Summary

Once called a "two down thumper" by some in the fantasy community, Benardrick McKinney proved doubters wrong in 2016. Not only did he become a three down staple of the defense, he also logged five sacks and a whopping 129 total tackles. In so doing, he became the only Texans player to log five sacks and over 100 tackles in the same season. McKinney will once again have the aging Brian Cushing playing beside him this year. In time, rookie Zach Cunningham projects to move into Cushing's spot, which could negatively impact McKinney's tackle totals. Until that occurs, however, McKinney is a top tier fantasy option.
