  • Saints' A.J. Klein: Seven tackles in Week 8
    By RotoWire Staff

    Klein made seven tackles (three solo) in Sunday night's win against the Vikings. Klein played 56 of the Saints' 73 offensive snaps, as he continues to be a solid source of tackles as a starting outside linebacker in the Saints' base 4-3 defense.

  • Klein led the Saints with seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's win against the Ravens. Klein played 50 of the Saints' 68 offensive snaps, as the outside linebacker has continued to see the majority of the playing time at outside linebacker after splitting snaps in Week 1. While Klein does not offer much outside of tackles -- he does not have a sack or interception this year -- he remains a decent source of low-end tackle production for owners in deeper IDP leagues.

  • Saints' A.J. Klein: Splits snaps in opener
    By RotoWire Staff

    Klein had two tackles (one solo) in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. He played 25 of the Saints' 66 defensive snaps. While Demario Davis played every defensive snap, Klein, Manti Te'o (27 snaps) and Alex Anzalone (34 snaps) each saw a roughly equal amount of playing time in the opener, with only Anzalone -- who had a forced fumble -- doing much of note in an ugly defensive performance. It's only one week so it may be too early to rush to judgment, but if Klein, Te'o and Anzalone continue to split snaps, it may be difficult for IDP owners to trust any Saints linebacker except Davis.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Klein (groin) is optimistic that he will be a full go in time for the start of the Saints' offseason program in the spring, reports the Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune. In his first season in New Orleans, Klein appeared in 12 games -- all starts -- before suffering a season-ending groin injury in Week 14. The Saints placed Klein on injured reserve in Week 16 and he finished the season with 54 tackles (37 solo), two sacks, four pass breakups and a forced fumble. While Manti Te'o filled in admirably in his absence, Klein is expected to return as a full-time starter next season and should be a useful fantasy option in IDP leagues.

  • Klein made eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Rams. Klein returned from a one-game absence due to an ankle injury to play every defensive snap for the Saints in Los Angeles. With 49 tackles on the season, the former Panther has been solid, albeit not spectacular, in his first New Orleans campaign. Still, his high snap total and role in the middle of the Saints defense makes him worthy of a roster spot in most IDP leagues.
