You've probably already seen our 2018 DL rankings (including some updates today), but do the projections really tell the story of where separation lies?
Khalil Mack's continue absence leaves us questioning his rank. J.J. Watt's health will remain a question until we see him in season. And plenty other question marks reside throughout the position.
So who should you target and where? Let's get into that with this tiers for fantasy football drafts.
Joey Bosa, DE, Chargers
Chandler Jones, DE, Cardinals
Khalil Mack, DE, Raiders
Myles Garrett, DE, Browns
As of this writing, the news on Mack is that other teams are asking about him -- not that the Raiders are nearing a deal or that he's back on the field. So I'd still draft him this weekend. But I wouldn't do so with Bosa and Jones on the board. Honestly ... right now ... I might have a hard time on draft night selecting Mack over Garrett. There's clearly no shortage of upside to either guy.
Overall, this group presents 4 players capable of leading the league in sacks while also delivering strong tackle production.
Melvin Ingram, DE, Chargers
J.J. Watt, DE, Texans
Cameron Jordan, DE, Saints
