Saints' Paul Kruger: Underwhelms as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kruger had 25 tackles (19 solo) and 1.5 sacks in 16 games for the Saints last year. He also had one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

Hoping to catch lightning in a bottle, the Saints signed Kruger -- only two years removed from a 11-sack season in Cleveland -- a few days before the start of the season. While Kruger served as a useful real-life starter opposite Cameron Jordan, the veteran defensive end did little to warrant the attention of fantasy owners. A free agent this offseason, Kruger could still return to New Orleans, though the team will likely look to draft a young pass rusher even if he re-signs. Regardless, with only four total sacks over his last two seasons, Kruger is unlikely to be a contributor to fantasy teams in 2017 no matter where he lands this offseason.

Saints' Paul Kruger: Cleared to play in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kruger (back) is active for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Chiefs, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

The Saints had listed Kruger as questionable for the contest while he fought a back issue during practice, but after sitting out last week's game against the Panthers, he'll be cleared to return to action. The 30-year-old, who posted double-digit sacks for the Browns in 2014, has yet to regain his pass-rushing form through four games with the Saints this season and has only registered a lone half-sack.

Saints' Paul Kruger: Deemed questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints have listed Kruger (back) as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs.

Kruger missed his first game of the season in last week's win over the Panthers. He appears to be trending toward a true game-time decision Sunday. Kasim Edbali and Darryl Tapp will presumably see an increased workload if Kruger cannot suit up.

Saints' Paul Kruger: Held out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kruger (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Kruger picked up the back injury in the Saints' Week 4 win over the Chargers, and the bye week apparently didn't provide him with enough time to recover. With Kruger out, the Saints will look to Kasim Edebali and Darryl Tapp to provide some pass rushing from the defensive end spot opposite Cameron Jordan.

Saints' Paul Kruger: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kruger is questionable to return to Sunday's game against San Diego after suffering a back injury, Larry Holder of the Times-Picayune reports.

Kruger injured his back in the middle of the second half on Sunday. If he's unable to return look for Kasim Edebali to see some extra reps.
