Chargers' Kyler Fackrell: Finds home with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell signed a contract with the Chargers on Wednesday.

Fackrell bounced back with four sacks with the Giants in 2020, but his production was still a far cry from the 10.5-sack campaign he turned in with Green Bay back in 2018. Now with the Chargers, he'll help bolster a pass rush that's lost longtime standout Melvin Ingram to free agency.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Manages four sacks in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell had 34 tackles (23 solo), four sacks, two defended passes and one interception (which he returned for a touchdown) across 12 games with the Giants in 2020.

Fackrell started nine of 12 appearances in his inaugural season with the Giants, but his defensive role didn't translate into consistent enough fantasy numbers to warrant much IDP consideration. The 29-year-old is set to hit free agency this offseason, and he may have to settle for a depth role at his next landing spot.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (lower leg) was activated off injured reserve and will be available for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Zack Rosenblatt of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Fackrell is slated to make his first appearance since Week 12, reclaiming his starting gig at outside linebacker across from Jabaal Sheard with Carter Coughlin providing depth.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Trending toward Week 17 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (lower leg) is expected to return from IR and suit up against the Cowboys on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Fackrell hasn't suited up since Week 12 due to a lower leg injury, but it looks like he should be back in the starting lineup for Sunday's key divisional battle. Prior to being injured, Fackrell had put together seven straight starts at outside linebacker.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Won't be activated for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (lower leg) is not expected to be activated for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Fackrell has been residing on injured reserve since Dec. 1, but a return to practice Wednesday provided hope for a potential Week 16 appearance. The Packers' 2016 third-round draft choice started each of his seven game outings between Weeks 5 and 12, but Carter Coughlin now stands to garner a third consecutive start at outside linebacker with Fackrell unavailable.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Returning to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants designated Fackrell (lower leg) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Fackrell has missed his requisite three games while on IR, so he's eligible to return as early as Sunday's matchup in Baltimore. New York could also opt to take an extended look at Fackrell in practice, while targeting Week 17 versus the Cowboys as a return date. From Weeks 5 to 10, Fackrell handled a starting role in the Giants' linebacker corps.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants placed Fackrell (lower leg) on injured reserve Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Fackrell suffered a lower-leg injury during this past Sunday's win over Cincinnati and will require at least three weeks of recovery. He's eligible to return in Week 16 against the Ravens. In his first season in New York, Fackrell started eight of 11 games and produced 31 tackles and three sacks. Jabaal Sheard and Cam Brown are candidates to start in Fackrell's place, although Oshane Ximines (shoulder) has been designated to return from IR and could be an option as well.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Status remains in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (lower leg) will have his status updated Wednesday or Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Coach Joe Judge couldn't offer much on the 28-year-old's lower leg injury, but his participation when the Giants return to practice Wednesday should provide some indication of the severity of the issue. Cam Brown likely will have an increased role if Fackrell is forced to miss time.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Day comes to end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (calf) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Cincinnati, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

New York will have to proceed without one of its starting outside linebackers for the remainder of the day, an additional loss at the position after Lorenzo Carter (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Oct. 19. Cam Brown likely will be elevated into a prime role for the remainder of the afternoon as a result of Fackrell's departure.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (neck) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against Washington, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

Fackrell was limited in practice due to a neck injury all week, but it doesn't look like his availability was ever in serious danger. He'll draw his usual start at linebacker versus Washington.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Active Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (neck) is active for Sunday's Week 5 tilt against the Cowboys, Dan Salmone of the team's official site reports.

The fifth-year veteran will be out there versus a high-powered Cowboys offense that's averaging 31.5 points per game over the first four weeks of the campaign. Fackrell has been productive after arriving this offseason from the Packers, posting 14 stops (11 solo) and a pair of sacks over his first four games.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (neck) has returned to Sunday's game against the Rams, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Fackrell was briefly examined after injuring his neck, but he's now managed to return early in the fourth quarter. If Oshane Ximines (shoulder) can't return, Fackrell could see an every-down role on defense.

Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Injures neck Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams due to a neck injury, Dan Salmone of the Giants' official site reports.

With Oshane Ximines (shoulder) also having been forced out Sunday, the Giants' outside linebacker group has been quickly depleted. Markus Golden and Lorenzo Carter could be forced to handle every-down roles.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Links up with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants and Fackrell came to terms on a one-year, $4.6 million contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This marks the second Packers linebacker after Blake Martinez to head to New York in as many days. If Markus Golden moves on as an unrestricted free agent, Fackrell could get the opportunity to serve as one of the Giants' starting outside linebackers in 2020. Before Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith landed in Green Bay last offseason and bumped him down the depth chart, Fackrell showed his worth as a pass rusher in 2018, accumulating 10.5 sacks.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Finishes with one sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell had 23 tackles (13 solo) and one sack in 16 games this season.

The 28-year-old also added a sack during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, but he was limited to a rotational role for the entirety of the season. Fackrell essentially came out of nowhere with 10.5 sacks in 2018, but the offseason additions of Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith -- who combined for 25.5 sacks this season -- led to his lowest production since his rookie year. The selection of Rashan Gary in the first round of the 2019 draft increases the likelihood of Fackrell not being re-signed and hitting free agency in March.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Healthy for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.

The offseason additions of Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith have forced Fackrell into a situational role, as he's made just four tackles and hasn't recorded a sack through four games. He'll serve in a similar capacity in this outing.

October 4, 2019 04:16 PM
Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Questionable again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Fackrell finished the week as a limited participant and is listed as questionable for the third straight contest. The 27-year-old has yet to miss a game this season and there's no reason to believe that changes in Week 5.

September 26, 2019 07:04 PM
Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Active for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (shoulder) is active for Thursday's tilt against the Eagles, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Fackrell was limited in practice throughout the week and initially dubbed questionable for Week 4, but he successfully put his shoulder injury behind him. The fourth-year pro will now suit up for his usual rotational role in Green Bay's linebacker corps versus the Eagles.

September 25, 2019 06:16 PM
Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Fackrell was a limited participant in every practice this week, and he followed the same routine before playing in this past Sunday's game versus the Broncos. He's on track to suit up again as long as he doesn't suffer a setback. Fackrell could be called upon for an increased role if Za'Darius Smith (knee) can't go.

September 22, 2019 11:48 AM
Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Good to go for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (shoulder) is officially listed as active for Sunday's matchup against the Broncos.

Fackrell came into the contest logging limited practice but, as evidenced by this news, has shaken off the shoulder injury. With a total of 44 defensive snaps and 39 special teams snaps to this point in the season, expect the linebacker to continue his rotational role for Sunday's contest.
