Littleton took advantage of an early-season injury to Mark Barron and remained a mainstay at inside linebacker throughout the 2018 campaign, finishing with the highest share of defensive snaps (95.4 percent) among all Rams defenders. The preceding allowed Littleton to lead the team in tackles (125) while also contributing four sacks and three interceptions (one pick-six). His representation can negotiate with other teams, but if he receives a contract elsewhere the Rams will have a chance to match the offer, or receive a second-round pick as compensation.
Littleton recorded 12 tackles (11 solo) during Sunday's 26-23 overtime win against the Saints.
The second-year linebacker emerged as a reliable fantasy contributor this season with 125 tackles (90 solo), four sacks and three interceptions. He also started all 16 games and earned his first invitation to the Pro Bowl. Littleton could have difficulty repeating his 2018 statistics next year, but he definitely silenced any preseason concerns surrounding his ability to play and succeed on Sundays. Just note that he's set to become a free agent after the Super Bowl, so his fantasy value will be up in the air until he signs a new contract.
Littleton had 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Eagles.
Littleton reached double-digit tackles for the first time since Week 7, though he continues to lead the team with 112 tackles (80 solo). The 25-year-old also has four sacks and an interception in his first season as a full-time starter.
Littleton was able to suit up for 100 percent of the defensive snaps and 26 percent of the special teams' snaps Monday. He continues to swarm to the ball with an 8.3 tackle per game average this season. The Washington product should continue to be a strong IDP candidate following the Rams' upcoming bye week.
Littleton recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one pass defensed across 67 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.
Littleton continues to be a driving force on the Rams' defense, as his season-tackle count climbs to 84 -- third most in the league. The second-year man was once again on the field for 100 percent of the Rams' defensive snaps Sunday, a recurring trend this season that warrants him an ideal IDP candidate.
