Josh Bynes: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Bynes played in 15 games last season, making six starts along the way en route to 45 tackles (22 solo) on the campaign. However, with the Ravens opting to re-sign cornerback Derek Cox on Tuesday, a corresponding roster move needed to be made and since Albert McClellan and Zachary Orr have made strong special teams contributions recently, Bynes was deemed the odd man out at inside linebacker. The 25-year-old run stopper will look to land elsewhere before the regular season kicks off this weekend.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bynes opened last season as a starter at inside linebacker, but he's a one-dimensional run stopper, and is now left fourth or fifth on the depth chart at a suddenly crowded position.
Bynes started three games last season, and may have a shot at a starting inside linebacker spot in 2013. He's not one of the favorites to win a starting job, but did perform reasonably well against the run last season. He's very questionable in pass coverage, which means he will likely be used as a two-down player at the Mike inside linebacker spot.
An undrafted rookie out of Auburn, don't expect anything fantasy-wise out of Bynes even if he does make the final roster.
