2019 Fantasy Outlook
After two non-descript seasons to begin his career, Fackrell broke out in 2018, more than doubling his career sack total with 10.5 sacks. The Packers still elected to heavily address the rush linebacker position during the offseason, adding both Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith via free agency while selecting Rashan Gary 12th overall. Fackrell's showing last season figures to keep him in the mix at the position, but it's unlikely his snap count increases, and it will be hard for him to match last year's sack total if he does not secure a spot in the starting lineup.

Working as backup
LBGreen Bay Packers
September 6, 2019
Fackrell had two tackles in Thursday's victory over the Bears.
Fackrell broke out in 2018 with 10.5 sacks, but that did not stop the Packers from adding two high-priced pass rushers in Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith, and both played extensively Thursday while Fackrell was on the field for just 23 snaps. Fackrell will presumably remain behind both players on the depth chart as long as they stay healthy, and he could eventually lose more snaps to first-round pick Rashan Gary, who was on the field for just six plays Thursday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Fackrell was mainly a part-time player in 2017 for the second year in a row, but he did up his production later in the campaign, totaling 17 tackles and all three of his sacks over the final seven games. He will head into Week 1 in the same role as last year, but could find himself more involved at some point given the injury histories of starting OLBs Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.
Fackrell appears to be more of a long-term project for the Packers than immediate contributor. At press time, he is buried under not only Clay Matthews, Nick Perry and Julius Peppers on the teams OLB depth chart, but also the likes ofDatone Jones, Jayrone Elliott and street free agent Lerentee McCray. Ultimately, Fackrell doesn't seem poised for significant playing time in 2016 and can be completely forgotten in IDP leagues.
