News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh got to the quarterback for the second game in a row Saturday against the Falcons in Week 16. He recorded 0.5 sacks, while racking up four tackles -- one solo -- in a 31-18 loss.
Analysis: Suh has stepped up his performance this season, as he has 34 tackles and 7.0 sacks on the season. With one game left, he is almost certainly going to finish with his best totals since his rookie season in 2010. At this time, Fantasy owners should consider him a decent Fantasy IDP option in deeper formats.
News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh registered three tackles and a sack during Detroit's 38-10 loss to Arizona in Week 15. Suh produced the team's only takedown of Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley to give him 6.5 total sacks on the season.
Analysis: Suh remains an unsteady option for the Lions as he is prone to disappearing acts in an opponent's backfield on a weekly basis. He is still unlikely to match his sack total from his rookie season (10) this year and should be viewed as a decent option in deeper Fantasy IDP formats.
News: Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh played well Sunday against the Colts in Week 13. Suh had six tackles, including five solo, and finished with a sack and one pass defensed.
Analysis: Suh continues to play well and is one of the few defensive tackles worth using in most IDP leagues because of his ability to make plays. Plan on starting Suh in most formats in Week 14 at Green Bay.
News: The NFL announced Monday Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh will not be suspended for his actions during a Week 12 game against the Texans. However, he still might face a potential fine.
Analysis: Suh has just 20 tackles and four sacks in 11 games this season. After his breakout rookie season, teams have put more focus on slowing him down because he is such a force up front. Suh is still a solid NFL lineman, but he isn't as valuable in Fantasy because of his lack of stats. Suh is a name, but he is just a low-end Fantasy option in IDP leagues.
News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh was a full participant in practice for the second day in a row Wednesday leading up to Thursday's matchup against the Texans. Suh, who is dealing with a knee injury, is listed as probable for Week 12.
Analysis: Suh is coming off one of his best games of the season, with five tackles against the Packers in Week 11. It seems as if he's still ready and was never in danger of missing Thursday's game even on short week's rest. He has 20 tackles this season, including 4.5 sacks thus far and should be solid option in deeper formats heading into Week 12.
News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh had a season-high five tackles in Week 11 against the Packers. However, he failed to record a sack, or any other statistics of consequence, in a 24-20 loss.
Analysis: If Suh is not getting to the quarterback, it is difficult to rely on him in Fantasy IDP formats. He has 4.5 sacks this season and 8.5 over his last 24 games, so Fantasy owners should continue to consider him more of an option in deeper formats.
News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh didn't appear in the box score Week 9 at Jacksonville because he didn't record a single tackle. He has yet to record more than two in a game this season.
Analysis: Suh does have 3 1/2 sacks on the season, but in weeks when doesn't record a sack, he's a lost cause in Fantasy. Frankly, he might be over-owned in Fantasy IDP leagues. Unless sacks are worth huge points in your league, you might want to scope the waiver wire for alternatives.
News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh recorded two tackles in Sunday's 28-24 win over Seattle. He now has 13 on the season.
Analysis: Suh's value lies more in sacks than tackles, and he has just 3 1/2 sacks so far this season. His career-high is 10 sacks, in his rookie year (2010), and the number dropped to four last year. While Suh has a ton of talent, he's been unable to produce sacks the last two years, and is slipping to mid-level IDP status. He faces the Jags in Week 9.
News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, who recorded a sack in each of his first two games, went without Week 3 against the Lions. He had just two tackles, both solo.
Analysis: Therein lies Suh's shortcoming as a Fantasy option. When he doesn't get a sack, he doesn't have anything to fall back on. If sacks are important to you, he can still be a useful Fantasy IDP option, but if you'd prefer more tackles, you should look elsewhere.
News: Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh has now opened the season with a sack in consecutive games for the first time since his rookie season, as he recorded 1.5 sacks in a 27-19 loss to the 49ers. Suh finished the game with three tackles -- two solo -- while also hitting the quarterback three times.
