2012 Experience: 2nd Season

Fantasy Football Outlook: Taking Wagner in my IDP dynasty rookie draft last summer you know I was pulling for him to win the starting job coming out of camp. Well, it happened but Wagner was pulled for sub-package work through the first month of the season.

Eventually Wagner earned a sub-package work and once he did he played as one of the better IDP linebackers around finishing the season with 140 total tackles and over 80 solos.

I was Wagner’s ability to make big plays down the stretch that should have us considering Wagner as a top five linebacker in tackle heavy and big-play leagues. Wagner continues to impress this off-season and his coaches have praised him for his hard work and dedication to improve.

Expect Wagner to remain as the top IDP option on this talented defense and he should be a candidate to lead the league in tackles.

2012, August: Fantasy Projections

Perhaps we won’t see Wagner win a regular sub-package role but he will be the starter at middle linebacker. Wanger has good speed and should continue to emerge into at least a LB3 starting spot as the season moves along. For now, Wagner is a solid LB4 draft selection.

2012, May: Fantasy Projections

Question marks surround Bobby Wagner’s potential role in the Seahawks defense. What we do know as of OTAs is Barrett Ruud is slowly coming back from his ailments in the previous season, and Wagner has been working out as the starting middle linebacker in his absence.

If Ruud continues to have a slow training camp, Wagner’s chances of playing on the outside will lessen and his odds of unseating the veteran in the middle will increase. Maybe Wagner won’t start in the middle to being the year, but I like his odds of taking over, whether it be because of injury or he just outplays Ruud.

Perhaps Wagner isn’t the most gifted linebacker but he would be an instant starter in your lineup, should he take over. Look to Wagner as one of the top three linebackers to target in rookie dynasty drafts, and he’s a nice late round stash in redraft leagues.
