2012 Experience: 2nd Season

IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: A surprise breakout player, Jabaal Sheard took on a high snap count for a rookie, and proved to use he’s a worthy DL2. With Phil Taylor out for most of the season, we could see Sheard’s tackle number rise.

Sheard can give you some big plays and maintain a consistent tackle number throughout the season. I find him to be a better pick than more traditional big-play ends like Cliff Avril, who need live and die off of getting to the quarterback.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

With the Browns switching over to a 4-3 defense, Jabaal Sheard has a future as a defensive end. In fact, the thought is that Sheard could be a starter as soon as week one, but we won’t know that until rookies get a chance to workout with their teams, and Sheard proves he can win a job in the preseason. Decent speed makes Sheard an option off the waiver wire in IDP fantasy football leagues at least for big play scoring, if the Browns can hang with teams and stay in football games.

For now, don’t look to Sheard as an option on draft day as the Browns and Sheard have much to prove and those question marks won’t be known until we get into the regular season. For dynasty leagues, Sheard is an later option to select in rookie drafts but he should get plenty of playing time as a rookie, and that hold value if you need help for bye weeks.
