Aaron Donald, DT, Rams
This guy can’t be available in any leagues that actually play with linemen, right? Well, I’ve learned not to take anything for granted with this list over the years.
I would be willing to bet that there are folks dropping Donald this week, now that he has finished his 3rd straight game without a sack. If that happens in your league, go get him. (Donald, that is. Not your league mate.)
L.A.’s star DT notched another 2 QB hits Sunday at Tampa to give him 7 through 3 games. That puts him on pace for 37.3 over 16 games. Donald finished last season 2nd in the league with 37 QB hits, trailing only J.J. Watt.
In other words, he’s getting after the QB just like last year. He just hasn’t happened to convert any sacks yet. They’re coming.
