Avril forced a fumble and registered two sacks in Week 6.

Avril has been successful in getting to the opposing quarterback in each of the last two weeks, and he now has four sacks on the season. In addition, he's forced a fumble in each of the last two contests, further increasing his fantasy value. The only time he's recorded more than nine sacks in the season was when he had 11 of them back in 2011 when he was a member of the Lions. He's currently on pace to set a new career high, and when throwing in the forced fumbles, he's shaping up to be a great option in IDP leagues.
