Defense Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Jared Allen, DE, CHI3/27/2015 9:55:00 AM
Description: Bears defensive end Jared Allen might have some trouble adapting to the Bears new 3-4 defense, according to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times.
Insight: Allen has always played in a 4-3 and isn't really big enough to play DE in a 3-4. He could end up being in for a passing down package instead of every down after he posted a career-worst 5.5 sacks last season.
Kiko Alonso, LB, PHI3/26/2015 10:06:00 AM
Description: New Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso (torn ACL) is expected to be ready for OTAs, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.
Insight: The Eagles base defense wasn't very good last season, but their special teams made them a fantasy delight. A healthy Alonso alongside Mychal Kendricks will improve their defense, but that probably won't drastically change their fantasy value.
Vince Wilfork, DT, HOU3/16/2015 3:40:00 PM
Description: Former Patriots DT Vince Wilfork has agreed to join the Houston Texans, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: The 33-year-old Wilfork has been one of the top interior linemen in the NFL during his career and was a solid run-stopper again last season. With Wilfork clogging up the middle and J.J. Watt on the outside, the Texans should be solid up front.
Nick Fairley, DT, STL3/13/2015 1:18:00 PM
Description: Former Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley has been signed by the St. Louis Rams, according to CBSSports.
Insight: The Rams have assembled a strong and deep defensive line, but what about the rest of their holes?
