Summary

Timmons is a talented player with the ability to rush the passer, cover tight ends and running backs in the passing game and stand up strong against the run. 2010 was his most productive statistical season to date. That year he finished with career highs in tackles at 96 as well as passes defended with 10. It is Timmons has consistently turned in good tackle totals but it is his big play ability which makes him particularly intriguing for fantasy owners. Over the past six seasons he has recovered 4 fumbles, forced 11, intercepted 8 passes and recorded 28 sacks. Timmons has consistently finished among the top 20 linebackers over his career including a final ranking of twelve last season. His only downside in fantasy terms is some week to week inconsistency. He is not the player to target as your number one linebacker but is an excellent option as a number two. (May 27)
