RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

McCoy has been a one-man wrecking ball the last three years, ripping through endless double-teams to total 119 tackles and 26.5 sacks over 2,370 snaps. He did so despite playing through injuries at multiple points, so between a clean bill of health and the added defensive end help of Robert Ayers (free agency) and Noah Spence (second-round pick), there's reason to think McCoy could have his best year yet in 2016. The double-teams will never stop, but at least McCoy might finally have some teammates capable of helping him get to the quarterback.

2015

McCoy finished last season with 35 tackles 13 for a loss and 8.5 sacks before missing the final two games of the season with a sprained knee. The former third-overall pick signed a seven-year, $98 million contract extension in October, and will anchor the middle of the Bucs' line for the foreseeable future. His ability to penetrate gaps and wreak havoc in opposing backfields makes him one of the rare talents in the league who can take the pressure off his linebackers to roam freely and make plays, and his output in the sack department makes him an IDP option in many leagues.

2014

After looking like a potential high-first-round-pick bust his first two years, McCoy has now been able to stay healthy and be more much more productive the last two seasons. McCoy had a big year in 2013, as he had 50 tackles (35 solo), a team-leading 9.5 sacks, four passes defensed and one fumble recovery. He's easily one of the top defensive lineman in the NFL now and will look to continue that form in 2014.

2013

McCoy finally put it all together in 2012 as he made his first Pro Bowl with tackles (23 solo), five sacks, five tackles-for-loss, two passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 15 games played. He will look to expand upon those numbers in 2013.

2012

McCoy has been limited to just 19 total games over his first two seasons, while collecting just 29 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles. Hopefully 2012 will be a healthy and productive season for the former No. 3 overall draft pick.

2010

Big things expected from this disruptive and quick defensive lineman who was a the No.3 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. McCoy is expected to start right away and could certainly help the fantasy fortunes of the Buccaneers' defense if he can live up to the hype.
