Timmons totaled six tackles (five solo) against Denver on Sunday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Timmons had a team high 119 tackles (77 solo), including five sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in 2015. Timmons led the resurgence of the Steelers' defense, which finished third in the league with 48 sacks, matching their total from 2010 when they last made it to the Super Bowl. Timmons, who turns 30 this off season, extended his streak of consecutive regular season games played to 104, which is the fourth longest active consecutive games played streak among NFL linebackers. He should continue to be worthy of fantasy consideration in IDP leagues in 2016.

Timmons notched 10 tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Timmons was very impressive on Sunday on a day where the Steelers' defense held the Browns to just nine points. Now in his ninth season, Timmons sits on 73 tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception. The Steelers' defense has given up 16 points or less in four of the last five games, and Timmons is a big reason for the recent success. He'll hold solid IDP value at the linebacker position moving forward.