Analysis: Suh took a step back last season, finishing with just 4.0 sacks, so he is already almost halfway there after just two games. He looks primed for another big season, so Fantasy owners should continue to consider him a strong starting Fantasy IDP option.
News: Detroit defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh recorded two tackles and a sack during the Lions' 27-23 victory over St. Louis in Week 1. Suh, whose two tackles went for a loss, was one of three players to record a sack on Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
Analysis: Suh is looking to move past a trying 2011 campaign in which he played just 14 games as a result of a suspension. If he can return to his rookie form (66 tackles and 10 sacks), Suh would quickly elevate into high-end status in the majority of Fantasy IDP formats. He's off to a good start.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh made his return from a two-game suspension in Week 15 and was relatively quiet for almost 60 minutes, until he blocked a potential game-tying 65-yard field goal attempt in the games waning moments to preserve a 28-27 Lions victory over the Raiders. He added just two tackles otherwise.
Analysis: Suh has been disappointing this season for Fantasy owners, as his real-life impact hasnt translated to a Fantasy impact, since he has just three sacks and 33 tackles on the season. Hes a low-end Fantasy DL in IDP formats.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suhs two-game suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct ended Monday. Coach Jim Schwartz met with Suh, and doesnt expect him to repeat the actions that led to the suspension. (Suh) wants to do anything he can to do help the team, Schwartz said. I would be surprised if something like that happened again.
Analysis: Suh has been fined numerous times by the league already and his suspension shows that commissioner Roger Goodell will likely take a hard stance with him going forward. While he has been a menace on the defensive line for the Lions this season, his three sacks and 31 tackles does not make him the most valuable option in Fantasy. Consider Suh a low-end Fantasy DL in IDP formats when he returns in Week 15 against the Raiders.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh, who learned on Friday that the appeal of his two-game suspension has been denied, got into an early-morning car accident on Saturday, reports the Oregonian. Suh was driving in Portland, Ore., and lost control of his vehicle, hitting a light pole, water fountain and tree. Officers said Suh was not impaired and was not injured in the crash. Suh received a suspension after stomping on the arm of Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving. The suspension begins Week 13 against the Saints.
Analysis: This could just be a case of horrible timing for Suh and isn't going to take away his ability to play football -- like a two-game suspension. That is all Fantasy owners need to worry about. Suh has come under fire in his year and a half in the NFL due to his style of play. More suspensions could be on the way if he does not dial it down so keep an eye on the situation going forward. He has 31 tackles with three sacks on the year but owners in IDP formats should plan on leaving him reserved for the next two weeks.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh learned on Friday that the appeal of his two-game suspension has been denied. He will begin serving it in Week 13 against the Saints. Suh received the suspension after stomping on the arm of Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith a week ago.
Analysis: Suh has earned numerous suspensions in his year and a half in the NFL and will now lose two games due to his actions. More suspensions could be on the way if he does not dial down his play so keep an eye on the situation going forward. He has 31 tackles with three sacks on the year but owners in IDP formats should plan on leaving him reserved for the next two weeks.
News: Detroit DL Ndamukong Suh was suspended by NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell on Tuesday for two games without pay for stomping on Green Bay OL Evan Dietrich-Smith during the teams' Week 12 meeting on Thanksgiving. Suh, who has garnered national attention for the incident, is the second player to receive a punishment of more than one game since Goodell began his tenure. Suh said he will appeal the suspension.
Analysis: Suh posted an apology for his action on his Facebook page last Friday before reportedly calling Goodell on Sunday night to apologize for his behavior. It seems likely that Suh only apologized to mitigate the danger of a multiple-game suspension. In only his second season, Suh has earned the distinction as one of the NFL's dirtiest players despite his tremendous talent. Fantasy owners in IDP formats should seek other options for the upcoming weeks as the suspension is likely to stand since this is not his first reckless action.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh is expected to be suspended at least two games for his actions in Week 12 against the Packers, reports ESPN.com. Suh got into an altercation with Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and appeared to stomp on his arm. According to the report, Suh could be looking at more than two games and the league could also require him to take anger management classes.
