Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Bobby Wagner had his third consecutive top 5 IDP season with league leading 159 total tackles (89 solo) despite knee and ankle injuries hindering him at times. While he lacks the other-worldly upside of Darius Leonard, he's as safe as houses (used to be) and he's a worthy pick as the second IDP player off the board, though he should go several rounds later than the Colts LB.Jaylon Smith has had consecutive top ten seasons lined up next to equally excellent but more injury-prone Leighton Vander Esch. Unlike many other top LBs, Smith's production is reliable and unlikely to be affected by regression making him one of the safest LBs in the top ten.
Ryan Sitzmann
The IDP Guru
Wagner has been consistently dominant in the box scores since entering the league in 2012 and he showed little signs of slowing down last year as he compiled a ridiculous 159 total tackles (73 assists). The only thing holding him out of contention from the top tier at his position is his less than ideal home stat crew who ranked towards the bottom in terms of "generosity" in standard scoring leagues due to their assist-heavy scoring lean.Although there was some on-the-field regression in play from Smith last year, it was arguably his best fantasy season to date. With Leighton Vander Esch underperforming and battling through a serious neck injury, Jaylon was able to post LB1 numbers. Smith's ability to ascend to the next tier of fantasy linebackers will be somewhat dependent on how well LVE return's from injury. That aside, he should still be a fairly safe pick within the top 8 at his position.
