Craig Robertson Fantasy Football News 2020

Saints LBs Craig Robertson (shoulder) and Dannell Ellerbe (foot) are active for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Both have played through "questionable" tags in multiple weeks and are OK for normal use but low-floor IDP options.

Saints LB Dannell Ellerbe (foot) and LB Craig Robertson (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Buccaneers. Both entered the weekend questionable but should be fine to use if you had planned to do so.

Saints LB Craig Robertson (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He's fine to get back into IDP lineups after a game away.

Saints LB Craig Robertson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. We'll check on his status Sunday.

The Saints have ruled OLB Dannell Ellerbe (quad) out for the 4th straight game. That means Craig Robertson will start once again in his place. Robertson enters Week 4 tied for 3rd in the league in tackles and remains in starter territory in our IDP rankings this week.

The Saints list S Kenny Vaccaro (ankle), MLB James Laurinaitis (quad) and OLB Dannell Ellerbe (quad) as questionable for Sunday's game in San Diego. According to ESPN's Mike Triplett, Vaccaro has expressed confidence that he'll play after missing Week 3. Laurinaitis was added to the injury report this week and hasn't spoken to reporters since. Ellerbe just returned to practice this week after missing the 1st 3 games. If he remains out of the lineup, Craig Robertson would start in his place again. Should Ellerbe return, IDP owners might want to wait and see him get through a game before using him. Robertson has delivered strong numbers to date, though, indicating the upside in the position.

The Browns will get LB Karlos Dansby back today against the Panthers after he missed the past 4 games with a knee sprain. It 's tough to know whether the Browns will return him to his full role, though, or whether Dansby's knee will hold up. That makes him a risky IDP play, albeit one with upside. His return also makes it tough to use replacement Craig Robertson, who has delivered strong fantasy numbers in Dansby's absence. Cleveland will be without CB Joe Haden, who's inactive with a shoulder injury.

UPDATE: Dansby will reportedly start in his usual MLB spot, with Robertson starting at weak ILB over Chris Kirksey. We'd lean Robertson as the safest IDP option, with Dansby bringing the highest ceiling.

Browns LB Karlos Dansby has seemed to be near a return from his sprained knee for 2 weeks now, but he admitted to ESPN Cleveland on Thursday that he might not play again this season. The veteran said "it's all up in the air" as to whether the team will shut him down for the year. "It's a tough injury, especially at my position, all the lateral movements and that kind of stuff," Dansby said. "It's detrimental. I can't go out there and put some bad film out there and let the guys down in this room." Barring some huge turn in his recovery by Sunday, it looks like you can plan to use Craig Robertson in your IDP lineup once again. Dansby's fill-in has delivered top-10 production among LBs since the starter went down.

Browns LB Karlos Dansby is inactive once again for today's game against the Bengals. He has reportedly been nearing a return the past 2 weeks but still isn't ready to play on his sprained knee. That keeps LB Craig Robertson in place as a high-upside IDP option.

Browns LB Karlos Dansby is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. After missing the past 3 games with a knee sprain, Dansby put in limited practices this week and seems like a game-time decision. "We'll see how I feel," he told the team website Friday. "Practice went great today. I did some things. I'm very, very hopeful." The knee situation still adds risk to Dansby, but he also carries plenty of IDP upside. Consider him and Craig Robertson to be the same player in our Week 15 LB rankings. If Dansby starts, he shoves Robertson out of the top-20 slot and back into a part-time role.

Browns LB Karlos Dansby is inactive for the 3rd straight game because of a sprained knee. He had seemed to be on track to play but will instead give way once again to Craig Robertson, who makes for a solid LB3 play in a positive matchup with the Colts. Missing Dansby certainly won't help an already shaky Browns run D.

Browns ILB Craig Robertson (knee) is active today and expected to play against the Patriots.  He put in limited practices all week, though, after missing the past 2 games.  Robertson makes for a risky IDP option at best.
Browns ILB Craig Robertson (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game at New England after missing the past 2 contests.  He has practiced since Wednesday, though, and appears likely to return in at least some capacity.  Don't look to him for much fantasy football value in your IDP league, however.  New England presents a positive matchup, but we just can't trust Robertson's health or role.
Browns LB Craig Robertson (knee) is inactive today against the Steelers.  Tank Carder will start in his place.  LB D'Qwell Jackson is the only IDP-worthy guy inside for Cleveland, though.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that 2nd-year man Craig Robertson continues to lead the competition to start at ILB next to D'Qwell Jackson.  It also reports that even Robertson "did not make a strong case for himself this spring" in the Browns' new 3-4 scheme under DC Ray Horton.  Robertson is competing with Tank Carder, L.J. Fort and perhaps James-Michael Johnson.  The fact that none has impressed could lead to some kind of rotation, though Horton stuck with the average Paris Lenon at that spot in his Arizona D.  The whole situation helps to remind that Jackson is the star here and could easily challenge for the league tackle lead once again.  Target him in your 2013 IDP fantasy football draft.
