Avril has been successful in getting to the opposing quarterback in each of the last two weeks, and he now has four sacks on the season. In addition, he's forced a fumble in each of the last two contests, further increasing his fantasy value. The only time he's recorded more than nine sacks in the season was when he had 11 of them back in 2011 when he was a member of the Lions. He's currently on pace to set a new career high, and when throwing in the forced fumbles, he's shaping up to be a great option in IDP leagues.
Cliff Avril (not injury related) is active Sunday against the Ravens.
Avril missed the first two days of practice this week, but that was likely maintenance-related, as he logged a full day of work Friday. The pass rushing specialist did not record a tackle after playing just 37 snaps Week 13, but had collected four total sacks in the three games prior to that outing. The inconsistency makes him tough to rely on as an IDP week-to-week.
