Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Manages nine sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah had 43 tackles (26 solo), nine sacks, five defended passes and three forced fumbles across 16 games in 2020.

Ogbah notched a new career-high in terms of snaps during his inaugural season with the Dolphins, providing exactly the sort of pressure off the edge that the team hoped for when he was signed to a two-year, $15 million contract last March. Though Ogbah's deal includes a potential out this offseason, Miami could certainly opt to keep him in house for 2021 given the quality of his play in 2020.

Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Snaps sack drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah posted three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 22-12 win over the Patriots.

Ogbah failed to mark a sack in four straight games, but he came up big in the fourth quarter Sunday, sacking Cam Newton on fourth down to clinch the Dolphins' ninth win and force the Patriots out of playoff contention. The fifth-year defensive end sports a career-high nine sacks this year (ninth in the league).

Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Records sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah recorded five tackles (four solo), one sack and one pass defensed Sunday against the Cardinals.

Ogbah has been difficult to slow down over the last few weeks, recording at least one sack in each of his last five contests. He's currently tied for fourth in the league with seven sacks on the season, sitting behind Trey Hendrickson (7.5 sacks), Myles Garrett (nine sacks) and Aaron Donald (nine sacks). Ogbah will aim to continue his recent success in Week 10 against the Chargers.

Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Two sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah recorded five tackles (three solo) and two sacks across 53 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Ogbah was a menace on the field Sunday, including a sack that resulted in a 28-yard loss. He now has five sacks on the year including four in the past three games. He is only playing in around 65 percent of the defensive snaps this season but could see an uptick if his high level of play continues.

Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Brings down Wilson in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah had five tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Seahawks.

Ogbah had logged back-to-back games with a half-sack prior to Sunday's contest, bringing his total for the season to two sacks through four games. He'll look to keep up his momentum against a San Francisco squad that could get Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) back in the lineup Week 5.

Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Cleared from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah (pectoral) said Thursday that he's been cleared to resume workouts, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Ogbah missed the final six games of the 2019 regular season with Kansas City due to a torn pectoral injury he suffered Week 10. The 26-year-old has been a consistent threat in the pass rush since coming into the league in 2016, earning 18 sacks over 50 career games. Now healthy, he's one of a few offseason additions for the Dolphins in a defensive overhaul heading into 2020.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Joins Miami project
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah (pectoral) is signing a two-year, $15 million contract with the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Ogbah become the latest piece for Miami's defensive overhaul, joining CB Byron Jones, LB/DE Kyle Van Noy and DE Shaq Lawson. The 26-year-old defensive end is recovering from a pectoral tear that sent him to IR in November, but prior to the injury he was well on his way to a career season in his first year with the Chiefs -- 32 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 11 QB hits in 10 games. Ogbah previously spent three seasons in Cleveland, where he averaged 40.7 tackles, 4.2 sacks and 9.7 QB hits in 13.3 games per year. His 70.1 PFF grade in 2019 was easily a career high.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Effective despite injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah (pectoral) finished the 2019 season with 32 tackles (23 solo) and 5.5 sacks over 10 games.

A torn pectoral muscle ended Ogbah's season after just 10 contests, but he was in line for career-best output across the board prior to the injury. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and will presumably find a number of suitors vying for his services.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Moves to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

The 26-year-old was already declared out for the season after tearing his right pectoral muscle last week against the Titans, so the move is simply procedural. Ogbah underwent surgery to address the injury. Gehrig Dieter was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah will undergo season-ending surgery on his torn pectoral muscle this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Chiefs' fears were brought to light Monday, after an MRI confirmed Ogbah suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's game against Tennessee. The Oklahoma State product is set to become a free agent this offseason and is expected to make a full recovery. Ogbah finishes with one of the best campaigns of his career, as he recorded 32 tackles (23 solo) and 5.5 sacks in 10 games. His injury opens the door for more snaps for Alex Okafor (ankle) and Tanoh Kpassagnon.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Waiting for MRI confirmation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs are waiting for the MRI results to confirm Ogbah tore his right pectoral muscle, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

