Vikings' D.J. Wonnum: Gets start at defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wonnum started at right defensive end and had two total tackles in Sunday's overtime loss at Cincinnati.

Wonnum played 47 of the defense's 69 snaps. He won the starting role over Stephen Weatherly in the preseason, but was outplayed by him on Sunday, at least by Pro Football Focus's rankings, as Wonnum graded poorly in the pass rush.

Vikings' D.J. Wonnum: Listed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wonnum is listed as the starter at right defensive end in Minnesota's unofficial depth chart opposite Danielle Hunter ahead of a Week 1 matchup at Cincinnati.

Wonnum edged out Stephen Weatherly for the starting nod, but both players will likely be part of a rotation. And Everson Griffen may get most of the snaps on passing situations, which could limit Wonnum's fantasy value.

Vikings' D.J. Wonnum: Tabbed for first NFL start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wonnum is slated to start against New Orleans on Friday with Jalyn Holmes (groin) officially ruled out for the contest, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Wonnum has seen his playing time increase over the second half of the campaign, and he logged a season-high 67 percent of defensive snaps in last week's loss to Chicago. With Holmes unable to go Friday, Wonnum will make his first professional start against the Saints' formidable offense on Christmas Day.

Vikings' D.J. Wonnum: Ready to face Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wonnum (ankle) is not listed on Friday's injury report, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Wonnum missed last weekend's game against the Jaguars, but it looks like he'll be back in action versus Tampa Bay. The rookie fourth-round pick has three sacks on the season.

Vikings' D.J. Wonnum: Ruled out for Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wonnum (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The rookie fourth-round pick has suited up for six straight games, but he'll now have to sit for at least a week as he works to overcome injury. His absence could allow Hercules Mata'afa and/or Jordan Brailford to handle increased rotational roles.

Vikings' D.J. Wonnum: Adds another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wonnum posted two solo tackles and a sack in Monday's 19-13 win over the Bears.

That's now back-to-back games where Wonnum has played at least 50 percent of the snaps on defense, although it doesn't look like a starting role is in the works, as both Ifeadi Odenigbo and Jalyn Holmes are locked into their respective roles. Still, Wonnum is showing promise in his rookie season, as he's recorded three sacks and seven quarterback pressures through eight games.

Vikings' D.J. Wonnum: Heads to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Wonnum in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 117th overall.

Wonnum (6-foot-5, 258 pounds) served as a three-year starter at South Carolina, where he led the team's edge rusher corps. Outstanding reach (34 and 1/8 inch arms) stands to be Wonnum's strongest tool at the next level, though he may face the obstacle of developing his pass-rush technique before earning a consistent role bookending Minnesota's defensive line.
