Fletcher Cox had his biggest game of the season, picking up three sacks, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 39-17 win over the Saints.
Cox has long been adored by coaches and media types, but his stat sheet explosion against Drew Brees and the Saints could put him on the national radar for good. He dominated a depleted New Orleans offensive line, and has looked stronger with each week after a mediocre Week 1. He's an IDP with strong upside to keep an eye on. As the Philadelphia Eagles ' offense improves, the defense will see less extended time on the field, which means fewer drives like they one they allowed against Washington in Week 4 and more opportunities for Cox to burst through offensive lines.
Cox is entering his four season in Philadelphia, where he has missed just one game his career. Cox has totaled 109 tackles and 12 1/2 sacks in his three seasons with the club.
