Dupree recorded five tackles (four solo) including a sack in Pittsburgh's 23-17 win over Arizona on Sunday.
With each sack by Dupree he adds to his career-best season total which now stands at 9.5 sacks. Heading into a Week 15 game against Buffalo the Pittsburgh defense has the third most sacks this season (48). Dupree will look to add to that total against Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen who has been sacked 33 times this season and 11 times in his last three games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
