Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Cory Littleton became an absolute stud at middle linebacker over the last two seasons and won a valuable move to Las Vegas. While much of his $36 million, three year contract is guaranteed, his fantasy production isn't as Vegas hasn't really given fantasy players any LB value since Jon Gruden arrived. Though to be fair, Nicholas Morrow managed more solo tackles than Littleton last year so that's room for hope. Littleton will be one of the first IDP players off the table due to his top-end upside, just understand the associated risk.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
Despite going undrafted, Littleton emerged as one of the Rams' most important defensive playmakers over the last two seasons and parlayed that into a significant payday with the Raiders in the offseason. He'll play on the weak side in Las Vegas' 4-3 scheme and should have no problem racking up tackles in healthy amounts given his main tackle competition is career reserve player Nick Kwiatkoski.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.
