Steelers place franchise tag on Bud Dupree

The Steelers are placing the franchise tag on linebacker Bud Dupree.

Fantasy Impact

No surprise here as the fifth-year linebacker enjoyed a breakout season in 2019 and the Steelers said coming to an agreement with Dupree was their top priority. Pass-rushers like him are tough to find and the Pittsburgh D/ST will benefit from retaining him ext season.

Bud Dupree contract 'top priority' for Steelers this offseason

Re-signing linebacker Bud Dupree is a "top priority" for the Steelers this offseason according to the team.

Fantasy Impact

Both the owner and head coach have said this, so it appears that something will likely get done, either a long-term contract or the franchise tag. Dupree was one of the top players on the Steelers' 2019 defense which picked up steam as the season progressed and turned into one of the best units in the league. They figure to be a popular D/ST in 2020 fantasy football drafts.

Bud Dupree records a season-high in tackles

Bud Dupree logged 11 solo tackles and one assisted tackle in a 28-10 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Dupree concluded his impressive rookie season with the most tackles he's ever made at the professional level. Despite flopping for most of the second half of the year, Bush's talent is evident and will be a key contributor for Pittsburgh in 2020. Expect big things from the young linebacker next year.

Bud Dupree and the Steelers fall in Baltimore

Bud Dupree registered four solo tackles, one TFL, one sack, and two QB hits, though the Steelers lost to Ravens, 28-10.

Fantasy Impact

After failing to live up to his draft stock for the first four years of his career, Dupree finally put the pieces together for his finest season yet. He essentially broke every individual record of his and even topped out at an impressive 11.5 sacks on the year. Though he may no longer be a Steeler by opening kickoff next year, Dupree should firmly be on your radar no matter what team he signs for this offseason.

Bud Dupree injures shoulder in Week 16

Bud Dupree managed two solo tackles, five solo tackles, three TFLs, one sack, and one QB hit, though the Steelers still fell to the Jets, 16-10.

Fantasy Impact

Dupree is in the midst of his breakout season and has been a valuable asset for both the Steelers and fantasy owners all year. However, he did injure his shoulder and his status for Week 17 remains in question. The Steelers will need him as they fight for their playoff lives against the Ravens next Sunday.
