DetroitLions.com's Tim Twentyman thinks Tahir Whitehead could surpass 100 tackles this season.
The strong favorite for the starting middle linebacker job following the departure of Stephen Tulloch, Whitehead is in a great position to rack up counting stats. A three-down linebacker, he notched 91 tackles in 2014 while filling in for an injured Tulloch for 13 games. He is a solid sleeper in IDP formats. Jun 24 - 9:26 AM
