RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Kirksey tallied 81 combined tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble during his rookie year in Cleveland, stepping up big when fellow inside linebacker Karlos Dansby was forced to miss five games. He'll likely need a similar sequence of events to pass if he plans on seeing consistent playing time in the upcoming season, as Craig Robertson — who posted a career-best 99 combined tackles over 11 starts — will be the early favorite to win the starting inside linebacker job alongside Karlos Dansby. It projects to be a close battle, however, so Kirksey’s status is certainly worth monitoring in IDP leagues.

2014

Kirksey will provide the Browns with depth at inside linebacker in 2014. If he can make an early impression in camp, the third-round draft pick could find himself just one injury away from seeing the field in his rookie campaign.
