Ellerbe made five tackles (all solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe made his season debut in Week 8 and has played in only five games this year. Yet, the oft-injured linebacker has now recorded a sack in four straight games and is up to 26 tackles (more than five per game) on the season. Although the sacks may eventually dry up -- he had only 6.5 sacks in his career prior to this year -- now healthy, Ellerbe should be owned in nearly all IDP leagues.

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.
