Daryl Washington | Arizona Cardinals |LB
2013 Experience: 4th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: It’s been an interesting off-season for Washington and because of his off the field problems, the Cardinals brought former defensive captain Karlos Dansby back into the fold. Dansby is still a terrific player and will fill in for Washington during his four-game suspension.
I think Washington will be a respectable LB2 if and when he comes back in October. Having Dansby on the field with him will hurt him some and the loss of defensive coordinator Ray Horton will ensure he fails to receive as many blitzing opportunities so don’t expect a high sack total.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
In his second-year Daryl Washington played at an LB1 level, and it seems like he’s only scratched the surface of his potential. Washington should be good for around 100 solos and he’s one of the better big play inside linebackers.
While fellow inside linebacker Paris Lenon will contribute, Washington should devour most of the plays inside and he likely at top ten IDP linebacker.
Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
If Daryl Washington stays with the Cardinals (rumored as possible trade for Kevin Kolb) he should figure to get his full time starting inside linebacker job back playing opposite Paris Lennon. While Washington had his bright points in his rookie year, he played like a rookie in that he failed to deliver the consistent play that would make him a dependable starter in the eyes of his coaches.
Long term, Washington is still a bright talent that should move up to at least 90 tackles this season and is likely to find his way onto IDP rosters as a waiver wire option. He may find his way onto a few rosters on draft day, but he will likely be left off the draft board as he needs to show that he’s ready to make a bigger impact.

2010 IDP Fantasy Football Outlook
Daryl Washington had himself a good career with the TCU horned frogs and now he’s going to a winning team in Arizona. It didn’t take the second round pick long to start as by week one he was a starting inside linebackers against the Rams. This makes Washington an interesting waiver wire option if he can prove to be productive at some point this season.
