DE - WAS
Week 3 Outlook
The Washington Football Team is placing DE Matt Ioannidis on season-ending IR with a torn bicep.
Ioannidis heads to IR after recording 1.5 sacks and two tackles for loss this season. In a subsequent move, DE Nate Orchard was signed to the active roster.
Matt Ioannidis ended Sunday’s 20-15 loss to the Packers with three solo tackles and one sack.
Ioannidis should be owned in leagues that require a DE/DL roster spot. He has a team-high 8.5 sacks through Week 14 and should have a great chance to add more in the final few games.
Matt Ioannidis finished Sunday’s win over Carolina with three total tackles and two sacks.
Ioannidis should be own across all deeper IDP leagues and started in formats that require a DE roster spot. He leads all Redskins with 7.5 sacks through Week 13.
Matt Ioannidis finished Sunday’s loss to the Bills with four solo tackles and a sack.
Ioannidis has been impressive this season racking up 44 total tackles and 4.5 sacks through Week 9. In deeper leagues or leagues that require playing a DL roster spot, he is worth owning and possibly starting.
Redskins defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis injured his knee in the team’s preseason opener against New England. ESPN’s John Keim is reporting Ioannidis avoided serious injury and will be ready for Week 1.
Ioannidis was playing well before having his leg rolled up on by an offensive lineman. He recorded three tackles and one sack of Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer. Ioannidis played in 14 games (10 starts) in 2017, recording 27 tackles and 4.5 sacks. Entering his third season, the 2016 fifth-rounder is expected to play a key role along the defensive line in 2018.
