Minnesota Vikings
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Wonnum moved into a starting role after Danielle Hunter's season-ending pectoral injury Week 8 last year and responded with 33 tackles and seven sacks over his final 10 games. He'll move to a reserve role behind Hunter and newcomer Za'Darius Smith as an edge rusher in the Vikings' new 3-4 defense, but Wonnum could find his role grow since both Hunter and Smith were not able to stay healthy in 2021.

Smaller role in 2022
LBMinnesota Vikings
January 26, 2023
Wonnum totaled 38 tackles, including four sacks, while playing 16 games during the 2022 regular season.
ANALYSIS
Wonnum took a step back in both playing time and production following his career-best campaign in 2021. The third-year linebacker shifted into a rotational role behind Minnesota's top pass rushers Danielle Hunter and Za'Darius Smith. Wonnum still played at least 43 percent of defensive snaps in every game outside of the 2022 season opener, though he totaled just one-half sack over the final 10 contests, including the Vikings' wild-card loss to the Giants. Wonnum will look to post a more productive campaign during the final season of his rookie contract in 2023.

2021 NFL Team Previews: Minnesota Vikings
August 3, 2021
The Vikings boast one of the more balanced offenses in the league, and if the defense is as leaky as last season, Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson and company could have plenty of chances to continue to cook.
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 2020 fourth-round draft pick will compete for a starting defensive end role this summer after a promising rookie season that saw him post three sacks and get increasing playing time later in the year.
