Bynum leads the Vikings' defense with 76 tackles on the year and is only five short of the 81 he had over 17 games in the 2022 season. He could surpass that total as early as Week 9 against the Falcons.

Bynum had nine total tackles and two interceptions in Monday's win over the 49ers.
Bynum had an outstanding game in coverage as he allowed just one of two passes targeted at him to be completed (per Pro Football Focus) for 18 yards with the two picks. He's also been a strong tackler by averaging 9.8 tackles per game.
Bynum notched nine solo tackles during Sunday's 19-13 win over the Bears.
Bynum now boasts 41 total tackles through six appearances, an average of 6.8 per contest. He's also tallied two passes defensed and one forced fumble. By virtue of his consistent tackle numbers, Bynum will remain an interesting fantasy option in IDP formats heading into a Week 7 home matchup against the 49ers.
Bynum logged 12 tackles (nine solo) and a forced fumble during Minnesota's 21-13 win against the Panthers on Sunday.
Bynum has produced efficient numbers through the team's first four games and has already logged double-digit tackles three times. The 25-year-old is currently having the best start to a year of his career and is on pace to setting a new personal best for total tackles.
Bynum had 15 tackles (six solo), including one tackle for loss, in Thursday's 34-28 loss to Philadelphia.
Bynum was the leading tackler for a Minnesota defense that got plenty of opportunities to rack up tackles against a run-heavy Philadelphia offense that rushed for 259 yards and three touchdowns. Thursday's 15 tackles marked a new career high for the 2021 fourth-round draft pick, who has 25 tackles (11 solo) through two games in 2023.
Bynum started at safety opposite Harrison Smith and had ten total tackles in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Bynum picked up where he left off last season when he had a breakout season as the starting free safety. It was thought 2022 first-round pick Lewis Cine may challege for the starting free safety role, but he struggled in the preseason and was limited to special teams in the opener.
Bynum registered a career-high 81 tackles (49 solo) and added six pass breakups, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries while playing in all 17 regular-season games in 2022.
Bynum doubled his production in pass breakups while nearly tripling his number of tackles from his rookie campaign with Minnesota. The 2021 fourth-round pick saw the majority of his playing time on special teams in the previous season, but he opened the 2022 campaign in an every-down role alongside veteran strong safety Harrison Smith. The 24-year-old Bynum maintained this role throughout the entirety of the campaign after rookie first-round pick Lewis Cine went down with a season-ending fractured leg Week 4. If Cine is back to full health in 2023, Bynum could end up ceding more work in the Minnesota secondary.
Bynum recorded nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Packers.
Bynum was the only player on Minnesota's defense who never left the field in last weekend's matchup versus Green Bay, and he also set a new season high with nine tackles in the contest. He's more than likely to continue serving as an every-down safety in Week 18 against Chicago.
