by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter notched three tackles (two solo) and 0.5 sacks during Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Chiefs.

Hunter has now made an impact in the sack column in eight of nine games this season. The 24-year-old will look to continue his destructive momentum Week 10 versus Dallas.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Reaches quarterback again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter had three solo tackles and a sack during Sunday's win against the Lions.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Another week, another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter notched three tackles, including his team-leading sixth sack of the season, in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Eagles.

Apart from Minnesota's loss to the Bears in Week 4, Hunter has recorded a sack in every game this season. Effective against both the pass and the run, expect No. 99 to continue seeing a heavy workload on Mike Zimmer's rotation-heavy defensive line. Hunter, if he hasn't arrived already, is approaching elite status as a defensive player in the NFL.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Notches pair of sacks at MetLife
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter finished Sunday's win over the Giants with seven tackles and a pair of sacks.

Now with five sacks on the year, good for most on the Vikings to this point in the season, Hunter has clearly established himself as Minnesota's primary pass disruptor. He's also no slouch when it comes to defending the run, finishing Sunday's win over New York tied for the team lead with seven tackles, two coming on takedowns of Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. Playing on a defensive unit that boasts talent at all three levels, Hunter could very well be the most valuable member of the Vikings defense this season.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Sacks adding up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter recorded two tackles, one solo, and a sack across 41 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Hunter is the clubhouse leader in sacks so far this season in Minnesota, which is not all that surprising considering his 14.5-sack campaign in 2018. He'll now shift his focus to wreaking havoc on Mitch Trubisky and the Bears.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Records another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter notched nine tackles (six solo) and one sack during Sunday's 21-16 loss to the Packers.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Notches sack versus Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter made four solo tackles -- two for a loss -- and a sack in Sunday's 28-12 win over the Falcons.

Hunter was explosive in 2018 with a career-high 14.5 sacks, which ranked fourth in the league, and he's carrying that momentum into the new season. He's clearly the Vikings' top pass rusher, and he has a juicy Week 2 matchup on tap versus Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who was just sacked five times by the Bears.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Totals 14.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter had 72 tackles (51 solo),14.5 sacks and returned a fumble for a touchdown in 16 games during 2018.

Hunter set a career high in tackles and hasn't missed a game since his rookie season in 2014. The 24-year-old's sack total tied for fourth in the NFL, trailing only the likes of Aaron Donald, J.J. Watt and Chris Jones. The Vikings signed the 2015 third-round pick to a five-year, $72 million extension over the summer, and he rewarded them with the best season of his career.

Hunter last registered a sack when he exploded for 3.5 sacks Week 9 against the Lions and he's now tied for third in the league with 12.5. If the 24-year-old gets another sack this season, it will set a career high. The Vikings will take on the Dolphins in Week 15.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Monster day rushing passer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter had 3.5 sacks, four QB hits, nine total tackles and returned a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's win at Detroit.

Hunter leads the NFL with 11.5 sacks and is just one sack short of his career high (12.5 in 2016). With Everson Griffen back to full strength (1.5 sacks Sunday), Hunter and Minnesota's pass rush look back to full gear for the second half of the season.

He's already improved upon the seven sacks he registered in 2017 and appears on his way to a career year. Looking ahead, Hunter and the Vikings will face off against the Saints in Week 8.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (groin) is not on Friday's injury report, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Coach Mike Zimmer said that Hunter's lack of practice Thursday was "part of the plan," so it appears that the starting defensive end's Week 7 availability was never in question. Hunter will suit up against a Jets O-line which has struggled against the pass rush.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (groin) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice.

Hunter was a surprise addition to Thursday's injury report, popping up with a groin injury of undisclosed severity.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Posts two sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter recorded five tackles (three solo), including two sacks, in Sunday's win over Arizona.

Hunter recorded two sacks for the first time this season and is now up to seven on the year, tying his total for all of last season. He's tied for the NFL lead in sacks and has recorded at least one in all six games. He's proving to be one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL and a top IDP option. He'll aim to continue taking down the quarterback in Week 7 against the Jets.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter had six tackles, a sack and a tackle for a loss in Thursday's loss at the Rams. It was his fourth sack this season.

Minnesota's defense struggled to generate much of a pass rush against the Rams, but Hunter can't be blamed as he had three QB hurries, according to Pro Football Focus.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Five tackles and sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter recorded five tackles (all solo), including a sack in Sunday's loss to Buffalo.

Hunter now has three sacks in as many weeks, and he's well on his way to meeting or exceeding his 7.0 sacks from a year ago. He'll look to maintain his strong, consistent play in Week 4 when the Vikings head to Los Angeles to take on the Rams.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
