Summary

Vigil is somewhat of a rarity in that he is a 4-3 strong side linebacker that stays on the field in sub packages and holds some fantasy value. Intelligence and an ability to stuff the run are Vigil's biggest assets but he is above average in coverage as well. He was on pace for 131 solo tackles before suffering a sprained knee in week six. He got back on the field week 13 and finished the season despite the sore knee. Even playing at less than 100% for several games Vigil finished at 62-22-0 with three passes defended and a fumble recovery. The linebacker position is a weakness for the Bengals so there is little threat of Vigil's role changing in 2019. For those in balanced or tackle heavy leagues he should be at least a solid LB3 with LB2 upside. (May 9)
