Giants' Olivier Vernon: Posts 37 tackles in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon recorded 37 tackles (23 solo), 6.5 sacks, one pass defensed, one interception and two forced fumbles in 12 games during his 2017 campaign.

Vernon, who missed four consecutive games during the first half of the season due to an ankle injury, amassed less than 46 tackles in a season for the first time since his rookie year with the Dolphins in 2012. Vernon remains under contract with the Giants through 2020, so he figures to once again start at defensive end in 2018 across from Jason Pierre-Paul.

Giants' Olivier Vernon: Picks up another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon recorded three tackles, one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Although Vernon's tackle production remained modest, the pass-rush specialist now has 3.5 sacks over his last five games. Furthermore, he's now forced a fumble in back-to-back weeks after failing to do so once previously this season. He figures to have favorable odds of carrying this recent hot streak into the season finale Sunday against the Redskins, when Vernon has a juicy matchup with an injury-depleted offensive line that just lost it's starting left tackle, Trent Williams (knee), to injured reserve.

Giants' Olivier Vernon: Notches 1.5 sacks Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon had five tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks against the Redskins on Thursday.

Vernon was nursing a shoulder injury ahead of Thursday's game, but he played 62 of 71 possible snaps. Unless he suffers a setback, he should be all systems go for a Week 13 matchup with the Raiders.

Giants' Olivier Vernon: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon (shoulder) will suit up for the Giants' Thanksgiving contest versus the Redskins.

Vernon hurt his shoulder in Sunday's victory over the Chiefs and subsequently practiced in limited fashion throughout the short week. However, he is feeling well enough to play Thursday, and figures to take on his usual role as the starting defensive end opposite Jason Pierre-Paul.
