Timmons recorded a team-leading 10 tackles (eight solo) during Thursday's 28-7 win at Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

The Steelers' defense held the Colts to 30 yards of total offense to take a 14-0 first quarter lead, and recorded three sacks and had two impressive goal line stands to maintain their lead on the way to a 28-7 win. Their only lapse came on a 35 yard pass from Pat McAfee to Erik Swoope on a fake punt that seemed to rattle the Pittsburgh defense and led to the Colts only score.

Timmons recorded eight tackles (five solo), including a sack in Pittsburgh's 24-9 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons is on track to lead the Steelers' defense in tackles for a fourth straight season, although he is on pace for just two sacks, which would match his lowest total other than his rookie season.

Timmons recorded 12 tackles Sunday against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons had failed to record more than eight stops in any matchup prior to this week, so his performance is a bit of an anomaly. On the season, he's averaging seven tackles while recording just half a sack, making him an IDP option in deeper leagues only.

Timmons totaled eight tackles (three solo), including a half sack in the Steelers' 31-13 win over the Jets on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The half-sack was his first of the season, and Timmons has been one of the more reliable defenders on the team. He is currently on pace for a fifth consecutive season with at least 100 tackles.

Timmons (shin) is expected to be fine for Sunday's game against Kansas City, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons went to the hospital during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, but it turns out the team was just being cautious with an injury that turned out to be nothing more than a deep cut. While he may be in some pain, Timmons should be able to suit up Sunday, whereas fellow inside 'backer Ryan Shazier (knee) is considered closer to questionable. Both players have IDP potential when healthy.

Timmons (shin) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons was actually transported a local hospital for a closer look at his injured shin. The severity is unknown, but it's not too often that players are taken to a hospital for a shin injury. Timmons' ailment is something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.

Timmons recorded a team-high eight tackles (four solo) in Pittsburgh's 38-16 win over Washington Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Picking up right where he left off last season, Timmons seems to have a knack for putting himself in a position to make plays. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, neither Timmons nor any other Steelers' defender could get to Redskins' quarterback Kirk Cousins all night, failing to record a single sack. They'll look to change that in Week 2 when they host the Bengals, who allowed quarterback Andy Dalton to be sacked seven times against the Jets Sunday.

Timmons and the Steelers are not expected to agree on a contract extension prior to kickoff on Monday, meaning he's slated to become a free agent following the 2016 season, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Once the season begins, the Steelers are known to shut down all contract negotiations, so it appears Timmons will head to free agency following the season. Obviously that doesn't rule out Timmons from re-signing with the Steelers once the offseason is here, but it's at least notable that he'll have the option to explore other choices. Timmons has spent his entire 10-year career with the Steelers and hasn't missed a start in each of his last five seasons. He's coming off a 2015 campaign where he compiled 119 tackles, five sacks, one interception and one forced fumble and should remain one of the team's defensive leaders.

Timmons totaled six tackles (five solo) against Denver on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons had a team high 119 tackles (77 solo), including five sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in 2015. Timmons led the resurgence of the Steelers' defense, which finished third in the league with 48 sacks, matching their total from 2010 when they last made it to the Super Bowl. Timmons, who turns 30 this off season, extended his streak of consecutive regular season games played to 104, which is the fourth longest active consecutive games played streak among NFL linebackers. He should continue to be worthy of fantasy consideration in IDP leagues in 2016.
