Ravens' L.J. Fort: Staying in Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens re-signed Fort to a one-year contract Thursday.

Ford notched a career-high 53 total tackles across 14 games with the Ravens last year, in addition to two pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery which he returned for a score. The 31-year-old will be a key factor in Baltimore's linebacker corps, but as long as he's only playing a rotational role he won't offer much in the way of fantasy value.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Will face Titans in Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (finger) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Titans.

Fort was a full participant throughout the practice week after being forced to sit out the Ravens' past two games with his finger injury. All indications pointed toward him playing Week 11, and now it's confirmed the 30-year-old will return to his starting inside linebacker slot Sunday for a rematch of January's divisional-round loss to Tennessee.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Pegged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (finger) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Titans.

Fort practiced without limitations Friday, so it looks like he's on track to play Sunday barring a setback. The Northern Iowa product has started the last six games he played, but he logged more than a 50 percent snap share on just one occasion in that stretch. He's a tough IDP play at that rate, especially while averaging just 3.7 tackles per contest.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (finger) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Fort was forced to miss the past two games with the finger issue, but as evidenced by this news, he appears to be on track to return for Week 11. Now that Fort is officially healthy, he'll look to return to his usual starting role as one of the team's inside linebackers for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Can't go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (finger) is inactive for Sunday's game in New England.

Fort's finger injury will force him to miss a second straight contest. In his stead, Malik Harrison could receive another opportunity to start alongside Patrick Queen.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Activated off COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (finger) was activated off the Ravens' reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday,

Fort never tested positive for the illness, but he was considered a high-risk close contact to teammate Marlon Humphrey, who has tested positive. While Fort has been activated, he still remains sidelined with a finger issue for the time being.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Heads to COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fort is considered a high-risk close contact to Marlon Humphrey, who tested positive for the virus Monday, and he'll need to isolate for five days. If Fort tests negative through Saturday, he'll be available for Sunday's road clash versus the Colts. Matt Judon, Patrick Queen, Malik Harrison and Tyus Bowser all landed on the list as well. If any of the five linebackers test positive and are forced to sit out, the Ravens likely will call up a practice squad player.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Active Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (thigh) is active Week 4 against Washington.

Fort was limited in practice all week, but it looks as if he'll suit up for his regular role at inside linebacker. He recorded five tackles in 43 defensive snaps a week ago, while also logging 20 snaps in a special-teams role.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Makes two sacks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort recorded 35 tackles (21 solo), two sacks and one defended pass across 12 regular-season games with the Ravens in 2019.

Fort also appeared in four regular-season contests with Philadelphia, during which he notched two tackles (one solo). He joined Baltimore as a free agent in late September and ultimately earned a two-year contract extension with the team. Expect Fort to contribute as a rotational linebacker and special-teams asset during the 2020 season.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Earns two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort signed a two-year contract extension with the Ravens on Friday.

Fort joined the Ravens as a free agent in late September. He's found success as a rotational linebacker and special-teams asset in Baltimore, recording 14 tackles (11 solo), one sack and one defended pass across four games, so it's not surprising that the team has opted to lock him up for the immediate future.

Ravens' L.J. Fort: Lands in Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort signed a contract with the Ravens on Monday.

Fort spent the first four games of the season in Philadelphia, where he did most of his damage on special teams. He projects to play a similar role with the Ravens, and he could also provide depth at the linebacker position with Otaro Alaka (hamstring) on IR.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: 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.

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

Fort (ankle) is considered doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

Fort was unable to log a practice in any capacity this week. The 28-year-old sustained the injury last week against the Falcons. If Fort misses playing time, Matthew Thomas could get more snaps.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Sits out Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort was held out of Wednesday's practice with an apparent ankle injury, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Fort allegedly sustained the ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Falcons. His absence during Wednesday's session raises real concerns regarding his status for Sunday. More certainty pertaining to his availability should become apparent as Sunday inches closer. If he can't play, Matthew Thomas could be asked to play a bigger role for the divisional tilt.
