RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Orakpo signed with the Titans coming off an injury-plagued 2014 campaign that saw him record just 0.5 sacks in seven appearances with the Redskins, but the three-time Pro Bowl linebacker could be in for a rebound season with star defensive lineman Jurell Casey around to draw the offensive line's attention. Orakpo had 10 sacks and 60 tackles in 2013, and he should approach that level of production if healthy in his first year away from Washington.

2014

Orakpo reached double digit sacks in 2013 for the first time since his rookie season. He recorded ten sacks and 60 tackles. He received the franchise tag instead of a long term deal during the offseason. When healthy he averages just under ten sacks a season. The team drafted Trent Murphy in the second round in 2014 which might signal this is Orakpo's last season as a Redskin.

2013

Orakpo is returning from shoulder surgery that cost him all of 2012. It was the same injury that ended his 2011 season in Week 17. He is expected to be healthy to start the year. If he can return to form expect around 50 tackles, 10 sacks, and a few forced fumbles.

2012

Orakpo had a solid yet unspectacular 2011. He recorded 9 sacks for the third year in a row, a career high 60 tackles, and three forced fumbles. He was often double teamed and struggled at times especially to make an impact (half his sacks came in two games). He suffered a torn pectoral in the final game of 2011 but is 100 percent going into training camp. Expect Orakpo to have more breathing room with the continued maturation of Ryan Kerrigan. Also the team has another year under it's belt in the 3-4 defense.

2010

Orakpo posted an impressive 11 sacks and 50 tackles as a rookie, splitting time between defensive end and outside linebacker. Orkapo was typically used at DE on passing downs, but this season might play OLB full time. If that’s the case, his IDP ranking will suffer greatly because he won’t generate enough tackles to hang with the top linebackers. His sacks likely will take a hit too, but as the OLB in Washington’s new 3-4 defense, he could still be used as an edge rusher (if Andre Carter doesn’t man that spot). Orakpo has significant fantasy upside if he’s deployed as a defensive end. Just double-check his eligibility in your league before drafting.

2009

First round draft pick in 2009. He is expected to play outside linebacker part time and defensive end on passing downs. He has the size, strength and speed to play both positions. He has a lot to learn and Defensive Coach Greg Blache does not like to start rookies. Expect Orakpo to be eased into his role.
