2020 Fantasy Outlook
Littleton took on a big coverage burden with the Rams and mostly held up, making him appealing in free agency to any team that could use a coverage upgrade at linebacker. The Raiders qualified, so they signed Littleton to a three-year, $35 million deal, locking him into a three-down role in the process. With that, Littleton is assured both a high floor and ceiling. He made 259 tackles while playing 2,020 defensive snaps the last two years, adding significant production as a blitzer (7.5 sacks) and in coverage (five interceptions, 22 passes defended). There might be less of a target funnel toward Littleton with the Raiders because their corners are worse, but Littleton's consistent involvement in all of run defense, pass rush and coverage give him more production channels than the vast majority of linebackers.

Littleton (chest) is signing a three-year, $36 million contract with the Raiders, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
It's good money for an off-ball linebacker but nowhere close to what C.J. Mosley got from the Jets last offseason. Littleton was a 16-game starter for the Rams the past two seasons, piling up 259 tackles, 22 pass defenses, 7.5 sacks and five interceptions in that stretch. With Nick Kwiatkoski also on board, the Raiders appear to have successfully addressed their longstanding deficiency at the linebacker position. Littleton should maintain a three-down role and high-end IDP value.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The Rams ask Littleton to take on ambitious coverage assignments in addition to his leading role in run defense, affording him many opportunities to make tackles and big plays. Targeted a staggering 57 times last year in coverage, Littleton held his own and supplemented his 120-plus tackles with a strong showing as a blitzer and interception threat. While Littleton's production appears maxed out, his steady role means he shouldn't suffer too much regression. Teams will need to continue throwing to keep up with the Rams, and Littleton will be chasing.
Littleton started the last four games of 2017 and proved he's capable of the role, managing 25 tackles, one sack and one interception. He's expected to work in that role right of the bat in 2018 and could be a value option as he sits off of most fantasy radars.
