DT - FA
Week 7 Outlook
Bennie Logan has signed on with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal. This all but ends Dontari Poe's time in Kansas City as the Chiefs will likely move on from Poe for financial reasons.
Let's make one thing clear: Logan is not Dontari Poe. However, Logan has 5.5 sacks in his career and will provide a one-year fill-in with the Chiefs likely to look into the draft for their next Poe.
Bennie Logan is now in his third year with the Eagles and he is aggressively getting better and better each game. He had 4 solo tackles, an assist, a sack and 3 tackle for losses in Sunday's game against the Saints.
Logan is primarily listed as a DT in most IDP leagues and is a nice option in the leagues that require to start a DT. He now has 15 solo tackles, 11 assists and a sack in the teams first 5 games.
"Bennie has just really been a disruptive force in the run game for us," coach Chip Kelly said Aug. 31. "I think he's been difficult to block in all three of these preseason games [he played], is causing a lot of havoc, getting penetration into the backfield, and disrupting the timing of plays. . . . I think he's played really well and may be playing as well as anybody on our defensive line right now."
Bennie Logan was a third round pick back in 2013 and ever since has quietly just did his job for the Eagles defensive line. All signs are pointing to Logan to have a big breakout year in his third season with the Eagles. In IDP leagues that require you to roster a DT, Logan could be a sneaky play and can be drafted very late.
Philly NT Bennie Logan had 3 combined tackles in the 26-21 loss at the 49ers on Sunday. The Philadelphia defensive line was one of the lone bright spots.
It's hard to continue to rack up stats on a game-by-game basis as a DT, but Logan has gone from waiver wire material to somebody worth being rostered.
