RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Mathieu was off his game in 2014 due to his recovery from ACL and LCL tears suffered in the previous campaign. However, the Cardinals' previous defensive coordinator, Todd Bowles, was forced to use five or six defensive backs on most snaps, meaning Mathieu still maintained a steady role. By season's end, Mathieu had notched 37 tackles (35 solo), four passes defended, one interception, two tackles for loss, and one fumble recovery in 13 contests. Unfortunately for Mathieu, Rashad Johnson also mans free safety and led the defense with 93 tackles and four interceptions last year, who could place a damper on Mathieu's eventual snap count and, by proxy, his production.

2014

Mathieu won't necessarily produce like a top-25 IDP this year, but that would only be the case if the torn ACL/LCL injury he suffered in December limits his workload early in the season. He's expected to be ready for Week 1, however, so there's a decent chance that he's ready to hit the ground running by the time the season starts. To the surprise of no one who ever saw him play at LSU, Mathieu displayed unique upside as a safety/slot corner hybrid. Despite playing a part-time role early in the year, he finished with 68 tackles (65 solo), one sack, and two interceptions in 13 games, and he'll be locked into a three-down role this year as soon as he's physically able to play. Mathieu forced 11 fumbles and posted 16 tackles for loss in his two years at LSU, and his nose for the ball gives him significant upside once he regains full strength.

2013

Mathieu will battle for the starting free safety position against Yeremiah Bell. Mathieu will also likely be featured on special teams as the Cardinals will look to utilize his return ability.
