Lattimore recorded 52 tackles (43 solo), 18 passes defensed, five interceptions and one forced fumble across 13 games in his rookie season.
The 11th overall pick of last year's draft immediately started paying dividends for the Saints, helping to improve a defense that ranked dead last in yards allowed in 2016. His five interceptions led all rookies and tied him for fifth-best in the league. Only 21, the sky is the limit for the former Ohio State Buckeye, who will enter the offseason as the Saints top cornerback.
Lattimore had six tackles (five solo), four pass defenses and an interception in Sunday's win over the Falcons.
That's three straight games with an interception for Lattimore, who has answered the bell after missing two games with an ankle injury. The six combined tackles are the rookie cornerback's second-highest total of the season, and he has an even more favorable matchup against Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers in Week 17.
Lattimore had five tackles (three solo), three pass defenses and an interception in Sunday's win against the Jets.
Lattimore's inteception came on the meaningless last play of the game but fantasy owners will certainly take it. The rookie first-round pick now has four interceptions this season and is up to 44 total tackles in just 11 games. The playmaking cornerback may be worth a look in deeper IDP leagues in a Week 16 rematch against the Falcons, a team against whom he notched three tackles and an interception just a couple weeks ago.
Lattimore made three tackles (two solo) and had an interception in Thursday night's 20-17 loss to the Falcons.
Lattimore spent much of the game following around Julio Jones, getting the better of the superstar receiver on a short route where Lattimore stepped in front of Jones to make his third pick of the season. Returning from a two-game absence due to an ankle injury, Lattimore was forced to take a few plays off to catch his breath on the sidelines, but the rookie corner again showed off his playmaking ability. With 39 total tackles and three interceptions on the year, Lattimore may be worth a look in deeper IDP leagues.
Lattimore (ankle) is active for Thursday's game against the Falcons, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.
Lattimore returns from a two-game absence Thursday night after being limited in practice the entire week. The rookie will be tasked with containing Julio Jones, which is arguably his toughest challenge so far this season. If he is bothered by the ankle injury, expect P.J. Williams to potentially see increased reps on defense.
