Summary

Hitchens will step into the franchise-sized shoes of Derrick Johnson as the starter in Kansas City's middle, but he's not a great breakout candidate. He racked up an impressive 84 tackles over 553 snaps last year in Dallas, but not much else. Besides, Johnson tended to leave the field on passing downs in 2017, and Hitchens could similarly cede a chunk of his snaps. Treat him as a fantasy LB3 with modest upside. (May 22)