Analysis: Apparently Suh is looking at a minimum of two games for his actions, but it could end up being longer. He will surely be looking at a hefty fine from the league and team as well, although nothing official has been announced as of yet. The final verdict could come as early as Monday, so Fantasy owners should continue and monitor the situation moving forward. While a suspension to Suh would be a huge loss to Detroit's DST, the 24-year-old should only be considered a low-end Fantasy DL, when healthy and not in trouble.
News: After hurting his team with a penalty and ejection during a 27-15 loss to Green Bay in Week 12, Detroit DL Ndamukong Suh said he has learned his lesson. My reaction on Thursday was unacceptable, he said in a statement on his Facebook page Friday. I made a mistake, and have learned from it. I hope to direct the focus back to the task at hand -- by winning. The statement appeared on Suhs page around the same time he was publically chastised by the Lions, one night after being ejected Thursday for stomping at an opposing player.
Analysis: It could be several days before Suh finds out the true cost of his third-quarter stomp. An NFL spokesman said Friday that plays from Week 12 looked at for potential discipline wont be reviewed until all games are completed. Detroit coach Jim Schwartz was curt after Thursdays defeat when asked if he was worried about a possible suspension. Im worried about losing this game, he said. Fantasy owners should expect a possible suspension for the star second-year defensive tackle as this is not the first time he's found trouble.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh was disqualified from the team's Thanksgiving Day game vs. the Packers for unsportsmanlike conduct after getting into a fight with a Packers offensive lineman. He had a solo tackle before leaving. I want to apologize to my teammates, my coaches and my true fans for allowing the refs to have an opportunity to take me out of this game, Suh said. What I did was remove myself from the situation the best way I felt, with me being held down.
Analysis: Suh has been called a dirty player and sure looked like it. To be fair, his legs were bent back during the play, but he didn't need to slam the lineman's head into the turf multiple times and kick his arm while he was down. Suh has the potential to be a game-changing defensive lineman and isn't a terrible Fantasy option. We'll see if he incurs a suspension with a fine for his actions.
News: Lions defensive coordinator Gunter Cunningham said Friday that tackle Ndamukong Suh might get some reps at defensive end Week 11 vs. Carolina.
Analysis: This might be a move to get Suh more involved in the pass rush since he hasn't been as effective in that regard this year. This is exactly what unhappy Fantasy owners want to hear and it could be the start of good things to come for Suh, who is more of a No. 2 or No. 3 Fantasy DL until he starts to get on track.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh recorded three tackles in Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Bears. He now has 27 tackles and three sacks on the year.
Analysis: Suh is a beast on the line for Detroit and makes a big impact in the running game. Even though he's not producing as good numbers as he did last year, Suh's ability to get to the quarterback continues to keep him relevant in most IDP formats. Owners should keep viewing him as a viable DL option next weekend.
News: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday that DL Ndamukong Suh has changed his play to better conform to NFL rules: (During Tuesdays meeting), we reviewed video showing that Ndamukong has clearly made the adjustments to play consistently within the rules so that he can continue to help the team, Goodell said. Suh requested the meeting to gain a better understanding of NFL rules and policies.
Analysis: Suh has quickly earned the reputation of a dirty player, but it appears he is trying to shed that label. He has already been fined a few times this season, but has stated that he will not change his intensity. While Suh continues to play at a high level, his statistical performance has severely dropped in 2011. Still, his ability to get to the quarterback continues to keep him relevant in most IDP formats. Leave him active heading into Week 10 against the Bears.
News: The Lions confirmed that DT Ndamukong Suh will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and a group of NFL executives Tuesday. Suh isnt currently subject to a disciplinary review by the league. The NFL issued a statement saying that Suh requested the meeting to gain a better understanding of NFL rules and policies.
