RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Lions showed their faith in Whitehead by inking him to a two-year, $8 million extension in the offseason. Indications are that he has the inside track on becoming the club's primary option at the MLB position, which would give him some value as an IDP.

Whitehead will be a backup linebacker and special teams player for the Lions.
