2013 Experience: 4th Season

Fantasy Football Outlook: While is prediction for 50 sacks is freaking ridiculous, Hardy has pushed himself into DL1 status after his 61 tackles and 11 sacks from 2012. Coming into a contract season Hardy has a lot to play for and perhaps that’s why he setting the bar high on his expectations for this season.

Still a young player, Hardy is set for a big pay day on the open-market next spring if he puts together another productive year. I think that will happen and I like him better as an IDP option than fellow teammate Charles Johnson because of his tackle production.

What I want to see from Hardy is if he can post close to or over 10 sacks again this season as his career high was 4 before last year. That said, it’s not uncommon to see lineman take a few years before their sack total spikes, so expect Hardy to have another terrific season.

2012 IDP Fantasy Projection

If we knew the Panthers would stick with a with a 4-3 scheme throughout the season, Greg Hardy would be a respectable DL3 selection. I figure that will happen, but Hardy has been an inconsistent player in his career, and it’s hard to know if he will improve on last years numbers.

With Charles Johnson as the other bookend, Hardy should continue to see more one-on-one matchups vs. opposing pass protections will look to Johnson as the first man to chip.

That said, I’m likely staying away from his situation unless Hardy falls to me as a DL5, because I find him to be a frustrating player to own at this time.
