Summary

Sheldon Rankins enjoyed his finest season yet as a pro in 2018, only to tear his Achilles in the Divisional Round match-up. The injury puts the start of his 2019 season in jeopardy, with Achilles injury rehab one of the trickier to navigate. The Saints picked up Rankins' fifth-year option in his rookie deal, keeping him tied to the team through the end of the 2020 season. Rankins, if ready, should start alongside Malcom Brown and benefit from other threats along the line. He is a safe bet as a low-end DL3, but the injury uncertainty caps his upside. (May 12)
