Ragland notched 86 tackles (46 solo), a half-sack and an interception during 2018.
Ragland was limited to just 12 games and 323 defensive snaps as a rookie, but both of those numbers increased to 16 and 581 in 2018. He's still removed from the field when the defense utilizes nickel and dime packages, preventing Ragland from matching the likes of Anthony Hitchens, who totaled 945 defensive snaps. With both returning next season, prospective fantasy owners shouldn't anticipate another jump in production during Ragland's third season.

Ragland logged double-digit tackles in a single game for the first time this season. The third-year linebacker benefited from a matchup against Seattle's run-heavy offense, and he now has 80 tackles across 15 games this year.
Ragland (knee) returned to practice Sunday.
Ragland opened up training camp on the non-football injury list after his knee swelled up, and he missed the first eight days of training camp as a result. The injury was never believed to be that serious, so Ragland should begin being a full participant in training camp this week.
