Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Tackling machine in Week 8 upset
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker collected 13 total tackles, one QB hit and one pass deflection during Sunday's 28-17 win against the Rams.

Baker is yet to register an interception or a fumble recovery in his seven appearances this season, though he has been a steady contributor with at least six tackles in all but one of his outings. The 2018 third-round pick also has two sacks on the season, just one shy of his career high with nine games left to go. Baker has really been dialing it up in pass rush of late, recording three QB hits over his past three games played.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Disruptive in upset win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker had a team-high eight tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 43-17 win over the 49ers. He also notched one sack and two quarterback hits.

After three relatively quiet games, Baker has finally strung together a performance somewhat resembling his game-wrecking Week 1 showing. The third-year linebacker hasn't yet proven the sort of consistency that would make him a high-end IDP asset, but Baker's upside nonetheless puts him in the conversation as an every-week fantasy option.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Six tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker racked up six tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Bills.

Baker followed up a huge Week 1 performance with a quieter day, but he still played 93-percent of his team's defensive snaps, proving his value to Miami's defensive scheme. Baker and the Dolphins will take on the Jaguars in Week 3.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Enormous effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker notched 16 tackles (13 solo), one sack, one quarterback hit and a forced fumble during Sunday's 21-11 loss to the Patriots.

Baker led the Dolphins in tackles and looked like the team's clear top linebacker during Sunday's divisional loss. The 2018 third-round pick's consistent tackle numbers already make him a noteworthy IDP asset, so if he's able to continue building momentum as a pass rusher this season, Baker could emerge as a third-year breakout candidate. Of course, it's likely that facing an opposing quarterback as mobile as Cam Newton served to accentuate Baker's tackle and sack opportunities Week 1.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker is not on Wednesday's injury report, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Baker picked up an undisclosed injury a couple weeks ago, but his name doesn't appear on Miami's first official injury report of the season, so the 2018 third-round pick should be out there for the season opener come Sunday.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Dealing with mystery injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker is battling an undisclosed injury, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Baker suffered the injury during Friday's practice but walked off the field under his own power. There are still no reports on Baker's condition, but it's concerning that he hasn't returned to the field yet. If he gets back to full health, the 23-year-old linebacker is poised to start again this season after racking up 126 stops, 1.5 and four pass breakups in 2019.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Activated from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins have activated Baker off the team's reserve/COVID-19 list.

The 2018 third-rounder is thus poised to return to his role as a starting inside linebacker in Miami's defense. It's an assignment that yielded him a fantasy-worthy total of 126 tackles to go along with 1.5 sacks in 2019.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Going on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins placed Baker on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday.

Baker ranked fifth in defensive snap share (96.8 percent) among all linebackers last season, finishing 14th in the NFL with 126 tackles. On top of that, he tallied four pass breakups, two forced fumbles, 1.5 sacks and one interception. His inclusion on the COVID list implies he either tested positive and has had recent contact with someone who did. Once he's cleared to enter the Dolphins' facilities, Baker will resume manning inside linebacker on a revamped defense.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Big tackling day in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one forced fumble during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Patriots.

Baker set career-best marks across the board in 2019, notching a team-high 127 tackles (77 solo), 1.5 sacks, four defended passes, one interception and two forced fumbles. The 2018 third-round pick will likely reprise his role as a starting interior linebacker in Miami come 2020, making him a strong candidate for repeated IDP relevance.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Patriots, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Baker practiced without restrictions Friday, an indication that he's fully shed the ankle issue that limited him Thursday. The second-year pro is on track to play his usual every-down role in Miami's linebacker corps during Sunday's season finale in New England.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker was limited in Thursday's practice due to an ankle issue, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Baker wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, so his ankle issue may have been sustained during practice. In any case, there's not yet any reason to worry about his availability for Sunday's divisional contest against the Patriots.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Another huge tackling day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker recorded 12 tackles (seven solo) and one defended pass during Sunday's 38-35 win over the Bengals.

Baker has now notched 12 tackles in two consecutive contests. The second-year pro has already recorded a career-high 118 tackles (71 solo) through 15 games. He'll look to add to that total during Week 17's divisional tilt against the Patriots.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker notched 12 tackles (six solo), one defended pass and one interception during Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.

Baker notched his first interception of the season during Sunday's loss. He also matched his career-best mark for tackles in a single contest. The second-year pro is a solid fantasy option in IDP formats due to his high floor as a run stopper.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Totals nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker had nine tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets.

Baker had a relatively quiet Week 13 with only four stops, but he rebounded with solid production against the Jets. The 2018 second-round pick has been a quality IDP producer this season with 95 tackles (58 solo), one sack and one forced fumble through 13 games.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (chest) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Baker was a full participant in Friday's practice. The second-year pro is on track to draw his usual start at inside linebacker during Sunday's divisional tilt against the Jets.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Leaves game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (chest) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

It's unclear how Baker picked up the injury, but he was forced to leave the game late in the third quarter. As long as the Ohio State product is sidelined, look for Deon Lacey to be the primary beneficiary to see an increase in snaps at inside linebacker and on special teams.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Solid tackling day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker notched seven tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 41-24 loss to the Browns.

Baker has now tallied at least seven tackles in his last five games. The second-year linebacker's consistency stopping the run makes him a viable weekly IDP asset, but his lack of upside as a pass rusher puts a slight cap on his ceiling.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Stacks up stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker tallied 12 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 37-20 loss to the Bills.

Baker achieved a career high in stops, and the sophomore third-rounder is on track for 120 tackles this season. He's only 22 years old too, so Baker's upward trajectory is appealing, especially once the Dolphins leverage their assortment of draft picks into additional defensive support over the next few years.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Tallies sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker notched eight tackles (seven solo), one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 16-12 win over the Colts.

Baker had his best outing of the season Sunday, recording his first sack of the year by bringing down quarterback Brian Hoyer. The second-year pro's strong performance as a run stopper proved essential as Miami secured a second win. He'll look to keep up the momentum during Week 11's divisional tilt against Buffalo.

Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker had nine tackles (eight solo) in Monday's loss to the Steelers.

Baker had a productive evening in Pittsburgh after failing to exceed six tackles in each of the previous four games. The 2018 third-round pick has 48 tackles (31 solo) and one pass defensed while starting six of seven games this season.
