The IDP Guru
Leonard undoubtedly provides the biggest upside of any fantasy linebacker given his ability to contribute top tier production across a myriad of statistical categories, providing a powerful combination of strong tackle production and big plays. The only thing keeping him out of the top linebacker spot for me is his recent injury issues. He had ankle surgery prior to the start of the 2021 season and although he only missed one game, he admitted his ankle still wasn't 100% and it negatively impacted his production at certain times. Recent reports indicate he will now undergo minor back surgery which is thought to be connected to the ankle and calf injuries he battled through last year. He's expected back in time for training camp and I have confidence he will work through any lingering injury issues much like he did last year and put up LB1 numbers, but there is ultimately some risk with Leonard.Although he's long been an LB1 fantasy linebacker, some may be surprised Wagner sits at the top spot in my rankings given his age (32) and the fact he's entering into his 12th season. However, the move from the Seahawks to the Rams should actually help bolster his production. LA runs a ton of one-LB sets where Wagner and a lot of Cover 2, both factors that have shown to increase tackle efficiency and production. He's also moving to a more generous/somewhat less assist-heavy home stat crew which is another added bonus. This combination of low risk, increased upside making Wagner my #1 overall fantasy linebacker in 2022.
