RISING

Dontari Poe, (3-4) NT, KC


It’s rare for a 3-4 nose tackle to become a fantasy factor, but it looks like Poe is the sort of talent who can do just that. He’s been one of the league’s top defenders through the first two weeks of the year, and his incredible combination of size and athleticism (4.98-second 40-yard dash at 6-foot-3, 346 pounds) is translating into total dominance on the interior of Kansas City’s offense line. He lit up the Jaguars in Week 1 for six tackles (five solo) and 1.5 sacks, then he sacked Tony Romo twice in Week 2 while adding four more solo stops. Poe appears to have realistic DL1 potential this year, and he should be owned in all IDP leagues until further notice.
