Manti Te'o: Returns to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears activated Te'o from the practice squad COVID-19 list Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction page.

The Notre Dame product was placed on the list Dec. 7 by the Bears, but it's unclear if he tested positive for the virus or he was deemed a high-risk close contact individual. Te'o has been with the Bears' practice squad since Oct. 20, but he has yet to make an appearance this season.

Manti Te'o: Moves to COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o has been placed on Chicago's practice squad COVID-19 list, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Te'o was added to the Bears' practice squad Oct. 20, but the 29-year-old remains without an appearance this season. His last campaign starting 10-plus games came in 2017 during his debut season in New Orleans, however, he also suited up for a combined eight appearances between 2018 and 2019. For his career, the Notre Dame product has compiled 307 tackles, two interceptions and 1.5 sacks over 62 NFL games.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Undertaking bigger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o is set to start in Week 16 against the Titans, John Hendrix of Sports Illustrated reports.

Teo' is set for a bigger role with Kiko Alonso (quadriceps) ruled out. Since joining the team in Week 14, Te'o has logged a combined 12 snaps through two contests and recorded one tackle.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Returns to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

The 28-year-old hasn't seen game action since Week 8 with the Saints last season, but he'll rejoin the team for the 2019 stretch run. Te'o provides some depth at linebacker after Kiko Alonso (thigh) suffered an injury during last Thursday's win over the Falcons.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Healthy inactive for second straight week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

It will be a second straight DNP for Te'o, who's logged just 12 tackles (eight solo) and one pass defensed this season. The Saints' defensive scheme seems to be largely responsible for Te'o's absence from the gameday roster the last two contests, as New Orleans has been deploying two-linebacker alignments on a frequent basis.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Healthy scratch for Sunday's tilt with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (coach's decision) will not play in Sunday's game against the Rams, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The Saints typically use a two-linebacker set so Te'o's absence is likely the result of a personnel decision. Look for Alex Anzalone to be the third linebacker available alongside Vince Biegel in the event of emergency. More information on Te'o's healthy scratch could be available following the game.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Healthy to enter Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (knee) is not listed on the Saints' injury report Wednesday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Te'o missed three consecutive contests due to a knee issue but appears to have recovered from the injury. Barring any setbacks, Te'o is on track to suit up against the Ravens on Sunday.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Out against Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (knee) is listed as inactive for Monday night's game against the Redskins, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Te'o is set to miss his third consecutive game with a knee injury he suffered in Week 2. The Saints will likely use Alex Anzalone, Vince Biegel and Craig Robertson to fill the void against the Redskins.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Questionable for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Redskins, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports.

Te'o has missed the past two weeks with a knee injury. If he is unable to go Monday, middle linebacker duties will likely be handled by some combination Alex Anzalone, Vince Biegel and Craig Robertson.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Te'o will miss his second consecutive regular-season game while recovering from a knee injury. The veteran linebacker's workload will be split between Alex Anzalone and Vince Biegel, who stand to split snaps at the middle linebacker position.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Ruled out for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Te'o is listed as the Saints' starting middle linebacker, but he's played just 62 defensive snaps through the first two games. He's made eight tackles (four solo) in that span. Alex Anzalone and Vince Biegel should both see an uptick in snaps in Week 3.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Does not practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (knee) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Te'o seems to be battling a knee injury of undisclosed severity after managing to record four tackles in Week 2. The 27-year-old should be considered questionable to suit up against the Falcons on Sunday, and if Te'o misses any time, A.J. Klein and Alex Anzalone likely will split the Saints' linebacker snaps evenly.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Four tackles in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o made four tackles (one solo) in Sunday's win against the Browns. He played 35 of the Saints' 62 defensive snaps.

Te'o continues to split time with A.J. Klein (48 snaps) and Alex Anzalone (23 snaps), though Klein appears to have surged to the top of the linebacker committee in Week 2 after registering nine tackles. Still, barring injury, it remains difficult to predict how Klein, Te'o and Anzalone will be deployed on a weekly basis.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Splits snaps in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o had four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. He played 27 of the Saints' 66 defensive snaps.

While Demario Davis played every defensive snap, Te'o, A.J. Klein (25 snaps) and Alex Anzalone (34 snaps) each saw a roughly equal amount of playing time in the opener, with only Anzalone -- who had a forced fumble -- doing much of note in an ugly defensive performance. It's only one week so it may be too early to rush to judgment, but if Klein, Te'o and Anzalone continue to split snaps, it may be difficult for IDP owners to trust any Saints linebacker except Davis.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Listed as starting middle linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o is listed as the starting middle linebacker on the Saints' first unofficial depth chart, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Te'o spent most of last year backing up AJ Klein, but he was productive at middle linebacker when Klein was absent from the lineup due to various injuries. Still, with Klein now healthy and the Saints signing coveted free agent Demario Davis, it comes as a surprise that Te'o is listed as the starter at middle linebacker. Should this alignment hold -- Te'o at middle linebacker and Klein and Davis starting on the outside -- Te'o could see a bump in value in IDP leagues.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Continues to produce as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o made five tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card win over the Panthers.

Te'o played 57 of the Saints' 74 defensive snaps (77 percent), in addition to seven special-teams snaps. Te'o has notched 36 total tackles in the five games since starting at middle linebacker after AJ Klein (groin) was lost of the season. While not a flashy performer, Te'o should continue to be a quality IDP option in playoff fantasy leagues. The Saints will travel to Minnesota for next week's divisional-round contest against the Vikings.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Solid as starting linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o made seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 31-19 win against the Jets.

With normal starting middle linebacker A.J. Klein sidelined with a groin injury, Te'o played every defensive snap for the Saints. Klein was unable to practice at all last week, so there's a decent chance that he will miss Week 16 as well. If that's the case, expect Te'o to again garner the starting nod in Klein's absence versus a Falcons team Te'o notched 10 tackles against just a couple of weeks ago.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Productive following Klein injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o made 10 tackles (eight solo) in Thursday night's 20-17 loss to the Falcons.

Te'o's 10 total tackles were a season high, as he played 57 of the Saints' 74 defensive snaps (77 percent), in addition to five special teams snaps, after starting middle linebacker A.J. Klein left the game with a groin injury. The severity of Klein's injury is still unknown, so Te'o could again see substantial playing time in Week 15 against the Jets. It's worth noting, however, that when Klein missed the team's Week 11 tilt against Washington, Te'o could only muster five total tackles.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Expected to start at middle linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o notched nine tackles (seven solo), a sack and three tackles for loss in Sunday's preseason win over the Chargers.

According to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com, Te'o appears to be the front-runner to start at middle linebacker in the Saints' base 4-3 defense. The Saints took a chance on Te'o, who is coming off a torn Achilles, by signing the fifth-year linebacker to an incentive-laden two-year deal this offseason. While injuries have plagued the former Notre Dame star throughout his young career, when healthy, Te'o has been a consistent performer. Te'o may leave the field on passing downs, but as long as he starts and, most importantly, remains healthy, he's a good bet for solid production at a reasonable price in IDP formats.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Reaches two-year pact with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (Achilles) has agreed to a two-year deal with the Saints, ESPN.com's Mike Triplett reports.

Looking to bounce back from a torn Achilles suffered in September, the 26-year-old linebacker will join a Saints defense that seemingly has bigger issues than its linebacking corps. While there appears to be ample competition at the position, the Saints don't have any proven standout performers, which means Te'o should at least have the opportunity to compete for a starting job. He started 34 of his 38 games during a four-year run in San Diego, with injuries limiting him to 13 or fewer appearances each season, though he still averaged 5.8 tackles per game.
