The centerpiece of the Panthers defense is also considered by many to be the best linebacker in Fantasy Football and potentially the only player to challenge J.J. Watt as the best IDP. In three years, Luke Kuechly has posted at least 150 total tackles (at least 93 solo) with a handful of sacks, a good amount of passes defensed and the occasional interception. There's no reason to expect a decline in numbers from Kuechly -- this is one of the safest picks you could make in Fantasy. Assuming tackles count in your league, Kuechly will probably get selected no more than 10 picks after Watt in most drafts as the No. 1 overall linebacker. Expect it at some point after the top 60 or so choices.
