2017 Player Movement Tracker: Linebackers

Players acquired by new teams:

Jelani Jenkins (LB, signed by Oak from Mia) – Jenkins switches coasts as a possible replacement for Malcolm Smith.

Fantasy Analysis: Back in 2014, Jenkins was a speedy LB2/LB3, putting up 108 tackles and averaging 7.1 FPG. Since then, he’s battled injuries and the inconsistency that usually is bred from injuries. He hasn’t played a full 16-game season since that promising 2014 campaign. But Jenkins is still young – just 25 – and if he can stay healthy and keep his legs underneath him, he would be a great fit to replace Malcolm Smith as the WILL. Smith was a solid LB2 in his time in Oakland, and Jenkins is faster and better in coverage. A risky draft pick, Jenkins could prove to be a sneaky LB2/LB3 if he makes it to Week One healthy, and happens to stay that way for most of the year.

Manti Te’o (LB, signed by NO from SD) – Te’o will join a gaggle of LBs vying for playing time in New Orleans.