Analysis: Suh has quickly earned the reputation of a dirty player, but it appears he is trying to shed that label. He has already been fined a few times this season, but has stated that he will not change his playing style. While Suh continues to play at a high level, his statistical performance has severely dropped in 2011. Still, his ability to get to the quarterback continues to keep him relevant in most IDP formats. Leave him active heading into Week 10 against the Bears.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh totaled one solo tackle Week 8 at Denver. It was the fifth time this season he failed to record a sack.
Analysis: Suh had 66 tackles and 10 sacks as a rookie in 2010, but his statistical performance has severely dropped in 2011. Teams are paying more attention to him and are game planning away from Suh. He still has high-end Fantasy potential based on his status as an elite defensive lineman, but perhaps we are overvaluing him in IDP leagues since he is no longer filling up the stat sheet.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh tied a season high with five tackles in a Week 7 loss to the Falcons. He also recorded his first sack since Week 3 at the Vikings.
Analysis: Suh is not quite on the statistical pace he was on last season, but he is capable of games like this or better in any given week. Owners should keep him active in most IDP formats.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh made just two tackles in a Week 6 loss to the 49ers. He also failed to make a sack for the third straight week.
Analysis: Suh is behind his sacks and tackles pace from his rookie season, but he still has the potential to produce for owners in IDP leagues. He should be kept active in most IDP formats going forward.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh recorded four tackles in Week 5 against the Bears. All of his tackles were solo in the 24-13 win.
Analysis: Suh continues to be a dominant force on defense for the Lions and looks well on his way to another productive campaign. Keep him and his two sacks active in the majority of Fantasy IDP formats going forward.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh managed three tackles in Week 4 at Dallas. After managing sacks in each of his two previous games, he was held without one against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Suh is typically not a good source for tackles, but he is a developing pass rusher with high-end upside. He should benefit from the pending return of Nick Fairley in that it could take some of the extra attention off him. He remains a quality play in IDP formats, regardless.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh got to Minnesota QB Donovan McNabb in the Week 3 overtime win at Minnesota. Suh sacked McNabb and finished with five tackles in the game.
Analysis: Suh keeps getting more production in terms of tackles each and every week and now has sacks in back-to-back contests for the Lions. Offenses are more certain to double-team the force week in, week out, -- but he remains a top-notch DL option in any IDP format. Fantasy owners should roll with Suh without hesitation for Week 4 at Dallas.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh was able to get to Chiefs QB Matt Cassel on the final play of the first half in the Week 2 game affair. He was able to notch three total tackles on the afternoon, including one for a loss. Suh hit the QB twice in the route.
Analysis: Suh had just one tackle last week, so he is progressing individually. Offenses are more certain to double-team the force week in, week out, -- but he remains a top-notch DL option in any IDP format. Fantasy owners should roll with Suh without hesitation.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh totaled one solo tackle and one quarterback hit in Week 1 against the Bucs.
Analysis: The Bucs didn't run the ball much in Week 1, so Suh didn't get many chances to make plays. The Bucs also made it a point to slow him down, and he is probably going to face a lot of double teams until Nick Fairley gets back onto the field. Suh is still a high-end Fantasy DL despite the down week.
News: Lions DT Ndamukong Suh intends to appeal the $20,000 fine levied against him by the NFL for his hit on Cincinnati's Andy Dalton. Suh also appealed both fines he received during his rookie season.
Analysis: Suh had one of the more dominating rookie seasons any defender has had, but he earned a menacing reputation against QBs in the process for big-time hits against them. He was on the same path last week against Dalton, but he continues to re-iterate that he won't change his playing style. Fantasy owners should enjoy that news, especially if Suh can duplicate or improve upon his 10 sacks and 66 tackles from 2010. Despite the money he will have to cough up, select the Nebraska product as a must-start option in IDP leagues.
