Robertson had 11 tackles (5 solo) in Monday night's loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

One of the few bright spots on an otherwise abysmal Saints defense, Robertson actually leads the NFL with 35 tackles. It is still unknown when presumed starting outside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe will make his season debut, but there is a pretty good chance that, given his excellent performance through three games, Robertson continues to start even once Ellerbe returns. As such, Robertson is worth an add in nearly all IDP leagues.

Robertson made 13 tackles (10 solo) in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

After a 11-tackle performance in his Saints' debut, Robertson was once again a force on defense for New Orleans, playing all 79 of the team's defensive snaps, according to Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Although it's uncertain when presumed starter Dannell Ellerbe (quadriceps) will return from injury, Robertson's early-season performance may make it tough to take him off the field regardless of Ellerbe's status. If he is still floating on your league's waiver wire, Robertson is likely worth a grab in nearly all IDP leagues.

Robertson made 11 tackles (8 solo) in Sunday's season opening loss to the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Starting in place of the injured Dannell Ellerbe, Robertson was one of the few bright spots on the Saints' defense. His 11 tackles, which included two tackles for loss, led the team, and while many will focus on the questionable pass interference call against him late in the game, Robertson should continue to be a viable IDP option as long as he starts.

Robertson, who signed a three-year, $5 million deal with the Saints this offseason, is expected to backup Dannell Ellerbe at weak-side linebacker, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

EDGE Analysis

Robertson averaged 84 tackles the past four years, playing both inside and outside linebacker for the Browns. While he will likely start the year in a reserve role, Robertson should provide critical depth at a number of positions, including behind the oft-injured Ellerbe, who has only appeared in seven total games the last two season as a result of various injuries. Should Ellerbe or any of the other Saints' starting linebacker miss time during the year, Robertson would be the likely beneficiary in IDP leagues.

Robertson has signed a three-year contract with the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Robertson registered at least 85 tackles in each of his first three NFL seasons, but managed just 59 last season due to playing only 12 games. Nonetheless, he represents an experienced linebacker that should add dependability to the Saints' linebacking corp going forward.

Robertson (ankle) was limited in Tuesday's practice, the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was questionable in advance of last week's game and ended up playing and recording six tackles, so there is probably a solid chance that he will suit up again Thursday against the Bengals.

Robertson (ankle) had six tackles (two solo) and one quarterback hit in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Robertson had been listed as questionable for the contest due to an ankle injury, but was still able to play and rack up a half dozen tackles. It was his highest single-game tackle total since Week 2 against the Titans, when the 27-year-old collected eight combined stops.

Robertson was tendered a second-round offer Monday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Robertson has increased his tackle total in each of his three professional seasons, finishing with 99 in 2014. In 46 games with the Browns, he's notched 267 tackles (170 solo), five interceptions, four sacks, four fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, and one defensive touchdown. If another organization signs Robertson to a contract that Cleveland refuses to match, they'll receive a second-round selection in exchange.

Robertson, who led the Browns with nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, finished the season with 99 tackles (57 solo), two interceptions and one fumble recovery (which he returned for a touchdown).

Robertson played a major role in keeping the Cleveland defense together when Karlos Dansby went down with a knee injury, collecting 42 combined tackles over the four games he was out. Even though he failed to record a sack on the year, Robertson proved he was more than capable of being a starting inside linebacker in the league, and should receive some attention on the free agent market this offseason. As long as he's able to maintain a starting gig, there's definitely some IDP value to find here.

Robertson had eight tackles (three solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Robertson broke his streak of three straight double-digit tackle performances, but proved he could still be effective, even with Karlos Dansby (knee) back in the lineup.
