikings' Trae Waynes: Vikings pick up fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnesota exercised the fifth-year option in Waynes' contract.

Waynes saw a lot of targets playing opposite 2017 first-team All-Pro Xavier Rhodes, as opposing offenses tend not to throw the latter's way. While Waynes largely struggled in coverage in his first two seasons in the league, the 2015 first-round pick turned a corner during the second half of the 2017 campaign. Still, he could face competition for his starting role at some point from 2018 first-round draft pick Mike Hughes.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Finishes year strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes racked up 65 tackles, one sack, 11 pass breakups and two interceptions across 16 games in 2017.

Waynes sees a lot of action playing opposite 2017 first-team All-Pro Xavier Rhodes, as opposing offenses tend not to throw the latter's way. While Waynes has largely struggled in that role the past couple of seasons, the 2015 first-rounder looked to have turned a corner during the second half of the 2017 campaign. In fact, his performance is likely a big reason why the Vikings ultimately finished the year as the NFL's top-ranked defense. Reality aside, Waynes' development has yet to make waves in fantasy formats, rendering him unworthy of IDP consideration ahead of the 2018 season.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Snags second interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes racked up six solo tackles and an interception Sunday against the Packers.

Waynes' interception was impressive but it was against an inexperienced Brett Hundley with just 21 seconds left in a two-possession game. Still, Waynes is on pace to eclipse his career-high 50 tackles, as he currently has 37 tackles (32 solo) on the season.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Nabs first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes had four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Buccaneers.

It was Waynes' first interception of the season and fourth in his career, and he also had his first pass breakup of the season. The interception came on a deep pass intended for DeSean Jackson in the second quarter as the Vikings defense stifled Jameis Winston throughout the first half.
