Summary

Mack has, right on cue, developed into a truly dominant pass-rushing force. Few NFL rushers can boast his combination of speed, athleticism, and intensity off the edge. Over his second and third NFL seasons, he's averaged a line of 77 tackles, 13.5 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles. Beyond J.J. Watt, there's no better bet to combine tackles with splash plays and land solid top-2 value among defensive linemen. That said, for all of his greatness, Mack's true value in your ADP league depends entirely upon whether he classifies as a lineman or a linebacker. On the DL, he's the clear-cut No. 2 option on the board - and considering Watt's injury, you could consider him a safer play. As a LB, however, he loses some luster in comparison to the elite tacklers. His 70+ tackles don't go for naught, of course, but they don't help IDPers especially much unless he's posting 15+ sacks at the same time. Luckily for Mack and his owners, he's as much of an annual threat to reach that mark as anyone. (May 21)
