RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Foster was mentioned this offseason as a candidate to be replaced in Tampa Bay's starting lineup, but it appears the Buccaneers will stick with him for another year after declining to add competition in the draft and free agency. Playing in Lovie Smith's defense, a full-time role should yield good IDP production for Foster. Although his tackle production is modest, he's among the league's best blitzing linebackers. He posted two sacks in each of his first three seasons, and he showed further playmaking skills by intercepting three passes last year, returning two for touchdowns.

2013

Foster certainly had a better sophomore campaign (105 tackles) than his rookie year, when his tackle total (84) was a disappointment. Expect him to post similar - if not slightly better - numbers across the board in 2013, making him an IDP-league consideration.

2012

After an extremely productive college career at Washington and positive early reviews from the Buccaneers, Foster was largely a flop as a starting middle linebacker in his rookie year. He finished with 83 tackles and two sacks, which is not quite what the Bucs were looking for when they gave him the job. He will be back this year to improve on those numbers, and should be in good position to do so with a his first full offseason to prepare.

2011

Foster was a superb college player who should be a big-time IDP whenever he gets a starting spot in Tampa’s defense. If Barrett Ruud doesn't return, Foster has a great shot at starting at middle linebacker as a rookie for the Buccaneers this year. In that case, consider moving Foster as high as the top-20. He finished his senior season at Washington with an absurd total of 162 tackles (105 solo) in just 13 games, and that's not to mention the 14 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks.
