Eli Apple repeatedly targeted by Dallas in Week 13 loss.

Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott repeatedly seemed to "pick on" New Orleans cornerback Eli Apple with success in the first half of this contest. To show for it Prescott completed more pass attempts than Apple did tackles. He ended up with six combined as Prescott went on to complete 24 of 28 attempts. New Orleans had made a trade for Apple around the deadline and it certainly may be one the would like to have back at this point.

Fantasy Impact

In most cases, as teams have preferred to go after Apple over Marshon Lattimore, Apple has managed to rack up some decent IDP production. In this contest, it was Lattimore topping the secondary stats with nine solos and one assisted, possibly in clean-up duty as Apple struggled. In general, the trend keeps Apple on the IDP radar for owners needing to insert cornerbacks in their lineups. To note safety Vonn Bell slotted in third with 1 solo and five assists with one for a loss. Bell did have a costly penalty on Dak Prescott in the second half, but of course, that did not affect his IDP production.

Eli Apple tested often in depute versus Minnesota

Newly acquired cornerback Eli Apple was put to the test Sunday night versus the Minnesota Vikings often. Apple wasn't actually that impressive as he recorded nine combined tackles, but no passes defended or interceptions.

Fantasy Impact

For his IDP owners, they have to be happy Minnesota didn't shy away from Apple. For New Orlean Saints fans they have to hope it was just nerves for his depute with the team and he'll fine-tune his play on the field going forward.

Eli Apple to start over Ken Crawley after trade to Saints

Eli Apple will start the New Orleans Saints' Week 8 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings over incumbent starter Ken Crawley.

Fantasy Impact

Apple will play right away, as Crawley will apparently be inactive because he doesn't play the slot or special teams.

Eli Apple headed to Saints in trade

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple is being traded to the New Orleans Saints for a 2019 4th-round pick and a 2020 7th-round pick.

Fantasy Impact

With the Giants sitting at 1-6 through the first seven weeks and looking at a rebuild, this might not be the last trade they make. Apple left Monday's game against the Falcons with an ankle injury, so keep an eye on his physical once he gets to New Orleans. A former first-round pick who is still just 23 years old, Apple never lived up to his draft potential in New York and will now hope to help a contending Saints team fix their secondary woes.

Eli Apple better than the numbers in Giant win

Eli Apple had only one tackle and one assist in the Giants 10-7 victory vs. Dallas on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Apple is a big part of a Giants secondary that is playing with a lot of confidence. His numbers don't warrant IDP consideration, but he is one of the players that make the Giants D/ST worthy of a roster spot.
