News: Kuechly managed 11 tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 24-7 win over the Lions. Impact: Kuechly now boasts 20 tackles through two weeks this season, which perfectly matches his career average of 10 stops per game. In addition to nearly being credited with a forced fumble, the third-year linebacker defended two passes Sunday, further displaying his versatility. The leader of the Panthers' stout defense, Kuechly will go against the Steelers next Sunday night.(RotoWire, )

News: Kuechly recorded nine tackles (seven solo), one forced fumble, and one sack in Sunday's Week 1 win over Tampa Bay. Impact: Kuechly tied for Carolina's team lead in total tackles and also took down opposing quarterback Josh McCown to boost his fantasy performance Sunday. In fact, following just two regular season sacks last year, Kuechly unsurprisingly already seems destined to set a new career-high this time around. Along with forcing a fumble that Carolina recovered, Kuechly also tipped a pass that resulted in a Panthers interception on Sunday. In short, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is an elite IDP option that at least nears double-digit tackles on a weekly basis and can impact the box score elsewhere as well.(RotoWire, )
