  • Frostee Rucker DL - ARI
    • Wed, Jan 17, 5:31pm

      Rucker totaled 29 tackles (23 solo) and 1.5 sacks in 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Rucker signed a one-year deal last spring and improved upon his sackless 2016 season. Retirement is certainly a viable consideration for the 34-year-old at this point, and he is likely to be limited to a rotational role if he does return for the 2018 season, which he enters as a free agent.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Bynes put together a solid two-game stretch in Weeks 12 and 13 with 17 tackles (16 solo), but failed to garner a significant defensive role through most of the season. The 28-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals last spring and is slated to become an unrestricted free agent.

  • Dontari Poe DL - ATL
    • Wed, Jan 17, 4:41pm

      Poe produced 39 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two pass breakups over 16 games in 2017.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: After making a name as a premier defensive tackle during his five years with the Chiefs, Poe bolted for Atlanta on a one-year deal this past offseason and fared well with his new team, finishing with positive marks as both a pass rusher and run defender per Pro Football Focus. However, his statistical production expectedly remained modest while playing along within the interior of the defensive line. His fantasy value in 2018 will certainly depend on what team he signs with, but it's unlikely Poe becomes much of an IDP factor given the nature of his position.
