Summary

Through two games in the 2014 season, Levy was playing well at the WLB position. When Steven Tulloch tore his ACL after a sack dance, Levy was slotted into the MLB and Tahir Whitehead was moved to the middle. The move propelled Levy to have the best fantasy season of any linebacker in most formats. Levy did it all, even successfully defending passes when asked to drop into coverage. With Tulloch's return probable, Levy will move back to WLB. Considering that he will be playing behind a front seven sans Suh and Fairley, the case can be made for his tackle numbers to decrease this year. The team has taken note of his stellar play and is working to lock him up to a multi-year deal. The long-term plan could be to move him permanently to MLB, which would be fantastic for his dynasty stock. (May 16)
