Peppers notched 91 tackles (57 solo), 2.5 sacks, 11 defended passes and one interception across 15 games with the Giants in 2020. Peppers also had one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He set new career-best marks in terms of both stops and passes defensed. The 25-year-old is slated to play out the final year of his rookie deal under a $6.8 million contract in 2021, during which time he'll handle his usual starting role at strong safety. Peppers' tackle numbers provide him with some consistency in IDP formats, but his lack of sacks caps his fantasy upside.
Peppers (ankle) does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Peppers was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but he'll suit up for the Giants' season finale with Julian Love providing depth at strong safety.
Peppers (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Peppers has been a key cog in New York's defense with 22 tackles over the past three weeks.

Peppers recorded 13 tackles (eight solo) and a forced fumble across 79 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Peppers had his highest single-game tackle total of the year on Sunday, bringing his season total to 74 tackles (49 solo). He'll look to continue to rack up the tackles Sunday against the Browns.
Peppers made five tackles (three solo), a sack and two pass breakups in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Seahawks. Peppers boasts a diversified stat line. Through 11 games, the 2017 first-round pick has recorded 61 tackles (42 solo), 2.5 sacks, 10 pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery. Peppers handles an every-down role, and he occasionally returns punts, too. He's within reach of career highs across all notable categories.
