Saints' Anthony Chickillo: Gets one-year deal in Big Easy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chickillo agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Saints on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Chickillo has spent all five seasons of his career to date playing a rotational role in Pittsburgh's linebacker corps, and he'll now look to carve out a similar gig in New Orleans. The 27-year-old also offers versatility on special teams, but he doesn't possess much (if any) fantasy value in IDP formats.

Steelers' Anthony Chickillo: Disappointing season ends with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chickillo had two tackles (both solo) in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.

Chickillo finishes the 2019 season with 19 tackles including a half sack -- his fewest sack total since his 2015 rookie season -- in 11 games. He has one year remaining on his current contract but offers little individual fantasy value heading in to 2020.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steelers' Anthony Chickillo: Can't go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chickillo (foot) is ruled out for Monday's game versus the Bengals.

This will be the second straight game Chickillo misses, and he's not making great progress after not practicing all week. He mainly serves as a depth asset anyway, so T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree will continue logging full workloads. Chickillo will look to shake the injury before Week 5's game versus the Ravens.

Steelers' Anthony Chickillo: Dealing with foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin said following Sunday's game against the Seahawks that Chickillo was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Plantar fasciitis effects the tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot and includes stabbing pain near the heel. It's unclear how serious Chickillo's case is, but at its worse, it could be serious enough to require surgery. To gage the injury, it will be important to track Chickillo's practice time as the week goes on leading into next Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Steelers' Anthony Chickillo: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chickillo suffered a chest injury during Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

It's unclear how he picked up the injury, but coach Mike Tomlin did say that it's not considered serious. Chickillo recently signed a two-year pact with the Steelers this offseason, so it's presumed he'll have some role in the team for 2019. In Chickillo's stead, Sutton Smith could see an increase in reps.
