RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Tuitt began 2015 as the less-heralded player between himself and teammate Cameron Heyward, but throughout the year he demonstrated superior IDP upside. Although he missed two games with a knee issue, Tuitt logged 872 snaps and finished with 6.5 sacks at just 22 years old, meaning he should develop further after turning 23 in May. At 6-foot-6, 303 pounds, Tuitt is a standout athlete for someone of his build, and if he takes the next step forward in 2016 he should emerge as a solid DL2 option in most formats.
Tuitt struggled in his first season, but started the final four games for the Steelers. He is slated to return as the starting left end.
Tuitt's collegiate career was inconsistent, and he still has much to learn, but he has extraordinary athleticism and flexibility for someone his size.
