Jordan now has 2.5 sacks and 21 combined tackles this season. While his sack total is slightly off his typical pace -- he has averaged nearly 10 sacks per season over the last four years -- sacks often come in bunches for the talented defensive end. Further, Jordan is actually on pace to approach his career high in tackles (67 in 2012). Although the Saints once again have one of the worst defenses in the league, Jordan should continue to be a solid option for IDP owners.
Jordan (knee) has been ruled active for Monday night's contest against the Falcons, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.
Jordan recorded eight tackles, a pass defended, and one sack in Week 2's loss to the Giants. At the time it appeared he came out of the game healthy. However, he was a surprising addition to the Saints' final injury report on Saturday when he was labeled questionable. However, that appears to have been a precautionary measure by the team as he will suit up Monday.
Jordan was a surprise addition to the injury report this week, but the specifics of his injury remain vague. Bobby Richardson may get the start at defensive end if Jordan is ruled out.
Although Jordan has double-digit sack potential, he has not topped 51 tackles in a season since 2012, when he made 67 stops in his sophomore campaign. Yet, after a subpar performance in Week 1, Jordan was a force along the defensive line and his eight tackles were his most in a game since Week 1 of 2012. If Jordan can once again take down ball carriers at a high rate, in addition to sacking the quarterback, he could be a fantasy monster.
