Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Branch wasn't going to generate enough stats to become an IDP of significance, but losing a starting defensive end is a blow to a defense expected to take a step forward this season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Prior to being sidelined by a groin injury, Branch recorded three sacks, two forced fumbles and 13 tackles in seven games for the Jags, so once he proves his health, the DE could reenter the IDP equation in deeper formats.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The former second-round pick will provide depth on the defensive line. He finished with just 12 combined tackles in 13 games last season after notching 37 in 16 games as a rookie.
Branch will provide depth at defensive end.
Branch will eventually be expected to fill one of the team's biggest needs at a position they've had little success drafting in recent years (Derrick Harvey, Quentin Groves, anyone?) While Branch is unlikely to take on an every-down role in his rookie season, he notched ACC-leading 10.5 sacks and 17 TOL in 2011 and could ultimately displace Austen Lane along the line.
