RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
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.
