Summary

Robert Blanton emerged from nowhere to claim the Vikings starting strong safety job in 2014. He is neither a flashy player nor a major big play threat, but Blanton proved to be a very dependable contributor for both the Vikings and fantasy owners. In fourteen games he totaled 71-34-0 with a couple of takeaways, making him a quality option as a third starter in many leagues. His upside is limited and we should not expect much more than what he delivered last year, but there is no reason to expect any less of a contribution from Blanton in 2015 either. (May 26)
