RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Houston recorded 10 sacks last season and is expected to start at outside linebacker for the Chiefs in 2013.

2012

Houston came on very strong late in his rookie year, notching 24 total tackles and 5.5 sacks in the team's final five games. He has tremendous burst coming around the edge as a pass-rushing outside linebacker and could be in line for a major breakout playing opposite Pro Bowler Tamba Hali. Opposing offenses will simply not be able to devote as much attention to him as Hali, and in leagues that reward heavily for sacks, Houston could emerge as a productive IDP option.

2011

A sack specialist in college, Houston projects as a situational pass rusher in his rookie season, as he must adjust to his linebacker role in the 3-4 defense before he can play more downs without being a liability. His upside is high, but after a lockout-shortened offseason and a brief contract holdout, he is behind in his development and not likely to contribute much in 2011.
