Robertson recorded at least 11 tackles for the fourth time in five games to start the season. Although he's yet to record a sack or force a fumble, he's proving to be an outstanding source of tackles, and he currently ranks eighth in the NFL in that category. His single-category excellence makes him a valuable asset in IDP leagues.
Robertson had 11 tackles (5 solo) in Monday night's loss to the Falcons.
One of the few bright spots on an otherwise abysmal Saints defense, Robertson actually leads the NFL with 35 tackles. It is still unknown when presumed starting outside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe will make his season debut, but there is a pretty good chance that, given his excellent performance through three games, Robertson continues to start even once Ellerbe returns. As such, Robertson is worth an add in nearly all IDP leagues.
After an 11-tackle performance in his
Robertson made 11 tackles (8 solo) in Sunday's season opening loss to the Raiders.
Starting in place of the injured Dannell Ellerbe, Robertson was one of the few bright spots on the Saints' defense. His 11 tackles, which included two tackles for loss, led the team, and while many will focus on the questionable pass interference call against him late in the game, Robertson should continue to be a viable IDP option as long as he starts.
Robertson averaged 84 tackles the last four years, playing both inside and outside linebacker for the Browns. While he will likely start the year in a reserve role, Robertson should provide critical depth at a number of positions, including behind Ellerbe, who has only appeared in seven total games the last two season as a result of various injuries. Should Ellerbe or any of the other starting linebackers miss time during the year, Robertson would be the likely beneficiary in IDP leagues.
