Chargers Agree With Linval Joseph

The Los Angeles Chargers agreed to a two-year, $17 million deal with former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph on Wednesday, according to sources. The deal includes another $2 million in incentives. Joseph will help bolster the interior of an already pretty strong Chargers overall defense led by pass-rusher Joey Bosa. The 31-year-old has spent the last six seasons of his career in Minnesota, being named to the Pro Bowl in 2016 and 2017. He had three sacks, 44 tackles (26 solo), six tackles for loss, six QB hits and a forced fumble in 13 games in 2019 for the Vikes. You should be happy if you own LA's defense/special teams this year.

Linval Joseph Set To Return Monday Night

Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee) will be available to play on Monday night against the Seahawks just three weeks removed from surgery on the meniscus in his right knee. Joseph has 31 total tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble in his nine games with Minnesota this year. His presence in the trenches on Monday is bad news for both Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Carson fumbled two more times in Week 13 and comes into this one as more of a risky RB2 in danger of losing more touches to Penny.

Linval Joseph A Full Participant At Practice

Minnesota Vikings run-stuffing defensive tackle Linval Joseph was a full participant in practice on Tuesday, his first full practice since recovering from offseason surgery. Joseph is an elite interior defender, and his return undoubtedly boosts the prospects of the Vikings defense. This is a deep and talented defensive roster at all three levels with lots of experience. They've been a very consistent fantasy unit during coach Zimmer's entire run, finishing 10th, 8th, 1st, 12th, and 6th in total fantasy points from 2014-2018. Though it is still the preseason, the Vikings held the Seattle Seahawks to just 221 total yards in Week 2's 25-19 victory. The Vikings are being drafted as DEF6 currently, but it may be wise to target them a bit higher. Look for Zimmer to dial up the pressure (slightly) in the Week 3 tune-up on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals.
