RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Rhodes graded as one of the top cover corners in the league in the second half of his sophomore season. However, that hasn't translated into fantasy stats as he's had just one interception in his career and had 48 tackles each of the last two seasons. He'll start at cornerback and the Vikings are hoping he'll become the leader of the secondary.
The 2013 first-round draft pick emerged as about the only reliable option in Minnesota's secondary last season. He had 48 tackles (41 solo), 10 passes defended and one forced fumble in 13 games. He'll start at cornerback this season opposite Captain Munnerlyn and the Vikings are counting on him improving upon already decent grades as a pass defender.
Rookie Rhodes will start alongside Chris Cook as he looks to help a struggling young secondary.
