RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Michael Boley.
Boley has yet to break out as an IDP, but his strong on-field productivity and a potential move to middle linebacker gives hope for a career year in 2012, at least numbers-wise. Although he has only surpassed 100 tackles once in seven years, Boley would have more than likely breezed past triple digits in two of the last three seasons were it not for injuries. Over the last three years Boley has produced at a rate that projects to 103 tackles in 16 games, and the acquisition of Keith Rivers at outside linebacker should push Boley inside, where tackles will be more readily available.
Starting weak side linebacker - capable of some playmaking.
Boley will be the team's starting weak side linebacker. He's good for a few tackles and some plays in the passing game - worth a look in deeper IDP leagues.
Boley adds speed and athleticism to the Giants' weak-side linebacker position where he has a chance to rack up some tackles and even rush the passer. The team has even talked about using him in coverage on a occasion as he has the speed to handle it. Boley's on a team of defensive playmakers, but he makes a good sleeper in deeper IDP leagues. Update: Boley's going to miss all of training camp with an injury and the season opener due to a suspension.
Boley is a well-rounded player who offers significant upside. He has improved markedly each of his three NFL seasons and won't turn 26 until late August. Boley started 16 games last season for the first time and netted 102 tackles, four forced fumbles, three sacks and two interceptions. That versatility is a nice bonus at a position where all-around play is important. If Boley continues on his current trajectory, 120 tackles are well within reach. Boley was arrested and charged with assault in May, which likely will result in some form of punishment from the team.
