2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Dorsey didn't have a strong statistical season in 2013 (28 TOT, 2.0 sacks), but his large frame was ideal for stuffing the run at the nose tackle position. He is listed as the starter heading into 201...

Dorsey (biceps) is expected to miss three-and-a-half months after undergoing successful surgery Aug. 4, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

Dorsey (biceps) agreed to a two-year contract extension with the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dorsey is uncertain to play in 2014 after tearing his biceps in training camp, but in signing Dorsey to a new deal, the 49ers will be able to ensure he doesn't hit the open market next summer. He'll likely be placed on injured reserve to start the season, but there's a good chance he could be the club's designated player to return if he progresses well in his recovery.
Dorsey (biceps), who will undergo surgery Monday, is at best hoped to be able to return late in the regular season, CSN Bay Area reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dorsey tore the biceps tendon in his left arm during Friday's practice and is now likely to miss the upcoming campaign. Although the 49ers are keeping hope that he'll possibly be able to return toward the end of the season, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio must now find a new starting nose tackle. Ian Williams was slated to fill the role last season, before a lower leg fracture suffered in Week 2 ended his year and resulted in four subsequent surgeries. While Williams still hasn't been cleared to practice, teammates Mike Purcell and Quinton Dial have received reps at nose tackle, where San Francisco will suddenly weigh an important position battle.
Dorsey (torn biceps) will be evaluated over the next few days, and he has not yet been ruled out for the season, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

Dorsey (arm) is out for the season with a torn biceps, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dorsey was slated to start at nose tackle, but the 49ers may now turn to either Ian Williams (ankle) or Quinton Dial. Williams opened last season as the starter, then landed on IR in September with a broken ankle. Dorsey filled in effectively, but the job may now swing back to Williams, who is currently on the preseason PUP list while recovering from the same injury. Dial, a 2013 fifth-round selection, barely saw the field as a rookie. In light of Williams' slow recovery and Dial's lack of experience, the Niners may explore an external solution.
Dorsey suffered an arm injury Friday and had to leave training camp, CSN Bay Area reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Though originally signed to fill the void at nose-tackle this season, Dorsey will have to compete with Ian Williams for the job and should ultimately end up as a back-up lineman behind both Williams and defensive end Justin Smith.

2012

The former first-round pick is a solid source of total tackles for a defensive lineman, but playing as an end in a 3-4 alignment, Dorsey simply doesn't produce enough sacks to warrant regular use as an IDP. If the Chiefs made a move to a 4-3 base defense he could become a more disruptive pass rusher as a defensive tackle, but that's unlikely to happen anytime soon under the watch of Romeo Crennel.

2011

As an undersized end in Kansas City’s 3-4 defense, Dorsey likely won’t be a factor as a pass rusher, as he only has four sacks in his three-year career. But he made frequent stops against the run last year, boasting an impressive 51 solo tackles on the way to a total tackle tally of 69. If you need solo tackles but can live without sacks, Dorsey is a super reliable target, and his lack of upside probably means he'll come cheap.

2010

Dorsey hasn't lived up to the hype that surrounded him as the fifth overall pick in 2008, but he made strides in his second year in Kansas City. Unfortunately, he's ill-suited to play defensive end in the 3-4, a position that doesn't fit his frame and hinders his potential pass-rushing abilities. He did have 54 tackles last season and could contribute in deeper IDP leagues, but don't expect a worthwhile sack total.

2009

Dorsey led all rookie defensive lineman with 46 tackles last season, but he posted just one sack and wasn't the distruptive force that many expected. Now he faces the challenge of transitioning from defensive tackle to defensive end in Kansas City's upgraded 3-4 defense. The changes should help him pick up a couple more sacks, but don't expect a major change in his number of tackles.

2008

Dorsey will be an immediate starter for the Chiefs and could rack up sack totals that are rare for a defensive tackle.
