Kyzir White Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Eagles insider Adam Caplan said this week that according to "multiple sources" and "my own eyes," LB Kyzir White was the best player on the field in joint practices with the Browns. White signed a 1-year deal in free agency with Philly, looks poised to start and appears to be the strongest candidate to lead the group in snaps. Rookie Nakobe Dean, meanwhile, remains behind at least T.J. Edwards. There's certainly room for Dean to climb the depth chart this season, but we'd pass on him in redraft outside of deep IDP leagues.

The Eagles have been running Kyzir White and T.J. Edwards as the top LBs with the 1st defense in training camp. Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that rookie Nakobe Dean worked in for some 1st-team snaps. The team is also reportedly experimenting with S K'Von Wallace taking some sub-package snaps. We'd bet the Eagles will continue using the preseason to settle out their defensive lineup. White looks like the best current bet to see full playing time among LBs. Dean's quick progression up the depth chart at Georgia -- along with his physical ability -- makes him a player worth betting on. Edwards would carry some IDP value if he hits the regular season as the #2 LB and appears headed for near-full playing time. We'll continue watching how the situation develops.

The Eagles have agreed to a 1-year deal with LB Kyzir White that can be worth up to $5 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. White led Chargers LBs in playing time last year, so his departure leaves opportunity in a corps that has seen former 1st-round LB Kenneth Murray disappoint through 2 seasons. The money he's getting in Philly doesn't guarantee full-time status, but it looks bigger than the $2.2 million, 1-year extension the Eagles gave T.J. Edwards in November. White looks like a good bet for 3-down duty vs. the current depth chart. We wouldn't be surprised to see Philly draft an early-round LB, though.

The Chargers have ruled LB Drue Tranquill out for Sunday's game at Baltimore with a chest injury. S Nasir Adderley is questionable with a hip injury. We'll update his status Sunday morning. Tranquill's absence should make Kyzir White a good bet to lead Chargers LBs in playing time and tackles.

Chargers LB Kenneth Murray suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's practice and is questionable for Monday night's game against the Raiders. A healthy Murray played just 51% of the snaps in Week 3, so he should be easy to leave out of your Week 4 IDP lineup. Kyzir White becomes a better play, after leading Chargers LBs in snaps last week.

The Chargers have placed LB Kyzir White on IR with a yet-to-be-announced injury. That clears the way for Nick Vigil to join Kenneth Murray as the team's top 2 LBs for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

The Chargers activated LB Kyzir White off the COVID list Saturday, and he is active for today's game against the Falcons. White figures to rejoin Kenneth Murray as the top 2 Chargers LBs for playing time.

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said this week that MLB Denzel Perryman is now healthy enough to return to his starting role in the middle, which includes calling the defensive plays. “I thought that he looked his best (in practice this week) since he came back from the surgery, to be honest with you,” Lynn told the Orange County Register. “He’s going to play.” LB Kyzir White looks like the player who's playing time will suffer. “Kyzir, he’s doing a heck of a job, but he has a lot to learn,” Lynn said. “He’s still learning. It’s just, now that Denzel is up to speed, we’re going to get him back in there because we’re different when he’s in the game versus the run. Kyzir will still get some reps, but not as many.” We've knocked White out of the Week 3 LB rankings and added Perryman. The veteran is still risky for IDP use, though. Even at full health, he has historically left the field for passing sub packages. Thomas Davis remains the Chargers LB to use.

The Chargers will be without LB Jatavis Brown (groin) and LB Kyzir White (knee) for today's game against the Browns. That leaves the defense down to its #3 weak-side LB, with only Denzel Perryman as an IDP option in the LB corps.

The Chargers have ruled LB Kyzir White out for Sunday's game against the 49ers with a knee injury. That could mean a starting spot for Jatavis Brown on Sunday. No Chargers LB makes for a strong IDP play, though.
