Vikings’ Updated Depth Chart

A quick look at who tops the team's depth chart through Week 10.

The Minnesota Vikings are right in the thick of the NFC playoff picture. With seven games remaining on the 2018 regular season schedule, each game down the stretch carries an extra little bit of importance.

In terms of the roster, the team was forced to make some early-season adjustments. After losing a starting offensive lineman before the season started, booting a rookie kicker out-of-town after Week 2 and watching a rookie cornerback suffer a season-injury in Week 6, things have started to settle into place.

Brian O’Neill has taken over at guard, Chad Beebe was elevated to the active roster and Ameer Abdullah was recently acquired from the Detroit Lions. Now that the holes on the roster have been filled, the team is assembled for a playoff run. Here’s an updated look at the Vikings’ depth chart:

  1. Thanks for this, Sean, although I tend to think that Anthony Harris and Stephen Weatherly are the #1 back-ups at both safety and both defensive end positions, respectively.

    If Remmers and Compton are both out this Sunday, any idea who the two starting guards will be, and at which positions?

    1. Yeah, I agree with you about Harris & Weatherly.

      Good question, I would guess Brett Jones at LG and Danny Isidora at RG. What do you think? Luckily for the Vikings I believe both will play.

      1. That was my thinking exactly, although I’d be a little worried about playing Isidora at RG when he’s only (?) played LG so far this season.
