We're through week five the NFL Season, and things are getting intense. There are a bunch of teams sitting just above to just below .500 still plenty in the hunt for division titles, and the playoffs. This is likely the case for most of you in the fantasy football world. At this point, if you have a win or two, you're still in the hunt for everything, but you are probably unhappy with how certain parts of your team are performing... If you are not happy with your linebacker play, your in the right place, as we have some help for you. We've found seven under-the-radar linebackers that are available in most IDP leagues who have talent and could produce some solid returns for an owner who has some holes in the middle of his/her defense. Take a look, and make some moves that could really produce wins going forward.
