Summary

Weddle was a standout in both NFL and fantasy terms throughout his nine years in San Diego. If not for a couple of injury shortened seasons he may well have produced at least 75 solo tackles in eight consecutive years. Having 19 interceptions, 9 fumbles forced or recovered, 6 sacks and 4 defensive scores on his resume while with the Chargers, Baltimore signed him last season to be a big play contributor. In his first season with the Ravens, Weddle kept the big plays coming when he produced 4 picks, a forced fumble, a sack and 13 passes defended. Unfortunately for fantasy owners he had the same issue Ravens free safeties have in the past (see Ed Reed). That being a lack of quality tackle totals. Weddle's 48 solo stops got a boost from his 41 assists but it was not enough to keep him at the same level we had come to expect. While he still managed a top fifteen finish in most leagues in 2016, week to week consistency was a problem. Weddle scored almost 25% of his points in two games while producing 6 or fewer in six other contests. This trend is likely to continue, especially with the addition of tackling machine Tony Jefferson at strong safety. Weddle should continue to have fantasy value, though it will be more as a decent third starter or quality depth going forward. (May 27)
