News: Jefferson accumulated 10 tackles (eight solo) and one sack in Sunday's victory over the 49ers. Impact: Through three games, Jefferson has already surpassed his production as an undrafted rookie last year, when he totaled 24 tackles (19 solo) and nothing else. With 28 tackles on the ledger already, he's been consistent while holding down the strong safety spot intended for 2014 first-round pick Deone Bucannon (foot). Their respective snap counts Sunday -- 52-of-64 for Jefferson, versus Bucannon's 43, according to FOX Sports 910 Phoenix -- were much tighter than in Week 2 -- 70 versus 37, respectively -- meaning the situation will be one to watch going forward. In the meantime, though, Jefferson's performance seems to be enough to hold IDP relevance in numerous formats.(RotoWire, )
