Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Logs 32 tackles in 12 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ninkovich finished the 2016 regular season with 32 tackles and four sacks over the course of 12 games.

Ninkovich, who is set to play in his third Super Bowl on Sunday, missed four games to start the 2016 season after testing positive for a banned substance. Upon his return, the versatile defender re-established a degree of IDP utility in deeper formats and the 33-year-old is slated to stay in the mix in 2017, as Ninkovich is under contract with the Patriots next season.

Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Records four tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ninkovich was on the field for 46 of 68 defensive snaps in Sunday's 35-17 win over the Bengals, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

After seeing 24 snaps in Week 5, Ninkovich saw an increase in playing time in his second game back from a four-game suspension, recording four tackles in the process. Ninkovich is an option in deeper IDP formats, based on the assumption that he'll remain a key cog in the Patriots' D-line rotation going forward.

Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Eased back in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ninkovich was on the field for 24 of the Patriots' 63 snaps on defense in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Browns, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

In his first game back after serving a four-game suspension, Ninkovich saw most of his work in the Patriots' base defense, while coming off the field in passing situations. While it's not surprising to see him eased him back into the rotation following his suspension and a triceps injury, Ninkovich -- who logged just one tackle Sunday -- should see added snaps in the coming weeks, and when that happens he should re-emerge on the IDP radar.

Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Back in business
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots officially activated Ninkovich from the suspended list in advance of Sunday's game against the Browns, the Boston Herald reports.

The same applies to QB Tom Brady, with the team having created room for the moves by releasing TE Clay Harbor and placing QB Jacoby Brissett on IR earlier this week. While it's possible that he may be eased back into the team's D-line rotation this week -- along Jabaal Sheard, Chris Long and Trey Flowers -- once Ninkovich's workload is re-established, he's of interest in IDP formats.

Patriots' Rob Ninkovich: Reportedly healthy enough to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ninkovich, who had been dealing with a triceps injury and is eligible to return from suspension this week, is reportedly healthy enough to play, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Once Ninkovich is officially reinstated, the injury watch will be on for him this week, as Sunday's game against the Browns approaches. Assuming he trends toward suiting up this weekend, Ninkovich is of some interest to those in IDP formats, given that he recorded 52 tackles and 6.5 sacks while starting at defensive end for the Patriots last season.
