Jordan Rains
The IDP Army
Blake Martinez continues to be the model of consistency, posting back-to-back 150+ total tackles and putting together his 4th consecutive season with 144 or more. There was some concern that the move from Green Bay to New York would hurt his production but it was in fact just the opposite. Martinez enjoyed a career year in total tackles with 155 and managed to do it all while being banged up down the stretch with a neck and ankle injury. Martinez has now finished as a Top 10 LB each of the last 4 seasons. Top 5 in 2020, 2018, and 2017. - The Ultimate IDP IndexHouston linebacker Zach Cunningham got paid in the off-season and proceeded to turn in 164 combined tackles on just 944 defensive snaps. That's an elite tackle rate of 17%. Probably not repeatable but Cunningham did have a 15% tackle rate the season before. Tackles are how Cunningham produced most of his fantasy points, posting a meager 13 impact plays all season. Three of those were sacks though so that's always nice. Get used to seeing Cunningham's name in the top 12 IDP linebacker conversation for the foreseeable future. If you're a bettor he's +700 to lead the NFL in tackles on DraftKings and in my opinion that's a good bet.

Martinez has been the most consistently productive and reliable fantasy linebacker over the last four seasons, generating at least 144 total tackles each year since 2017 and never missing a start during that time. He doesn't have the same upside as Leonard, White, and Smith given he's not asked to blitz much and doesn't generate a ton of big plays, but he's one of the more sound tacklers in the game and will provide managers with high floor production.Cunningham's tackle production has increased in each of his four seasons in the league, culminating in a league-leading 164 total tackle performance in 2020. His 17.5% tackle frequency was also #1 among all LBs. Similar to Blake Martinez, Cunningham lacks the big play upside of the very top echelon of fantasy linebackers. However, Houston's defense could be on the field more in 2021 which makes Cunningham a prime candidate to lead the league in tackles again and a sneaky candidate to be the top linebacker off the board in tackle-heavy scoring formats.
