2019 Fantasy Outlook
While injuries to Preston Brown and Vontaze Burfict were tough on the Bengals' defense, it was Vigil's knee injury Week 6 against the Steelers that really destroyed the unit. Vigil was the team's leading tackler at the time, and he missed most of that game, subsequent blowout losses to the Chiefs and Saints, and a shootout against the Bucs where the Bengals held on for dear life. When Vigil finally returned in Week 13, he wasn't nearly as effective for the next couple of weeks before finally tallying 17 tackles in Week 17. Vigil is much stronger against the run, allowing 8.1 yards per attempt and an opposing QB rating of 107.8 when targeted in the passing game, and has just one sack and one interception in his pro career. He'll start alongside Brown and probably rookie Germaine Pratt. Read Past Outlooks

Stellar in loss
LBCincinnati Bengals
October 14, 2019
Vigil racked up 13 tackles (10 solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
Vigil was in the right place at the right time when tight end Mark Andrews tried to hurdle a defender and the ball ended up in the hands of Vigil. The 26-year-old recorded double-digit tackles for the third consecutive game, moving his season total to 51 in six games. Playing 91 percent of his team's defensive snaps during Week 6, Vigil will draw a solid matchup with a stagnant Jaguars offense in Week 7.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2016
Vigil missed multiple games last season due to ankle and back injuries, but when he was in there he recorded 79 tackles, a sack and an interception on 757 defensive snaps. Vigil is listed as the starting strong side linebacker for the Bengals this season, but he's going to face a meaningful challenge for playing time this year. He has to fend off Vincent Rey, second-year player Jordan Evans and third-round pick Malik Jefferson. His best chance to produce will be early on, with Vontaze Burfict suspended for the first four games.
Nick Vigil enters 2016 without expectation to start in his rookie season, merely looking to contribute off the bench. Likely seeing the field as a second or third option, he shouldn’t be looked to for a lot of production during his first professional campaign.
