2020 Fantasy Outlook
After landing on the IR in September, Anzalone should be fully healthy for the 2020 season. His health is a concern as he enters the final year of his rookie deal, as he's missed 26 total games due to injury through his first three seasons in the league. Despite having only one full season under his belt (2018), Anzalone is fully expected to compete for a starting job, though upstart rookie Zack Baun will be in the mix for that job too.

Disappointing season
LBNew Orleans Saints
January 31, 2021
Anzalone recorded 41 tackles (22 solo) across 16 regular-season games for the Saints in 2020.
ANALYSIS
It was encouraging to see him play all 16 games after playing in just two last year, and despite playing heavy snaps, he disappointed. Anzalone failed to force a turnover or record a sack and compiled fewer than three tackles per game -- a career-low mark. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2021, and his future with the Saints is yet unknown.
