Saints' Sheldon Rankins: First sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rankins recorded five tackles (two solo) and a sack across 50 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Rankins played in 81 percent of the Saints defensive snaps, good for second-highest on the defensive line only behind Cameron Jordan. A run-stuffer, Rankins does not reach the quarterback often, as he recorded a season-total of two sacks last season.

Saints' Sheldon Rankins: Makes impact outside of stats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rankins recorded 26 tackles (16 solo), two sacks, one pass defensed, one interception and one forced fumble across 16 games in 2017.

The 2016, 12th overall selection's performance in 2017 may look underwhelming on paper, but the defensive tackle had a major impact transforming the Saints' defense in 2017. Although he played seven more games than his rookie season, Rankins statistical totals almost mirror his rookie totals -- his sack total was also cut in half in 2017. However, Rankins split time on the inside and outside of the defensive line for portions of the season, filling in for Alex Okafor (Achilles), who ended up on injured reserve. Playing defensive tackle doesn't necessarily draw great statistical numbers, but Rankins' leadership and playmaking ability deems him one of the most valuable members of the Saints' defense.

Saints' Sheldon Rankins: Logs best game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rankins notched his first sack and interception of the season in Sunday's dominant victory over the Bills.

Rankins was only on the field for 28 defensive snaps (58.0 percent), but he made his presence felt. The 23-year-old intercepted opposing quarterback Tyrod Taylor mid-way through the third quarter, which resulted in a 27-yard return. He will look to carry his momentum into the Saints' Week 11 matchup versus the Redskins.
