RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Matt Shaughnessy.

2014

Projected as the starting strongside linebacker, Shaughnessy's abilities as a pass rusher should keep him on the field during all three downs. However, his IDP potential doesn't stand out, after two campaigns in which he totaled 67 tackles (56 solo), 6.5 sacks, three fumble recoveries, and a forced fumble. On the other hand, the losses of Karlos Dansby (as a free agent), Daryl Washington (suspension), and Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) could force more blitzing on Shaughnessy's shoulders, improving his prospects to produce.

2012

Shaughnessy is expected to battle for a starting defensive end job for the Raiders after rehabbing his surgically repaired shoulder in the offseason.

2011

If Shaughnessy’s playing time were more reliable, he’d probably warrant a higher ranking. He quietly hit double digits for tackles for loss last year, and he totaled 56 tackles (43 solo) and seven sacks despite starting just eight games. If Shaughnessy gets more snaps in 2011, something he has probably earned, he’s worth moving up on cheat sheets. In the meantime, however, the presence of players like Lamarr Houston, Kamerion Wimbley and Trevor Scott make Shaughnessy’s path to the field a bit blurry.

2010

Shaughnessy had four sacks over last season's final nine games after moving into a more prominent role on the defensive line. With a starting spot secure in 2010, Shaughnessy should have little trouble bettering that number in his second season. Still, unless he makes drastic improvements, he's unlikely to be productive enough to be a top IDP option.

2009

Shaughnessy will be a reserve defensive lineman for the Raiders.
