Jordan posted one tackle in Sunday's 29-24 divisional-round loss to the Vikings.
Jordan finished the season with a dud, but the box score didn't do his performance justice, as the defensive end was constantly putting pressure on Vikings quarterback Case Keenum, particularly in the second half. Nevertheless, Jordan's 2017 regular season was a major success. In his seventh season, Jordan had 14 sacks -- tied for fourth-most in the NFL -- and 62 total tackles, which was the seventh-most among NFL defensive linemen. The former Cal product also had 12 passes defensed, an interception, two fumble recoveries and a touchdown. Jordan was selected for the Pro Bowl for the third time in his career, named a first-team All Pro for the first time and could even get votes for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. As a result of his versatile production, Jordan should be one of the first defensive linemen off the board in IDP leagues next season.
Jordan had three tackles (two solo), a sack and two passes defensed in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card victory over the Panthers.
Jordan's well-rounded stat line was indicative of the huge effect he had on the game, as the defensive end constantly disrupted Carolina's offense with his strong pass rush. Jordan was named a first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press for the first time in his seven-year career, and the versatile defender should be a must-start IDP option against the Vikings in next week's NFC divisional-round showdown.
Jordan had four tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.
Jordan capped his incredible season with another sack in the regular-season finale in Tampa. With 62 total tackles, 11 pass defenses and 13 sacks, the Pro Bowl defense end will look to continue to stuff the stat sheet next Sunday when the Saints host the Panthers in the first round of the playoffs.
Jordan recorded three tackles (all solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Falcons.
Jordan ended a three-game drought without a sack, and was the only defensive lineman from either team to play every defensive snap. Sunday's performance brings the 28-year-old's season sack total to 12, tied for fifth in the NFL.
Jordan had just one tackle but he deflected four passes in Sunday's win against the Jets.
Jordan stopped his rush short on a number of occasions in order to get his hands up at the line of scrimmage, which resulted in a number of batted balls. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Jordan became just the second player over the past 10 years to bat down four passes in a single game. He now has 10 sacks, 14 tackles for loss and 11 pass defenses. The only other player to reach double digits in all three categories in the past 10 years, according to ESPN Stats & Info, was J.J. Watt with a ridiculous 2012 season (20.5 sacks, 16 batted passes and 39 tackles for loss). Although the Saints' Week 16 opponent, Atlanta, held Jordan to just two solo tackles a couple weeks ago, fantasy owners should not hesitate in plugging the potential NFL Defensive Player of the Year into their IDP lineups.
