2020 Fantasy Outlook
Last season was a breakout year for Dupree, who had career highs in tackles, sacks, QB hits, forced fumbles and fumble recoveries. He's missed just one game in the past three seasons and is a key component of one of the league's most feared linebacker corps -- along with Devin Bush and T.J. Watt -- giving him a high ceiling in most IDP formats. Read Past Outlooks

Knee - ACL
March 15, 2021
Dupree (knee) agreed to terms Monday on a contract with the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
The Titans are one offseason removed from a disastrous Jadeveon Clowney signing, but bringing in Dupree is a chance to make things right. The torn ACL that Dupree suffered last December doesn't appear to have brought down his value on the open market much at all, as Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that Dupree will cash out with $16.5 million annually in Tennessee. When back to full health, Dupree no doubt will be a notable upgrade to the Titans' pass rush, but it's worth noting that he won't get the benefit of having the likes of T.J. Watt, Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt assisting in creating pressure up front.

2015
A healthy Dupree enters the 2019 season with a guaranteed $9.2 million salary. He puts up consistent numbers, but the league is deep at the linebacker position, diminishing his IDP fantasy value.
Dupree has recorded 14.5 sacks in 38 games, including a career best six sacks last season. Concerns about his durability after missing nine games in 2017 seems to be a distant memory, and he will again start at outside linebacker for a defensive unit that led the league with 56 sacks.
Pittsburgh had high expectations for Dupree after he recorded four sacks in his rookie season. Unfortunately, his sophomore campaign got off to a rocky start, with an abdominal injury in Week 1. As a result, Dupree played in just seven games, but still managed to exceed his sack total with 4.5. So long as he is healthy, he should start at outside linebacker and put up respectable fantasy totals.
The Steelers were so pleased with Dupree's rookie performance, in which he recorded 26 tackles including four sacks, that they felt comfortable declining Jarvis Jones' 2017 fifth-year option. Dupree is again expected to start this season opposite a platoon of Jones and James Harrison at outside linebacker, and it is safe to anticipate an increase in fantasy production as Dupree becomes more comfortable on the field.
Pittsburgh’s 2015 first round pick is expected to start this season opposite Jarvis Jones at outside linebacker. Dupree is a speed-rusher looking to improve on the Steelers’ lowest sack total since 1989. He also has the ability to drop into coverage, making him an intriguing fantasy option in IDP formats.
