Dolphins' Akeem Spence: Ejected for unnecessary roughness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spence was ejected from Sunday's game against the Raiders for unnecessary roughness, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Spence's penalty killed a Miami drive nearing the endzone, and the 26-year-old was ejected from the game. With William Hayes (knee) questionable to return, the Dolphins could be without two key defensive tackles for the remainder of Week 3's matchup.

Dolphins' Akeem Spence: Traded to Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spence was traded from the Lions to the Dolphins on Thursday in exchange for an undisclosed 2019 draft pick, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Spence recorded 39 tackles (19 solo) and three sacks while logging a career-high 661 snaps on defense. However, new head coach Matt Patricia likes to employ multiple defensive fronts and it appears Spence didn't fit the mold of a player Patricia wants along the defensive line. As a result, Spence will join a Miami front that lost the services of Ndamukong Suh this offseason, putting Spence in a good situation for playing time. The Lions restructured Spence's three-year deal earlier in the day, which has two years remaining on it as he heads to Miami.

Lions' Akeem Spence: Tallies three sacks in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spence recorded 39 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble over 16 games in 2017.

Spence showed he can be a valuable asset as a situational pass rusher for the Lions, but he also frustratingly committed six penalties this term. While the Illinois product has never been of much utility in IDP formats, Spence could be headed for the largest workload of his career in 2018 if Haloti Ngata (biceps) either retires or leaves in free agency.

Lions' Akeem Spence: Sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spence recorded two solo tackles and one sack in Saturday's win over the Bears.

Spence has seen increased reps on defense ever since Haloti Ngata (biceps) was placed on injured reserve. Spence now has 2.5 sacks on the season, which puts him 0.5 short of tying a personal season-high. He'll look to add to that total Sunday against the Bengals.
