Calais Campbell | Arizona Cardinals | DL
2013 Experience: 6th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: One of the best in the business over the past few seasons, Campbell is a top ten option at defensive end. We should expect good things from Campbell again as he can help your fantasy squad in a variety of ways.
The staple for Campbell is his solo tackles as he’s had around 50 for the past few seasons, even though he missed three games a year ago.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
Like most IDP fantasy owners, I’ve been conditioned over time to fear playing 3-4 ends, but Calais Campbell is one of the exceptions. Campbell continues to put up better numbers since he came out of college.
Wouldn’t be surprised if he had another career year, but at some point he’s likely hit his ceiling in this scheme, and I have his projected stats tailed back a little from his 2011 performance. Mainly sacks is the problem, as I just can’t see him expanding to the double-digit range.
Anyway, Campbell is a respectable DL2 play and a great DL3 if fellow owners in your league pass on him because of his situation.
Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Because the Cardinals offense was in shambles last season, Calais Campbell’s tackle numbers went to a career high with 60 on the season. While Campbell is a decent add for depth on your IDP roster, if the team should land a quarterback like Kevin Kolb, I don’t believe you will see the Cardinals on the field as much this season and that won’t help Campbell.

2010 IDP Fantasy Football Outlook
Calais Campbell should be ready for a breakout season in his third year as he will get consistent opportunities to make plays in the Cardinals’ defense. Now that the Cardinals have first round pick nose tackle Dan Williams to anchor the middle Campbell should get more help to create sacks and tackles. With defenses giving attention to opposite defensive end Darnell Dockett, look for Campbell to step up and make plays to help his team.
