2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ragland paired nicely with 2018 offseason acquisition Anthony Hitchens on the inside, recording 86 tackles (46 solo) and his first sack (albeit a half-sack) of his young career. With the Chiefs poised to switch to a 4-3 defense, Ragland may have the middle to himself next season, which will allow him to instill the thumper mentality he displayed at Alabama. For fantasy purposes, a rise in tackles and, subsequently, his fantasy value may be in store for the fourth-year linebacker. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $5.84 million contract with the Bills in May of 2016. Traded to the Chiefs in August of 2017.
Returns fumble for TD

October 18, 2019
Ragland had two solo tackles, a sack and returned a fumble five yards for a touchdown in Thursday's win over the Broncos.
ANALYSIS
The Chiefs terrorized Joe Flacco all evening as the team racked up nine sacks, and Ragland's scoop-and-score during the second quarter was about as easy as they come. The 26-year-old played only 25 of 67 defensive snaps Thursday, which is the first time he's played double-digit snaps on defense this season.

2016
Ragland hasn't gotten moving yet, but he is only three years removed from serving as one of the top players on a dominant Alabama defense, and it's easy to rationalize his disappointing presence since then as being caused by his rookie season knee injury and the arbitrary personnel shuffle resulting from a new Buffalo front office. Now in his second year with the Chiefs – and with longtime starter Derrick Johnson gone – it finally appears time to properly evaluate Ragland. You're betting on the pedigree plus opportunity here, but there's enough in those two variables to plunge ahead without a history of NFL production.
Ragland, who missed his rookie season with an ACL tear, was dealt to the Chiefs in late August, where the 2016 second-rounder will bolster his new team's linebacking corps.
Although Myles Jack somewhat understandably got the most hype of the rookie linebackers, it's Ragland who is the best bet to make an immediate IDP impact. He's a throwback thumper linebacker who fell to the second round due to low demand for big, in-traffic 'backers, but coach Rex Ryan has no qualms about using such players. If he had been drafted five years ago, Ragland likely would have been a first-round pick. Ragland will almost certainly start for Buffalo as a rookie, and there's a decent chance he could push for nickel snaps and a three-down role. UPDATE: Raglund will miss his entire rookie season due to a torn ACL.
