Texans' Jahleel Addae: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae (knee) will not travel with the team for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs.

Addae was limited at practice all week, but he will not be given the green light for Sunday's. In his absence, Mike Adams will presumably step in at free safety.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae (knee) is questionable for Sunday's playoff game at Kansas City.

Addae was limited at practice all week and appears on track to play this weekend. The 29-year-old seemed hampered by the injury last week and played only 35 percent of defensive snaps during the win over the Bills.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae (Achilles) is day-to-day, and coach Bill O'Brien said he'd know more later in the week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Addae was clearly hampered by this injury during Saturday's wild-card win over the Bills, as he left the field limping at times and played just 35 percent of defensive snaps. It's unclear if he'll be able to play through the injury again, and his practice status will likely be watched closely.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae (Achilles) has been cleared for Saturday's playoff game against the Bills.

Addae practiced in limited fashion all week. The team has ultimately given him the green light, and he figures to take on his usual workload at free safety assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Questionable to face Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae (Achilles) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff contest against the Bills.

Addae logged a trio of limited practices this week, which bodes well for his chances of suiting up to host the Bills on Saturday. If he were forced to miss any time, however, Mike Adams and A.J. Moore would be candidates to play increased roles on defense.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Should be ready for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae (Achilles) was limited during Tuesday's practice.

Although Addae is battling an injury, he expects he'll be ready for Saturday's Wild Card playoff matchup against the Bills, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. The 29-year-old safety played 31 of a possible 62 defensive snaps in this past Sunday's win over the Titans, and he registered seven tackles.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Piles up nine stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae tallied nine tackles (six solo) during Thursday's 20-17 win over the Colts.

Addae filled in as a starting strong safety while Justin Reid (concussion) was inactive, and he produced his highest tackle total since Week 5. Reid may return for Week 13's game against the Patriots, so Addae's IDP relevancy may be shortlived.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Nabs INT in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae recorded two solo tackles, one defended pass and one interception during Sunday's 26-3 win over the Jaguars.

Addae benefited from quarterback Gardner Minshew accumulating four turnovers. As long as Addae remains relegated to a backup role at free safety, he won't warrant fantasy consideration in IDP formats.

Texans' Jahleel Addae: Leading tackler Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae had a team-high 11 tackles in Sunday's 53-32 win over the Falcons in Week 5.

Addae, who is a backup at free safety, had 10 tackles in 35 snaps on defense and one more on special teams. It was a big day in the tackling department for the Texans secondary. In addition to their role supporting the run, members of the secondary had to guard against 46 pass attempts (32 completions) by Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan. Four of the team's top five tacklers were cornerbacks or safeties.

Jahleel Addae: Headed to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae agreed in principle Wednesday with the Texans on a contract, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Addae hit the free-agent market when the Chargers cut him March 9, likely for the purpose of freeing up cap space. The Texans were able to swoop in and nab the accomplished safety, presumably at a more appealing price. The 29-year-old may not unseat Tashaun Gipson or Justin Reid for a starting role, but Addae should tentatively slot in as the team's third safety and potentially see time at linebacker during obvious passing downs.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Hitting open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae was released by the Chargers on Saturday, Eric D. Williams of reports.

It looks like yet another safety is expected to hit the open market, with Addae ranking among the most accomplished when it comes to his tackling acumen. Slated to make just over $12 million over the course of the next two seasons, the emergence of All-Pro safety Derwin James and the continual development of other secondary players such as Adrian Phillips, Jaylen Watkins and Rayshawn Jenkins made Addae expendable. The 29-year-old safety is likely better suited for a pseudo-linebacker role as opposed to a starting safety at this point in his career, but it's hard to suggest the six-year veteran won't find a team by the start of the 2019 preseason given his notable resume that includes 367 career tackles.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Secures 13 tackles despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae compiled 13 tackles (seven solo) in the divisional-round loss to the Patriots on Saturday.

