Summary

Joseph is not a player who puts up flashy statistics. He is a 328 road grader who anchors the middle of the Vikings defense and does an excellent job keeping blockers off the second level defenders. At a position where solid box score production is hard to come by however, Joseph provides fantasy owners with a solid option. Since becoming a starter for the Giants in 2011 he has average almost 35 solo stops, 19 assists and 3 sacks. Joseph reached a career high in tackles last season with 43. This is particularly impressive considering he missed four games. There is no chance he will breakout and join the elite tier of interior linemen but fantasy owners in leagues requiring tackles could do much worse for a second starter or top notch backup. (May 27)
