    Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Records 6.5 sacks in 2015

    Ninkovich was on the field for 81.4 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps this past season, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. As an IDP, Ninkovich's value saw a bit of a dip in 2015, as he saw his tackle total drop to 52 and his sack tally fall to 6.5. Still, the 31-year-old was a key cog on the team's defensive line along with Chandler Jones and Jabaal Sheard, a role he'll capably reprise in 2016, the final year of his current deal with the Patriots.

    Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Suits up in Week 17

    Ninkovich (shin) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. It remains to be seen it Ninkovich will be able to handle a full workload Sunday, but with both Dont'a Hightower and Chandler Jones ruled out this week, if Ninkovich is physically able, he could be a key cog in the team's Week 17 defense.

    Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Iffy for Week 17

    Ninkovich (shin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Ninkovich missed practice Friday, so he's no lock to suit up Sunday, though if he does, he'd be a key cog in the Patriots' defense, with both Dont'a Hightower and Chandler Jones ruled out this week. Ninkovich heads into the weekend in with 47 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 15 games to date.

    Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Notches six tackles and 1.5 sacks Monday

    Ninkovich was on the field for 52 of the Patriots' 71 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Bills, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, he recorded a season-high six tackles and 1.5 sacks. Ninkovich remains a key cog in the Patriots' defensive end rotation along with Chandler Jones and Jabaal Sheard, though his overall numbers (29 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 10 games to date) limits his fantasy utility to deeper formats.

    Patriots standouts don't stand out

    Patriots defensive linemen Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich, who are normally among their top performers defensively, didn't do much statistically Week 3 against Oakland. Jones had two tackles, including one solo, and Ninkovich had six tackles, including two solo. Ninkovich's six tackles were actually a season high, but he still has only one sack this season.

    Rob Ninkovich to benefit from improved secondary

    Patriots defensive end Rob Ninkovich, who had eight sacks last season, could have a bigger year thanks to the additions of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. If the secondary covers receivers longer, Ninkovich can get to the quarterback more often. "I'm happy to have some of the new guys coming in, and we've got the best corner in the league coming in, so that's always a good thing for a defensive end like myself," Ninkovich told the Boston Herald. "Just give me a little more time, I'll be happy to use that."
