Ryan Sitzmann
The IDP Guru
Watt has wasted no time cementing himself as one of the league's more dynamic, young pass-rushers as he's compiled 21 total sacks in his first two seasons (14 last year). The pedigree is obvious and he should only continue to improve in year-three. His tackle numbers are respectable for an edge rusher which bumps up his ranking a bit comparatively to others such as Terrell Suggs, Jadaveon Clowney, Ryan Kerrigan, etc. The one caveat with Watt is his sacks have tended to come in bunches to start his career, so the big week-to-week variances can be frustrating for owners who have to make start/sit decisions.Based on preseason/training camp usage, it looks like it's going to be Vontaze Burfict and Whitehead as the Raiders' three-down linebackers. Whitehead is a hard player to get too excited about, but he's been fairly productive throughout his career and should figure to see a lot of opportunity, especially if/when Burfict misses time.
