Giants Now: Micah McFadden makes PFF Team of the Week


Micah McFadden makes Pro Football Focus Team of the Week

Inside linebacker Micah McFadden continued his encouraging sophomore season with another strong performance against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 9.

McFadden totaled six tackles (three solo), two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit. He also dropped into coverage on 15 snaps and did not allow a single reception.

His performance earned him a spot on the Pro Football Focus Team of the Week.

McFadden has seen his production increase over the last four weeks. Since Week 6, the 23-year-old has allowed just four receptions in coverage while picking up seven defensive stops. He has earned an overall PFF grade of 87.9 or higher in three of the four outings, and had the highest grade of any linebacker in Week 7.

McFadden's 90.6 overall grade since Week 6 ranks third among all linebackers.

The second-year linebacker has started all eight games this season and has either topped or is on pace to beat all of his rookie season marks. McFadden has recorded 54 tackles (31 solo), seven tackles for loss, five quarterback hits, two passes defensed, one interception and two fumble recoveries along with 0.5 sacks.

McFadden also has 11 total pressures on just 38 pass rushing snaps, according to PFF, after totaling just six pressures last season.
