Giants' Isaac Yiadom: Best tackle total of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom had 46 tackles (29 solo), 0.5 sacks, five defensed passes and one forced fumble across 16 games with the Giants in 2020.

Yiadom's first season in New York was a successful one, as he put forth the strongest statline of his career while handling 633 defensive snaps. He remains under contract through the 2021 season with the Giants.

Giants' Isaac Yiadom: Officially ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom (calf) is active for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Yiadom is expected to start a third straight game at cornerback. Over his previous two starts, the Boston College product posted 14 tackles, a half sack and a pass breakup. His work in coverage has been less appealing this year, however, as he's allowed a 146.2 passer rating and three touchdowns when targeted.

Giants' Isaac Yiadom: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants are optimistic that Yiadom (calf) will play Sunday against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Yiadom is listed as questionable with the calf issue, so it's likely that the cornerback will test the injury in a workout Sunday before the Giants decide on his status. Yiadom has performed well since taking over as a starter in Week 8, supplying 14 tackles (eight solo), 0.5 sack and a pass breakup while playing 100 percent of defensive snaps.

Giants' Isaac Yiadom: Likely new starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom is warming up with the first-team defense ahead of Sunday's contest against San Francisco, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Adding in the fact that Yiadom outsnapped Corey Ballentine in Week 2, all signs point to Yiadom as the starting corner opposite James Bradberry going forward. Although Yiadom finished with just two solo tackles in last week's loss to Chicago, this news grants a slight uptick for the 24-year-old's IDP value as long as he's in a starting role.

Giants' Isaac Yiadom: Sent to New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom was traded to the Giants via the Broncos on Wednesday in exchange for a 2021 seventh-round pick, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

The Giants saw both Sam Beal and Shakial Taylor opt out of the 2020 season this offseason, so they chose to boost their cornerback room with Yiadom. The 24-year-old was decent in a mostly starting role for the Broncos in 2020, logging 43 total tackles and four passes defensed across 16 games. He'll likely battle for playing time in a depth fashion to begin the season, with James Bradberry and Corey Ballentine expected to handle starting duties.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Ends season with four PDs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom recorded 43 total tackles and four passes defensed in 2019.

Yiadom began the season as the starter opposite Chris Harris Jr. only to lose the job to DeVante Bausby and, later, Davontae Harris before reclaiming the job at the end of the season. Drafted in 2018 when Denver was a press-man team, Yiadom looked out of place at times in Vic Fangio's scheme. It'll be an interesting offseason for Yiadom and the Broncos' secondary as Bausby (neck) and Bryce Callahan (foot) return from injury and Harris Jr. tests free agency. Depending on who stays, who goes, and who comes in, Yiadom can enter 2020 anywhere from CB3 to off the squad.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom will start at cornerback Sunday against the Chargers, Zac Stevens of reports.

Yiadom saw significant snaps during the first two weeks of the season with Devontae Harris out, and now the 23-year-old has bumped Harris from the starting role. The Boston College product has 20 tackles (17 solo) on the season but has yet to register a sack or interception while primarily playing special teams.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Posts eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom made eight solo tackles in Monday's 24-16 loss to the Raiders.

Yiadom's impressive tackle count is partly attributed to his struggles in coverage, as he struggled to lock down Raiders TE Darren Waller. He'll likely continue to be counted on in coverage until Bryce Callahan (foot) returns, which will likely lead to a battle for snaps between Yiadom, De'Vante Bausby and Davontae Harris.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Picks off Jimmy G
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom came up with an interception and passed defensed during Monday's 24-15 preseason loss to the 49ers.

Things fell apart in the second half with the backups on the field, but the Broncos' first-team defense more than held its own against the 49ers' starters, and Yiadom was a big reason why. On the game's opening drive, Jimmy Garoppolo was forced to throw early with Bradley Chubb breathing down his neck, and Yiadom was able to out-wrestle Marquise Goodwin for the ball, setting up a Denver field-goal drive. Veteran teammate Chris Harris Jr. has remarked that Yiadom is more confident now than he was as a rookie. Yiadom figures to play the vast majority of the Broncos' defensive snaps opposite Harris and free-agent pickup Bryce Callahan. Given the recent success of the two veterans, Yiadom should be tested early this season.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Participates in offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom (shoulder) participated in Denver's June minicamp, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.

Yiadom was limited for the first week of OTAs in mid-May, but he seems to have made a full recovery from the separated shoulder he sustained late last season. The 2018 third-round pick recorded 20 tackles (17 solo), three pass breakups and an interception over 13 games in a rotational role for Denver in 2018.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Limited to start OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom (shoulder) is expected to be limited for the first week of OTAs, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Yiadom played through a separated right shoulder over the final few weeks of the season and underwent surgery in the offseason, then participated in individual drills during voluntary workouts in April. The 2018 third-round pick played well as a rookie despite the injury, with 20 tackles (17 solo), three passes defensed and one interception in 13 games.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Participating in voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom (shoulder) participated in individual drills during this week's minicamp, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.

Yiadom underwent offseason surgery to correct a shoulder injury he sustained sometime during the 2018 season. He's yet to receive clearance to participate in team drills, but the Broncos don't have any reason to rush him back into full-speed drills this early in the offseason anyway. When fully healthy, the 2018 third-rounder will compete for a depth role behind Kareem Jackson, Chris Harris and Bryce Callahan ahead of the 2019 campaign.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom has undergone surgery to repair a separated shoulder he suffered in the regular season, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Yiadom injured his shoulder late last season, but the issue wasn't thought to be serious after he played the final two games of the campaign. The surgery could jeopardize his ability to participate in OTAs, but is not expected to sideline him once training camp rolls around.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Ready to roll for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom (shoulder) practiced fully Saturday and doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's contest against the Raiders, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Yiadom missed last Saturday's game against the Browns due to the shoulder issue, but he should slot back into the lineup Monday. He's moved into a starting role with Chris Harris (lower leg) on injured reserve.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom (shoulder) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Browns, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Yiadom suffered a separated shoulder during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, and will sit out Week 15 as he manages his recovery. Tramaine Brock (ribs) is in line to start at right cornerback against the Browns if he's able to suit up.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Day-to-day with separated shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom is listed as day-to-day after separating his shoulder during Sunday's game, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

The specifics of Yiadom's shoulder issue help clear up some previous uncertainty. Luckily for the rookie, the injury doesn't appear to be serious, and he'll likely be return to action before the season ends. The question now shifts to his availability for next week's tilt with the Browns.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers, Patrick Smyth of the Denver Broncos reports.

Yiadom seemed to suffer the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's contest, and had to be helped off the field by the medical staff. Newly signed Jamar Taylor could be pressed into action with Yiadom sidelined.

Broncos' Isaac Yiadom: Could win No. 3 job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yiadom is listed as a second-team corner on Denver's initial depth chart, the Broncos' official site reports.

Yiadom is listed ahead of 2017 third-round pick Brendan Langley and veteran C.J. Smith. Yiadom, a third-rounder out of Boston College, has reportedly impressed coaches with his length and smarts during his first training camp. Veteran Tramaine Brock, who has battled recent hamstring issues, should still be favored for the No. 3 job, but Yiadom is looking like a good pick early on.
