2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Dareus still has time to become the dominant defensive tackle he was envisioned to be when drafted #3 overall in 2011, but he's not there yet. Off-the-field concerns limited his effectiveness in 2012. There is some doubt that he will ever be a top shelf IDP option, though there is undeniable upside.

2012

As a huge, stout and strong tackle possessing rare athleticism for someone with a 6-3, 340-pound frame, Dareus would normally be an obvious candidate for every-down double teams. But with Mark Anderson and Mario and Kyle Williams playing next to him, opposing offenses might have no choice but to leave Dareus in one-on-one blocking, much to the benefit of Dareus' IDP owners. Dareus' 43 tackles (32 solo) and 5.5 sacks last year certainly do not jump off the page, but he's a lock to improve those numbers since he will have all that talent joining him in 2012. It also does not hurt that Buffalo is switching to a primarily four-man front, leaving offenses with less blocking resources on the interior. We'll note that Dareus will primarily play defensive tackle this season after serving as both a DE and DT in 2011, so there's probably a limit to how high his stats can go, but defensive coordinator does like to use his tackles as playmakers and not just gap fillers. If your league makes you choose DT as its own position, Dareus should be a good one this season.

2011

Buffalo linemen have been known to be solid IDP options, and Dareus, the third overall pick in April's NFL Draft, has more talent than your usual Bills lineman. He figures to displace Spencer Johnson in the starting lineup, and Johnson totaled 55 tackles (41 solo) in just 14 games last year. Dareus doesnt figure to have much of an effect as a pass rusher, but he should hold a powerful presence against the run and be in on a good number of stops.
