RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Starting nose tackle. He averages 30 tackles and a couple of sacks each year.
"Pot roast" will once again be the biggest body in the middle of the Broncos' defensive line. His main job is to take up space, which isn't a big fantasy stat in most leagues. Knighton has five sacks over the last two seasons, averaging 31.5 tackles in that span, and there isn't likely to be a huge increase in 2014.
Will start at nose tackle for the Broncos in 2013. He's a huge lineman who eats up plenty of space, although he isn't expected to gobble up too many tackles to make his IDP value very high.
Big things were expected from Knighton as he headed into his fourth season, coming off a strong third year before a bar fight led to a severe eye injury. All reports indicate Knighton's experienced a somewhat miraculous recovery and he should be ready for training camp. Pot Roast won't post gaudy statistics as he's more of a space eater in the middle, but a fully healthy Tyson Alualu and the addition of rookie Andre Branch could provide a bit of a boost for the big man.
Knighton will start at defensive tackle.
