Vander Esch took the NFC by storm, finishing with 143 total tackles (2nd in the NFL behind Darius Leonard), despite playing in only 76% of the total defensive snaps. His 18.2% tackle frequency was the highest in the league and shows he has #1 overall LB fantasy upside. He will be a every-down player heading into the 2019 season, but the presence of Jaylon Smith keeps LVE outside the top 5 linebackers.After an LB1 2017 campaign, Mosley saw a fairly significant reduction in production last year with just 71 solo tackles and 0.5 sack. He should see more tackle opportunity with the Jets and their scheme emphasises pass-rushing from their inside linebackers, so an uptick in sack production is likely as well. It's reasonable to expect numbers similar to his 2015 campaign (76 solo tackles, 40 assists, and 4 sacks) but there is more uncertainty with Mosley than other players in this rankings range.
