Changing teams couldn't stop Buckner from landing among the top 8 fantasy linemen for the 3rd straight season last year. And it might have even helped.
Buckner's 9.5 sacks fell right in line with the previous 2 seasons. His 26 QB hits marked a career high, though, and a jump of 12 vs. his 2019 total. And that came despite Buckner missing a game.
He lost line mate Denico Autry to Tennessee in free agency, but the team is reportedly high on Tyquan Lewis stepping into the role Autry leaves behind.
More importantly, Buckner is just 1 of the league's best DTs -- and likely 1 of the top D-linemen in general. Keep betting on him.
If you play in a DT-required league, Buckner puts up a strong case to be the 1st lineman drafted. There are only 2 DTs within 16 fantasy points of our baseline projection for Buckner. The first of those -- Chris Jones -- is expected to play a lot more at DE this year, which adds a challenge to his outlook.
