Connor Barwin signs with Rams

The Los Angeles Rams signed former Philadelphia Eagles pass rusher Connor Barwin Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

After playing the last four seasons in Philadelphia, Barwin signed with the Rams Thursday. In Los Angeles, the 30-year-old pass rusher is reuniting with defensive coordinator, Wade Phillips, with whom he played for during their tenure together with the Texans. Although Barwin's production has regressed through the years, he should fit well in Phillips' highly successful system.

Connor Barwin will be released by the Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have released pass-rusher Connor Barwin.

Fantasy Impact

This is big news in Philly as Barwin has been a foundation for them to build on. Depending on where Barwin goes will have an impact on his fantasy IDP value. If he ends up playing in the right system, Barwin should be able t0 maintain his value as a sack producing DE/LB. Barwin finished 2016 with 34 tackles, five sacks, and one forced fumble.

Connor Barwin records 6 tackles against Tampa Bay

With the Eagles defense getting exposed on Sunday in a humiliating 45-17 home loss to Tampa Bay there was little to take from the game. Connor Barwin did have 6 tackles on the day with 1 TFL, and 2 pass defensed, and 2 QB hits. Although the numbers may look alright on paper the team was just going through the motions on defense in a brutal team loss.

Fantasy Impact

Barwin has never been much of an IDP option throughout his career and this 6 tackle performance was his highest on the season. He has just 3.5 sacks on the season as well and does not offer enough consistency to make him a reliable IDP option.

No excuses for loss from Connor Barwin

"It's about being consistent for 60 minutes and following our assignments and being sound," linebacker Connor Barwin said. "Third downs killed us here. We have to find a way to get off the field. It's not about fatigue or anything like that. They made the plays and we didn't and we're sitting here with a loss. It feels lousy. We have to find a way to turn it around."

Fantasy Impact

Barwin had a solo and an assisted tackle in the Week 4 loss. Prior to this game he was riding a two game sack streak and will now have to look to get back on track against the Saints in Week 5.

Connor Barwin looking to build on career year

Barwin is very optimistic on the Eagles 2015 season "I think Chip brought in a lot of smart guys, a lot of football guys - high-character guys," Barwin said. "I think everybody has kind of jelled in the locker room very quickly. A number of the guys who signed in free agency were here right away."

Fantasy Impact

Barwin is coming off a career year in 2014 as he appeared in all 16 regular season games and recorded 14.5 sacks to go along with 47 tackles and 2 forced fumbles. He is a nice option as a depth player in IDP leagues that reward points for big plays such as sacks and turnovers.
