Notes for Player Combination
Jordan Rains
The IDP Army
Demario Davis offers a solid tackle floor for an LB2 but what makes him a real sneaky IDP asset is his sack upside. He's gotten home for 4 or more sacks each of the last 4 seasons. He's also great in coverage so he scores all over the field and can spike for a top 3 LB week at any time. A great arbitrage LB1. - Jordan Rains 
Ryan Sitzmann
The IDP Guru
Davis lacks the elite tackle upside potential of a typical upper tier linebacker (he only eclipsed 7 solo tackles once last year) but has maintained LB2+ value in recent years with at least four sacks or more in four straight seasons (the Saints use him to blitz a lot). Despite a slight downturn in production last year and him being 32 years old, I'm projecting increased year over year stats from him. The Saints saw the lowest tackle opportunity of any team in the league last year which ultimately limited his tackles. With Drew Brees retired, I expect the defense to see more snaps in 2021.
