COMMENTS
  Darius Leonard, IND: Top dog IDP LB. Leonard benefits from a generous home scorer and every-down activity.

  Bobby Wagner, SEA: Wagner had a big year in 2019 with 159 total tackles, and he'll be busy again in 2020.

  Joe Schobert, JAC: The change of scenery will benefit Schobert, who's in line for career-high IDP totals.

  Deion Jones, ATL: He's been unlucky in the injury department but has enormous upside as a Top 5 IDP LB.

Jaylon Smith, DAL: Amid the uncertainty of the other Cowboys LBS, Smith cleans up, and doesn't get nearly enough press.

  Cory Littleton, LV: Littleton anchored the LB corps for the LR and now brings leadership and upside to Vegas.

  Blake Martinez, NYG: The Giants brought in Martinez to shore up a poor unit and rack up the tackles. Risky based on how NYG stat guys handle tackles/assists.

  Jordan Hicks, ARI: Could be ready for a huge breakout in 2020.

  Khalil Mack, CHI: The numbers are there even with the switch to LB, and I expect the sack numbers to rebound.

Lavonte David, TB: Lavonte is a an old reliable IDP guy, but there's always injury risk.

  DeMario Davis, NO: Easily forgotten in IDP drafts, Davis is a solid pick after the big boys are gone.

  Chandler Jones, ARI: Always a huge IDP risk based on his style and the sack "x factor."

  Shaq Thompson, CAR: He'll be shouldering a much bigger load with Luke Kuechly gone.

  Devin Bush, PIT: Huge upside on a great unit, the only downside is his field time and the presence of other tackle mavens.

  T.J. Watt, PIT: Might be hard to top last season's numbers, but the pedigree is there.

  Devin White, TB: Could be poised for a breakout, especially if David misses time.

  Tremaine Edmunds, BUF: The Bills keep him on the field and he's a solid tackler.

  Zach Cunningham, HOU: The best IDP option on the Texans other than Watt.

  Fred Warner, SF: Great sleeper in 2019 who saw more field time than expected. He's on track for another solid season.

  Jerome Baker, MIA: Young and talented defender on an underrated unit.
