2018 Fantasy Outlook
Ebukam had a fine rookie season as a depth linebacker, generating 31 tackles and two sacks in 16 games. He's in line to be a starter in 2017-18 could be a mid-level contributor with upside on the pass rush. Projecting Ebukam's ceiling in a full season with starter snap counts is difficult, however, so fantasy owners may want to wait and see what he can do. Read Past Outlooks

March 22, 2019
Ebukam is recovering from a minor knee surgery and likely will be brought along slowly this spring, Gary Klein of The Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
The 2017 fourth-round pick started 14 of 16 games at outside linebacker in his second pro season, notching 40 tackles (25 solo), three sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception. It sounds like Ebukam will be healthy before the start of training camp, but he may face some competition for a starting job after the Rams signed Clay Matthews to a two-year, $9.25 million contract. It's also possible the Rams use Matthews and Ebukam as their starting OLBs, with Dante Fowler then coming off the bench to focus on rushing the passer. Regardless of how it shakes out, each of the three players should have an important role in Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense.
