Vikings again hold their own
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Vikings DST hasn't endeared itself to Fantasy owners with its performance so far this season, but considering its last three games have come against the Falcons, Saints and Patriots, three historically prolific offenses, its numbers really aren't so bad.

The Vikings limited the visiting Falcons to 28 points on 411 yards in Week 4, picking off quarterback Matt Ryan twice and taking him down once.

In the one favorable matchup they had Week 1 at St. Louis, they allowed just six points on 318 yards, recording five sacks and two interceptions. They even contributed a touchdown.

Unfortunately, the road doesn't get any easier for them Week 5 at Green Bay, so you can leave the Vikings DST on waivers in Fantasy.
