RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Robertson averaged 84 tackles the last four years in Cleveland but joined the Saints this offseason. While he will likely start the season in a reserve role, Robertson is capable of playing either inside or outside linebacker and should provide critical depth at a number of positions in the event of an injury. Given both the advanced age and checkered injury history of some of the Saints' starting linebackers, Robertson could become a sneaky option in IDP leagues should the injury bug bite.

2015

Robertson is an early favorite to win a starting inside linebacker job, but will have to hold off Chris Kirksey to maintain that role. Both players had exceptional 2015 campaigns, which can largely be attributed to Karlos Dansby missing five games due to various injuries. Should Robertson lock down a starting role, he'll be a solid IDP sleeper, as the 27-year-old would likely surpass last season's career-best combined tackle total of 99.

2014

Robertson projects to be a starter at inside linebacker for the Browns in 2014. Over his first two seasons in the league, the 26-year-old out of North Texas racked up 178 combined tackles and four sacks. If he remains the starter as expected, Robertson should once again be a serviceable IDP option.

2013

Robertson finished 2nd on the Browns last season with 93 tackles. He is one of the starting middle linebackers in Cleveland's 3-4 defense.