News: The Detroit Free-Press reports that Lions DT Ndamukong Suhs great rookie season earned him a bump in pay next year. Suh, the defensive rookie of the year, who was due to make $405,000 in base salary next year, is now due $1.405 million. Suh, who led all NFL defensive tackles with 10 sacks, also earned base-salary increases in 2012-14 that total almost $27 million, according to NFL Players Association records. When he signed last August, Suhs total contract included about $40 million in guarantees, with a reported maximum total value of $68 million.
Analysis: Suh, who was the only rookie selected to the All-Pro Team, skipped the Pro Bowl as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery in early January. He should be fully healthy for next season and viewed as a must-start in all IDP leagues.
News: Detroit DT Ndamukong Suh was named the Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year on Friday, completing his sweep of the major NFL postseason rookie awards. Suh was previously chosen Rookie of the Year by the Sporting News, the Pro Football Writers and an NFL.com fan vote. "I was fortunate to be able to grasp my role in our scheme and to flourish in it," Suh said. "I'm just going to keep working hard to improve because I'll never be satisfied." Suh became the first Lion to collect the honor since Al Baker in 1978 and the seventh Detroit player overall, most in the NFL. Suh compiled 10 sacks -- the only Lion to reach double figures -- and 66 tackles in his first season out of Nebraska. St. Louis QB Sam Bradford won the Offensive Rookie of the Year honor.
Analysis: Suh became only the sixth defensive tackle to be chosen Defensive Rookie of the Year since the award was established in 1967 and the first since Dolphins DT Tim Bowens claimed the honor in 1994. Suh, the second overall pick in the NFL Draft, was an immediate force with Detroit and recorded a sack in nine games last season. "We didn't learn how to finish games and overcome mistakes until the end of the year," he said. "But we figured it out and I think our four-game winning streak is definitely something for us to build on going into next season." Suh, who was the only rookie selected to the All-Pro Team, skipped the Pro Bowl as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery in early January. He should be fully healthy for next season and viewed as a must-start in all IDP leagues.
News: Lions DT Ndamukong Suh was chosen as Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year Thursday. The winner is determined through online voting on NFL.com. Suh is the first defensive player ever to win the awardm as he finished 2010 with 10 sacks, becoming just the second rookie in NFL history to record double-digit sacks. Suh was also voted to the Pro Bowl and was the only rookie on The Associated Press All-Pro Team.
Analysis: Suh didn't get to play in the Pro Bowl because he had surgery on his shoulder early in the new year. He is expected to be fine heading into the 2011 season. The Nebraska product thrived in the NFL in his first season, and Detroit is building around his talents as they progress to relevance once again. Consider Suh as a must-own Fantasy DL next summer in IDP drafts. He should be fully recovered from shoulder surgery by then.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh has a lot to be excited about these days. The 307-pound defensive tackle out of Nebraska was the only rookie on The Associated Press All-Pro Team this week - an impressive reward for the 10 sacks that helped turn Suh into a fan favorite in his first season in Detroit. Suh was also picked for the Pro Bowl, but postseason shoulder surgery will prevent him from playing. "It's going to be tough to not play," he said. "But I made the decision to put my team ahead of myself and I don't regret that for one minute." Suh had surgery earlier this month. He's splitting time this offseason between Lincoln, Neb. - where he's doing most of his rehabilitation - Houston and Portland. Suh has plenty of time to recover before next season, although he's hesitant to say exactly how long it will take for him to return to full strength. "It's tough to put a timetable on it because all bodies are different," he said. "They respond differently to injuries."
Analysis: h lived up to the hype as the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft. He was a disruptive force as a rookie and will likely be one for years to come. Consider him a must-own Fantasy DL next summer in IDP drafts. He should be fully recovered from shoulder surgery by then.
News: DT Ndamukong Suh will not participate in the Pro Bowl. The rookie DT will undergo shoulder surgery. Suh had been named a starter for the NFC squad. "My thinking (on surgery) was just to make sure I was 100 percent healthy going into the offseason program and to be ready for March and so forth," Suh said. "I truly wanted to play in the Pro Bowl, which is a great honor and opportunity. It came down to making a decision to play in the Pro Bowl or to have surgery as soon as possible and begin rehab in order to help my team next year achieve our goals of getting into the playoffs and competing for a championship. The organization and I opted to have the surgery now and not wait. I will always put my team first."
