  • Panthers' Cory Littleton: Returns to practice Friday

    Littleton (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Friday. Littleton returned to practice for the first time this week as he continues to nurse the ankle injury he suffered in Week 11 against the Saints. His ability to participate Friday opens the door for him to potentially be available Sunday. The linebacker is considered questionable for Week 14, and if he can't go, Damien Wilson could see a slight uptick in usage on defense.

  • Raiders' Cory Littleton: Huge day vs. Denver

    Littleton had 11 tackles (seven solo), a half-sack and one pass breakup during Sunday's win over the Broncos. Littleton doesn't normally get to the opposing quarterback -- he didn't notch a single sack last season -- but his floor as a run stopper lends him notable IDP value. With 55 tackles through six contests, Littleton is in play as a weekly fantasy option. However, he played only a season-low 69 percent of defensive snaps Week 6.

  • Raiders' Cory Littleton: Rebounds Thursday night

    Littleton had seven tackles (four solo) during Thursday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers. Prior to Thursday's loss, Littleton had gone three straight games with less than five stops and under 60 percent of defensive snaps, so it was encouraging to see him back in his usual starting role. Littleton handled 65 snaps on defense (98 percent) against the Chargers, a likely indication that he'll be back to an every-down role to close out the regular season.

  • Raiders' Cory Littleton: Picks up seven tackles

    Littleton had seven tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Bills. The seven tackles marks his highest production of the season, as the 26-year-old is on pace to finish below 120 tackles for the first time since 2017. Littleton has 22 tackles (15 solo) through the first four games of the season, and his IDP value is limited given his current production.

  • Raiders' Cory Littleton: Quiet in Week 2

    Littleton recorded three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 34-24 win over the Saints. Littleton's lack of statistical production was not a result of not being on the field, as both he and fellow linebacker Nicholas Morrow both played 100-percent of the Raiders defensive snaps. The Saints regularly attacked the Raiders young defensive backs in the run game with outside schemes, potentially taking tackles away from Littleton. If he continues playing every snap for Las Vegas, the numbers should come soon enough.
