Top Arden Key News

  • Jaguars' Arden Key: Inks with Jacksonville

    The Jaguars signed Key to a one-year, $7 million contract Wednesday.

    Key managed a career-best 6.5-sack campaign with the 49ers last season, and the Jaguars will now hope he can shore up a position of weakness. To date, Key has looked most comfortable in a rotational defensive role, which keeps him off the fantasy radar in most IDP fantasy formats.

  • 49ers' Arden Key: Being evaluated for head injury

    Key is being evaluated for a head injury during Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Rams.

    Key was removed from Sunday's matchup in the second quarter, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return. If Key remains sidelined, Charles Omenihu could see his role increase.

  • 49ers' Arden Key: Returns to game

    Key (head) has returned to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Rams, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Key was being evaluated for a head injury late in the first half, but he was able to return to the field to begin the second half. He should continue to play a role behind Arik Armstead as the 49ers attempt to advance to the Super Bowl.

  • 49ers' Arden Key: Thriving in rotational role

    Key tallied a sack across his 24 snaps on defense Sunday in the 49ers' 31-13 win over the Falcons.

    Nick Bosa (15 sacks) continues to lead the San Francisco pass rush, but the emergence of Key in recent weeks has resulted in the absence of Dee Ford (back) going largely unnoticed. Despite not playing any more than 50 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps in any game this season while serving in a rotational role, Key has amassed five sacks, with all coming in the last seven weeks. After failing to meet expectations with the Raiders as a third-round pick in 2018, Key appears to have untapped some of his considerable potential in San Francisco.

  • 49ers' Arden Key: Gets chance with San Francisco

    The 49ers signed Key to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Key will likely fill a depth or rotational role along the 49ers' defensive line, while also providing the team with some upside if he can take a step forward in his development after entering the NFL with high expectations as a third-round pick in 2018. He never reached his potential during his three seasons with the Raiders, registering three sacks over 37 career appearances.

  • Arden Key: Done in Las Vegas

    The Raiders waived Key on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Key never managed to emerge as a consistent option since joining the Raiders in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and rather than take another shot in the final year of his rookie deal, the team has decided to simply part ways. Still just looking ahead to his age-25 season, Key should get another chance to continue his development in the NFL, but the odds that he ever puts it together as a real fantasy option in IDP formats are looking increasingly slim.

  • Raiders' Arden Key: Returns to active roster

    Key (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    The 24-year-old never tested positive for the virus but was considered a high-risk close contact of Clelin Ferrell. Key should continue to fill a rotational role on the defensive line for Las Vegas.

  • Raiders' Arden Key: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Raiders placed Key on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN reports.

    Key was considered a high-risk close contact after Clelin Ferrell tested positive for the virus Tuesday. Key will be eligible to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs as long as he continues to test negative this week leading up to the game.

  • Raiders' Arden Key: Good to go

    Key (foot) will be available for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    Although Key was limited at practice all week, it looks like the Raiders were just erring on the side of caution. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual role providing depth on the defensive line.

  • Raiders' Arden Key: Out again

    Key (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

  • Raiders' Arden Key: Won't play in Cleveland

    Key (foot) is inactive Week 8 against the Browns.

    Key has appeared in each game this season as a reserve defensive lineman, but did not see the practice field this week and will effectively take a seat. Chris Smith and Carl Nassib would be candidates to see additional snaps in his stead.
