Bengals' Josh Bynes: Totals nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes had nine tackles (four solo) and one fumble recovery during Monday's 27-17 win over the Steelers.

The nine tackles set a season high for the 31-year-old, and the fumble recovery is also his first involvement in a turnover this year. Bynes has 86 tackles (44 solo), one sack and two passes defensed through 14 games this season.

Bengals' Josh Bynes: Adds seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes posted seven tackles -- one for a loss -- in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Browns.

Bynes doesn't handle a full workload on the Bengals defense. In fact, he's only played more than 73 percent of the defensive snaps once this season. However, he's recorded at least seven tackles in five of seven outings. The veteran carries a solid floor for IDP purposes, but he hasn't proved that he has a week-winning performance in his arsenal.

Bengals' Josh Bynes: Totals eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes had eight tackles (two solo) during Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Ravens.

The 31-year-old tied his season high with eight tackles, the third time he's done so, and led the defense in the process. Bynes has 35 tackles (14 solo) and one sack through five games.

Bengals' Josh Bynes: Another eight-tackle outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes recorded eight tackles (three solo) in Thursday's 35-30 loss to the Browns.

Bynes racked up eight tackles for a second consecutive game to open his season. The linebacker's solid effort wasn't enough to slow down Cleveland's running game, however, as Nick Chubb rumbled for two touchdowns on the ground while Kareem Hunt scored once as a runner and once as a receiver. With teams likely to keep attacking Cincinnati on the ground, Bynes should continue to post high tackle totals moving forward.

Bengals' Josh Bynes: Eight tackles in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes had eight tackles in Sunday's loss to the Chargers and also was responsible for many of the defensive calls in early downs, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Bynes and Germaine Pratt logged most of the linebacker snaps and had more of the tackles against the run on Sunday, as the Bengals typically rolled with a 4-2-5 formation rather than a traditional 4-3. Bynes frequently came out on passing downs, however.

Bengals' Josh Bynes: Finds new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes inked a one-year contract with the Bengals on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 30-year-old spent the past season with the Ravens, producing 46 tackles (23 solo), one sack, four defended passes and two interceptions across 12 regular-season games. Although Bynes logged a rotational role with the Ravens, he's expected to compete with Hardy Nickerson for the starting middle linebacker spot in 2020 for the Bengals.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Musters up 46 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes recorded 46 tackles (23 solo), one sack, four defended passes and two interceptions across 12 regular-season games with the Ravens in 2019.

Bynes also appeared in Baltimore's only playoff contest, during which he made six stops (two solo). The 30-year-old signed with the Ravens in early October, and he averaged 3.8 stops per game through the remainder of the regular season while playing a rotational role. Bynes is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Snags second INT of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes collected two tackles (one solo) as well as an interception in Sunday's 41-7 win over the Texans.

Bynes' second interception of the season came in the latter stages of the third quarter, picking off a pass over the middle intended for Texans' tailback Carlos Hyde. The pick was a boost to Bynes' fantasy box score, but it did little to decide the outcome of Sunday's lopsided win.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Paces squad in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes tallied nine tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 49-13 win over the Bengals.

Bynes logged 46 of a possible 75 defensive snaps (61 percent), out-snapping both Patrick Onwuasor and Chris Board. It appears the 30-year-old has taken the starting inside linebacker role from Board, as Bynes has averaged 5.4 stops per game.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Re-signs with Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes signed with the Ravens on Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Bynes spent three seasons with the Ravens earlier in his career, but he has spent the last five years between the Lions and the Cardinals. The Ravens haven't found the right mix at linebacker yet, so they're hoping Bynes' veteran presence could be the missing piece.

Josh Bynes: Cut by Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals released Bynes (thumb) on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Prior to injuring his thumb Week 12, Bynes was heavily utilized during Steve Wilks' sole season as the coach in Arizona, playing every defensive snap from Week 3 through the fateful season-ending issue. Overall, he racked up 75 tackles and two sacks in 11 games, but the output wasn't enough to keep him around as the Cardinals switch back to a 3-4 alignment under new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (thumb) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bynes suffered a thumb injury during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers and will spend the remainder of the 2018 season on injured reserve. The 29-year-old was one of the Cardinals' most consistent defensive pieces, so his absence is likely to substantially hurt the team's defense. Gerald Hodges will serve as Arizona's starting middle linebacker going forward.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers due to a thumb injury, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bynes exited the Week 12 tilt against the Chargers during the second quarter. With Deone Bucannon (chest) inactive, the linebacker position could prove an area of weakness for the Cardinals if Bynes is unable to retake the field Sunday.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Records sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes logged three tackles (two solo), one sack and one pass defended during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

Bynes posted his second sack of the season during a Week 10 loss to the Chiefs and played a key role in holding Kansas City's offense to its lowest point total of the season. The starting linebacker could be in line for another strong defensive showing against the Raiders in Week 11.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Cleared for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (wrist) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Minnesota, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

After practicing on a limited basis in the first two sessions of the week, Bynes was a full participant Friday. With his health clear, he'll seek out double-digit tackles for the fourth time in six outings to start the season.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Limited practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (wrist) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

One of the residual effects of the Cardinals' dismal offense is plenty of action for their top defensive players. On the season, Cards hold down spots three through seven among NFL defenders in terms of most snaps on defense. Bynes is one of them and has parlayed the usage into 43 tackles and one sack. Until the offense gets going, he's a useful IDP, primarily due to the sheer volume of snaps.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Records sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes posted 11 tackles (nine solo), including a sack, and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Bynes has been a quality middle linebacker for Arizona, posting double-digit tackles in three of the team's five games. He's never recorded more than a single sack in a season, but he'll have a chance to do just that if he can get one more in the remaining 11 weeks. He'll look to keep up the strong play as the Cardinals aim to string together victories in Week 6 against the Vikings.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Posts 10 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) across 74 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Bynes recorded his second double-digit tackle performance this season, bringing his season total to 27 -- which ties him for eighth-highest in the league. He hasn't showed any signs of slowing down, as he managed to play in 100 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. He'll look to replicate this performance Sunday against a weak Seahawks offensive line.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Logs 11 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes logged 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 24-6 loss to the Redskins.

Bynes exploded onto the scene Sunday, recording nearly a third of his tackle total from last season. He'll look to continue the high level of play Sunday against the Rams.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Jumps on loose ball Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (undisclosed) made three solo tackles and recovered one fumble during Sunday's 27-3 preseason win over the Cowboys.

Bynes shook off a mystery injury and looked comfortable in his new role as middle linebacker. He likely won't play in Thursday's exhibition finale against the Broncos, but starter snaps during the regular season should propel Bynes into IDP relevance.
