Summary

In 2014, DeAndre Levy had the best statistical year of his career. In 2015, he suffered a hip injury in preseason action that ultimately sent him to injured reserve. The Lions defense suffered mightily without their versatile linebacker. He's now healthy and cleared to play for the 2016 season. While middle linebacker is the spot into which fantasy owners were hoping Levy would be slotted, it appears the coaching staff wants to have him play the outside with Tahir Whitehead in the middle. That will ding him enough to keep him out of the elite ranks, but Levy should still come close to top-twenty linebacker numbers in tackle-heavy formats. (May 15)
