DeAndre Levy: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Head coach Jim Caldwell believes that Levy (hip) will resemble his former self in 2016, Lindsay Selengowski of the Lions' official site reports. "I'm fully expecting him to be able to do the things he's always done for us," Caldwell said. "Make plenty of tackles. Be able to cover guys in terms of pass routes out of the backfield and detached. And certainly give us some help in terms of rushing the passer and blitzing once and a while. I expect him to be the same active guy he's always been."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Shortly after signing a four-year extension in August, Levy came down with a hip injury that dogged him throughout the first month of the season. He finally made an appearance in Week 5, but he logged just 17 snaps without recording a tackle before aggravating the ailment. Following hip surgery, the Lions kept the door open for a return this season, but the decision was made Wednesday to shut him down. Expect Josh Bynes to continue working as the nominal weakside linebacker in Detroit.
Levy (hip) is hoping to begin light jogging this week while recovering from his hip surgery a couple weeks ago, the Lions' official site reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Levy was an absolute menace in coverage last year, providing one of the best IDP seasons at linebacker by intercepting six passes and scoring a touchdown while piling up 118 tackles. He seems like a reliable bet to exceed 100 tackles again in 2014, as he has 378 stops in his last 57 games, which projects to about 106 for every 16 games. The addition of second-round pick Kyle Van Noy could pose a slight threat to his play-count, making a repeat of last year's brilliant season seem a bit of a long shot.

2013

Injuries and former teammate Justin Durant got in the way of Levy's IDP utility in 2012, but he looks like a potential bargain this year with Durant gone and a lack of competition at linebacker outside of Stephen Tulloch. Levy is a player who tends to post stats so long as he's on the field, as he posted 107 stops in 2011 and 72 tackles while playing 11 games in 2010. He finished 2012 with 81 stops while playing just 699 snaps on defense, so triple digits should easily be within reach as long as he plays over 900 snaps. The only other linebacker of note on the Detroit roster is Ashlee Palmer, who has primarily been a special teams player, so Levy should approach 1,000 snaps as long as he stays relatively healthy.

2012

Heís no Stephen Tulloch, but Levy has nonetheless established himself as a solid outside linebacker for the Lions. He had a bit of a breakout season in 2011, totaling 109 tackles (73 solo) while adding a sack and an interception. That interception was his fourth in three NFL seasons Ė a stat worth noting giving how many pass attempts the Detroit defense is likely to see as opponents try to keep up with the fast-paced Lions offense. With such a disruptive defensive line ahead of him, Levy should continue to be fairly opportunistic in coverage.

2011

Persistent groin and ankle injuries made it difficult to evaluate Levy last year, but despite the inconsistency he generally demonstrated the ability to pile up stats in large quantities. In 11 games last year, likely playing injured in many of them, Levy totaled 72 tackles (50 solo) and two interceptions. Those numbers would be solid if prorated over a 16-game season, but Levy isnít guaranteed to play that much in light of last seasonís durability struggles. Itís also unclear whether heíll play inside or out. Levy is an IDP option with a fairly high ceiling but a similarly low floor.

2010

The Lions are very high on the second-year pro from Wisconsin, so much so that Ernie Sims became expendable this past offseason to make room in the starting lineup for Levy. He put up solid tackling numbers in spot duty as a rookie and should be in line for better numbers this season.

2009

Levy looked to be in a position to start for the Lions on Draft Day, but the team ended up signing Larry Foote. Levy played outside linebacker in college at Wisconsin, but Detroit plans on moving him inside. He'll be a backup this season, but could see some starts should injuries strike the Lions' linebacking corps.