Analysis: With a sack in the season finale against the Vikings, Suh became only the second rookie defensive tackle in NFL history to reach 10 sacks. The other was the 49ers Dana Stubblefield in 1993, when he had 10 1/2 sacks. Suh lived up to the hype as the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft. He was a disruptive force as a rookie and will likely be one for years to come. Consider him a must-own Fantasy DL next summer in IDP drafts. He should be fully recovered from shoulder surgery by then.

News: For the third straight game, DL Ndamukong Suh went without a sack, as the Lions defeated the Buccaneers in Week 15. It is the longest such streak in the rookie's career. Suh made three tackles in the game.
Analysis: Suh is in a little slump, but he is still worth using as a Fantasy DL. Keep him active in most formats for Week 16.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh made three tackles in Week 14 against the Packers, but he did not have a sack in the game. Suh now has 52 tackles on the year.
Analysis: Suh's production has been down the last couple of weeks, but he is still worth using as a Fantasy DL. Keep him active in all formats for Week 15.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh was involved in the play that helped the Bears defeat Detroit in Week 13. Jay Cutler threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Brandon Manumaleuna one play after a questionable call midway through the fourth quarter, lifting the Bears to a 24-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Referee Ed Hochuli flagged Ndamukong Suh for unnecessary roughness after he seemed to hit Cutler's shoulder pads, jolting him to the turf from behind when the quarterback was running downfield. "I felt it was an unnecessary non-football act -- a blow to the back of the runner's helmet in the process of him going down," Hochuli said, adding the penalty didn't have anything to do with Cutler being a QB.
Analysis: Suh, who finished the game with four tackles and no sacks, had an argument as the Twitter world all seemed to agree that it was a legal football hit. It ended up costing the Lions big time and definitely looked dirty when it happened in real time. Suh has had a few issues with illegal hits this season but has mostly been a great Fantasy option in IDP leagues with his eight sacks.
News:Ndamukong Suh's sack of Tom Brady was the lone defensive highlight for the Lions in Week 12 vs. the Patriots. He also had four total tackles (three solo).
Analysis: Suh has been an awesome lineman for the Lions and a good Fantasy option, too. Get him active when he takes on the Bears in Week 13.
News: Lions DT Ndamukong Suh played well Sunday at Dallas in Week 11. Suh has eight tackles, including five solo, with a half-sack.
Analysis: Suh is a solid DL in all IDP leagues and now has seven sacks on the season. Consider him a starting option in Week 12 against New England on Thanksgiving Day.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh recorded three tackles, including one solo, at Buffalo in Week 10. He hasn't recorded a sack in two games.
Analysis: Suh still has 6 1/2 sacks on the season, so you wouldn't want to give up on him in Fantasy. Like most defensive linemen, he doesn't get many tackles, but he gets enough to keep you alive when he goes without a sack. He remains a No. 1 Fantasy DL.
News: Lions rookie Ndamukong Suh did something he was not generally accustomed to doing on Sunday of Week 9 during a loss to the Jets. Suh, who finished the game with three tackles, was asked to kick an extra point. The former soccer player came on to score the point after touchdown in the third quarter after Matthew Stafford rushed for a touchdown. Kicker Jason Hanson tried a field goal just before that was ruled a roughing the kicker. Hanson was hurt on that play and could not kick the extra point after Stafford's TD. Suh came on and missed off the cross bar wide right. The missed PAT actually hurt the Lions, who could have won the game in regulation had Suh made the PAT.
Analysis: Suh is having a great rookie season, missed PAT aside. He has 6 1/2 sacks and 31 tackles with an interception and a defensive touchdown after eight games. He's all over the field -- even kicking -- and has become a solid Fantasy IDP option in all leagues for Week 10 at Buffalo.
