Robert Quinn: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Quinn now has five in the last two weeks, setting a franchise record with 18 with one game to go. He's been a beast all season and should warrant some consideration for Defensive Player of the Year.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Quinn's talent warrants a bigger projection, but his 2012 performance implies he'll be a one-dimensional player who makes his mark purely as a pass rusher. Split out wide and away from between-the-tackles running, Quinn rarely showed the ability to post noteworthy tackle totals in 2012, his first as a starter. But he is one of the league's brightest pass-rushing prospects, as he posted 10.5 sacks on just 830 defensive snaps last year. Look for Quinn to continue to improve, but don't expect him to turn into a 60-tackle player in the Rams’ current scheme.
Quinn is probably a bit under the radar, but he looks ready to break out in a big way in 2012. He has the natural talent and college productivity that indicates elite pass-rushing ability, he plays for a coach (Jeff Fisher) with an impressive defensive résumé and the three linemen playing next to him (Kendall Langford, Michael Brockers and Chris Long) are all physically imposing players who will ensure that Quinn almost never sees double teams. Although he is more of a blank slate than an established commodity, Quinn showed promise during his brief playing time as a rookie, posting five sacks despite playing off the bench. Possessing 4.62 speed on a 6-4, 264-pound frame, Quinn runs with a lean somewhat reminiscent of DeMarcus Ware. It would surprise if he doesn't comfortably make it to double-digit sacks.
Should start the season behind starter James Hall at right defensive end, but could steal the job by midseason if he realizes his vast potential.
