The IDP Guru
Long time IDPGuru.com followers know that I've been perpetually down on Kendricks versus other rankers; however, he proved me wrong last year. Before getting injured in Week 12, Kendricks was averaging nearly 9 total tackles a game and produced 3 INTs to boot. This bump in tackle production was likely due to the Vikings defense being weaker up front than in past years. Although he's unlikely to pick up exactly where he left off last year, he should see enough opportunity to remain in the low-end LB/high-end LB2 conversation.Being a diehard Cowboys fan, I got the opportunity to watch Smith more than most IDPs. And he looked lost a lot last year. His struggles could be attributed to the new scheme and the entire defense being epically bad. But I'm slightly concerned the team may limit his snaps a bit and rotate in some combination of LVE and/or Neal along with Parsons in their 4-2-5 nickel packages. I'm willing to let someone else take the risk on Smith this year.
