J Lau landed with a thud with the Saints. Got benched and now IR'ed for the season.

Cook landed with a big thud with the Packers, too. Six receptions. Injured and hasn't played since week 3.

Chris Long is having a pretty fair season with the Patriots, however. Then again, it IS the Patriots.

And Long has tailed off...though as always he's an effort guy and represents himself well on the field. He has 1 sack in week 1 and 13 tackles & 8 assists in spite of playing 70.3% of defensive snaps (more than any other Pats defensive lineman). So while he's the best of the 3 you list, his production is really lagging.

This is interesting on that...from an article:

PATRIOTS THIRD-DOWN DEFENSE
NFC scouting director: “What they have is a bunch of guys in the clubhouse who play sound, disciplined football. But they don’t have that guy, like they did with Chandler Jones or Jamie Collins, who offensive coaches worry about. (Chris) Long doesn’t have the same juice anymore, (Rob) Ninkovich is an effort guy. (Jabaal) Sheard is solid, probably the most explosive guy, which doesn’t say much for them. So they have to do more to get guys home.

  Disagree, he needs to play about what he is, 70% or so
