Anthony Barr not quite a Fantasy rookie stud


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Anthony Barr is listed as a linebacker by the Vikings, a move that, for now, keeps his Fantasy value a little low. Of course, this might have been the case even if he were listed as a defensive end because Barr doesn't come into the NFL with a long track record of success.

Barr, a former running back, is powerful, athletic and fast but has just two years of work on defense at UCLA. The numbers are great -- he totaled 152 tackles and 23.5 sacks in two seasons -- and the coaching staff he'll work with is also great. But for Fantasy purposes he could lag statistically because of his likely role as a strong-side linebacker.

Unless the Vikings rid themselves of Chad Greenway, there's a chance Barr will underwhelm. We'd take him late in seasonal and long-term Fantasy leagues and with a third- or fourth-round pick in rookie-only drafts.

Chad Greenway playing with fractured wrist


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway is proving to be one tough football player. Greenway briefly left Sunday's game against the Bears with a right wrist injury, which he revealed after the game that he's been playing with a fracture in the wrist since October.

Greenway initially sprained his wrist Oct. 21 against the Giants and fractured it six days later against the Packers. He has been able to play through the injury, but he admitted it has been tough tackling at times.

"It's been difficult with my grip, especially, in my right hand," he said, per ESPN. "We tape the heck out of it."

Greenway did record a team-high 10 tackles (six solo) and one sack Sunday. It's been just his second double-digit tackle game since Oct. 21. Still, Greenway surpassed 100-plus tackles for the fourth straight season Sunday.

"This organization has been far too good to the Greenways for me to [sit out this year]," he said. "These guys around this locker room, as trying as this season has been, I love these guys and it hasn't been easy, but we stay together."
