RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Allen Bailey.
The 27-year-old defensive end notched 4.5 sacks (second-highest total) in 2015, adding two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Heís locked in on the defensive line but his stats donít necessarily translate to a ton of fantasy value.
Posted career-highs in tackles (41 total, 27 solo) and sacks (five) in 2014, and should serve in a similar role for the Chiefs at defensive end again in 2015.
The 2011 third-rounder appeared in 15 games last season, starting three, recording 30 tackles and one sack in the process. He's a candidate to compete for the Chiefs' starting left defensive end slot.
A third round selection in the 2011 draft, Bailey has seen very limited action in his first two seasons. A new coaching staff could be just what he needs though, as Bailey offers quality strength and athleticism to a defensive line that needs someone to emerge as a disruptive presence. A strong training camp could earn him playing time in a mostly unproven rotation.
Bailey will compete for playing time behind Tyson Jackson at left defensive end in the team's base 3-4 defense. He will serve primarily as a situational pass rusher.
Bailey will be a reserve defensive end in his rookie season, playing behind Tyson Jackson in the Chiefs' 3-4 base defense. He does bring impressive athletic abilities to the table as a pass rusher, but he likely won't receive enough playing time to make a significant impact.