If this injury is confirmed, Ogbah will be ruled out for the season. Houston's J.J. Watt suffered the same injury two weeks ago and is expected to be ready for the 2020 season, so the Chiefs hope Ogbah can receive a similar prognosis. Frank Clark, Tanoh Kpassagnon and Alex Okafor (ankle) are the team's remaining defensive ends. Ogbah tied his career high with 5.5 sacks through 10 games.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Season-ending injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Andy Reid said Ogbah tore his right pectoral muscle during Sunday's 35-32 loss to the Titans, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Although it hasn't been officially confirmed, Ogbah appears to have a season-ending injury. If that's the case, he'll finish the season with 29 tackles (20 solo), 4.5 sacks and three pass breakups over 10 games. The Chiefs currently only have two healthy defensive ends in Frank Clark and Tanoh Kpassagnon, but Alex Okafor (ankle) could return for Week 11's matchup against the Chargers.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Injures chest Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah was forced out of Sunday's game against the Titans with a chest injury, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

The injuries continue to stack up on the Chiefs' defensive front, as Alex Okafor (ankle) is already inactive. With Ogbah on the sidelines, Frank Clark and Tanoh Kpassagnon are the only healthy defensive ends left.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Records another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah recorded four tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Packers.

Ogbah has now logged 4.5 sacks across eight games. The 25-year-old played an increased role on defense Sunday with Frank Clark (neck) sidelined. If Clark is unable to suit up Week 9 against the Vikings, Ogbah will likely draw another start at defensive end.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Returns to sack column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah had three solo tackles, a sack and two passes defensed in Thursday's 30-6 win over the Broncos.

The 25-year-old played 43 of 67 defensive snaps and continues to see a relatively consistent workload behind starting DEs Frank Clark and Alex Okafor. Ogbah has 24 tackles (17 solo), 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble through seven games.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Disruptive in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah recorded two tackles (one solo), 1.5 sacks and one defended pass during Sunday's 33-28 win over the Ravens.

Ogbah now has 2.5 sacks in three games. The 25-year-old appears to be thriving in his role as a rotational pass rusher and complement to Frank Clark and Alex Okafor. He'll look to log another strong performance Week 4 against the Lions.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Notches sack in Chiefs debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah recorded three tackles (two solo) and one sack during Sunday's 40-26 win over the Jaguars.

Ogbah was effective in Sunday's season opener, serving as a rotational pass rusher and complement to Alex Okafor and Frank Clark. The 25-year-old should be locked into a similar role going forward, making him a sack-dependent fantasy option in most IDP formats.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah (oblique) is participating at Monday's practice, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Ogbah left Sunday's practice early due to the oblique injury, but his quick return to the practice field indicates it was a minor issue. The 25-year-old should be available for Saturday's preseason opener against the Bengals, assuming he avoids a setback.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Dealing with olique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ogbah was forced to leave practice early Sunday while dealing with an oblique injury, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

It's unclear how Ogbah picked up the injury, but it's apparently serious enough to force him to leave practice. The Oklahoma State product was shipped to Kansas City this offseason from the Browns, where he racked up 122 tackles and 12.5 sacks in three seasons with the team. Ogbah is expected to have a solidified role in new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's defense, so it's likely the team will be cautious when dealing with the 25-year-old's health.

Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Dealt to Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns traded Ogbah to the Chiefs on Monday in exchange for Eric Murray, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 32nd overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft started each of his 40 games in three seasons for the Browns, recording 122 tackles (70 solo), 12.5 sacks and 17 passes defensed. While his pass-rushing skill never progressed after a 5.5-sack rookie campaign, Ogbah at least proved to be a solid run defender with a propensity for batting down throws. He became expandable after the Browns traded for Olivier Vernon, while the Chiefs have an obvious need for an edge rusher after losing Dee Ford and Justin Houston earlier this offseason. Ogbah likely will handle one of the starting spots at defensive end as the Chiefs transition to a 4-3 scheme under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
