Saints' Sheldon Rankins: Plays in Sunday's preseason tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ranking (Achilles) saw 19 defensive snaps in Sunday's preseason win over the Chargers, Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Rankins ended last season with a strained achilles in Week 17 but he hasn't been held back by the injury whatsoever in 2017. He came off the bench Sunday while Tony McDaniel got the start at defensive tackle, but Rankins is still expected to be a starter come the regular season.

Saints' Sheldon Rankins: Strained Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rankins strained his Achilles in Sunday's loss to the Falcons but should be ready for offseason work, John Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune reports.

Rankins, who suffered a leg injury during training camp this season, spent half of the year on the sideline, but was able to return to the field in Week 9. In nine games with the team, the first-round pick notched 20 tackles, four sacks, and one forced fumble. He'll now turn his focus to returning from the Achilles injury in time for offseason workouts.

Saints' Sheldon Rankins: Second straight game with sack
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rankins had three tackles (all solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Rankins, who made his season debut in Week 9, has three sacks on the season, including sacks in two straight games. Although he still has only 13 tackles on the year, the Saints' first-round draft pick out of Louisville has impressed since coming off injured reserve and is worth a look for teams in IDP leagues in need of defensive line help.

Saints' Sheldon Rankins: Notches sack and forced fumble in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rankins had two tackles (both solo), a sack, and a forced fumble in Sunday's win against the Rams.

Rankins missed the first seven games of the season with a fractured left fibula, but with a pair of sacks in his first four games, the rookie has proven to be a disruptive force along the defensive line. Although Rankins may not rack up many tackles -- he only has 10 so far -- the explosive defensive tackle may be worth a look in some deeper IDP leagues given his ability to pressure the quarterback.
