Sean Lee | Dallas Cowboys | LB
2013 Experience: 4th Season
Fantasy Football Outlook: Much like Colin McCarthy, Lee can be a quality option for IDP leagues but injuries have held him back. First it was a hand injury that slowed him down in the second half of the 2011 season and then a foot injury cost him the final ten games of last year.
This is a problem and as we’ve seen with other players like Antonio Gates and Pierre Garcon, foot injuries can linger from year to year.
We need to keep an eye on Lee in training camp, but if he’s healthy should make a nice adjustment from the Cowboys 3-4 base to the Tampa-2 defense they will employ under Marty Kiffin. Bruce Carter could be the better option on the weak-side as he will play Derrick Brooks and Lance Briggs role in this defense.
Still, Lee is a respectable LB2 option as long as his foot problems are costing him time in camp and all is well.

2012 IDP Fantasy Projection
After his week one performance against the Jets, Sean Lee was the talk of IDP circles and the number-one waiver wire option off the board. We didn’t know if Lee took over in the starting role, but when he was on the field with the communications helmet on, it was clear he was in the lineup to stay.
A wrist injury later in the season proved why, as Bradie James and Keith Brooking looked horrible in pass protection.
No lower than a LB2, Lee should continue to thrive as a three down linebacker, as he’s a great asset in pass protection. He could hold low LB1 value this year.
I also like how Lee has taken over a leadership role in the offseason; he clearly seems like a natural leader, maybe not the most vocal but he leads with this play. This will be a good player for many years and dynasty owners need to be aware of that.
