Saints' Eli Apple: Posts 10 tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Apple recorded 10 tackles (eight solo), one defended pass and one recovered fumble during Thursday's 31-17 win over the Falcons.

Apple logged his highest single-game tackle total of the season on Thanksgiving Day, and bounced back after having put up five or less tackles in his previous three games. The 23-year-old should continue to see plenty of work whenever New Orleans faces off against heavy passing offenses, but is tough to trust as a weekly starter in IDP formats.

Saints' Eli Apple: First interception with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Apple had three tackles (all solo) and an interception in Sunday's win against the Bengals.

The interception was a gift, as Apple corralled a ball that was tipped into the air by his defensive line in the fourth quarter. Apple nevertheless drew another start -- his third straight -- and has posted solid numbers since coming to New Orleans in a trade with the Giants. So long as opposing quarterbacks continue to avoid throwing at cornerback Marshon Lattimore, Apple should see plenty of action, which gives him value in deeper IDP leagues.

Saints' Eli Apple: Notches five tackles in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Apple made five tackles (four solo) and had one pass defense in Sunday's win against the Rams.

In his second game with New Orleans, Apple started at cornerback opposite Marshon Lattimore, though the Saints' top three cornerbacks (Lattimore, Apple and P.J. Williams) all played every defensive snap as the defense attempted to slow down the prolific Los Angeles passing game. As a result, Apple had another solid fantasy performance as opposing offenses remain hesitant to throw towards the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year Lattimore. So long as Apple continue to start, he should be a decent option in deeper IDP leagues.

Saints' Eli Apple: Team-leading nine tackles in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Apple made nine tackles (all solo) in Sunday night's win against the Vikings.

While fantasy owners likely won't complain about his team-leading nine tackles, Apple had an inauspicious first start with the Saints, as he and fellow cornerback P.J. Williams were picked on repeatedly by Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins. Still, Apple played nearly every defensive snap in Minnesota and probably has a decent leash given the Saints' struggles to find a capable corner man opposite stud cornerback Marshon Lattimore. With opposing quarterbacks likely looking to avoid Lattimore's side of the field, Apple could rack up a decent number of tackles if he remains the starter, making him a serviceable fantasy option in deeper IDP leagues.

Saints' Eli Apple: Slated to start in Sunday's debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Apple will start at corner with Ken Crawley inactive for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Apple was traded from the Giants to the Saints on Tuesday, and it appears he'll have an immediate impact with the team. Through five games this season, he's made 22 tackles (20 solo) and five pass breakups. His task will be difficult in Week 8 against a strong Vikings pass attack.
