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

EDGE Analysis

The oft-injured Ellerbe dealt with a quad injury throughout the first half of the season and didn't make his debut until Week 8. Even since his return, however, his playing time had been somewhat limited. But against the Rams, the Saints finally used Ellerbe is more of a full-time role, as he played 91 percent of the defensive snaps, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. With 21 tackles (13 solo), three sacks, five quarterback hits, and one pass defensed in just four games, Ellerbe is rounding into form at just the right time for fantasy owners. If the athletic linebacker is floating on waiver wires, he makes for a sneaky add in many IDP leagues.

Ellerbe had seven tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe made his season debut in Week 8, but was forced unable to give it a go in Week 9 after suffering a setback during practice. Returning to the lineup against Denver in Week 10, Ellebe was a solid contributor, and the sack was actually his first since November 2013. With James Laurinaitis sidelined for the season, Ellerbe could be a sneaky late-season pickup in IDP leagues, as he should see ample playing time the rest of the season, if he can stay healthy.

It will mark just his second appearance of the season, as the quad injury had previously kept him sidelined for the Saints' first six games.

Ellerbe (quadriceps) made five tackles (four solo) on Sunday against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe has been sidelined all year with a nagging quad injury, but he made his season debut in Week 8. While he was immediately thrust into the starting lineup, Ellerbe actually only played 18 snaps (33%) against Seattle, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ellerbe is perpetually an injury risk, but he is also an extremely athletic linebacker and managed 39 tackles (34 solo) in just six games last season, including a 13-tackle performance against Atlanta last October. Assuming he doesn't suffer an injury setback and his playing time continues to creep upwards, Ellerbe could be a sneaky IDP option in the second half of the season.
