Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Last season's usage left us a little unsure of how the Dolphins valued Baker. But they erased all doubt with a 3-year, $37.5 million extension in June ($20 million of that guaranteed).

The iffy part was a playing time pattern that saw Baker go from full time through 6 weeks down below 80%, to 59% and a low point of 31% in Week 11. But that turned around and returned to full playing time or the final 4 games.

There was no shortage of production when he was on the field. Most notable was the increased pass-rushing production. His opportunities didn't grow all that much. Baker went from rushing on 12.4% of his defensive snaps in 2019 to 15.5% of them last year, according to Pro Football Focus. He posted just 1 more total pressure. But he went from 2 to 8 sacks and earned a higher PFF grade in that category.

Miami dumping LB Kyle Van Noy -- who saw more pass-rushing opportunities than anyone else in the off-ball LB category -- might boost Baker's opportunities further. But the most important factor is the rebound in overall playing time.

Baker checked in 20th and 15th among fantasy LBs the past 2 years, respectively. So he's heading in the right direction. We like the chances that he'll continue ascending.
