Season high in tackles
DTNew England Patriots
November 18, 2019
Shelton generated seven tackles, one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 17-10 victory over the Eagles.
Shelton made a number of impressive plays, none bigger than his strip-sack of Carson Wentz in the second quarter. By the final whistle, he finished with a new season high in tackles while continuing to raise his career high with his third sack of the season. Clearly an important piece of a stout Patriots defense, Shelton will need to keep performing at a high level in order for New England to shut down Ezekiel Elliott in Week 12.

Jim Coventry looks at IDPs whose role or fantasy value has changed recently, including Pittsburgh linebacker T.J. Watt.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Shelton enters his third NFL season and is expected to be Cleveland’s starting defensive tackle. He took big strides in year two, and with help from Myles Garrett, the 23 year old should be even better in 2017, especially in stopping the run.
The Browns' first-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, Shelton appeared consistently overweight throughout the entirety of the 2015 season and played on just 48 percent of the team's defensive snaps. However, he showed up to training camp in significantly better shape, and is poised to improve on his 36 tackle, zero sack rookie-year performance. Nonetheless, Shelton remains firmly off the IDP radar.
Shelton is expected to serve as the starting nose tackle in defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil's 3-4 scheme. He's known primarily for his run-stopping ability, so if he ends up getting replaced on passing downs, it risks limiting his value as an IDP. He did manage nine sacks in his senior season at Washington, however, but it remains to be seen if that capability will translate to the NFL.
