2013 Fantasy Football Outlook

Lee might be the league's best inside linebacker when healthy. His brittleness, though, has a remarkably long history. His days at Penn State were full of durability troubles, and he added new chapter...

Outside of Romo, Murray, Bryant, Witten and Tyron Smith, pretty much all parts of the Dallas roster could use help. The lines are in the worst shape, though.

Sean Lee: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Cowboys converted $4.75 million of Lee's $5.5 million base salary in a signing bonus Monday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The transfer was made in order to help the Cowboys get closer to the salary cap threshold. Meanwhile, Lee has yet to receive medical clearance for the torn neck ligament that knocked him out of five of the final six games last season. He'll attempt to be healthy by the time the team's offseason program starts on Apr. 21.
Lee -- who is recovering from a torn ligament in his neck -- hasn't yet been fully cleared by the Cowboys' medical staff, ESPN.com reports.

On the plus side, Lee, who continues to rehab the injury in advance of the team's offseason program -- which begins on Apr. 21 -- indicated that his neck has improved of late. "I'm working all the neck exercises," he said. "I think it was just having time to heal, allowing that ligament to heal, and it takes a certain amount of time. I think we're on the path to where it's pretty much there."
Lee's neck injury will not require surgery, Dallas Morning News writer Brandon George reports.

Lee (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thus, Lee will finish the season missing five of the final six games due to a left hamstring strain and a strained neck ligament, which were interspersed by an appearance in Week 14. He fell just one tackle shy of 100, but his line -- 99 stops (68 solo), six passes defended, four interceptions, one pick for a touchdown, and one fumble recovery in 11 contests -- was still fitting of an LB1 on a per-game basis. These particular injuries should be fully healed by training camp, although given Lee's checkered medical record you can never fully count on him being healthy for too long a stretch.
Lee (neck) didn't practice Wednesday, the Dallas Morning News reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

If durability werenít an issue for Lee, he would rank significantly higher. Although heís tough as nails and possesses a rare work ethic, Lee seems to be remarkably brittle, as he has missed time with or played through quadriceps, hamstring, shoulder, concussion, back and wrist issues in his first two NFL seasons. Thatís not even mentioning the ACL tear he suffered in spring 2008. If Lee should miraculously stay healthy a full season, his IDP production would more than likely be top-tier. He totaled 104 stops (71 solo) in 15 games last year despite playing with a dislocated wrist for eight games. He also has a rather brilliant total of six career interceptions in 29 games despite playing a part-time role as a rookie.

2011

Young buck ILB has great instincts and athleticism and is a future captain of the Cowboys' defense, provided he can stay healthy enough to reach his potential. If he can take the starting job from Keith Brooking and play 16 games he could be a surprise IDP star, but there are much safer bets at the position.

2010

Second round pick has top-shelf linebacking instincts and leadership abilities, and will get a season apprenticing behind Keith Brooking before he'll be asked to start. If injuries push him into a bigger role ahead of schedule he could be worth looking at as a bye-week IDP player.
