RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Brockers isn't flashy, but he does a nice job plugging up the middle so Aaron Donald can rush the quarterback a little more. With the addition of Nick Fairley, Brockers may see his playing time decrease a little, but the Rams will cycle him, Fairley and Donald to keep them fresh at all times.
Brockers has had an excellent start to his NFL career, amassing 77 tackles and 9.5 sacks in two years as a defensive tackle. It helps that he has two beasts at defensive end in Robert Quinn and Chris Long to help keep offensive linemen busy. It's tough to be a solid IDP as an interior defensive lineman, but Brockers is about as solid as they come in an NFL defensive tackle.
Brockers recorded 31 tackles (20 solo) and four sacks during his rookie season and is consider one of the better young defensive tackles in the league. However, his fantasy value is limited by his low tackle total.
Brockers is expected to start the season as the club's starting left defensive tackle alongside free agent pick-up Kendall Langford.
