LB - LAR
Week 7 Outlook
Samson Ebukam recorded three solo tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 7 destruction of the San Francisco 49ers.
Ebukam's production to this point hasn't matched his play on the field, but a breakout could come any time. Stash him if you have room, keep an eye on him if you don't.
LB Samson Ebukam recorded three solo tackles and two assisted tackles in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 5 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
Ebukam has been fairly quiet since a nice debut in Week 1, with the exception of a sack in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. He played well in this one, though, racking up five total tackles from the outside linebacker position. Ebukam has looked great on film, but it hasn't translated to production to this point. Keep an eye on him, because he could break out anytime.
Rams' LB Samson Ebukam recorded one solo tackle and one sack in their Week 2 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Ebukam didn't light up the stat sheet in this one, but he continued to play extremely well and his presence was felt all over the field. He got good pressure on the QB from both the blind side and strong side, and almost had two more sacks. He also set the edge well in the run game, and read the screen game well. The statistics will come for Ebukam if the opportunities are there.
Rams' LB Samson Ebukam had three solo tackles and one assisted tackle in their Week 1 matchup against the Raiders.
The stat sheet doesn't tell the story in this one, as Ebukam played well against the run and in coverage, and also got consistent pressure on Raiders' QB Derek Carr in pass-rush situations. Ebukam made a nice open-field tackle for minimal gain on a flare pass to Raiders' RB Marshawn Lynch in the flat. He also had good penetration in the backfield to tackle Lynch for a big loss, and helped tackle Raiders' WR Jordy Nelson for a minimal gain on a screen in the red zone. Ebukam showed exceptional effort all game long, frequently hustling back down the field to get in on the action after the ball was thrown and the play developed behind him. If Ebukam continues to play the way he did in Week 1, the fantasy production will follow.
