2015 IDP LB Top 10 Rankings
By Doug Eddy
Here is the first of our three part series for this year’s IDP rankings! Linebackers are where the bread gets buttered in fantasy leagues and our top ten list plus a sleeper will prepare you for victory!
- Luke Kuechly: The best in the business. Guaranteed 150+ tackles, 2-3 picks and has never missed a game. No brainer.
- Deandre Levy: Standing on planes in flight in the offseason and racking up solo tackles and Ints on the field, its what he does. Always around the ball.
- Lavonte David: Would have been my number two but health has knocked him down a notch. He just got paid so lets hope he delivers in a big way!
- C.J. Mosley: Ravens LB that’s a top fantasy option? Where have I heard that before? Dynasty league must have!
- Navorro Bowman: No Willis, no Borland,no problem. Coming off a horrific injury look for Bowman to rebound in the run heavy NFC West.
- Bobby Wagner: New contract, same production. When healthy Wagner is a game changer. Did you see that pick in the Super Bowl?
- Kiko Alonso: Another bounce back LB! Alonso was an animal in Buffalo his rookie year. I expect him to rebound and lead the NFC East in tackles.
- Paul Worrilow: Rock solid without the name recognition means a draft day discount!
- Paul Posluszny: Always seems hurt but when he is on the field he is a top five points per game play
- Jamie Collins: When Gronk calls you a freak then you are something special. Can cover any TE and rush the passer. Tackles+picks+sacks= fantasy gold
- SLEEPER: Bruce Carter: Third in pts. per snap for LB’s last year and he’s the new “Mike” LB in Tampa. He’s pretty much free in drafts right now. You can’t beat that value!
