2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Suh will be in a contract year and will be motivated to improve on the 49 tackles and 5.5 sacks he had a year ago. A motivated Suh should be a scary proposition for opposing offenses....

The Lions have elected to put contract talks with Suh on hold until after the regular season ends, NBC Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The team believes that a deal will eventually get done, but the two sides clearly are far apart in negotiations. Suh, a four-year NFL veteran, is the anchor of Detroit's defensive line; he recorded 49 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, and six passes defensed last season.
It is "highly unlikely" Suh and the Lions reach an agreement on new contract terms before the start of training camp Monday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Suh won't attend voluntary camp this week, Larry Lage of the AP reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Earlier in April, teammate Reggie Bush said Suh's absence from voluntary workouts was due to "a contract thing." It's no secret that the stud defensive tackle wants an extension as he enters the final season of his rookie contract, and the Lions almost certainly want to work things out with their clear-cut top defensive player. However, Suh is somewhat controversial due to his history of on-field conflict, and as a former No. 2 overall draft pick who was selected before the rookie wage scale was implemented, he's already signed one huge contract. Public opinion wouldn't be in Suh's favor in the event of a holdout, if it all comes to that. As is typically the case in these situations, the player in question will very likely be playing for his current team come Week 1. Whether Suh will happily be playing for the Lions is quite a bit more questionable.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Suh recorded twice as many sacks in 2012 (8) as he did in 2011. He was also able to play in all 16 games.

2012

Aside from his team making the playoffs in 2011, Suh's season was a total disaster. He totaled just 36 tackles (26 solo) and four sacks in 14 games and faced a two-game suspension for an incident where he repeatedly forced the head of Green Bay guard Evan Dietrich-Smith into the ground and then stomped on Dietrich-Smith's arm. Suh is too talented, in any case, not to post numbers more in line with his 66-tackle, 10-sack rookie season from 2010. Expect him to channel his anger in more productive ways in 2012.

2011

In an era when double-digit sack production from defensive tackles is all but extinct, Suh stands out as a rare talent who prompts memories of the days when the likes of John Randle, Warren Sapp and Bryant Young headlined the position. In fact, Suh is the first tackle to post 10 sacks since Sapp in 2006. But as the lone player to break the recent paradigm of disappearing pass rushers at the tackle spot, Suh must also contend with increased attention from opposing offensive lines. Last year’s 66-tackle, 10-sack season might therefore be the best-case scenario with Suh, but the odds are he’ll remain a top IDP option even he falls short of that mark.

2010

Possessing amazing size and athletic ability, Suh has been projected by many to be a generational talent at tackle. He may not record a ton of tackles or sacks, but he will likely absorb double and triple teams to free up his teammates. He will start from Day 1, and it's worth noting that Albert Haynesworth had his best days under former Titans' defensive coordinator and current Lions' head man Jim Schwartz.
