RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Dorsey is recovering from a torn biceps muscle, but should be ready for training camp. He performed well as the 49ers' nose tackle in 2013 and was signed to a two-year extension in 2014, despite injuring his arm. He would be the favorite to start at nose tackle for San Francisco this season, but there have been rumblings about him sliding back to defensive end as well. Regardless of where he lines up, he won't have much IDP value, as Dorsey doesn't get to the quarterback often.

2014

Dorsey didn't have a strong statistical season in 2013 (28 TOT, 2.0 sacks), but his large frame was ideal for stuffing the run at the nose tackle position. He is listed as the starter heading into 2014, and that should remain the case barring any sort of injury.

2013

Though originally signed to fill the void at nose-tackle this season, Dorsey will have to compete with Ian Williams for the job and should ultimately end up as a back-up lineman behind both Williams and defensive end Justin Smith.

2012

The former first-round pick is a solid source of total tackles for a defensive lineman, but playing as an end in a 3-4 alignment, Dorsey simply doesn't produce enough sacks to warrant regular use as an IDP. If the Chiefs made a move to a 4-3 base defense he could become a more disruptive pass rusher as a defensive tackle, but that's unlikely to happen anytime soon under the watch of Romeo Crennel.

2011

As an undersized end in Kansas City’s 3-4 defense, Dorsey likely won’t be a factor as a pass rusher, as he only has four sacks in his three-year career. But he made frequent stops against the run last year, boasting an impressive 51 solo tackles on the way to a total tackle tally of 69. If you need solo tackles but can live without sacks, Dorsey is a super reliable target, and his lack of upside probably means he'll come cheap.

2010

Dorsey hasn't lived up to the hype that surrounded him as the fifth overall pick in 2008, but he made strides in his second year in Kansas City. Unfortunately, he's ill-suited to play defensive end in the 3-4, a position that doesn't fit his frame and hinders his potential pass-rushing abilities. He did have 54 tackles last season and could contribute in deeper IDP leagues, but don't expect a worthwhile sack total.

2009

Dorsey led all rookie defensive lineman with 46 tackles last season, but he posted just one sack and wasn't the distruptive force that many expected. Now he faces the challenge of transitioning from defensive tackle to defensive end in Kansas City's upgraded 3-4 defense. The changes should help him pick up a couple more sacks, but don't expect a major change in his number of tackles.

2008

Dorsey will be an immediate starter for the Chiefs and could rack up sack totals that are rare for a defensive tackle.
