2019 Fantasy Outlook
A 14-game starter in 2018, Ebukam collected 40 tackles (25 solo) and three sacks in his second season in the league. He's projected to be ready to return for Week 1 following offseason knee surgery in March, but hasn't suited up for Los Angeles' first two preseason games. Additionally, the Rams have three pass rushers at outside linebacker with Clay Matthews joining the team as a free agent, and Dante Fowler re-signing a one-year deal. Ebukam's upside in IDP settings is likely capped as a result. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $3.01 million contract with the Rams in June of 2017.
Finishes with 4.5 sacks
LBLos Angeles Rams
January 8, 2020
Ebukam had 48 tackles (26 solo), 4.5 sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 16 games this season.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old started five games but mostly worked as a rotational edge rusher. Ebukam got off to a slow start and didn't have a sack through Week 11, but he recorded 4.5 sacks over the last six games. Ebukam is under contract for one more season and could see a larger role in 2020 if Dante Fowler goes elsewhere in free agency, though the team could still make an addition at outside linebacker via the draft or free agency.

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 2018 and 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.
