2018 Fantasy Outlook
Sendejo seems to be taking advantage of his role within a star-studded Vikings secondary that otherwise includes two 2017 first-team All-Pros in free safety Harrison Smith and cornerback Xavier Rhodes. As the Vikings' clear starting strong safety in 2017, the undrafted Rice product was on pace for 98 tackles and 8.6 pass breakups had he played all 16 games. Such production makes him one to keep an eye on in IDP circles ahead of the 2018 season, and he should come at a discount given his lack of brand-name appeal. Read Past Outlooks

Sendejo (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Sendejo suffered the groin injury in Week 5 against the Eagles and hasn't seen the field since. His placement on IR ends his 2018 campaign, where he racked up 27 tackles (21 solo) and one pass defended. Anthony Harris should continue to start at strong safety for the Vikings with Sendejo out.

Sendejo, who amassed 69 tackles, four passes defensed and two interceptions in 2016 before a knee injury cut his campaign just short, is slated to once again start at strong safety next to Harrison Smith. Sendejo underwent surgery to repair the knee issue during the offseason, but he should be back in time for training camp.
Sendejo is the leading candidate to retain his starting safety job next to Smith, but he faces competition from Michael Griffin, Antone Exum, Anthony Harris and Jayron Kearse. He's a solid tackler, but has struggled at times in coverage.
Sendejo took over as the starter last December after Robert Blanton started 13 games, but he's not guaranteed a starting role again. He will compete with Blanton, Tayor Mays, Antone Exum and Anthony Harris for a starting safety role next to Harrison Smith this summer.
Sendejo has mostly been a special teams player in his career, but he finally got playing time in the secondary last season after the injury to Harrison Smith and made a decent impression when in the starting lineup. He'll likely win a top reserve role as a result.
Will serve as a backup at safety and contribute on special teams.
Sendejo went undrafted at Rice and then played in the UFL and bounced around two NFL practice squads. With Minnesota's wide open competition at safety, he could actually win a significant role.
