RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

For three straight years Levy has been one of the league's most disruptive playmakers. As an encore to his 117-tackle, six-interception season in 2013, Levy posted a career high in tackles last year, including 17 for loss. Levy, though, benefited from Stephen Tulloch's season-ending injury. Tulloch's back to poach tackles, as is 2014 second-round pick Kyle Van Noy. Expect some regression from Levy, but he's too good to disappear.

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.
