Additionally, Kuechly tied his career-high with four interceptions, and scored his first touchdown as well. Although Kuechly has managed just seven sacks through four campaigns, his weekly performances continue to make him an elite IDP option going forward, and his five-year contract signed in September ensures Kuechly will lead the Panthers' defense long-term.
Kuechly notched eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Kuechly is arguably the best middle linebacker in the game, and he provides exceptional value as and IDP.
Kuechly turned in a dominant performance in Thursday's win over the Cowboys, finishing with seven tackles and two interceptions -- with one going for a touchdown -- in The Carolina defense was responsible for 12 of the team's 33 points on the day, and it's no surprise that their star middle linebacker was the one behind it. While the production was more than helpful for those using Kuechly in IDP leagues, his continued decline in tackle production is a bit worrisome. He's now failed to notch double-digit stops in four consecutive games.
Kuechly notched eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's win over the Titans. Kuechly led the team in tackles on Sunday which is no surprise anymore, in fact it's a much bigger surprise if he doesn't. The All-Pro linebacker has been battling an ankle injury over the last week, but it didn't seem to bother him against the Titans. Kuechly is the best linebacker in the business, which makes him a great IDP play each and every week.
