Samson Ebukam (LAR): Yes Aaron Donald is a freak and is the guy on the Rams’ front seven to own. Yes, Dante Fowler Jr has a ton of upside. And yes Cory Littleton is a monster. But Ebukam flashes from time to time and might be worth a look in big-play leagues. He has 3.5 sacks in the past three games, doing damage against mobile quarterbacks in Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson. If you’re looking to stash a guy who has some upside in leagues that reward greatly for sacks, Ebukam is worth a look.
Matt Judon (BAL): Another linebacker with big-play upside is Judon, who has somewhat-quietly put up 8.5 sacks on the season. He’s also forced three fumbles, all in the past month’s worth of games. There are times where he also racks up some tackles, making him a linebacker with a pretty high ceiling. That being said, the floor is somewhat low, too. In larger leagues that reward you for big plays, Judon is worth a look as he’s just 27 and the Ravens will continue to be aggressive defensively.
Craig Robertson (NOS): Perhaps not a long-term option based on age, but more of a plug-and-play for this year and perhaps next if the Saints move on from A.J. Klein in 2020. Robertson has proven to be a solid stat sheet stuffer in the past, and now that he’s getting regular snaps with both Klein and Kiko Alonso on the mend, he’s doing it again. He will remain consistent tackle-wise, but will also plug in the big-play stats as well. He’s a great addition for those that lost guys like Myles Jack.
