RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Wheeler is poised to break out in his fifth season – his first in Oakland. He will start at outside linebacker and should be a productive IDP right away. He totaled 76 tackles (43 solo) in 11 starts last year, which would project to roughly 111 tackles (63 solo) over 16 games. He’ll have less competition for tackles in Oakland, though – he posted last year’s solid numbers with the Colts despite teammates Pat Angerer, Dan Conner and Ernie Sims combining for 313 tackles. With just Rolando McClain to deal with in Oakland, Wheeler is a sleeper to surpass 120 tackles in 2012.

2011

Wheeler has shown some promise in his three years with the Colts, but he's as low as fifth in the team's outside linebacker rotation.

2010

Wheeler, who had 52 tackles last season, will once again start at outside linebacker for the Colts.

2009

Wheeler will start at outside linebacker for the Colts in 2009, barring injury, opposite Clint Session. The second year player should have an impact on the Colts defense, and his progress will be monitored closely early on in the season.

2008

Wheeler will serve as a backup linebacker with a chance to see a decent amount of playing time, especially at the beginning of the season with Tyjuan Hagler out with a pectoral injury.
