After three years on the job it is obvious C.J. Mosley is not going to be the next Rey Lewis. He is however a quality inside linebacker and a player who will be the centerpiece of Baltimore's defense for the next several years. Over his first two seasons Mosley recorded good but not great tackle numbers, averaging about 81 solo stops and 42 assists. In 2016 those numbers slipped a bit due to his missing a couple of games and then playing the second half of the season with a sore shoulder. His fantasy value has consistently received a strong boost from the big play columns. That did not change last year when Mosley accounted for 5 turnovers (4 on interceptions) and defended 8 passes. For the first time in his career he failed to land a sack in 2016. This was mostly because he was used differently in the scheme than in previous years. With 7 sacks over his first two seasons, we know Mosley has the ability to get home on the blitz. The sore shoulder probably contributed to the missing sack numbers as well. Mosley had surgery on the shoulder in the offseason and the organization does not have any long term concerns. He will miss some of the off season program and may be held back early in training camp but the team expects Mosley in the lineup for week one. The potential of a lingering shoulder issue is somewhat of a concern from a fantasy perspective. Some owners will drop Mosley a few slots based on the possibility of re-injury. On the other hand he has already shown the ability to play through it if need be. All things considered it should be safe to slot Mosley in the range of a quality second starter. (July 7)
