News: Kendricks finished 2014 with 83 tackles (62 solo), four sacks, and three forced fumbles in 12 games.
Impact: Aside from a calf injury that cost him four games, Kendricks' 2014 was a success by IDP standards. He finally took the next step in his development and used his rare speed and disruptiveness to establish a consistent presence behind the line of scrimmage, making 10 tackles for loss as a blitz-heavy inside linebacker. Kendricks posted his numbers over just 761 snaps, so if you project his stats over 1,000 snaps -- a safe figure for a three-down linebacker like him in a 16-game season -- his production would project to the range of 110 tackles and six sacks. He'll probably go at an LB2 price in most IDP drafts next year, but he has the potential to offer LB1 numbers, especially if your league rewards heavily for sacks.
