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.
