Aaron Donald News
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.
After a flurry of offseason additions, the Los Angeles Rams defense has rapidly ascended up the rankings of fantasy defenses. A key piece of that is defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who continues his holdout. Per head coach Sean McVay, there is no end in sight, which could extend into the regular season. The Rams have gone about extending various other pieces in recent weeks, but Donald remains playing on his rookie contract. In addition to a weakness at outside linebacker, the defensive line will need some additional support if Donald misses any time. If he returns, the Rams remain a good top-five unit in both fantasy and real defense.
Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead said that the team and defensive tackle Aaron Donald are "in the same zip code, area code, ballpark" in contract extension talks. Donald continues to hold out with no end in sight, but this at least sounds like some progress is being made. The 27-year-old Donald is an elite defensive tackle that has accumulated 39 sacks in his four seasons. Eventually something should be worked out.
