Detroit Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah is expected to return to Detroit on Monday and sign his franchise tag. That will net him $17.143 million dollars, and the team could work on a longer term deal with him as well. Ansah posted 12 sacks last season and is one of the leaders of a suddenly strong Lions defense. He will help the Lions keep some fantasy relevance as a defense next year, and is a solid option in IDP formats as well.
The Detroit Lions have franchise tagged defensive end Ziggy Ansah. The franchise tag was long rumored for the five-year veteran and 2015 Pro Bowler. Ansah started 14 games last year and led the team with 12 sacks, his second career season with 10 or more sacks. Ansah is a huge part of Detroit's defense, and his presence will help keep them as a streaming defense option heading into next season.
Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (back) is officially out for Sunday's game against the Bears. Ansah has four sacks on the season and his absence will diminish the Lions' already weak pass rush. However, they are still a strong defense to play against a weak Bears offense and rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
