RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After playing defensive tackle in college, Hood moved to defensive end and served as a rotational back-up in his rookie year with the Steelers. Since then, he has moved in to a starting role, although he could be pushed for playing time by Cameron Heyward.
Hood saw very little time in his first season with Pittsburgh. He will likely see his load increased a bit more in 2010, but not enough to the point that he would be up for fantasy consideration.
The Steelers' first-round draft choice from 2009 will start out being a reserve primarily at defensive end although the team said they may also at times try him at tackle. Either way, do not expect Hood to have an impact in terms of fantasy for a year or two.
