News: The Colts lost two players to season-ending knee injuries -- linebacker A.J. Edds and offensive lineman Ben Ijalana -- in their opening training camp practice. "Obviously they're done for the year which is really sad," coach Chuck Pagano said. "You hate to lose anybody in camp or at any time during the season especially Ben. The guy came back, had a significant knee injury (last season), same knee, two hip surgeries, busted his rear to get healthy and get back and then unfortunately something like this happens. A.J., the same thing, all the hard work and time and preparation these guys have put in and then to come out here and in basically a non-contact drill and it happens."
Analysis: Edds wasn't expected to make an impact in Fantasy this season anyway.
News: Colts LB A.J. Edds left Thursday's game versus the Texans with an ankle injury and did not return to the contest. He did not record a tackle in the contest.
Analysis: Edds has been used mostly as a backup for the Colts, so he doesn't carry much Fantasy value in IDP formats. He can be ignored at this time.
News: Indianapolis LB A.J. Edds finished with a career-high eight tackles during the Colts' 31-24 loss to New England in Week 13. Edds entered Sunday's game in the first quarter after starting LB Pat Angerer left with an injury. His eight tackles doubled his season output (four).
Analysis: Edds filled in admirably for Angerer, who entered Week 13 as the NFL's leading tackler. The 24-year-old has bounced around the NFL and was with the Patriots earlier this season. Fantasy owners in IDP formats should not consider him a worthwhile option unless Angerer misses more time.
News: Colts LB A.J. Edds (concussion) left the Bengals game in the third quarter after a jarring block by Cincinnati's Cedric Peerman on a punt return. Edds was taken to the Colts' locker room for further evaluation and did not return. There were no updates about his condition on Monday.
Analysis: Edds will provide depth at linebacker for Indy, but he is not expected to make a Fantasy impact. Leave him on waivers in all formats.
News: Colts LB A.J. Edds left the game in the third quarter Week 6 against the Bengals and was evaluated for a possible concussion.
Analysis: Edds is merely a backup linebacker and mostly plays on special teams. He has no Fantasy value when healthy.
News: The Colts signed A.J. Edds on Wednesday after putting LB Gary Brackett on injured reserve.
Analysis: Edds will provide depth at linebacker for Indy, but he is not expected to make a Fantasy impact so leave him on waivers.
News: The Patriots announced on Thursday that they signed LB Jeff Tarpinian from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. LB A.J. Edds was released to take his place and rookie DB Josh Victorian was added to the practice squad.
Analysis: Edds, a former fourth-round draft pick, was not in line for much playing time while on the roster. He is not a player that should be on anybody's radar in Fantasy.
News: The Patriots claimed LB A.J. Edds off waivers from the Dolphins.
Analysis: Edds missed his entire rookie season in 2010 with a knee injury. He then came back to have a strong preseason in 2011, but it still wasn't good enough to make the Dolphins roster. Edds will add depth to the Patriots linebackers corps, but ignore him in Fantasy until further notice.
News: On Monday, free agent tight end end Dante Rosario signed with the Dolphins, and the team released LB A.J. Edds to make room for the move. Edds was a fourth-round draft pick last year, and he missed the entire season with a knee injury.
Analysis: The move to release Edds came as a bit of a surprise considering he made several plays in the preseason and led the team in tackles. Still, Fantasy owners should not have had him on the radar had he remained on the team. Keep an eye on where Edds ends up, though he is not worth a roster spot.
News: Dolphins rookie LB A.J. Edds has suffered a torn ACL and will be out for the 2010 season, coach Tony Sparano said Tuesday. Sparano said he will be missed. "Well, he did a good job," Sparano said. "Obviously, there's a lot of football left out here, but A.J. looks like he had some really good promise and the ability to do some good jobs. So, we'll get him healthy and we'll get going."
Analysis: Edds had minimal Fantasy value in his rookie year, so hopefully he can return in 2011 at 100 percent. Keep an eye on his recovery, but ignore him in all leagues in 2010.
News: The Dolphins signed LB A.J. Edds, the team announced Thursday. The 6-3, 246-pound Edds was the team's fourth-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was a four-year letterman and three-year starter at Iowa and finished his collegiate career with 226 tackles (76 solo), seven interceptions and 2.5 sacks.
Analysis: Edds will be a role player on defense for the Dolphins and see time on special teams. He is not worth drafting in the majority of IDP leagues this season.
News: The Dolphins drafted LB A.J. Edds in the fourth round of the NFL Draft at No. 119 overall. Edds, at 6-foot-3, 246 pounds, played at Iowa. He will compete for playing time at inside linebacker for the Dolphins.
Analysis: Edds will likely see the field plenty for the Dolphins, who need help on defense and brought in new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. He has minimal Fantasy value and is not worth drafting in the majority of IDP leagues.
