Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald was named the Associated Press 2018 Defensive Player of the Year on Saturday. Donald has now won the award in back-to-back seasons and was also the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2014. He led the league with 20.5 sacks in 2018 and also recorded 59 tackles, two fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles. He'll try to slow down Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday. At just 27 years old, Donald is by far and away the most disruptive pass rusher in the NFL these days.
Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead confirmed head coach Sean McVay's optimism that the team is close to reaching a long-term contract extension with defensive tackle Aaron Donald. Donald has 204 tackles, 39 sacks, nine forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in his first four seasons in the league, showing that he's one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL. He's also one of the big reasons why the Rams defense is one of the first off the board in fantasy drafts.
Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is arguably the best defensive player in the NFL. Head coach Sean McVay was very optimistic on Tuesday that Donald could be ready for the season opener after holding out for a contract extension. He instantly upgrades their pass rush while increasing their ability to create turnovers. Fumbles and interceptions are normally worth two points in fantasy. Donald makes this team a top-five fantasy defense. It's rare for fantasy players to keep a defense for the entire season. However, players could do much worse than keeping the Rams.
