A free agency signing in 2019, Za'Darius Smith combined with Preston Smith to record an astounding 29.5 sacks in 2019. In 2020, a predictable regression occurred. Still, Za'darius Smith was able to net 12.5 sacks, which put him among the top five sack leaders in the NFL. A rush linebacker who will be limited in the number of tackles he records, Smith will not hold as much value in traditional IDP leagues. In formats in which big plays and sacks are generously rewarded, he could get a bump that makes him a viable LB2 or LB3 starter if you play multiple linebackers in your lineup.
