2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

It looked like the Jets got themselves a steal when they drafted Wilkerson with the 30th overall pick in 2011, but few would have guessed he'd be quite as good as he is today. He won't turn 25 until O...

Muhammad Wilkerson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Wilkerson said that he will not hold out for a new contract this offseason, NFL.com reports. "It will be taken care of, definitely," said Wilkerson. "But all that holdout and all that other talk that people were saying and everything -- I never said anything like that. I'm not going to hold out. It's not something I want; it's not something I'm thinking about. I'm going to show up like everybody else and do what I'm told."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The star defensive lineman will be entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, but the Jets have until May 3 to exercise a fifth-year option at approximately $6 million, which looks like a huge bargain for a player of Wilkerson's caliber. As a former No. 30 overall pick, Wilkerson is scheduled to make approximately $1.31 million in 2014, while on the open market he'd almost certainly command more than $10 million per season. He's probably one of the five best interior linemen in the game, and it won't be surprising if he signs a long-term extension this offseason. The Jets surely have no desire to break up the destructive interior pairing of Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson, a duo that should be tormenting the league for years to come. Not only does Wilkerson dominate opposing offensive linemen, but he's also the rare 3-4 defensive end capable of piling up stats. After compiling 69 tackles, five sacks, and three forced fumbles in 2012, he finished 2013 with 64 tackles, 10.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The 2011 first-round pick is arguably the top player on the Jets' defense given the offseason departures of Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis. He's an elite run-stopper and recorded 69 tackles and five sacks. If he can avoid injury, the 23-year-old Wilkerson could be poised for his Pro Bowl season.

2012

Like Quinton Coples, Wilkerson is talented enough to push for IDP relevance despite playing in a three-man front. With the arrival of Coples, moreover, any worry Wilkerson might have had about seeing disproportionate attention from opposing blocking schemes is mostly relieved. In any case, he finished his 2010 rookie season with 49 tackles (35 solo), three sacks, one safety and a forced fumble. A naturally strong player with good athleticism for his size, Wilkerson should improve on his rookie numbers in 2012.

2011

After the departure of Shaun Ellis in free agency, Wilkerson is slated to start right away and the Jets are expecting him to immediately contribute to their pass rush. He could be worth an IDP look depending on how training camp and the preseason works out
