Have both rostered but WW is calling with some talented guys avail

Darron Lee
Darius Leonard
Jordan Hicks
Cory Littleton

Lee looked good as did Littleton. Bot were all over the field. Think Leonard is in for a huge year as that def will be on the field A LOT! Same likely true for Oakland as well. Wonder if Ogletree ever returns to what he was.

Yeah they are on the WW... its a redraft with shallow bench and only start two LBs.

Like Leonard and Lee for some reason. Leaning dropping Whitehead for Leonard and trying to talk myself into keeping Ogletree just not super high on him for some reason.

Yeah, this is a bit like asking which 2x WR will go off and then listing players like: J.Brown, J.Ross, N.Agholor, P.Garcon

All we can do is tell you they are all good players in good/ decent situations.

Best thing i can suggest is ask yourself a few questions:

    1) Which LBs team is likely to be on the field the most - ie their O is not good (which means + Snaps vs his peers, which is better)
    2) WhichLB plays the most %age of their teams D snaps (again +Snaps vs peers)
    3) Which LB plays behind a soft DL (increases %age chance of tkl opps)
    4) <Weekly> Which LB will be facing the run/ short passes

Season long you want the guy that will play the most.

Weekly, you want the guy that will have the highest %age of tkl opps.

Those two things wont necessarily be one and the same thing because if the LBs teams O goes up early a cpl scores? Hes going to be far less involved than in a close game where the opposition keeps sending the RB up the middle.

I would suggest Lee or Littleton, then Leonard, then Hicks if youre going for post season.

Indy - whilst a fertile hunting ground for IDP production - is in flux. Philly can be as strange with their LB usage as their DL.

If youre looking longer term, id put Leonard in with the other two and push Hicks further back.
