Who Is the Top Defensive Lineman on a New Team?

The Footballguys staff discuss veteran defensive linemen who changed teams over the offseason

Who is your top defensive lineman on a different team in 2020? Are you targeting this player in a normal redraft league? Do you think they might be underrated by most of the fantasy community?

Jason Wood

Unless Jadaveon Clowney signs in a perfect situation, my choice comes down to DeForest Buckner with Indianapolis or Calais Campbell with Baltimore. Buckner is the rare defensive tackle worthy of IDP consideration in leagues that don't require a separation of ends and tackles. His tackle numbers and ability to disrupt the passer make him a compelling addition to an already opportunistic Colts front. Campbell is aging, but he was still highly productive in Arizona and goes to a team that knows how to utilize defensive talent better than most.

Matt Waldman

While I like Jason's mentioning of Buckner and Campbell, I think Campbell will be used more to keep his linebackers clean than as a penetrator and disruptor for stats.
