Giants' Blake Martinez: Tackling machine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez was a tackling machine in his first season with the Giants, racking up 151 stops, good for third in the NFL.

He also added three sacks, an interception, five passes defensed and two forced fumbles. He'll return as the team's top inside linebacker in 2021.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Active as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Martinez was added to the injury report Friday as a limited participant due to the ankle issue, but he's ready to go for Sunday's contest. The 27-year-old leads the team with 128 tackles through 14 games and also has two sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception.

Giants' Blake Martinez: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (ankle) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Ravens, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Martinez surfaced on the injury report Friday when he was listed as a limited participant, but that appears to have been precautionary. The 26-year-old linebacker is set to start Sunday, as he'll look to add to the team-high 128 tackles he's accrued through 14 games.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Dealing with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is questionable for Sunday's game at Baltimore with an ankle injury, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The 26-year-old was added to the injury report as a limited participant Friday, so he could end up being a game-time decision. Martinez has 128 total tackles, two sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles through 14 games, so his potential absence would be significant for the Giants.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Generates 10 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez made 10 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Browns.

Martinez registered double-digit tackles for the sixth time this season, and he's now up to 128 stops through 14 games. He's tied for fourth in the league in the category, sitting just nine tackles shy of league leader Zach Cunningham. Martinez will continue to be a top-notch IDP option in Week 16 against the Ravens.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Active as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (back) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

It was reported earlier Sunday that Martinez was expected to suit up after he was limited in practice with the back injury this week, so this news confirms that notion. The Stanford product has been a strong IDP option this season, racking up 111 tackles and two sacks through 12 games. Expect Martinez to assume his usual starting role at inside linebacker for Sunday's game.

Giants' Blake Martinez: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (back) is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Martinez still needs to clear some pregame hurdles and is officially considered questionable. However, the Giants expect their leading tackler to be available Sunday. Martinez continues to be a top IDP option, as he's piled up 111 tackles, two sacks, five pass breakups and an interception through 12 games.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (back) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Martinez is the engine of the Giants' defense, having racked up 111 tackles after posting at least 144 in each of his last three seasons in Green Bay. The linebacker missed Wednesday's practice due to his back injury but has upgraded to limited sessions since then to give himself a chance to suit up Sunday.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (back) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Martinez didn't practice Wednesday, so it's encouraging to see him back in at least a limited capacity. Coach Joe Judge has expressed optimism about the starting linebacker's chances of suiting up against the Cardinals on Sunday, but a final decision likely won't be made until after Friday's practice.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Despite Martinez' unavailability Wednesday, coach Joe Judge said he's hopeful Martinez will be able to play Sunday against the Cardinals, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports. While Martinez' absence would be a major blow to the surprisingly stingy Giants defense, the team has the personnel to overcome his absence, with rookie Tae Crowder likely to play a larger role at inside linebacker alongside David Mayo.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Leaves with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (back) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Martinez is the pillar of New York's linebacker corps, so the Seahawks could have a substantially easier time moving the ball if he's unable to return Sunday. Tae Crowder and Devante Downs will be candidates to see increased defensive snaps as long as Martinez is sidelined.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Secures first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez had 10 tackles (three solo) and one interception during Sunday's 23-20 win over Washington.

The 26-year-old reached double-digit tackles for the first time since Week 6 and also grabbed his first interception of the season. Martinez has 92 tackles (54 solo), two sacks, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery through nine games in 2020.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Ready for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Washington.

The veteran linebacker was limited at practice all week due to the hamstring issue, but it won't affect his availability for Sunday's contest. Martinez remains a high-value IDP option for Week 9, per usual.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Pops up on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Martinez didn't miss a snap in Monday's loss to the Buccaneers, so this injury must've popped up in the following days. It's encouraging that he's still practicing, but there's always uncertainty in regards to soft-tissue injuries. Devante Downs (shoulder) was also limited, so David Mayo and T.J. Brunson are the only healthy inside linebackers remaining.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Tallies nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez had nine tackles (six solo) and a forced fumble during Monday's loss to the Buccaneers.

The 26-year-old played every defensive snap and had his first forced fumble of the season as he knocked the ball loose from Ronald Jones during the first quarter. Martinez is tied for the league lead with 82 total tackles in eight games, and he also had two sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Racks up 14 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez had 14 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 20-19 win over Washington.

The 26-year-old played 67 of 73 defensive snaps, and the 14 tackles mark a season high. Martinez remains a valuable IDP option with 64 total tackles (second in the NFL), two sacks and one fumble recovery through six games.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Tallies 13 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez had 13 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Rams.

The 26-year-old racked up 13 tackles during his Giants' debut Week 1 and equaled that total Sunday against the Rams. Martinez has 43 tackles (26 solo) and two sacks through four games, a pace that would set career highs in both categories over a full season.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Logs 12 stops in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez posted 12 tackles (eight solo) in Monday's 26-16 loss to the Steelers.

Martinez registered at least 144 tackles in three straight seasons with the Packers before signing with the Giants this past offseason. It doesn't look like much has changed in the Big Apple for Martinez, as he led the team in tackles and played every defensive snap. He'll be tasked with shutting down RB David Montgomery in Week 2 against the Bears.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (foot) is not listed on Thursday's injury report, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Martinez was limited by a foot injury throughout much of training camp, but he's managed to secure a clean bill of health to begin the regular season. The 26-year-old manage at least 144 tackles in each of the last three seasons with Green Bay, so he'll enter Monday's game against the Steelers as a high-end IDP option.

Giants' Blake Martinez: Works into individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (foot) participated in individual drills Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Martinez has been bothered by this foot injury for a couple of weeks now, but it's encouraging that he was back in the mix seven days before the season opener versus Pittsburgh. His status should become clearer as the week progresses since the Giants will release an official practice report Thursday. Heading into his fifth season, Martinez has established himself as an IDP gem with at least 144 tackles in each of the last three campaigns with Green Bay.
