When healthy, Blake Martinez has been one of the top IDP linebackers. The only active player to record two seasons with 96 or more solo tackles since 2016, he is as consistent as they come. Martinez leads the NFL in solo tackles over the past three seasons and should find himself a weekly fixture atop the leaderboard despite playing for a new team. Facing the Steelers in Week 1 should afford Martinez plenty of opportunities against both the run and the pass, as the Giants should see a heavy dose of the run in a contest they are projected to be trailing in.Jaylon Smith should be busy against a Rams offense that likes to run and move the ball via short passes before taking their shots. Smith ranked 10th in the league in solo tackles last season and projects to have a productive night against Los Angeles.
