Steve McLendon: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)McLendon assumed the starting nose tackle position in place of Casey Hampton, and finished the season with 33 tackles (20 solo). Even if he continues to serve in that capacity in 2014 his fantasy value is limited.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The addition of Cam Thomas may result in McLendon moving from nose tackle to left end. Either way, he should still make an impact this season.
McLendon will be asked to fill the cleats of former nose tackle Casey Hampton this season. He's a better pash rusher than Hampton, and should help a Steelers' defensive unit that recorded just 37 sacks in 2012.
A former undrafted free agent, McLendon was expected to open the season as Pittsburgh's starting nose tackle, but Casey Hampton would still rotate in on obvious running downs.
McLendon, signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2009, has played in four games with one tackle and a fumble recovery.
