1JJ WattDE25HOU3-4111111Watt is the best DE in the game, your team has a significant weekly advantage if you roster him
2Robert QuinnDE24STL4-3225523.2The 2013 sack leader didn't record a sack until week 7 but continually pressured the QB and finished strong.
3Chandler JonesDE25NE3-4334333.2Impressive tackle volumes are a result of NE's dynamic defensive front, including some OLB usage.
4Jason Pierre-PaulDE26FA652274.4JPP was a stud in 2015, and should be franchise tagged while Kiwanuka departs this offseason.
5Calais CampbellDE26ARI3-4543484.8On the growing trend of elite IDP 3-4 DEs, Campbell posts high tackles for a DE, but has a new DC in 2015.
6Carlos DunlapDE26CIN4-3766645.8Dunlap's a consistent tackler and excelled in the absence of Michael Johnson.
7Everson GriffenDE27MIN4-3478756.2Griffen broke out in 2014 and should return to a similar role in Zimmer's 2nd year as head coach.
8Ezekiel AnsahDE25DET4-39871368.6On limited snaps, Ansah hit both double digit sacks and 40+ tackles. Elite potential is there if he played 90% snaps.
9Muhammad WilkersonDE25NYJ3-4891191510.4Wilkerson should play the Calais Campbell role in Todd Bowles 3-4.
10Cameron JordanDE25NO3-410111281711.6Jordan relies on sacks while posting modest tackle volumes, limiting his upside and consistency.
11Rob NinkovichDE31NE3-4141213111012Similar to Chandler Jones, NE's 3-4 allows Ninkovich to rack up tackles, partially as an OLB.
12Cameron WakeDE33MIA4-311141617913.412 sacks and positive PFF grades didn't make up for meager tackles in 2014, as he was a DE2 in most formats.
13Greg HardyDE26FA1719101514156The elite talent is a FA and is appearing less likely to face suspension in 2015.
14Fletcher CoxDE24PHI3-435109141616.8Cox is a solid tackle producer but needs to add sacks to enter the truly elite tiers.
15Olivier VernonDE24MIA4-3152115191817.6Although not dreadful, Vernon's season was disappointing after his 2013 breakout.
16Sheldon RichardsonDE24NYJ3-4181320182017.8Richardson had a great early career under Ryan. We'll see how things look Todd Bowles.
17Gerald McCoyDT27TBTampa 2201617162518.8McCoy signed a 100 million dollar contract and excelled in the Bucs Tampa-2 when healthy.
18Mario WilliamsDE30BUF3-4131741121219-5The switch to a 3-4 is a major red flag, as Williams will likely begin 2015 as a 31-yr-old OLB.
19Jurrell CaseyDE25TEN3-4241514242921.2Elite tackle #s and 7 sacks made Casey a DE1 and a top 6 play in tackle heavy scoring.
20Charles JohnsonDE28CAR4-3322418201321.45A decent finish didn't make up for a dreadful start in 2014, but 72 QB hurries/hits hint at what could have been.
21Chris LongDE29STL4-3161821282621.8Playing too little and too late in 2014, we know Long should play better next year.
22Corey LiugetDE24SD3-4262219291923Boasting great tackle volumes and moderate sacks, Liugets a great value in tackle-heavy scoring.
23Jerry HughesDE26FA232038261123.6Hughes is a FA and a risk for becoming an OLB if he sticks around in Rex Ryan's 3-4.
24Michael JohnsonDE28TBTampa 2252726212124After getting a big contract, Johnson's production dropped after leaving Cincy.
25Demarcus WareDE32DEN3-4122542232224.8Similar to Mario Williams, changing schemes will likely make Ware an aging OLB.
26Cameron HeywardDE25PIT3-4223323272325.6Heyward was a very consistent, low ceiling DE2-3 in a starting role, which shouldn't change much in 2015.
27DeMontre MooreDE22NYG4-3342322433331Moore is a break out candidate for 2015, as NYG seems likely to move on from Kiwanuka.
28Michael BennettDE29SEA4-3372625422731.45Increased snaps and positive real-life grades didn't translate to great IDP #s, as Bennett remained an DE3 in SEA.
29Marcell DareusDT25BUF3-4272947323033Dareus will likely be Rex Ryan's NT, which has not been fruitful for IDP in recent year.
30Sen'Derrick MarksDT28JAX4-3363132303833.435 tackles and 9 sacks were enough for a top 6 finish among DTs.
31Jared AllenDE32CHI3-4404451102433.8-3Joining Mario Williams and Demarcus Ware, Allen could become an aging OLB in CHI's new DEF in 2015.
