Summary

When the Browns made Kirksey their third round pick in 2014 many fantasy owners and prognosticators thought he would be a focal point of the defense and a team leader. After falling well short of those expectations in his first two seasons he exploded in under the new coaching staff in 2016. The shift in scheme did not bother him last year as Kirksey once again stepped up big in the box scores, this time as a three down weak side linebacker. His tackle total slipped slightly but was easily made up for by the big play contribution that had been absent previously. Kirksey made his first appearance as a top ten fantasy linebacker in 2017. Chances are it will not be his last. (May 30)
