|Vikings have nine players injured players listed for Week 4 |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/26/14) The Vikings have listed nine players on their final injury report leading up to a Week 4 home clash against the Falcons. Tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) and linebacker Chad Greenway were the only players not to participate in practice Friday. As expected, both were ruled out for Sunday.
The only player deemed questionable was cornerback Josh Robinson (hamstring), who was a limited participant in practice Thursday and Friday leading up to the game. The following players were ruled probable: Defensive tackle Linval Joseph (shoulder), safety Harrison Smith (knee), linebacker Brandon Watts (knee), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (shoulder), linebacker Michael Mauti (foot) and wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring).
|Harrison Smith not much of a factor |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/21/14) Vikings defensive back Harrison Smith, who had a sack, an interception and a touchdown in Week 1 and followed it up with eight tackles in Week 2, wasn't as much of factor Week 3 at New Orleans. He had four tackles, including two solo.
Smith had 58 tackles in eight games last year after recording 104 in 2012.
|Vikings defense comes up big in win vs. Rams |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/7/14) The Vikings defense held the Rams without a touchdown Sunday in a blowout 34-6 win on the road in Week 1.
The defense racked up five sacks against the overmatched Rams line and secured two interceptions, with Harrison Smith returning one of the picks 81 yards for a touchdown. The defense could have had an even bigger day, but they were unable to recover any of the Rams' four fumbles. The Vikings figure to have a much tougher test defensively in Week 2 when the Patriots come to town.
|Addition of coach Jerry Gray should boost Harrison Smith |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/1/14) When the Vikings hired Jerry Gray to coach their defensive backs, they added a guy who made a very big imprint on both Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, the Seahawks' dynamic safety duo. Now Gray believes he can do the same thing with Harrison Smith, the Vikings' best safety.
"We're going to get him more involved," Gray said per ESPN. "He'll be blitzing some. He'll be covering some. He'll be in the middle of the field. The thing that we're trying to do right now is, figure out what he's best at, and then put him in that position. Can he be one of the better safeties in the league, doing what we're teaching him here?"
Smith missed half of last season with a turf toe injury but still had 58 total tackles and a pair of interceptions.
|Vikings safety Harrison Smith missed eight games last year with a turf toe injury and still delivered great numbers on average. He had over seven total tackles per game with a pair of interceptions and three passes defensed. The belief is that Smith will get a huge chance to put up numbers with the addition of defensive backs coach Jerry Gray, who worked with the Seahawks' safety duo once upon a time. It all should lead him to ample opportunities to make plays. We like him as a No. 1 Fantasy DB worth a mid-round selection.
