Ford forced a fumble, recorded two sacks and notched five tackles Sunday against the Raiders.

Ford has recorded at least half a sack in three different matchups, and he now has 3.5 on the season. He's half a sack short of his 2015 total, and it's looking as if the third-year linebacker is starting to reach the potential that the Chiefs saw in him when selecting him in the first round of the 2014 draft. In addition, after posting low tackle numbers to start the season, he's shown improvement by recording 11 of them over the last two contests. Despite his tackle numbers, his ability to get to the quarterback makes him a player to target in IDP leagues. It'll be interesting to see what his role will be if and when Justin Houston (knee) returns, which could happen sometime next month.
