Summary

Mack is clearly one of the truly elite defensive players in the NFL but his fantasy value will vary widely depending on league settings. When grouped among defensive linemen, he ranks among the most valuable IDPs in the league but he becomes a lot less valuable when grouped among linebackers. With the Bears using a 3-4 front again this year under new coordinator Chuck Pagano, it looks like he'll remain at linebacker and that makes it harder to separate him from the pack. In leagues with scoring that heavily weights big plays, he'll likely be a strong LB1 but he's still a viable LB2 in most balanced leagues with the potential to post huge weeks that can win matchups almost single-handedly. His tackle numbers will likely remain low as long as the Bears play dominant defense as a group, but he also has 15+ sack upside. (May 27)
