NEVER WAIVER: REST-OF-SEASON FREE AGENTS

DEFENSIVE TACKLES
Note: Ranked outside Top 10 owned DTs on MyFantasyLeague

Joseph Linval, New York Giants
Linval is always an injury concern; however, in his first four games of the year, he's already totaled 19 combined tackles, a half sack and three TFLs.

Michael Brockers, St. Louis Rams
With offensive lines forced to pay so much attention to Chris Long and Robert Quinn, Brockers has become a terror in the middle for the Rams' defense.

DEFENSIVE ENDS
Note: Ranked outside Top 20 owned DEs on MyFantasyLeague

Shea McClellin, Chicago Bears
Injuries have created more playing time for McClellin along Chicago's defensive front. The second-year end fared well last week, totaling four total tackles, two assists and one TFL.

Ahtyba Rubin, Cleveland Browns
Rubin is actually listed at defensive end in most leagues, so it was a mistake to list him as a DT last week. That said, few players have his kind of ceiling, just look at his numbers from a few years back.

LINEBACKERS
Note: Ranked outside Top 30 owned LBs on MyFantasyLeague

A.J. Hawk, Green Bay Packers
An still-unknown injury to Brad Jones could give Hawk his old job back. An admirable LB3/LB4 in most leagues.

Moise Fokou, Tennessee Titans
Fokou has really blossomed into his role in recent weeks. Over his last three contests, he's averaged about eight combined tackles per game and should really breakout in Week 6 against Seattle..

CORNERBACKS
Note: Ranked outside Top 15 owned CBs on MyFantasyLeague

Josh Robinson, Minnesota Vikings
At the NFL Combine two years ago, Robinson made a name for himself by running the fastest 40-yard dash time. That speed likely blessed him last week as he somehow managed 12 solo tackles and one TF

Aqib Talib, New England Patriots
The Patriots injuries along their front seven is creating more tackle opporunities upfield to WRs. Talib tallied five solo tackles last week.

SAFETIES
Note: Ranked outside Top 20 owned Ss on MyFantasyLeague

Nate Allen, Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles' inability to stop anybody on defense means their backend defenders have to stay busy cleaning up the mess left ahead of them. Allen has been one of those key contributors, having already contributed 34 combined tackles and a sack.

Dashon Goldson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Goldson can do much more than simply hit guys hard over the middle. He has 28 combined tackles for a team still searching for a W. He should have lots of tackle opportunities in garbage time if these losses continue to pile up.
