Saints' Stephone Anthony: Likely to start Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony is lining up as a starting linebacker in walkthroughs ahead of Sunday's tilt against the 49ers, John Hendrix reports.

Anthony appears set to slot into New Orleans' starting defense Week 14 with A.J. Klein (knee) and Kiko Alonso (thigh) both inactive. The 2015 first-round pick normally contributes on special teams, but he'll now have a shot to show well on defense.

Saints' Stephone Anthony: Back in Big Easy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony signed a contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Anthony was let go by the Saints on Oct. 16, and he now rejoins the team as expected. He figures to reprise his usual role on special teams.

Stephone Anthony: Let go by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony was released by the Saints on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Anthony latched on with the Saints in late September and exclusively played special teams in his three games with the team. The 2015 first-round pick is expected to rejoin the team within the next few weeks.

Saints' Stephone Anthony: Back with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony signed a contract with New Orleans on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Two years after leaving New Orleans, Anthony will be returning to play for the team that drafted him 31st overall in 2015. Expected to contribute mostly on special teams, Anthony isn't likely to offer much value in IDP formats, but it's still nice to see him reuniting with special teams coordinator, Darren Rizzi. Barring injury, the 28-year-old linebacker should remain on the waiver wire.

Jets' Stephone Anthony: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony signed with the Jets on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Anthony, a former first-rounder, spent his first three seasons with the Saints before playing his last two with the Dolphins. He started training camp with the Falcons before ultimately being released on Monday. He will now look to make an impression with the Jets.

Stephone Anthony: Parts ways with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony was released by the Falcons on Monday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Anthony suited up for Atlanta's first three preseason games and racked up five tackles, but he was ultimately unable to stick on the roster. The 2015 first-round pick will look to latch on in a depth capacity elsewhere in the league.

Falcons' Stephone Anthony: Joins Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony signed a contract with the Falcons on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Anthony projects to contribute on special teams and provide Atlanta with linebacker depth. The 2015 first-round pick played 16 games with the Dolphins last season, recording eight tackles. He also played 353 snaps on special teams.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Demoted to second team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony was replaced at starting outside linebacker by rookie Jerome Baker at Sunday's practice, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Anthony was essentially a non-factor in limited snaps during the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Buccaneers, while the team has elected to give their third-round rookie (Baker) a chance at securing a starting job at outside linebacker. Anthony exhibits a larger frame than Baker, but the latter has shown playmaking ability and speed in coverage situations.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Team option declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins declined Anthony's fifth-year option for the 2019 season Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Anthony, who the Dolphins acquired last September in a trade with the Saints, played just eight games in his first season in Miami while struggling to stay healthy. With Anthony due $9.2 million in 2019 if his fifth-year option was picked up, the Dolphins understandably declined it. That will force Anthony to play for his next contract during the upcoming season, so he'll likely do everything he can to stay healthy and improve across the board as a defender.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Anthony was able to play in Week 11's game against the Bucs, but he was limited to only 21 total snaps. He's in line to play Sunday against the Patriots, yet he isn't slated for many snaps behind Kiko Alonso.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (knee) wasn't able to practice Wednesday, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins web site reports.

Anthony sustained the injury during the game Sunday versus Tampa Bay. That game was the first one he had played in since Week 4. If he can't play Sunday the Dolphins will be awfully thin at LB with only Chase Allen and the recently signed Neville Hewitt as backups for each position.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Hurts left knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony injured his left knee against the Buccaneers on Sunday and is questionable to return, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.

Anthony is appearing in his first game since Week 4 against the Saints, but leaving the game with an injury puts the Dolphins in a tight spot. Chase Allen (concussion) has also left the game, leaving just three healthy Dolphins' linebackers: Kiko Alonso, Mike Hull and Lawrence Timmons. If Anthony doesn't return Sunday, expect more updates on his injury Wednesday.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Off Week 3 injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (ankle) wasn't listed on the Dolphins' injury report Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Anthony reportedly is ready to play Sunday against the Jets, according toChris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The 2015 first-round pick will have an immediate opportunity to make a first impression with the Dolphins, but he remains a unproven IDP option until he illustrates some consistency and can stay on the field.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Good to go for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (ankle) will be ready to play Sunday against the Jets, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

This will be Anthony's first game of the season, and more importantly, his first start with his new squad. Even with little time to learn the playbook in Miami, Anthony will still be in store for ample snaps off the bat with Lawrence Timmons suspended indefinitely and the team having suffered multiple losses to their linebacking corps due to injury. Anthony saw his production take a significant hit in his second season with New Orleans, but the Dolphins are hopeful that the change of scenery will help him unlock the high-end IDP potential he demonstrated as a rookie.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Dealt to Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints traded Anthony (ankle) to the Dolphins for an undisclosed 2018 draft pick Tuesday.

The Dolphins suspended starting strongside linebacker Lawrence Timmons indefinitely after he went incognito over the weekend, creating a need at the second level of the defense. Anthony, who has missed the first two games of the season with an ankle injury, will likely fill the void when healthy. Having said that, it remains to be see which Anthony will show up. After accumulating 112 tackles as a rookie in 2015, he didn't have the same impact last season, notching 16 stops in 10 games while tending to the occasional injury.

Saints' Stephone Anthony: Inactive Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (ankle) is inactive for the Saints' Week 2 game against New England, Scott DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

Anthony was limited in practice this past week and considered questionable heading into Sunday. His inactive status will force either A.J. Klein or Hau'oli Kikaha into the starting lineup.

September 16, 2017 01:04 AM
Saints' Stephone Anthony: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate reports.

Anthony practiced on a limited basis this week after sitting out the Saints' Week 1 loss to the Vikings. It remains unclear how likely the 25-year-old is to play, especially considering that he missed the majority of training camp.

Saints' Stephone Anthony: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Anthony also was limited throughout practice last week and sat out the Saints' season opening loss to the Vikings on Monday. The 2015 first-round pick has been dealing with the injury since the latter half of the preseason, and his status for Sunday's game against the Patriots remains up in the air.

September 11, 2017 06:40 PM
Saints' Stephone Anthony: Officially inactive for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (ankle) is inactive for Monday night's game against the Vikings.

Anthony was limited in practice throughout the week and was initially listed as questionable. The former first-round pick will need to wait at least until Week 2 to make his 2017 debut, and rookie Alex Anzalone could see significant reps in his absence against Minnesota.

September 11, 2017 05:16 PM
Saints' Stephone Anthony: Unlikely to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony (ankle) isn't expected to play Monday night against the Vikings, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Anthony was initially tabbed as questionable to play after being a limited practice participant all week due to a lingering ankle injury. If he's ultimately ruled out Monday, rookie Alex Anzalone could be in store for a hefty workload in his professional debut.
