Lawrence Timmons | Pittsburgh Steelers | LB
2013 Experience: 7th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: Never been much of a Timmons fan and he’s the type of player who makes me take a deep breath about what he will do year to year and week to week during a season. That said, he’s been a valuable linebacker to have and he should give us LB2 numbers once again as they Steelers are going through a rebuild on the defense.
I wouldn’t expect more than LB2 numbers but playing on a Steelers team with aging veteran inside linebacker Larry Foote and James Harrison is gone, we could see low-end LB1 numbers when you factor in Timmons ability for sacks as he posted six last year.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
After a breakout 2010 campaign, Lawrence Timmons killed fantasy owners as he was a top five pick at the linebacker position and was kicked to the outside at times last year. With James Farrior gone, Timmons should be a lock to remain on the inside.
An LB2 value, if Timmons burned your team last year, it’s understandable if you don’t touch him. Still, he’s in a situation that can put him right back into a consistent LB1 producer.
Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
It was put up or shut up time for Lawrence Timmons last year and boy did he put up as he was dominant against the run and has landed himself a top five ranking at linebacker for IDP leagues. Timmons finally became the inside force I was hoping he would be for a couple seasons now and it looks like he’s ready to make a major impact in the middle for a great defense.
The Steelers let their linebackers do most of the finishing off of plays when it comes to making a big sack or just finishing of a poor attempt at trying to run the football against them. Timmons has averaged five sacks a season over the past three years and his ten pass deflections helps him out in big play leagues, setting him apart from other top ten linebackers like Curtis Lofton. This should be another strong year for Timmons as he looks to be in the early part of a nice career in the middle for Pittsburgh.

2010 IDP Fantasy Football Outlook
Lawrence Timmons was plagued by ankle problems in his first season as a full time starter. At least the young talent ended the season strong to provide hope for the future. With Farrior on the decline and 35 years old, Timmons makes for a nice value pick for IDP leagues this season.