News: Lions rookie DT Ndamukong Suh made his presence felt with a huge game vs. the Redskins in Week 8. In the win Suh was very disruptive up front and set up sacks for several of his teammates and had two of his own. He also recovered a Rex Grossman fumble and returned it for his first NFL score to ice the win for the Lions. Suh also had five total tackles. "He's one of the best in the game," teammate Kyle Vanden Bosch said of his teammate.
Analysis: This was easily Suh's best game to-date, and more like this should come down the pike. Remember, Suh is a super-athletic big man in the middle of the Lions' D-line, and many of the guys he'll see on a game-to-game basis won't be able to handle his abilities. He's close to being a must-start Fantasy DL and isn't a bad option for Week 9 against the Jets -- New York center Nick Mangold will have his hands full with Suh.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh recorded 1 1/2 sacks in Week 6 at the Giants. He finished the game with three tackles.
Analysis: Suh has had at least one sack in four of six games to begin his NFL career. He isn't piling up tackles, and that likely won't be a big part of his game, but he is getting to the quarterback enough to be considered a good start in any IDP format.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh recorded his first career interception in Week 5 against the Rams. He finished with three tackles (two solo).
Analysis: Suh has three sacks and one interception in his first five NFL games. He is as disruptive in the pros as he was in college and is showing why he was drafted second overall in this past NFL draft. Suh has already become a solid Fantasy DL.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh recorded a sack for the third time in four games in Week 4 against the Packers. He finished with three solo tackles and has 15 tackles through four games.
Analysis: Suh has been nothing short of spectacular in his first four NFL games. He is showing why he was considered the best DL prospect in this year's draft class. He might be a defensive tackle, but Suh can rush the passer. He has already become a viable play in Fantasy IDP leagues.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh went without a sack for the first time in his career in Week 3 against the Vikings. He recorded just three tackles in the game.
Analysis: Suh had gotten off to a very impressive stat in the first two weeks of the season, but nobody expected him to have a sack in every game. He has lived up to the hype as a high draft pick this summer and is proving to be a good start in all IDP formats for his innate ability to get to where he needs to be on defense. Continue to keep him active.
News: Lions coach Jim Schwartz preached high praise on rookie DL Ndamukong Suh to reporters on Monday after his impressive start to the season: "I think that we're just seeing the surface scratched with him," said Schwartz. "That sounds a little funny when he's had a sack in each of his first two games."
Analysis: The rookie DL finished Week 1 with eight tackles (six solo) and has nine takedowns in his first two games. He has lived up to the hype as a high draft pick this summer and is proving to be a good start in all IDP formats for his innate ability to get to where he needs to be on defense.
News: Lions DL Ndamukong Suh managed a second for a second straight game in Week 2 against the Eagles. The rookie DL finished with eight tackles (six solo) and has nine takedowns in his first two games.
Analysis: Suh built his reputation at Nebraska for being a disruptive tackle that could get after the QB. He is living up to his potential very early in his NFL career and becoming a nice Fantasy play in IDP leagues as well.
News: Lions rookie DT Ndamukong Suh played well in his first NFL game on Sunday at Chicago. Suh had one tackle, but it went for a sack.
Analysis: Suh will likely rack up more sacks as his NFL career moves along. He's worth using in most IDP leagues as a No. 2 DL, and hopefully his tackle totals will continue to rise. Look for Suh to play well in Week 2 against the Eagles and consider him a quality starter at DL.
News:The Sports Xchange reports Lions DL Ndamukong Suh has been as good as advertised throughout camp, but he had his most productive game Saturday against the Browns. He had two tackles, one for a loss, and he batted down a pass. He also almost tore quarterback Jake Delhomme's head off, throwing him down by the facemask. "You don't want to do anything to curb his aggressiveness," coach Jim Schwartz said with a wry smile. "But, seriously, there are things are different here than in college. He can't do that here."
