Young (knee) tallied a sack and a tackle Sunday against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Young has only collected 1.5 sacks over his last six games after starting out the season hot with six sacks in the first six matchups of 2016. It's certainly possible that he could get hot to end the season, making him an upside add in IDP leagues during the fantasy playoffs.

Young (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Young will take the field in Week 11 after being limited in practice throughout the week, coming off a performance against the Buccaneers in which he racked up five tackles (two solo) and half of a sack. He'll be backed up by Sam Acho and Pernell McPhee at outside linebacker.

Young (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Young, who was limited in practice throughout the week, could be in danger of potentially missing the Bears' Week 11 contest. On a more positive note, he hasn't missed a single game yet this season, so he may be able to play through the issue on Sunday.

Young posted half a sack along with five tackles Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Although Young now has 6.5 sacks on the season, this was the first time in three games that he's been able to get to the quarterback. Despite not recording a sack in five of nine games, he's already had a pair of multi-sack games, making him a high-upside option in IDP leagues.

Young recorded one tackle and also had one pass defensed Thursday against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Young came into this game on a major hot streak, as he posted five sacks over his last two contests, but the Packers quick-strike passing game made him pretty much a non-factor in the game. He's still having an excellent season, and he's a strong IDP option with multi-sack upside in any given week.

Young notched a pair of sacks to go along with three tackles Sunday against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

With the Jaguars forced to go to a pass-heavy approach because they were trailing for most of the contest, Young was able to post his second consecutive game with multiple sacks, and he's currently fourth in the NFL with six sacks. Based on his recent performance, he should be rostered in IDP leagues, especially since he finished the 2015 season with 5.5 sacks over his last seven games, making his production more of a trend than an anomaly.

Young is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Young will look to keep the momentum after a three-sack effort Week 5 against the Colts. He's racked up four total sacks through the first five games of the season.

Young recorded three sacks along with five tackles Sunday against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts offensive line did very little to protect Andrew Luck, who he threw 39 passes, and Young took great advantage of his opportunity by having a monster game. Although he now has 16 tackles and four sacks over five games this year, but his weekly downside makes him a difficult player to start in IDP leagues.

Young (knee) is active for Sunday's game against Indianapolis, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Young is slated to start opposite Sam Acho on Sunday. As the only two healthy outside linebackers on the roster, they could be in for heavy workloads in Week 5.
