Saints' A.J. Klein: Modest production as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klein finished the 2018 regular season with 69 tackles (42 solo), two sacks, two fumble recoveries and an interception in 16 games.

Klein started at middle linebacker most of the season in New Orleans but his production was fairly pedestrian, as he averaged just over four tackles per game. Klein offers little as a pass rusher or turnover specialist, so while the six-year pro should be the frontrunner to start at linebacker again in 2019, he's not a sought-after fantasy commodity.

Saints' A.J. Klein: Tallies second consecutive sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klein had four tackles (four solo) and a sack in Sunday's 28-14 win over Tampa Bay.

Klein was solid for the Saints' defense all game and recorded his second consecutive sack in as many games. The Iowa State product now has 58 tackles (35 solo) in 13 games, which makes him an unreliable IDP option.

Saints' A.J. Klein: Records first sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klein had five tackles (two solo) and a sack in Thursday's 13-10 loss to the Cowboys.

The five tackles are Klein's highest output since Week 8 against the Vikings, as he had just 11 total tackles over the previous four games. The 27-year-old has 54 tackles (31 solo) through 12 games, and his modest production of late makes him an unreliable IDP option.

Saints' A.J. Klein: Snags first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klein recorded four tackles (two solo) and an interception in Thursday's win over the Falcons.

Klein's interception was the second of his career and his first with the Saints. He's having a career year for New Orleans, sitting six tackles shy of his career high with five games to go. Looking ahead, he and the Saints will take on the Cowboys in Week 13.

Saints' A.J. Klein: Seven tackles in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klein made seven tackles (three solo) in Sunday night's win against the Vikings.

Klein played 56 of the Saints' 73 offensive snaps, as he continues to be a solid source of tackles as a starting outside linebacker in the Saints' base 4-3 defense.
