I'm looking for a LB3 between Micah Kiser (LAR) and AJ Johnson (DEN). My league starts 2 LB and has an IDP flex as well. Points are pretty standard.
I like both of these guys as under the radar options on teams with a strong DL that will give them freedom to operate. They are both replacing guys who put up good numbers last year. And it appears as though both are 3 down backers.
I'm leaning towards Kiser because he seems to be the more athletic of the 2. I think that may give him more options in coverage like PD, INT and tackles.
I'd go Johnson. He was productive last year and graded out as a top 5 LB by PFF. The team trusts him enough to run the defense that they cut Todd Davis. I like Kiser as well but he has more question marks around him and is more unproven.
