Ogletree recorded a career-high 136 tackles during the 2016 season. Unfortunately, Ogletree slowed down at the end of the season and registered just 24 stops (18 solo tackles) through the final four games. Still, the 25-year-old linebacker was a high-end IDP option with a reliable fantasy floor outside of his underwhelming finish. Looking ahead to 2017, if Ogletree can provide more of the playmaking ability he's flashed at times throughout his first four seasons, the fantasy star could elevate his stock even higher.
Ogletree notched 12 tackles Sunday against the Rams. Ogletree has now registered double-digit tackles in each of his last two games, and he's averaging 10 over his last four contests. On the season, he hasn't had fewer than six stops in any game, and he's a rock-solid weekly IDP option.
Ogletree registered 11 tackles Sunday against the Dolphins. This was Ogletree's first game with double-digit tackles since Week 1, though he's posted at least nine tackles in six different games this season. He's been a solid, but unspectacular IDP option who's averaging 8.6 tackles per game, and he's also been credited with seven passes defensed.
Ogletree had 10 tackles (six solo) and an interception during Sunday's win over the Jets. A high tackle total is par for the course from Ogletree, but it was nice to see him reward fantasy owners with an interception Sunday. He has shown playmaking ability in the past, which provides nice upside alongside his weekly reliability in the tackle column. Ogletree remains a set-and-forget fantasy option.
Ogletree recorded nine tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Sunday was just more of the same from the fourth-year linebacker. Ogletree is up to 54 solo and 12 assisted tackles through eight games this year with five pass defenses, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He has shown some additional playmaking ability in the past with three career interceptions and 3.5 sacks, so there is upside for his high tackle totals to be padded with additional fantasy points going forward.
