Dion Jordan: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)While Jordan can participate in training camp and the preseason, he won't be able to suit up in a regular season contest until Week 6, following the Dolphins' bye week. While Jordan figured to remain Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon's backup heading into the coming season, he was in line to see his share of snaps in the team's speed packages, so this development represents a hit to the team's pass-rush out of the gate.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Keep a very close eye on Jordan's position designation in your league, because at press time it was up for interpretation, though the Miami Dolphins official web site listed him as a defensive end. It's a questionable fit, though, because Jordan was arguably at his best as a standup player in college, and he posted just five sacks as a senior. He's a rangy, long player with great pursuit ability, but Jordan looks more like Julian Peterson than DeMarcus Ware. That said, if the Dolphins use him at defensive end, he should thrive anyway, particularly as an IDP. His pass-rush impact could be limited, but Jordan's length and athleticism should allow him to pile up tackles in pursuit, and it's still reasonable to bet he'll play at linebacker a fair amount either way.
