Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Free from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hamstring) is not listed on the Falcons' final injury report heading into Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Clayborn missed Thursday's practice, but has subsequently practiced in limited fashion to close out the week. It looks like the exercising caution with their sack specialist. Look for him to resume his usual workload Sunday barring any setbacks.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn was absent from Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Clayborn presumably suffered the injury in last week's victory over the Saints. He recorded his team-high ninth sack in the contest. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, as the team could have just been opting to exercise caution by keeping him sidelined Thursday. Thus, his status should continue to be monitored throughout the week.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Logs sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn notched his ninth sack of the season in Thursday's win over the Saints.

The sack was his lone tackle of the game, and was his first sack since the six-sack explosion against the Cowboys in Week 10. The 29-year-old has only 19 tackles (17 solo) in 13 games this season, and has provided little IDP-value outside of the incredible performance against Dallas.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Just one tackle Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn was held to just one solo tackle against the Seahawks on Monday, though he did score a touchdown on a fumble recovery.

Clayborn posted a monstrous six sacks against the Cowboys in Week 10, but of course that type of performance isn't explicable. His Week 11 matchup was highlighted by the fumble TD, but the tackle total isn't much of a change from most of his outings, as his only game with more than two tackles was his six-sack game.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Sets franchise record with six sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn set a Falcons franchise record with six sacks in Sunday's 27-7 win over the Cowboys. He was credited with six tackles, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery during the contest.

The Dallas offensive line sorely missed the presence of four-time Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith (groin) on Sunday, as Clayborn, who had entered the game with just two sacks in eight games, made life miserable all day for Smith's replacements, Chaz Green and Byron Bell. Clayborn became the first player since Osi Umenyiora in 2007 to record at least six sacks in a game, and just the fourth since 1982, when the NFL first recorded sacks as an official statistic. While Clayborn's eye-popping performance will surely make him a popular pickup in IDP formats, it may be more optimal for fantasy players to instead turn their attention to the Eagles' primary edge rushers, Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry, who could similarly thrive against the Cowboys in Week 11 if Smith misses another game.
