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.

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.

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.

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.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell (shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Broncos, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Fackrell was limited in each practice this week. The 27-year-old has worked primarily in a rotational role through two games, logging three total tackles over 44 defensive snaps and 39 snaps on special teams. If Fackrell can't play Sunday, Rashan Gary would be left as the only reserve outside linebacker/edge rusher behind Preston and Za'Darius Smith.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Working as backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell had two tackles in Thursday's victory over the Bears.

Fackrell broke out in 2018 with 10.5 sacks, but that did not stop the Packers from adding two high-priced pass rushers in Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith, and both played extensively Thursday while Fackrell was on the field for just 23 snaps. Fackrell will presumably remain behind both players on the depth chart as long as they stay healthy, and he could eventually lose more snaps to first-round pick Rashan Gary, who was on the field for just six plays Thursday.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Finishes with 10.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell recorded a sack in Sunday's loss to the Lions and finished 2018 with 10.5 sacks over 16 games.

Fackrell broke out in 2018, more than doubling the 5.0 sacks he tallied over 29 games in his first two seasons as a pro. Fackrell figures to be back in Green Bay in 2019, given his more-than-reasonable salary, but it remains to be seen in what type of role, as the Packers figure to address the outside linebacker position in the offseason and will have a new coaching staff in place.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Continues to impress as pass rusher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell recorded two tackles (one solo) and one sack during Sunday's victory over the Jets.

Fackrell is now up to a team-leading 9.5 sacks on the season, but it wasn't all smiles Sunday. The young pass rusher also had a number of poor plays -- including one in which he let an easy would-be TFL slip through his hands. Having notched three sacks on two occasions in 2018 but only averaging 2.5 tackles per game, Fackrell will continue to be a low-floor, high-upside IDP option against the Lions in Week 17.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Tallies three sacks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell had six tackles (five solo) and three sacks in Thursday's 27-24 loss to the Seahawks.

Fackrell had already set a new a career high with five sacks prior to Thursday and made his presence known in Seattle. The 26-year-old started the season playing only 17 defensive snaps over the first two games, but he saw an 83 percent snap share Thursday, trailing only Blake Martinez among Packers linebackers. Fackrell leads the team with eight sacks, with Kenny Clark's five representing the next closest tally.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Picks up sack No. 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell tallied four solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's victory over the Dolphins.

Fackrell's sack was his second in three weeks, and raises his total on the season to a career-best five. Fackrell played a season-high 48 snaps in Week 10, and he could see a boost in playing time again this week if Nick Perry (knee) is unable to play Thursday.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Three sacks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell recorded four tackles (all solo), including three sacks, in Sunday's win over Buffalo.

Fackrell had five career sacks through 29 games entering Sunday's matchup with Buffalo, making his three-sack performance more than a little surprising. He's been a backup through his first two NFL seasons, but he could start to see more action if he can maintain his quality play from Week 4. He'll look to stack success as the Packers head to Detroit in Week 5.

Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Tallies three sacks in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell racked up 28 tackles (22 solo) and three sacks over 16 games with the Packers in 2017.

Fackrell contributed more than he did during his rookie season of 2016, but he started just two games and was still primarily a part-time player. He figures to fill a similar role in 2018.

November 21, 2017 07:44 PM
Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Records first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fackrell finished Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Ravens with five tackles (four solo), and his first sack of the season.

Fackrell did his damage across 34 snaps (58.0 percent). His five tackles were also a season high, as he had not recorded more than two previously. If he can log one more sack, the second-year linebacker will match his rookie-season total.
