Darius Leonard has 14 tackles as Colts fail to advance

Colts linebacker Darius Leonard recorded a team-high 14 tackles (10 solo) with one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in Saturday’s 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

The Colts season is over but it was a strong year for their rookie second-rounder. Leonard finished the regular season with a league-leading 163 tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, and two interceptions in 15 games. He added 27 total tackles in two playoff games. It would be a shock if he doesn’t take home defensive rookie of the year honors.

Darius Leonard returns to full practice Wednesday

Colts linebacker Darius Leonard (shoulder/ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice after being listed as limited Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Leonard was never in danger of missing Saturday’s playoff game against the Chiefs. Nevertheless, it was still good to see him return to Wednesday’s practice which was held outside in the snow as the team prepares for the cold temperatures at Arrowhead Stadium. Leonard led the Colts in tackles in last week’s 21-7 wild card win over the Texans and will need another strong performance if they are to knock off the high-powered Chiefs.

Darius Leonard makes All-Pro team weeks after Pro Bowl snub

Colts rookie linebacker Darius Leonard was named first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press Friday.

Fantasy Impact

The honor comes just weeks after Leonard failed to make the Pro Bowl, causing outrage around the league. Leonard himself said he was “heartbroken” over the snub. The second-rounder joins first round pick and teammate left guard Quenton Nelson on the team. They make the first pair of rookie teammates to be selected first-team All-Pro since 1965 when a pair of Bears legends Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers did it.

Darius Leonard named defensive player of the week

Colts linebacker Darius Leonard was named AFC defensive player of the week for his performance in Sunday’s game against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Leonard led the team with eight tackles (four solo) with one interception and two passes defensed in Sunday night’s playoff-clinching 33-17 victory. The second-rounder is a favorite to take home defensive rookie of the year honors for his performance this season. He finished the regular season with a league-leading 163 tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, and two interceptions in 15 games. The Colts will see the Texans on Wild Card weekend.
