Deep League Linebackers - Week 2
Luke Kuechly had six tackles, two assists, a sack, a pass defended, and the game-winning forced fumble in the Panthers’ opening-week win over division rival Tampa Bay. This article is not about Kuechly or linebackers like him. Even in deeper formats, many linebackers were ignored by fantasy owners in IDP formats because of their age of because of a scheme change. Each week, I plan to salvage a few of those linebackers from the scrap heap who can be useful to owners in deeper, tackle-heavy formats.
