Saints Defense Expected To Have Sheldon Rankins

New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins (Achilles) is expected to make his season debut on Sunday night against the Cowboys, barring a setback. Rankins was a force inside for the Saints in 2018, registering 41 total tackles, eight sacks and one forced fumble in a full season. His return will be a big boost to New Orleans' defense in the trenches and is a slight downgrade for Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. Still, the Saints Defense should be ignored on Sunday night in fantasy in what could be a high-scoring game in the Superdome.

Sheldon Rankins Returning

New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins (Achilles) is expected to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday. Rankins is a very good interior lineman, but he's not an option in individual defensive player leagues. His impact, though, would strengthen the Saints defensive team profoundly. He stuffs the middle and allows edge rushers like Cameron Jordan more freedom on the outside to pursue sacks. The Saints defensive team is a mid-to-low option in fantasy.

Saints Pick Up Sheldon Rankins' Option

The New Orleans Saints picked up the fifth-year option on defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins on Wednesday, according to a source. Rankins is one of the best young defensive linemen in the league but will be an option to start on the Physically Unable to Perform list this year while recovering from an Achilles injury suffered in 2018. The 25-year-old had a career-high 41 tackles and eight sacks while also adding a forced fumble in his full season with the Saints in 2018.
