12. Kyle Van Noy, Edge

Kyle Van Noy’s career-high in sacks is 6.5. He has six for the Ravens, and he signed during the season. Also, he has five games to beat his career-high. What a season. To be fair, he is dropping into coverage less than he usually does. 

Still, he is getting home in big moments and in bunches. Van Noy had two sacks against both Seattle and Detroit, two of the Ravens blowout wins. His forced fumble against the Seahawks turned a chance for Seattle to get momentum before the half into a chance for the Ravens. 

For such an impact player to make his debut in week three is rather impressive. What is even more impressive for the Baltimore Ravens is that career numbers for Van Noy do not crack their top 11 most impactful players, and it is not one of their two best edge rushers. The Ravens are just that deep.
