Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Marcell Dareus has been a frustrating player at times because he clearly has enough ability to be one of the very best at his position. There were clear signs last year that he was starting to reach his potential as he posted 70 combined tackles and 7.5 sacks, but he was benched late in the year for being late to team meetings and then arrested in the offseason for marijuana possession. It was apparently his first violation of the league's substance abuse policy, but he could still be susceptible to a suspension. It's time for the former 3rd overall pick to mature and become a truly dominant player. If that happens, the Bills defensive line may be too much for most teams to handle. Either way, he should once again be considered a clear fantasy starter at a position which is not very deep. (May 24)
