2018 Fantasy Outlook
Gedeon, a 2017 fourth-rounder, earned a weakside linebacker role last year in the preseason, ultimately logging nine starts. However, because the 6-foot-2, 244-pounder tended to come off the field whenever the Vikings went to one of their nickel packages, Gedeon played less snaps than a typical starter would. Nevertheless, winning a starting job out of the gate as a rookie was an impressive feat, and Gedeon will have room to grow during the final three years of his first NFL contract. Read Past Outlooks

Gedeon sat out last week's win over the Packers due to a concussion, but he has now cleared the league-mandated protocol and is on track to suit up Sunday against the Patriots. The second-year linebacker will fill his usual role as weak-side linebacker.
