2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Even on a modest snap count of 883 defensive plays in 15 games, Clark made it to triple-digit tackles for the second year in a row in 2012. This status quo seems unlikely to change in 2013, because Clark is penciled in for the same role this year, and in the past four years he has averaged roughly 95 tackles per season. The selection of fourth-round Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas was more for insurance behind injury-prone starter Troy Polamalu than it was to put any heat on either Clark or Polamalu in the starting lineup.

2012

Troy Polamalu has been the much better on-field player, but Clark (largely due to better durability) has been the better IDP in recent years. He made it to 100 tackles for the first time in his career in 2011 (71 solo) and rounded out his box score with a sack and interception. He has just 3.5 sacks and 11 interceptions in his 10-year career, so Clark's upside is certainly limited, but his floor is at a good level thanks to posting a 16-game rate of 96 tackles the last four years.

2010

Clark had a career-year with Pittsburgh in 2009, setting new marks in solo tackles (68), total tackles (89) and passes defensed (8), while also tying his career-high in interceptions (3). He has recorded 70 or more tackles in four of his six full seasons in the league and is expected to do so again in 2010.

2009

Clark had one of the best statistical seasons of his career in 2008 with 87 tackles, six passes defensed and one interception. Assuming he will be completely healed from offseason shoulder surgery (and entering the final year of his contract), he should again team up with Troy Polamalu to form one of the better pairs of safeties in the league.

2008

Clark should start at free safety for the Steelers and benefit from playing alongside the tenacious Troy Polamalu.

2007

Clark will battle second-year player Anthony Smith for the starting free safety spot in 2007. He acquitted himself quite nicely after signing a four-year deal with Pittsburgh in March of 2006 before missing three games with a groin injury.

2005

With the return of injured safety Matt Bowen, Clark will see his playing time reduced in 2005. He was effective at times last year but failed to record a sack or interception.
