2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

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 getting worse. He tore an ACL back in 2008, and in his four pro seasons he's dealt with neck, toe, wrist, quadriceps, hamstring, shoulder and back issues at various points. He's never played a full season in the NFL, missing 28-of-64 games. The latest injury woe for the linebacker occurred in May, when Lee tore his ACL.

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.
