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.Thompson was blocked from an every down role by veteran Thomas Davis for the majority of his career until the latter left the team in 2019. He's been a fine LB3 play for us during those last two seasons as a full-timer, averaging 110 total tackles. But he's honestly been a bit of an underachiever fantasy-wise and will likely continue to be the second best tackle option on the team behind Jeremy Chinn.
