LB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
Aaron Lynch finished Sunday's win over the Bills with two total tackles and a sack.
Since filling in for Khalil Mack, Lynch has added three total tackles and a sack. If Mack were to miss any more time it appears Lynch would still get the first crack at the field. Hopefully, he will continue to contribute more and more if Mack is still out. When Mack returns, Lynch needs to be kept on waivers.
Aaron Lynch finished Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers with three solo tackles, a sack, and an interception.
Lynch took advantage of his playing time after Sam Acho left Sunday’s game with a pectoral injury. Lynch should not be owned at this time but is one player to keep an eye on as the season progresses.
Aaron Lynch had three tackles, two sacks and batted down a pass at the line in limited work against the Chiefs.
Lynch looked dominant at times, showing that the weight he lost in the offseason has paid off. If he can get back to the player he was before a suspension and injury-plagued season last year, he can be a dominant pass rusher. In IDP leagues that reward big plays he could be a sleeper, but unless he surpasses some people on the depth chart or injuries occur, he is nothing more than a player to watch.
The 49ers linebacker is said to be "a cool 20 pounds overweight."
The 49ers brass has been quick to act this offseason with turning over players they feel don't fit their system. Lynch has shown the ability to be a talented pass rusher with 12.5 sacks combined over his first two seasons, but an injury-shortened 2016 coupled with this current development may land him on the chopping block. He could be a useful piece to any team if he proves his mind is in the right place, but where he'll play in 2017 is up in the air, even if he stays on the 49ers as they transition to a completely new defensive configuration.
Aaron Lynch has been ruled out of Sunday's contest with his ankle injury.
Lynch has been disappointing this season for owners who speculated on him coming back from his four-game suspension to build on his sacks from last year. He's not worth hanging onto in any format.
