Lee recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 48-32 loss to the Rams.
Lee got another start alongside Fred Warner, and the youngster posted double-digit tackles for the third consecutive week. It is apparent that the 23-year-old has become the full-time starter over veteran Malcolm Smith. The two will likely compete for the starting weak-side linebacker role during camp next season, but if performance this year ends up deciding the battle, then Lee should clearly be the front-runner and the preferred IDP option.
Lee wrapped up 12 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's 14-9 loss to the Bears.
Lee earned another start alongside Fred Warner and performed admirably. The 22-year-old put his speed on display, tracking down Chicago runners and playing a big role in the 49ers' containment of the Bears' talented backs (3.2 YPC). Lee should make one more start against the Rams on Sunday, but he has done enough to make a strong bid for a starting job in camp next season.
Lee started at weak-side linebacker and recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 26-23 victory over Seattle.
With the 49ers out of contention, Lee was given the start alongside Fred Warner over veteran Malcolm Smith for the second straight week. The 22-year-old performed well, reaching double-digit tackles for the second time this season. Lee has shown a nose for the ball when called upon, recording 33 tackles and a sack in the four games he has logged over 50 percent of the club's defensive snaps. Following this strong performance, there is no reason to think the youngster won't earn another start against the Bears in Week 16.
Lee started and recorded 12 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Lee made his first start with the 49ers with several linebackers held out of action. The 22-year-old performed admirably in a pinch, but his role is set to be reduced with Reuben Foster returning from suspension next week. Lee could still start right outside linebacker if Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is unable to go, but he would likely come off the field in nickel and dime packages, limiting his IDP appeal.
