Summary

The signing of Justin Houston fills a large need for the Colts in terms of generating pass rush. Despite hitting 30 years of age this year, he's still playing at a high level. Some wonder how he will do moving from an outside linebacker role to having his hand in the dirt as a 4-3 defensive end. Fantasy general managers should rest easy, as Houston played with his hand down in nickel and dime packages in Kansas City. Houston will not have to worry about dropping into coverage in as many situations, freeing him to rush the passer. This should be a positive change for his general managers. Double digit sacks are well within reach for Houston, despite being on a new team. (May 20)
