The Cardinals have agreed to a 1-year, $8.5 million deal with LB De'Vondre Campbell, according to Drew Rosenhaus' agency. That likely installs Campbell as the ILB starter next to Jordan Hicks, a spot that saw Haason Reddick and Joe Walker take turns last season. Campbell finished 12th among fantasy LBs in 2019 (depending on your scoring format). Don't bet on a repeat of that. But Reddick did open 2019 performing as a top-20 fantasy LB, which displays the upside to Campbell's likely new role. Expect him to land in mid-to-high LB3 territory in our 2020 IDP rankings. Reddick, meanwhile, looks like a safe drop in most dynasty leagues. He has yet to sustain a starting role through 3 years, and the Cardinals have moved on from the coaching staff that was around when Arizona drafted him in Round 1.
The Falcons have ruled rookie LB De'Vondre Campbell out for Sunday's game at Oakland because of an ankle injury he suffered in practice Thursday. That will leave Sean Weatherspoon starting in place of the guy who led all Falcons LBs in snaps played last week. Weatherspoon carries some low-end IDP appeal. Campbell's absence also might help Raiders TE Clive Walford a bit. Atlanta views Campbell as key to their TE coverage.
