Jordan made four tackles (three solo), including a sack, in Sunday's win against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan is a notoriously streaky player. In his first four games this season, Jordan had 2.5 sacks and 17 tackles, but in Weeks 6-9 he managed just nine tackles and a half sack. Since his mid-season lull, the Saints' top pass rusher has heated back up, recording 16 tackles and two sacks in his last three games. Although he will need to continue his hot play in the team's final five games to notch double-digit sacks for the second year in a row, Jordan is finding his groove at just the right time for his fantasy owners.

Jordan made nine tackles (eight solo), including a sack among his three tackles for loss, in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan spent most of the afternoon in the Broncos' backfield harassing quarterback Trevor Siemian, and his nine tackles were also a career high. While Jordan still has only four sacks through 10 games, he has notched 1.5 sacks in his last two games, which, perhaps not coincidentally, also mark the return of prized rookie Shelden Rankins to the Saints' lineup. With players like Rankins demanding extra attention along the defensive line, Jordan could see additional opportunities to exploit overmatched offensive lines.

Jordan made two tackles and recorded half a sack of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the Saints' Week 9 win in San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan has only three sacks through the Saints' first eight games and is on pace for a mere six sacks, which would be his fewest since his rookie year in 2011. There have been no reports that Jordan is injured, so perhaps Sunday's half sack will propel him to a big second half, starting in Week 10 against a Denver offensive line that ranks in the bottom 10 in sacks allowed in 2016.

Jordan played 75 of the Saints' 82 defensive snaps in Week 6, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He made four tackles (two solo) and batted down a pass against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan now has 2.5 sacks and 21 combined tackles this season. While his sack total is slightly off his typical pace -- he has averaged nearly 10 sacks per season over the last four years -- sacks often come in bunches for the talented defensive end. Further, Jordan is actually on pace to approach his career high in tackles (67 in 2012). Although the Saints once again have one of the worst defenses in the league, Jordan should continue to be a solid option for IDP owners.

Jordan (knee) has been ruled active for Monday night's contest against the Falcons, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan recorded eight tackles, a pass defended, and one sack in Week 2's loss to the Giants. At the time it appeared he came out of the game healthy. However, he was a surprising addition to the Saints' final injury report on Saturday when he was labeled questionable. However, that appears to have been a precautionary measure by the team as he will suit up Monday.

Jordan (knee) is questionable to play on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan was a surprise addition to the injury report this week, but the specifics of his injury remain vague. Bobby Richardson may get the start at defensive end if Jordan is ruled out.

Jordan made eight tackles (four solo), including his first sack of the season, in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Although Jordan has double-digit sack potential, he has not topped 51 tackles in a season since 2012, when he made 67 stops in his sophomore campaign. yet, after a sub-par performance in Week 1, Jordan was a force along the defensive line and his eight tackles were his most in a game since Week 1 of 2012. If Jordan can once again take down ball carriers at a high rate, in addition to sacking the quarterback, he could be a fantasy monster.

Jordan managed only one tackle in Sunday's season opening loss to the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

The Saints' lack of pass rush was noticeable, as the team failed to record a sack and Derek Carr had all day to throw in the pocket. Some of that blame certainly falls on Jordan, who made only a single tackle, despite playing 69 of the Saints' 73 offensive snaps, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Jordan is coming off a 10-sack Pro Bowl season, but he has a tendency to disappear at time, as he recorded only a single tackle four separate times in 2015. Nonetheless, he remains a solid IDP option due to his double-digit sack potential.

Although he didn't appear in the box score in the final preseason game on Thursday against the Ravens, Jordan played in both the Saints' second and third preseason contests and has been a full participant in practice for most of training camp.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan underwent back surgery in February, but there have been no reported setbacks during the offseason. Now healthy, Jordan should have the opportunity to build off his 10-sack Pro Bowl season in 2015, particularly with free agent additions Nick Fairley and Paul Kruger drawing some attention away from him.

Jordan (back) practiced without limitations Thursday, Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jordan underwent back surgery in February and wasn't expected to rejoin the team until training camp. However, Jordan was much farther ahead in his recovery than expected and was able to return to the practice field in full for the team's OTAs on Thursday. Jordan is coming off a 10-sack Pro Bowl season and with the back injury finally behind him, he'll have the chance to improve on his numbers.
