Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Kerrigan, who was drafted 16th overall by the Redskins in 2011, has been a force at linebacker and the team has put their faith in him for the future. The contract extension comes after an impressive 2014 campaign in which he racked up 64 tackles, a career-high 13.5 sacks, and five forced fumbles (tied for league lead). Kerrigan's value is also boosted by the fact that he has never missed a game in his four-year professional career.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Kerrigan has been a very durable player during his three years in Washington, although he underwent surgery to repair a torn MCL this offseason. He is expected to be healthy for training camp, but it wouldn't be surprised if he was limited early. That being said, he should be healthy for the regular season and he's coming off arguably his best season in the NFL, when he registered 66 tackles, 8.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. With 23.5 sacks in the last three seasons, Kerrigan could make the leap into double-digits this season.

2013

Kerrigan recorded a 8.5 sacks, one interception, and two forced fumbles in 2012. He should improve those numbers if Brian Orakpo (shoulder) can return to form and force offenses to spread their blocking.

2012

Kerrigan was impressive as a rookie last year – arguably just as good as the more acclaimed Brian Orakpo – showing no trouble transforming himself into a 3-4 outside linebacker after playing exclusively as a 4-3 end at Purdue. Kerrigan finished with 63 tackles (41 solo), 7.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and an interception return for a touchdown. Considering how dominant he was in college and how promising his play was as a rookie, it’s only reasonable to expect improvement out of Kerrigan. Anything less than double-digit sacks in 2012 would be a disappointment.

2011

The team's first round draft pick in 2011. The team will convert the defensive lineman to an outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense. This is the same conversion Brian Orakpo had to go through. Expect some ups and downs this year as he learns a new position. He has good strength and speed and there is no reason to believe he won't be successful.
