2019 Fantasy Outlook
Schobert's three-down role should be safe with Jamie Collins gone, which means he basically can't fail his IDP owners. Schobert has 247 tackles in his last 1,969 snaps, and he was on pace to play more than 1,100 snaps if not for a three-week hamstring injury last year. Schobert's floor, therefore, appears to be in the 125-tackle range, with 140 plausible as well. In addition to the strong tackle production, Schobert provided his owners three sacks both of the last two years, and in what could be a ruthless Cleveland pass rush he should continue the strong work.

Leads team with 13 tackles
LBCleveland Browns
January 2, 2019
Schobert compiled 13 tackles (10 solo) during Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Ravens.
Schobert ended the 2018 campaign with 103 total tackles, good enough for second on the team. He finished just a tackle behind fellow linebacker Jamie Collins. With two consecutive seasons with 100-plus tackles, the third-year man out of Wisconsin has turned into a dominant and reliable IDP play. Schobert, along with Christian Kirksey and Jamie Collins, should once again form a formidable trio in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Schobert went wild last year, following up a rookie season of mostly special teams work with one of the league's top tackle totals. With a versatile skill set and the ability to play inside or out, Schobert should be a formidable presence for the long haul. The question in the meantime is whether he can reach the heights of last season even if Jamie Collins is healthy. Collins only played six games last year due to a concussion and, later, an MCL tear. Schobert should breeze past triple-digit tackles again, but he might have to do it on 850 snaps instead of 1,072.
Schobert logged 28 tackles in his rookie campaign in 2016, and the linebacker will look to build on that this season, as a back up to Jamie Collins. Collins is a former Pro Bowler and considered one of the best at his craft, so it may be difficult for Schobert to make an impact as long as he’s behind Collins on the depth chart.
