Ndamukong Suh (#49 Projected Rank) is Not Worth a Roster Spot

REST OF SEASON FANTASY VALUE

He is expected to be a valuable fantasy asset, but our projections say he is overrated. He is owned in 32 percent of CBS leagues and this translates to an expected defensive lineman rank of #19. He is projected to average 4.5 FPs which translates to a position rank of #49. With a lower than expected projection rank there are other defensive linemans that are projected for more points that may be available via trade or off the waiver wire. Linval Joseph (25 FP), Brandon Graham (26 FP), Everson Griffen (28 FP), Ezekiel Ansah (29 FP), and Jabaal Sheard (26 FP) are all better options than Ndamukong Suh. His value goes up if you do not need him in lineups this week. Ndamukong Suh is a better option based on his projected average rank which is #28.
