Summary

Hitchens posted big tackle numbers in his Kansas City debut (137 over 15 games), bringing LB2 value to IDPers along the way. But that looks like his absolute ceiling, especially with ex-Jet Darron Lee brought in to compete for snaps. Hitchens graded poorly as a real-life linebacker and offered next to nothing against the pass (no sacks or pass breakups). Like teammate Reggie Ragland, he looks best cast as a part-time run-stuffer, and Lee absolutely threatens his fantasy value. Even if he maintains the job for Week 1, he's not an inspiring LB2 pick.
