Paris Lenon | Arizona Cardinals | LB
2012 Experience: 11th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: Some guys just have the ability to last, and Paris Lenon is one of those players. No matter what the Cardinals do to bring in a better athlete, Lenon remains as the starting inside linebacker opposite Daryl Washington.
A three down linebacker, Lenon has value as a backup role player you can start in bye week situations. Expect him to keep his job throughout the season.

The replacement fo Karlos Dansby wasn’t up for filling a great linebackers shoes in all phases, but you wouldn’t know it if yo just looked at IDP fantasy points. Lenon was a great waiver wire addition and is just another example of why you don’t need to go for the Patrick Willis’s of the world, early like unseasoned IDP owners tend to do.
While it looks like the Cardinals are hoping to find a replacement for Lenon, they failed to draft anyone notable in the early rounds of this years draft. Mid round pick Quan Sturdivant could be a name of the future, but I don’t believe he would be ready to take Lenon’s job for at least another year or two. That means Lenon is ready to be a full time starter once again, and is projected to be a No.2 linebacker option in tackle heavy leagues.
The Cardinals will probably land a new quarterback in free agency, but it’s going to take some time for this offense to gel and that means the defense will be on the field a good amount of time. Look for Lenon to go well over 100 tackles on the season as he’s proven to be worth at least 120 tackles in the last three years (was with Lions) he’s been a full time starter.
