Colts' Zaire Franklin: Just one tackle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin started at weak-side linebacker and had one total tackle in Sunday's loss at Seattle.

Franklin won a starting linebacker role in the preseason, but played just on 17 of the defense's 54 snaps. He came off the field in nickel and dime packages, which limits his fantasy upside.

Colts' Zaire Franklin: Gets reps as starting linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin took the initial snaps as the starting strong-side linebacker in the team's recent voluntary offseason workouts being held at team headquarters, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

Bobby Okereke looks set to be the starting middle linebacker this season with the departure of Anthony Walker in free agency, while Franklin will compete for the strong-side role. Franklin mostly worked in a reserve role last season, but he impressed against the run. He struggled against the pass by allowing 14 receptions on 16 targets, according to Pro Football Focus, so he could come off the field in nickel and dime formations.

Colts' Zaire Franklin: Totals 11 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin had 11 tackles (one solo) in Thursday's 38-24 loss to the Patriots.

Franklin made a minimal defensive impact through the first four weeks of the season, but he played all 69 defensive snaps with fellow rookie Darius Leonard (ankle) inactive Thursday. Franklin saw 29 total defensive snaps through four games, so his potential IDP value hinges on Leonard's health.
