Cameron Jordan DL NO 3 Days

Jordan made three tackles (two solo) and two sacks in Sunday night's win against the Packers.

The Green Bay offensive line is a mess, and Jordan capitalized in prime time, notching sack nos. two and three for the year. Owners who have been patient with the struggling Jordan could be rewarded again on Thursday, as he faces a Carolina offense that ranks among the worst in the league in sacks allowed.

Jordan recorded three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Jordan now sits on a pedestrian 15 tackles for the year, but arguably more troubling for fantasy owners is the fact that he has only a single sack. It doesn't appear that Jordan is nursing any sort of injury, as he played on 64 of 70 defensive snaps. He just simply has not been productive after last season's Pro Bowl campaign. If there's any chance of turning it around it's over the next two weeks, when the Saints face the porous offensive lines of Green Bay and Carolina.

Jordan made four tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win against the Bucs.

It was nice to see Jordan finally show some signs of life, but the four tackles constitute nearly half of his 11 tackles for the entirety of the 2014 season. It's likely best to stay patient with Jordan in the hopes that the Saints can fix whatever is wrong with their anemic pass rush during the Week 6 bye, but fantasy owners can't be faulted for being frustrated, as Jordan still has only one sack to his name and remains well behind last season's pace in tackles.

Jordan made two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's win against the Vikings.

The sack was Jordan's first of the year, a welcomed site for fantasy owners. With only five tackles in three games, Jordan remains well off last year's pace, when he managed 47 tackles, but hopefully Sunday's quarterback takedown will set him up to get on a roll.

Jordan made two tackles (none solo) in Sunday's loss to the Browns. He did, however, bat down two passes at the line of scrimmage.

Jordan made only one tackle in the season opener, an extremely slow start for the young defensive end who made his first Pro Bowl appearance last year. While Jordan shouldn't be expected to post huge tackle totals, it would be wise for IDP owners to stay patient, as Jordan, who made 12.5 sacks in 2013, could get hot at any time.

Jordan had a sack and a forced fumble in Friday's preseason game against the Titans.

After a breakout campaign in 2013 in which he earned his first Pro Bowl invite, Jordan appears primed for another big season for the Saints. Entering only his fourth NFL season, Jordan should be one of the first defensive linemen off the board in IDP leagues as he attempts to build off his 12.5 sacks last year.

Saints exercised RE Cameron Jordan's fifth-year club option for 2015.

It's a no-brainer move for New Orleans, which now has Jordan under control for $8.4 million over the next two seasons. A 2013 breakout player, Jordan graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 3-4 end, behind only J.J. Watt, Calais Campbell, and Kyle Williams. Only Watt received better pass-rush marks. Turning 25 in July, Jordan has 20.5 sacks and five forced fumbles the past two seasons.

Saints LE Cameron Jordan (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Jordan was limited in practice all week and will likely come down to a game-time decision. One of the best 3-4 ends in the NFL this season, Jordan is on pace for 46 tackles, 12 sacks, and four forced fumbles through eight games.

Saints LE Cameron Jordan thinks Rob Ryan's 3-4 defense "suits" him and says it will be a "great fit."

"The 3-4 is what I ran in college and it's something similar to we ran with coach Gregg Williams," Jordan said. "It's a blitzing, attacking system, which will be fun. I think it suits me. Without a doubt [Junior Galette and Martez Wilson] will be the most excited about the situation. As long as everybody is on the same page I can't see why this wouldn't be a great fit for us." Jordan recorded eight sacks in 2012, his second season out of Cal. Galette and Wilson are tentatively expected to man the outside linebacker, pass-rushing spots. The three of them will be pieces to build around.

Rookie DE Cam Jordan has started all three games this season.

Jordan has four solo tackles and three assists so far. Though he's yet to record a sack or forced fumble, he's credited with solid run defense. "I would say he's kind of in line with where we hoped he'd be," coach Sean Payton said. "He was a player we felt would play in the base as well as the nickel."
