New York Jets Team Injury Report
Claiborne has struggled with injuries for much of his career, but at only 27 years old he still has time for a revival. The Jets' secondary should be much better this year than last, though with how bad the offense is expected to be, Claiborne is likely to be on the field for plenty of snaps if he can stay healthy. That being said, he's never been a big tackle or interception accumulator, so his fantasy value in IDP leagues is still fairly limited.
The sixth overall pick in 2012 has been an injury-plagued disappointment in his career to date, but Claiborne will get one more chance to make good with the Cowboys after signing a one-year deal in the offseason. He has yet to play a full 16-game schedule or record more than one interception in a season though, so even if he can stay healthy don't expect much production from him.
Claiborne continues to be plagued by injuries, and he played in only four games last season before tearing his Achilles tendon. He's made good progress in his recovery, but in the offseason the Cowboys declined his fifth-year option and drafted Byron Jones, so 2015 represents Claiborne's very last chance in Dallas to live up to his billing as the sixth overall pick in 2012.
Claiborne battled injuries again in his second season, playing only 10 games and losing his starting spot to Orlando Scandrick. He's still just two years removed from being the sixth overall pick though, and the Cowboys aren't ready to give up on him yet. Don't look for big IDP numbers, but if he can stay healthy he should help solidify the Dallas secondary.
Claiborne had an up-and-down rookie season, recording 55 tackles and one interception, but the sixth overall pick in 2012 showed plenty of potential and looks poised to take a big step forward. He may not put up IDP-worthy numbers, but he'll be a key part of the Cowboys' team defense.
The Cowboys traded up in the first round to nab Claiborne, the player they thought was the one difference-maker available at cornerback in this year's draft. He'll start opposite free agent Brandon Carr in Dallas' revamped secondary and has both the ball-hawking skills and willingness to get physical that make him a potential IDP star if he adapts to the NFL quickly.