Analysis: Suh hasn't even played a regular-season game in the NFL, but he is already a revelation in Fantasy Football. He has been drafted in 44 percent of IDP leagues on CBSSports.com. It seems Fantasy owners are expecting Suh to be as good a player as he was in college, but we worry there is still going to be a learning curve for the rookie tackle. Just keep your expectations in check with a rookie DL.
News: The Detroit Lions' wait to get Ndamukong Suh signed and on the field is over. Suh and the Lions agreed on a five-year contract worth $40 million guaranteed and as much as $68 million. The Lions are counting on the former Nebraska defensive tackle to bolster a defense that ranked among the league's all-time worst in points allowed the past two seasons while the team went 2-30.
Analysis: The Lions are expecting Suh to become a cornerstone of their rebuilt defense, wreaking havoc as one of the top interior defensive line prospects to come along in years. He appears to have the talent to be one of the rare defensive tackles who can get to the quarterback and produce Fantasy statistics, so consider him a No. 3 Fantasy DL. Target him late in seasonal IDP leagues, sooner in dynasty/keeper formats and with a mid-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
News:Ndamukong Suh has missed his third straight day of practice with the Lions. Head coach Jim Schwartz says it's disappointing the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft has missed some opportunities in training camp that are gone forever. "Both sides are working hard to get this resolved," Suh's agent wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Analysis: If the Lions' defense is going to make strides this season, Suh needs to be in camp pitching in. We suspect he'll be in camp soon enough, and he strikes us as the rare defensive tackle who can put up just enough stats to warrant use as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy DL. Think late-round pick on Suh.
News: Lions DT Ndamukong Suh showed the skills the team drafted him for during his first OTA workout with the full roster. Suh was effective using the blocking sled, moving the apparatus ably. His power off the ball will be crucial to creating the QB pressure the Lions lacked in 2009. Suh found his first workout with the veterans intense, but said he wasn't out of shape and wants to get into contact drills. "In the trenches, it's full go, even in helmets, but I think it'll be a truer test of what it's like when we get the pads on," he said.
Analysis: Suh is a disruptive interior force who will make a big difference for the Lions' run defense in 2010. We suspect he'll be the rare defensive tackle who will put up halfway decent stats, making him a potential No. 3 Fantasy DL in drafts. Look his way late in seasonal IDP leagues, sooner in dynasty/keeper formats and with a mid-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
News: The Detroit News reports Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, the No. 2 overall draft pick, said he doesn't expect his contract negotiations to be a problem and wants to avoid a holdout later this summer. "I'm a totally different guy," Suh said. "I'm not a guy that likes to be a part of drama. I don't even like being in the limelight, so I definitely don't want to hold out. We have the understanding that I want to be on time, in camp and ready to go." The Lions have largely avoided holdouts with their high picks. That includes a pair of recent deals with the No. 2 pick. Charles Rogers missed no time in 2003, while Calvin Johnson skipped only a few days of training camp before signing in 2007.
Analysis: We like Suh's attitude and hope he follows through on being part of all the offseason work. He has the chance to help the Lions defense this year and become a dominant force in the middle of their defensive line. He could also help Fantasy owners, which is rare for a defensive tackle. Plan on drafting Suh with a late-round pick in IDP leagues as a No. 3 DL.
News: The Lions' defense instantly got better when they drafted Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh with the second overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Suh is expected to start right away for the Lions and be a big part of the improved Lions' defensive line. The first defensive lineman to be a Heisman Trophy finalist since 1994, Suh recorded a career-best 85 tackles (52 solos) with 12 sacks, 24 stops for loss and 26 pressures in 2009 with three blocked kicks.
Analysis: Suh is a disruptive interior force who will make a big difference for the Lions' run defense in 2010. We suspect he'll be the rare defensive tackle who will put up halfway decent stats, making him a potential No. 3 Fantasy DL in drafts. Look his way late in seasonal IDP leagues, sooner in dynasty/keeper formats and with a mid-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
