Marshon Lattimore adds his first pick on Sunday

Marshon Lattimore racked up three total tackles and a interception during Sunday’s 13-6 win against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Lattimore currently sits fourth on the team in total tackles (31) through Week 6. In deeper leagues, he is worth rostering, but if Lattimore is available he should be picked up prior to Week 11 when the Saints play the Buccaneers.

Marshon Lattimore tops list of productive players in Week 11 win

New Orleans cornerback Marshon Lattimore recorded his first interception of the season and led the defense with four total tackles and an additional two passes defended in the win over Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact

Any IDP owner who had Lattimore might have been pleased this contest. As for the rest of the IDP players that are available on New Orleans, the fact that a cornerback led the team with such numbers has to be disappointing. With the defense holding Philadelphia to one score we should chalk this one up to game flow.

Marshon Lattimore has observation for defense first half

Sean Payton was not happy with the team's defensive performance in the first half of the first preseason contest. Marshon Lattimore stated the defense is adjusting to having new players in the lineup, including veteran defensive backs Kurt Coleman and Patrick Robinson. It also wasn't helping that the unit played without top defensive ends Cameron Jordan and Alex Okafor.

Fantasy Impact

Lattimore makes a valid point and IDP owners should not worry at this point and time that he or any of the other IDP players mentioned won't be able to come through for their fantasy owners when the season is underway. If there is one concern it may be that Lattimore makes that leap into a shutdown cornerback which will hamper his production for IDP if team's start scheming away from his location on the field. And as for now, the reports are that he is very well on his way to becoming a top cornerback in the league.

Marshon Lattimore going to Pro-Bowl as a rookie

Marshon Lattimore will be heading to the Pro-Bowl despite missing multiple contests this season. When on the field he has flashed all the tangibles to warrant the invite. New Orleans hit a gem as the 11th overall pick has been a big part of turning a woeful defense around. Thier fans should be excited about Lattimore for years to come.

Fantasy Impact

This actually may be more exciting for the New Orlean's fans than it is for his fantasy IDP owners going forward. Making it to the Pro-Bowl his rookie season and showing such skills on the field may lead to him becoming a shutdown corner as soon as next season. In most cases, shutdown corners are avoided by quarterbacks and lead to low fantasy production for IDP purposes. If he is to become the next Richard Sherman or Patrick Peterson IDP owners may find themselves shopping for a new cornerback for fantasy leagues.

Marshon Lattimore struggles with conditioning in return Thursday night

Lattimore had missed some time with an ankle injury that cost him being in game shape versus Atlanta. He spent much of the second half on the sidelines receiving oxygen and missing out on defensive snaps. He was tasked to cover Julio Jones the entire contest and it was clear that he was struggling to do so by being a little out of shape. He did record an interception on a poorly thrown ball meant to Jones by Matt Ryan, but he didn't actually shut Jones down in this contest that New Orleans loss. Lattimore also added three combined tackles and a nice pass breakup.

Fantasy Impact

Lattimore was put to the test versus Jones and for the most part, showed some shutdown abilities that he has been displaying before. Lattimore will have a chance to get back into game shape and display more of those traits in Week 15. When he does he will not be a suggested IDP play. Quarterbacks avoid shutdown cornerbacks unless your throwing to a Julio Jones type.
