DE - NO
The New Orleans Saints have exercised Marcus Davenport’s fifth-year option, according to Nick Underhill.
Davenport's option being picked up affords the defensive lineman two more years in the Saints' system to "show what he can do," according to Nick Underhill. Davenport was the 20th-best edge defender last season, according to Pro Football Focus' grading system. He totaled 12 tackles, 1.5 sacks, eight QB hits, and two passes defensed in 11 games last season.
Saints DE Marcus Davenport has officially ruled out for Week 13 with a concussion.
Although he doesn't have the stat line to prove it, Davenport is a constant disrupter for the Saints' DL. Fantasy managers are still rolling out a Saints D/ST that has been darn-right nasty after a slow start to the season.
New Orleans Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport is active for Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Davenport should be inserted right back into the starting lineup for his season debut, sending the effective Trey Hendrickson back to a reserve role. The Saints would do well do have Hendrickson on the field with both Davenport and Cameron Jordan. it remains to be seen how creative they will get in getting three of their top pass rushers on the field at the same time. Davenport is just a DL3 option despite the plus matchup.
DE Marcus Davenport (elbow) will not play Monday’s contest against the Raiders.
Davenport hasn’t practice in over two weeks due to an elbow injury. He will need more time to recover and has been ruled out Week 2. Look for Trey Hendrickson to start in his place.
Marcus Davenport racked up four solo tackles, two sacks, and two forced fumbles during Thursday’s win over the Falcons.
Davenport has 30 tackles, six sacks, and three forced fumbles through Week 13. He should be viewed as a deeper IDP target only.
