RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Orakpo is returning from shoulder surgery that cost him all of 2012. It was the same injury that ended his 2011 season in Week 17. He is expected to be healthy to start the year. If he can return to form expect around 50 tackles, 10 sacks, and a few forced fumbles.

2012

Orakpo had a solid yet unspectacular 2011. He recorded 9 sacks for the third year in a row, a career high 60 tackles, and three forced fumbles. He was often double teamed and struggled at times especially to make an impact (half his sacks came in two games). He suffered a torn pectoral in the final game of 2011 but is 100 percent going into training camp. Expect Orakpo to have more breathing room with the continued maturation of Ryan Kerrigan. Also the team has another year under it's belt in the 3-4 defense.

2010

Orakpo posted an impressive 11 sacks and 50 tackles as a rookie, splitting time between defensive end and outside linebacker. Orkapo was typically used at DE on passing downs, but this season might play OLB full time. If that’s the case, his IDP ranking will suffer greatly because he won’t generate enough tackles to hang with the top linebackers. His sacks likely will take a hit too, but as the OLB in Washington’s new 3-4 defense, he could still be used as an edge rusher (if Andre Carter doesn’t man that spot). Orakpo has significant fantasy upside if he’s deployed as a defensive end. Just double-check his eligibility in your league before drafting.

2009

First round draft pick in 2009. He is expected to play outside linebacker part time and defensive end on passing downs. He has the size, strength and speed to play both positions. He has a lot to learn and Defensive Coach Greg Blache does not like to start rookies. Expect Orakpo to be eased into his role.
