RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Bynes will serve as Detroit's backup weak-side linebacker in 2015. With DeAndre Levy dealing with a hip injury to start the season, Bynes is likely to fill in on the starting defense.

2014

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.

2013

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.

2011

An undrafted rookie out of Auburn, don't expect anything fantasy-wise out of Bynes even if he does make the final roster.
