Ndamukong Suh | Detroit Lions | DT
2013 Experience: 4th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: I think it’s safe to say Suh’s career year was his rookie season back in 2010. That year he posted 66 total tackles and took the league by storm, but since that time he’s failed to reach 40 tackles in a season and hasn’t reached double digit sacks.
To his credit he did post eight sacks in 2012 which was a bounce back from only four in 2011 and I think that’s about what we should expect from him again this year. Suh is a good player and can make an impact in the pass rush. One of the better options if you start a tackle position but I wouldn’t view him as more than a DL3 or DL4 if you start only lineman positions in your league.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
A great rookie season gave way to a major let down in year two as Ndamukong Suh just wasn’t a focused player. Possibly stardom has gotten in the way of his pro career, but when I see him have another driving incident (March 10th, news break) this offseason; it makes me concerned if he will rebound.
Will likely go as a DL3 and a DT1 and I can’t blame someone for doing that because of the upside talent he has. Consider his odds of returning to his rookie numbers, very unlikely as more attention from opposing teams.
In tackle leagues, Suh is a top five option, but I would stay away from him as a DL3 and view him as more of a backup option in standard formats.
Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Maybe some will doubt Ndamukong Suh, but I’m sure many IDP fantasy owners feel this second year lineman is the top tackle to draft this summer. Suh is just a special player and is in a great situation as his Head Coach Jim Schwartz will use him much like he did with Albert Haynesworth in Tennessee.
Moving Suh around the front line will help take double teams off him and give him better opportunities to create disruption. The key for Suh is that offensive lines and coordinators need to worry about others like Kyle Vanden Bosch, Nick Fairley and Cliff Avril and that makes it hard for them to just focus on stopping Suh.
I do believe Suh can repeat his sack total from last season, and I have no problem with IDP owners expecting at least 60 tackles from this bright star. Maybe some veterans would like to see Suh put another great year together before viewing him as a can’t miss stud, but I’m taking him in my leagues, as possibly my first IDP player off the board. Suh’s value is especially high if you’re forced to start a tackle as his high tackles plus big play ability stacks him up with the top defensive ends let alone tackles.

2010 IDP Fantasy Football Outlook
It’s going to be interesting to see what kind of an IDP fantasy football talent Ndamukong Suh will be. As far as Suh being an effective force for the Lions this season, there are no doubts, but it may be players like KVB and Cliff Avril that benefit in IDP stats because of Suh. Lets hope Suh gets off to a good start in his IDP career with at least 40 tackles and a sack or two.
