Van Noy posted a team-high seven tackles (six solo) and two sacks in Sunday's win over the Jets.
It was Van Noy's fourth straight game with at least seven tackles, and the linebacker has now recorded 3.5 sacks over his last three games. Van Noy was on the field for 65 of the team's 76 defensive snaps Sunday, and his production over the last few games on top of that usage rate is making him an intriguing IDP option.
Van Noy logged seven tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.
Van Noy's sacked Cam Newton just behind the line of scrimmage midway through the second quarter. The 26-year-old also continued his streak of playing every snap, as he has yet to miss one this season. His heavy usage makes him an IDP candidate in deeper formats.
In the process, Van Noy logged 11 total tackles, upping his total in that department to 21 over the Patriots' first three games. Van Noy hasn't missed a snap this season and given his current heavy workload, he's worthy of IDP consideration in deeper formats.
Van Noy was set to become a free agent after the season, but is now signed with New England through 2019. The 26-year-old played all 69 defensive snaps and recorded six tackles in the Patriots' season-opening loss the Chiefs on Thursday. New England loves the versatility Van Noy provides and plan to utilize him as both a prototypical linebacker and a pass rusher.
Van Noy heads to New England as the main backup to Shea McClellin after Jonathan Freeny (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve a little over a week ago. The 26-year-old has logged 23 tackles in seven games this season with the Lions. He could see fewer snaps this week against the Bills as he learns the playbook and gets accustomed to his new team.
