RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

The versatile Ninkovich is listed as a linebacker by the Patriots' PR department, but he has a good shot to end up starting at left defensive end for the team. He racked up 74 tackles and 6.5 sacks last season, so there sneaky IDP value to be had here if he ends up with DL eligibility.

2011

Quietly racked up 62 tackles, four sacks and two picks last season. He'll remain in the Pats' strong-side linebacker mix and is worth a look in deeper leagues.

2010

In the Patriots' outside linebacker mix, Ninkovich should easily eclipse his 2009 total of 23 tackles if he can carve out a steady role.
