Dupree recorded four tackles (all solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
Dupree showed no issues with his shoulder and finished the 2019 season with 5.5 sacks in his final six games. Playing in all 16 games for the first time in his career, Dupree finished the season tied for ninth in the league -- and second on the team -- with a career-best 11.5 sacks. The Steelers will look to re-sign this unrestricted free agent, who also had four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
2015
Dupree has recorded 14.5 sacks in 38 games, including a career best six sacks last season. Concerns about his durability after missing nine games in 2017 seems to be a distant memory, and he will again start at outside linebacker for a defensive unit that led the league with 56 sacks.
Pittsburgh had high expectations for Dupree after he recorded four sacks in his rookie season. Unfortunately, his sophomore campaign got off to a rocky start, with an abdominal injury in Week 1. As a result, Dupree played in just seven games, but still managed to exceed his sack total with 4.5. So long as he is healthy, he should start at outside linebacker and put up respectable fantasy totals.
The Steelers were so pleased with Dupree's rookie performance, in which he recorded 26 tackles including four sacks, that they felt comfortable declining Jarvis Jones' 2017 fifth-year option. Dupree is again expected to start this season opposite a platoon of Jones and James Harrison at outside linebacker, and it is safe to anticipate an increase in fantasy production as Dupree becomes more comfortable on the field.
Pittsburgh’s 2015 first round pick is expected to start this season opposite Jarvis Jones at outside linebacker. Dupree is a speed-rusher looking to improve on the Steelers’ lowest sack total since 1989. He also has the ability to drop into coverage, making him an intriguing fantasy option in IDP formats.
