RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Addae looked like a breakout candidate last year, but injury troubles made it difficult to test the hypothesis. He dealt with an ankle injury for more than a month, finishing with 65 tackles and one sack on 713 snaps. The initial appeal with Addae was his tackle rates from the two years prior, a span in which he totaled 86 while playing just 542 snaps. That impossibly high tackle rate wasn't the expectation for 2015 – it was clearly unsustainable – but it still feels like Addae should have done much more. He'll get another chance to make his case this year now that Weddle is gone.
Addae is a relative unknown, but he could become a top IDP option this season. Despite playing just 431 snaps last year, Addae raced to 48 tackles, which projects to 111 tackles over 1,000 snaps. Addae should reach that play count this season, as former starting safety Marcus Gilchrist left for the Jets in free agency, opening the door for Addae to earn a starting role. If he indeed starts, Addae should push for triple-digit tackles.
Addae was forced into spot duty in 2013, but provides nothing more than depth at free safety.
