Eagles' L.J. Fort: Signs with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort signed with Philadelphia on a three-year deal, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Fort will head to his fourth NFL team for his age-29 season after spending the last three seasons in Pittsburgh, and is coming off the best season of his five-year career. He racked up 48 combined tackles (38 solo) in 2018, in addition to a sack and one defensive touchdown. Fort is also an experienced special teamer, logging a career-high 333 snaps on special teams in 2018. Look for him to play a versatile role in Philadelphia.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Team-leading eight tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort recorded eight tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

The unrestricted free agent finishes the 2018 season with 48 tackles -- including one sack -- and one fumble recovery in 15 games. The 48 tackles exceeded his career total of 35 tackles over three seasons. He made $1.3 million over the past two seasons with Pittsburgh and could be a bargain if he returns to back up Vince Williams and Jon Bostic at inside linebacker in 2019.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Sets career high for tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort led the team with 12 tackles (nine solo) during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Chargers.

Coming in to the contest Fort had just 23 tackles this season and had never recorded more than 10 in a single game. His 12 tackles were more than he had all last season and his 35 tackles are a personal best. Next up is Oakland - who Pittsburgh defeated 38-35 in their last meeting in 2015.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Fort has not seen the field since Week 5 due to a lingering ankle injury, but appears to be nearing a full recovery. If the rotational linebacker is able to continue practicing without limitations as the week continues, he should be expected to suit up for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Inactive Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Fort did not practice this week and was listed as doubtfu, so this was to be expected. Matthew Thomas could see increased snaps on special teams and serve as Jon Bostic's backup at inside linebacker.
