Ryan Sitzmann
The IDP Guru
After a disappointing 2019 season in which he was obviously still recovering from an Achilles injury suffered in 2018, Jones' fantasy production rebounded a bit last year. But that was largely due to him generating a career high 4.5 sacks. Given that his previous career high was one, I'm not banking on him being able to replicate that this year. And his tackle production isn't strong enough post Achilles injury to lift him out of the LB3+ tier for me.

Had 26 impact plays as a rookie in 2016. Two of those being touchdowns and 3 being interceptions but since then has been a bit of a headache but.....it finally happened. Deion Jones got his mojo back in a big way in 2020 finishing as an LB1 for the first time since 2017. Jones made his hay as a true impact player posting an imposing 25. He enjoyed some pass-rushing success in 2020 with 4.5 total sacks, a career-best. It was good to see Jones put together back to back fully healthy seasons. Injury has been prevalent throughout his career but that appears behind him now. It's a funny tidbit but it was the 3rd season in a row that Jones has scored a defensive touchdown and his 5 defensive touchdowns in his 5-year career. Regarded by many to be the prototype for the new NFL defender, he's a great sideline to sideline defender who can make plays on the ball. - The Ultimate IDP IndexWhile the tape will tell you Jaylon Smith struggled in 2020, dynasty managers couldn't be happier about his production. He finished second in the league with 154 combined tackles, 89 of those solo. Both career marks. It was his 4th straight season of playing in all 16 games and his 3rd straight LB1 finish. It was a quiet season for Smith in terms of impact plays, posting only 15. That's a career-low after taking over as a starter. In 2018 he had 19 impact plays and in 2019 he posted 22. With Dan Quinn recently hired as the Cowboy's new defensive coordinator, I anticipate a career year in impact plays from Smith to go along with his stellar tackle numbers. - The Ultimate IDP Index
