Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Finishes with 95 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney recorded 95 tackles (62 solo) and three sacks in 16 games for the Texans in 2017.

McKinney started the season strong with 17 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble across Weeks 1 and 2, but didn't log any other true impact performances. All in all it was a decent season for the 25-year-old, but a definite step down from his 129 tackle and five sack output in 2016. The 2015-second round pick will aim to recreate that production next season as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Posts sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney had seven tackles (five solo) and one sack against the Titans on Sunday.

The third-year pro hadn't posted a sack since Week 2, but his average of 6.2 tackles per game helps make up the difference. McKinney played all 54 defensive snaps Sunday, and since that is expected to keep up, he'll be due for more outings like Week 13.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney finished Sunday's 31-21 victory over the Cardinals with nine tackles (seven solo).

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Leading tackler in Week 6 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney had a team-high eight tackles (seven solo) in a 33-17 win over Cleveland in Week 6.

The eight tackles were the most by McKinney since Week 1, when he was in on 11 stops. He should run away as the Texans' leading tackler but has produced fewer per game this season relative to 2016. McKinney has 39 tackles over six games (6.5 per game) after averaging 8.1 last season.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Listed as active
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

McKinney was only able to log a single limited practice Friday, but that will be enough for Houston's leading tackler to suit up for the Week 6 contest. With 31 stops and two sacks through the first five games, McKinney is a reasonable IDP option against an offense that struggles to move the ball and will be turning over the reigns to new starting quarterback Kevin Hogan this week.