In a superlative-laden secondary, Addae was the odd man out, seeing the likes of Desmond King, Derwin James and Adrian Phillips all earn All-Pro honors, with the latter two earning trips to the Pro Bowl to boot. Recording 75 tackles despite playing a full 16-game season isn't exactly a sterling combination for the hard-hitting safety, but his impact on the defense likely went beyond counting stats: Addae's presence near the line of scrimmage opened up holes for the aforementioned players to secure tackles. The 28-year-old could leave this offseason thanks to an opt-out clause in his contract, but so long as he retains his starting strong safety spot, the partnership appears to be mutual for the foreseeable future.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae tallied eight tackles (six solo) in the 26-21 victory over the Bengals on Sunday.

Addae has seen his production slip this season with the emergence of Denzel James and Adrian Phillips, despite the fact the veteran safety has played in 98 percent of the team's defensive snaps. Generally considered one of the hardest hitting safeties in the NFL, Addae's worth might be more important to the Chargers than fantasy owners.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Records double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae recorded 10 tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 25-17 win over the Seahawks.

Addae has been inconsistent through most of the season, but it's difficult to ignore Sunday's numbers. Utilizing a variety of three-safety sets, Addae was a disruptive player, particularly against the run. He and the rest of the Chargers defense will square off against a turnover-prone Raiders squad next week.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae tallied nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 38-14 win over the Browns.

Addae led the team in tackles for the first time this season, taking advantage of Baker Mayfield's tendency to check down to rack up a plethora of stats. While the hard-hitting safety has lost a bit of luster alongside emerging star Derwin James, Addae has registered at least five tackles in four of the six games this season and remains a safe IDP choice in deeper leagues.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Tallies five tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae finished Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Chiefs with five tackles (three solo).

Addae took over his normal role at strong safety while 2018 first-round pick Derwin James manned the free safety spot, and both players played up to their potential despite the high-scoring affair. Addae set a career high in tackles (96) in 2017, and situated in arguably one of the deepest secondaries in the NFL, the 28-year-old appears poised to repeat similar numbers. Addae is expected to have a nice matchup against the struggling Bills next week.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Taking snaps at free safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae looked impressive throughout a variety of snaps at free safety during the team's mandatory minicamp, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

It's a bit of a surprise to see Addae playing free safety at all given his success last year at strong safety and the introduction of a new nominal free safety, 2018 first-round pick Derwin James. However with Woike reporting James has been practicing at both positions, the Chargers could simply be attempting to figure out what starting unit will be the most efficient and effective. Regardless, both players should see the majority of the time at the respective safety positions, so the designations, while interesting, shouldn't hinder either player's IDP outlooks.

Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Posts career high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae finished 2017 with 96 tackles (66 solo), a half of a sack and seven defended passes.

For the first time since his rookie season, Addae managed to stay healthy for the entire campaign, acting as an in-the-box safety for an opportunistic Chargers defense. Not surprisingly, the fifth-year safety posted a career high in tackles, a figure that also slotted in as the sixth most among safeties this season. Long heralded as an intriguing prospect thanks to his reputation as a hard-hitting safety, Addae figures to be one of the better IDP options at his position heading into 2018, despite his struggles recording turnovers (one interception in five seasons).

December 26, 2017 12:56 PM
Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Another solid performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae secured seven tackles (five solo), a half of a sack and a forced fumble in the 14-7 win over the Jets on Sunday.

Addae has been a revelation for the Chargers in his fifth season, as the box safety is set to play in all 16 games for only the second time in his career. Not surprisingly, the 27-year-old is putting up career numbers and is only eight tackles shy of breaking the century mark this season.

December 4, 2017 03:20 PM
Chargers' Jahleel Addae: Tacks on another six tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addae piled up six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Browns.

Gus Bradley's exotic 3-4 scheme continues to benefit Addae, as the hard-hitting safety has adapted well to the additional responsibilities. While the fifth-year player has yet to record a turnover this season, his abilities as an "in-the-box" safety make him a reliable IDP asset.
