Eric Kendricks Excels In Coverage

Minnesota Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks was Pro Football Focus' highest-ranked linebacker last season among those with a minimum of 300 snaps. The linebacker excelled mostly in coverage, with just an 83.9 passer rating allowed when in coverage, which is around 20 points lower than the league average for linebackers. Kendricks, a former second-round selection in 2015, was a Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro for the first time in his career in 2019. He has just nine sacks in his five NFL seasons, but Kendricks makes up for it by standing out in coverage and with his tackling. Kendricks has 100-plus combined tackles in four of his five seasons, all in the last four years. He doesn't have a high ceiling in IDP leagues because of his lack of sacks, but Kendricks is a low-end fantasy linebacker for his tackling abilities in coverage.

Vikings Signing Eric Kendricks To Five-Year Extension

The Minnesota Vikings are signing linebacker Eric Kendricks to a five-year, $50 million extension, according to a source. Kendricks will receive $25 million guaranteed. Kendricks is a strength for Minnesota's defense and has recorded 100-plus tackles each of the last two years. He also had 92 tackles in his rookie season in 2015. Kendricks added one sack and an interception returned for a score in 2017. He'll be firmly in the mix in IDP leagues in one of the NFL's stronger defenses in 2018.
