Bobby Wagner Player Overview

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Wagner has finished 4 straight seasons among fantasy's top 5 LBs, including a pair of #2 rankings. No other LB has joined him in that territory for the entire span.

Wagner led the league in tackles in 2019, his 2nd time doing so in 4 years. In between, he also led the NFL in solos once. Seattle also increased Wagner's pass-rushing chances last season, from 48 and 56 the previous 2 years to 91, according to Pro Football Focus. Hence the rebound to 3 sacks after seasons of 1.0 and 1.5. The boost in that category returned Wagner to his 2016 pass-rushing role.

This year's Seahawks appear ready to hit the season without DEs Jadeveon Clowney and Ezekiel Ansah. The latter didn't offer much help in 2019, thanks primarily to offseason shoulder surgery. Clowney supplied only 3 sacks, but his 48 total pressures tied for 32nd among all edge players.

With Bruce Irvin, Benson Mayowa, L.J. Collier and Darrell Taylor looking like the top 4 edge options, Wagner should factor heavily into this year's pass rush as well.

Wagner, of course, has also defensed 23 passes over the past 3 years. The guy does it all, making him the best LB pick beyond Darius Leonard.
