RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
