Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


There weren't many linemen who had a better year than Houston with the Raiders last year. While he was only credited with 6 sacks, there were many other pressures generated that didn't necessarily show up on the stat sheet. Where he really stood out, however, was his play against the run as the 3-4 DE rang up an amazing 56 solo tackles. Houston will help solidify the Bears run defense on early downs and may move inside on passing downs. Playing on a line opposite Jared Allen should help him improve on last year's sack numbers, but the tackle numbers will likely regress as well. Consider him a DE2 with upside as he'll be playing with better surrounding talent and in a scheme that is generally more conductive to fantasy success for defensive ends. (May 26)
