Robertson had three tackles (one solo) in Sunday's win against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Robertson again played every defensive snap for New Orleans but his production lagged. In fact, the starting outside linebacker has notched just seven total tackles in his last two games combined. Robertson recorded a career-high 115 tackles last year and has flashed in some big performance this season (11 tackles in Week 6 against the Lions), so his recent dip in production is difficult to explain. Fantasy owners should probably just hold tight and hope for a rebound performance in Week 12 against the Rams.

Robertson had six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's win against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

The linebacker again played every defensive snap for New Orleans, posting another productive performance. With rookie linebacker Alex Anzalone out for the season, Robertson should continue to be a solid source of tackles for IDP owners.

Robertson had 11 tackles (four solo), a sack, a pass defense, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in Sunday's win against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Like many on the Saints defense, Robertson had a huge statistical day against the Lions. On one second-quarter play, Robertson completed the coveted defensive hat trick, recovering his own forced fumble on a sack of quarterback Matthew Stafford. Even though he led the Saints in tackles last season, Robertson's playing time had taken a huge hit with the defense skewing younger this year. However, with rookie linebacker Alex Anzalone suffering a season-ending injury last week, Robertson has seen a huge increase in snaps the last two games. While the veteran linebacker isn't likely to force a ton of turnovers or post huge sack totals, Robertson is a sideline-to-sideline tackler that is now worth owning in many IDP leagues.

Robertson had 115 tackles (71 solo), one sack, one interception, and two fumble recoveries in 15 games in 2016.

EDGE Analysis

In his first season in New Orleans, Robertson surprisingly led the Saints in tackles, starting at outside linebacker to start the year while Dannell Ellerbe was hurt and later at middle linebacker when James Laurinaitis succumbed to injury. Robertson's production waned at the end of the season, perhaps as a result of a nagging shoulder injury, but the versatile linebacker is under contract for the next two seasons and should compete for a starting role in 2017.

Robertson (shoulder) is active for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Robertson will be able to give it a go Saturday after logging a practice late in the week. He played close to a full complement of snaps in Week 15 against the Cardinals, racking up four tackles in the contest.

Robertson (shoulder) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Robertson's shoulder injury landed him on the injury report in Week 15 but he was ultimately able to play against the Cardinals. The fact that he was able to log a practice Friday suggests that he'll likely be able to play through the injury once again Saturday. He was able to rack up four tackles in 59 snaps against the Cardinals.

Robertson (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game at Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Before a shoulder injury sidelined him in Week 14, Robertson earned 100 percent of the defensive snaps in 10 of 12 contests and didn't fall below 90 percent in the other two. Now active again, he should handle most of the reps at weakside linebacker, which could reap rewards against the Cardinals' balanced offense.

EDGE Analysis

Robertson was sidelined for Week 14's loss to the Buccaneers due to his shoulder injury. If he cannot go again Sunday, his absence will primarily be felt on special teams. Also, Nathan Stupar could see an increased role providing depth at outside linebacker.
