Renard Fields - 45
The wild card in the post this year, Renard Fields will once again come off the bench to bolster the Vikings inside game. He has had to fight for every minute of playing time the last five years on teams that were both deep and talented inside, instilling in him a competitiveness that helped him to learn how to do the little things -- rebounding, blocking shots and running the floor while his offensive efficiency allows him to take advantage of his scoring opportunities.
