  • Baker posted three solo tackles and a pass defensed in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Falcons. The 30-year-old tackle has uncharacteristically failed to record a sack this season after totaling 9.5 over his last pair of Redskins campaigns. He's continued to be solid against the run, but Baker is also on pace for his lowest tackle total since his second pro campaign in 2013. Given his overall downturn in production, he's largely devoid of any fantasy value at the moment.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Baker: Active in Week 9
    By RotoWire Staff

    Baker (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 9 tilt against the Saints, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. The veteran defensive tackle unsurprisingly follows up a pair of full practices to close out the week with active status against the Saints. Baker's veteran presence will be especially valued against a versatile New Orleans offense that has leaned heavier on the run this season than in years' past.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Baker: Questionable for Week 9
    By RotoWire Staff

    Baker (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Baker finished the week with a pair of full practices, so it would seem as though he is trending to play Sunday, especially after playing through the ailment in Sunday's loss to Carolina. Clinton McDonald would likely see increased snaps at defensive tackle if Baker is unable to play against the Saints.

  • Baker (ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday, Jenna Laine of reports. The veteran defensive lineman was able to take his participation level up a notch after only practicing on a limited basis to open Week 9 prep Wednesday. Baker is currently ahead of last week's practice regimen, when he wasn't able to turn in a full session until Friday. He appears well on his way to playing against the Saints on Sunday, and his presence will be pivotal to the Buccaneers' efforts to slow down a versatile New Orleans offense.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Baker: Four tackles in Week 8 loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Baker (ankle) managed four solo tackles and one pass defensed in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Panthers. The veteran tackle played through his ankle injury to notch four stops for the second consecutive week. Baker has no less than three tackles in his last four games and has served as the run-stopping presence the Buccaneers were hoping he'd be when they inked him in the offseason. With 17 stops through six games, the 30-year-old remains on pace for his fourth straight 40-tackle season, although he's surprisingly failed to get to the quarterback after posting 9.5 sacks over the last two campaigns.