32Kyle WilliamsDT30BUF3-4293027333431-year-old Williams' role will change with the arrival of Rex Ryan. Should remain productive, but may be reclassified to DE.
33Aaron DonaldDT23STL4-3503628282834He set the standard for rookie DTs in 2014 and could push to be top 3 at the position.
34Willie YoungDE29CHI3-4313446313134.6Youngs breakout was brief and is likely over, as he'll be an OLB in Fangio's 3-4.
35Kroy BiermanDE29FA3837312235.8Bierman was somehow the DL tackle leader in 2014 despite playing limited snaps. He's a free agent currently.
36Geno AtkinsDT26CIN4-3282829633236Hopefully Atkins' slow 2014 was health related, but he's been replaced by Gerald McCoy as the best DT.
37Justin TuckDE31OAK4-3194039483937It looks like Tuck's production in 2013 was contract driven as he was a DE3 in 2014.
38Cedric ThorntonDE26RFA473236364338.82 consecutive years with only 1 sack are discouraging, but he remains a high floor option thanks to tackles.
39Demarcus LawrenceDE23DALTampa 2543524473438.8A fractured foot ruined his rookie opportunity in Dallas. They'll still need him to contribute in his sophomore campaign.
40Jason HatcherDE32WAS3-43040454442Hatcher's #s were underwhelming in a his first year as a 3-4 DE. He's got 3 years left on his contract.
41Desmond BryantDE29CLE3-44543343742Bryant was the DL to own in CLE in 2014. Unfortunately, that wasn't saying much.
42Ndamukong SuhDT28FA395633493542.43Suh posted another decent year, especially in DT-required formats, but he's a free agent currently.
43Akiem HicksDE25NO3-4214643644042.8Hicks' 2 sacks wasn't a mistake, as he only posted 25 hits/hurries.
44Datone JonesDE24GB3-4593837404143Jones was given a tiny role in 2014, playing drastically <50% snaps.
45Cliff AvrilDE28SEA4-3334549494444Avrill will still be involved in Seattle's DE rotation, sacks should be there but hard to count on tackles.
46Cornellius CarradineDE26SF3-430353744.25A new coaching staff and aging (retiring?) Justin Smith could help Carradine finally breakout.
47Sharrif FloydDT22MIN4-34245384644.6Playing for Mike Zimmer, Floyd has top 5 DT potential
48Dion JordanDE24MIA4-3414840554545.8Jordan was productive per snap, but had too small of a role to assess. His dynasty stock is falling fast.
49Kony EalyDE23CAR4-34842523646Ealy had a rough rookie year, but is a potential 2015 breakout player depending on Hardy situation.
50Lamarr HoustonDE27CHI3-4554135574246After getting a big contract, Houston was underwhelming in 2014. He'll likely be a 3-4 DE this year.
51Wallace GilberryDE30CIN4-34443445046.4-5Gilberry played decent snaps opposite Dunlap, but got his only 2 sacks in week 1.
52Kerry WynnDE24NYG4-31848-5There's enough uncertainy on the NYG DL, that a young talent like Wynn could land a bigger role in 2015
53Andre BranchDE25JAX4-35139654750.8Branch missed a lot of time in 2014 for injury and failed to earn a compelling role.
54Brian RobisonDE31MIN4-346515851.6Zimmer's scheme clearly gave more tackle opportunities to Griffen in year 1.
55Dee FordDE23KC3-45350486148524Ford will be buried on the depth chart for 1-2 yrs may be designated a LB.
56Clinton McDonaldDT28TBTampa 23852There's hope for the only Tampa DE who didn't disappoint last year, as Adrian Clayborn may be moving on.
57Chis ClemonsDE33JAX4-3524552.4Posting 4 weeks with 0 combined tackles in 2014, the floor was low for Clemmons.
58Mathias KiwanukaDE31NYG4-352545452.6Kiwi is subject to offseason movement and turns 32 before the 2015 season.
59Jeremy MinceyDE31DALTampa 24152.6Dallas is desperate for help up front, but also gets a healthy Demarcus Lawrence back next year.
60Dontari PoeDT24KC3-456514953
61Margus HuntDE27CIN4-360475853.6Very raw, but physically gifted, 27-years-old is a bit old for a "project" buried on his own depth chart.
62George SelvieDE27FA436754
63Quinton DialDT24SF3-44854With Justin Smith winding down, there's room for SF's youth to climb the depth chart.
64Justin SmithDT35SF3-458526054.635-years-old, Smith enters perhaps his final contract year in 2015 and could retire this offseason.
65Robert AyersDE29NYG4-361555655
66Ryan DavisDE26JAX4-35355
67Adrian ClaybornDE26FA496855.4Clayborn was trending down in TB even before suffering a torn biceps.
