  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Underwhelms in 2021

    Baker notched 92 tackles (62 solo), 5.5 sacks, four pass breakups, one interception and one forced fumble across 16 appearances in 2021.

    Baker saw his numbers decline in terms of both tackles and sacks despite appearing in the same amount of contests as he did in 2020, and maintaining an every-down role on defense. That said, he did end the 2021 campaign on a high note, with 26 tackles and 4.5 sacks in his last four appearances. The 25-year-old will attempt to bounce back under a new head couch during the 2022 season, after which the Dolphins could evaluate a potential 'out' in his contract.

  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Keeps up sack streak

    Baker notched seven tackles (six solo) and one sack during Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Titans.

    Baker remains one of the bright spots of Miami's defensive front, and a Week 18 divisional matchup against the Patriots could once again provide him significant opportunities as a run stopper. In his last three appearances, Baker has racked up 4.5 sacks.

  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Dominant in divisional win

    Baker notched seven tackles (four solo) and two sacks during Sunday's win over the Jets.

    Baker played his usual every-down role Sunday and managed to torment New York quarterback Zach Wilson, bringing him to three sacks on the season. Looking ahead to Week 16, Baker will get a chance to keep up his momentum against a Saints offense that could be without top tackles Terron Armstead (knee) and Ryan Ramczyk (knee).

  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Just four stops on TNF

    Baker had four solo tackles during Thursday's 22-10 win over the Ravens.

    Baker only has one sack on the season, and he hasn't notched double-digit tackles since Week 1. Despite being an every-down player and one of the Dolphins' top defensive contributors, Baker's lack of big games means he can't be considered a must-start option in IDP fantasy formats. That said, Week 11's matchup against the Jets could provide more opportunities for impact plays.

  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Will play Sunday

    Baker (knee) is active for Sunday's contest against the Texans.

    Baker was a limited participant during practices this week, but he will be available for the Dolphins' Week 9 matchup against the Texans. When healthy, the 2018 third-round pick has played the majority of Miami's defensive snaps this season, but it's unclear if he will be on a snap count after his one-game absence.

  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Questionable for Sunday

    Baker (knee) is questionable for Sunday against the Texans, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

    Baker was unable to play in Week 8 after suffering the injury early in Week 7. The 2018 third-round pick had been one of the Dolphins' biggest contributors on defense this season, so his return would be a big boost to their linebacker group.
