RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Jackson will start at defensive end in the Chiefs' base 3-4 defense, but his tackle and sack production through four years has been limited, making him a low-end IDP at best.

2012

Jackson will once again start as a defensive end in the Chiefs' 3-4 scheme. As more of a run-stuffer than pass-rusher however, he's not likely to generate enough sacks to warrant regular use as an IDP.

2011

As a 3-4 defensive end, Jackson does not get many opportunities to rush the passer, so his upside as an IDP lineman is limited. He does bring good athleticism to the position however, so he could be a candidate for strong tackle totals, which would make him a solid option for bye-week play.

2010

Jackson didn't do much as a rookie to quiet the critics who considered him a reach with the third overall pick of the 2009 draft. He played in all 16 games for the league's 30th-ranked defense, but finished with just 38 tackles, no sacks and no forced fumbles. We still like his work ethic and his potential, but he needs to make some strides in his second year.

2009

Run-stopping defensive ends in a 3-4 defense aren't exactly fantasy goldmines. Jackson will likely start from Week One and help the defense as a whole, but he won't have the pass-rushing opportunities needed to be a reliable fantasy performer. Put simply, you'd need to be a in pretty deep IDP league to consider drafting Jackson.
