Let's take a quick look at a few linebackers, defensive linemen, and defensive backs who are either good grab-and-stash types or those that you should target in trades. Hope you enjoy the article and it opens your eyes to some of the gems that can be found on your leagues' waiver wires!
Alex Anzalone (DET): I had my eye on Anzalone in the preseason, and so far he’s been inconsistent but has shown he can be a cheap source of tackles. Jamie Collins Sr can’t tackle everyone, so Anzalone playing next to him will prove to be a lower-end LB3 in most formats.
Mack Wilson (CLE): He’s still just 23, and has shown flashes of being an elite defender. There are tackles to be had for the Browns defense and no one appears to be stepping up just yet. If you have an open roster spot or just want to take a stab at a high-ceiling type of linebacker, Wilson fits the bill.
Damien Wilson (JAC): Myles Jack is the linebacker to own for the Jags, but if you’re looking to add some depth with a guy who won’t kill you during your bye weeks, Wilson can produce. We especially like a four-game stretch following their Week 7 bye; if you’re going to be hit by bye weeks during those weeks and want a plug-and-play LB3 in deeper formats, you can do worse than Wilson.
Zach Sieler (DE – MIA): There’s not a ton of flash here, but the big guy out of little-known Ferris State has popped up on our radar a few times over the past couple of years. He’s getting a good amount of snaps opposite Emmanuel Ogbah and has had a couple of decent outings to start the season.
