2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Lee is probably one of the three best linebackers in the league when he's on the field. But as Lee's former IDP owners know far too well, the issue is that his durability is horrendous and seemingly g...

Lee (knee) is expected to undergo surgery Thursday, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Coach Jason Garrett noted that the Cowboys aren't yet closing the door on Lee returning from the injury this season, but given that ACL tears usually require nearly a year-long recovery time, it seems inevitable that the linebacker won't suit up in 2014. Lee suffered the injury during the Cowboys' first OTA session on May 27.
Lee has in fact torn his ACL and will be out for the season, the Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Cowboys now have a glaring hole at middle linebacker, as Lee was one of the more irreplaceable members of that defensive unit. Anthony Hitchens could be asked to see a lot more snaps in Lee's absence, and this makes the Cowboys' defense as a whole a lot less interesting from a fantasy standpoint.
There are fears that Lee may have torn his left ACL while participating in an organized team activity workout Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.

Lee suffered a left knee injury during Tuesday's OTAs, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Lee needed to be helped off the field and is now undergoing further medical evaluations. At the moment, the extent of Lee's injury is unclear, but for a player that has missed 15 games over the past two seasons, this latest ailment is certainly concerning. Expect more news regarding his knee to be forthcoming.
Lee (neck) has been fully cleared to participate in the Cowboys' offseason program, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

He's already doing individual workouts, and is expected to be a full participant in April's OTAs. There's a chance the Cowboys might add a middle linebacker in the draft so that they can shift Lee to the outside and maybe save some wear and tear on him, but for now his IDP projection remains the same as ever: a true stud when he's on the field, but with a very slim chance of actually playing 16 games.

2014

2013

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 chapters to the saga by playing through a dislocated wrist for most of 2011 and missing the final 10 games of 2012 with a toe injury. When Lee is on the field, though, he's a monster. He had 58 tackles and an interception on just 319 snaps last year, meaning he looks like an on-paper lock for 160 tackles should he ever make it to 1,000 snaps in a season. There's no reason to expect such luck, though.

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.
