Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Ninkovich has proven himself to be a very reliable and valuable fantasy commodity. Most fantasy owners likely undervalue him because he doesn't have a splashy pedigree as a former 5th round pick who took many years to finally emerge as a starter. He's also shifted between OLB and DE at times in his career, which has made it tough to get a read on him. That being said, his numbers over the past few years rank him among the elite at the DE position even though he's yet to top 10 sacks in a single season. The high tackle numbers, particularly assists, make him a player to target in balanced scoring leagues. (May 26)
