Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

An MRI on Monday revealed the injury, which Melton suffered in Week 17 against Washington. While bone bruises typically aren't overly serious, Melton's is nearly a fracture, so the team has made the call to rule him out for the playoffs, which begin this weekend against the Lions.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Melton played just three games last season due to a torn ACL, but prior to the injury he was a disruptive force at defensive tackle for the Bears (13 sacks over two seasons). If he returns to full health, he should prove to be an able replacement for Jason Hatcher in the middle of the Cowboys' d-line.

2013

Melton parlayed a breakout six-sack, 44-tackle campaign into a franchise tender, earning him a lucrative one-year, $8.5 million deal. It's unclear how much room for growth he has, but with 13 sacks over the last two seasons, he's proven to be one of the better pass-rushing defensive tackles in the game today.

2012

The sky continues to be the limit for Melton, as the coaching staff cannot stop singing his praises. While he did seem to disappear at times last year, a full offseason can only further his development this year.

2011

Melton showed impressive flashes in 2010 giving the Bears high hopes for the new season. Consequently, Melton is lining up as the starting under tackle for Bears during camp, a position which the team is suddenly very deep at.
