RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ross Cockrell.
After playing almost exclusively on special teams for Buffalo in 2014, Cockrell joined the Pittsburgh defensive backfield and proved he could be a playmaker. He enters training camp looking to win a starting position and, considering opposing offenses threw against them more than 62 percent of the time, could be a sleeper pick in IDP formats.
A fourth round pick in 2014, Cockrell got his feet wet in his rookie season but not much more. He looks to step up his game in year #2.
The Bills used a fourth round pick in the 2014 draft to nab Cockrell. He had a nice collegiate career at Duke and could spend some time on the field in obvious passing downs this season. The best value for Cockrell in fantasy is as a late round flier in dynasty IDP leagues since he will ultimately have an opportunity to prove himself and win more playing time.
