Jordan Rains
The IDP Army
Another season, another dominant showing from Colts linebacker Darius Leonard. It was a slow start to the season for Leonard who posted 15, 16, and 21 point games the first three weeks of the season. He then proceeded to get hurt early in the game Week 4 and was forced to sit out of weeks 5 and 6. It was rough but he rewarded the faithful when he surged back in weeks 8 and 9 with 28 and 32.3 point games. Leonard remained hot down the stretch and finished firmly as an LB1 despite the missed time. Leonard appeared in 14 games but truly only played in 13. He finished the season with 132 total tackles, and 22 impact plays.Blake Martinez continues to be the model of consistency, posting back-to-back 150+ total tackles and putting together his 4th consecutive season with 144 or more. There was some concern that the move from Green Bay to New York would hurt his production but it was in fact just the opposite. Martinez enjoyed a career year in total tackles with 155 and managed to do it all while being banged up down the stretch with a neck and ankle injury. Martinez has now finished as a Top 10 LB each of the last 4 seasons. Top 5 in 2020, 2018, and 2017. - The Ultimate IDP Index

In his three seasons in the league, Leonard has proven himself as fantasy's #1 linebacker - averaging 10 total tackles per game along with a 85% chance of generating a big play (INT, FF, FR) each week. He's well protected up front which will allow him to continue to rack up production at a league-leading rate. The one "ding" on Leonard's record is he's never played a full season, missing 1, 3, and 2 games, respectively the last three seasons.Martinez has been the most consistently productive and reliable fantasy linebacker over the last four seasons, generating at least 144 total tackles each year since 2017 and never missing a start during that time. He doesn't have the same upside as Leonard, White, and Smith given he's not asked to blitz much and doesn't generate a ton of big plays, but he's one of the more sound tacklers in the game and will provide managers with high floor production.
