2019 Fantasy Outlook
While his contract probably won't age well for the Jets, it's not Mosley's fault he was perhaps overvalued in a league where his strengths would better suit the game of 20 years ago. Even if he doesn't fit the modern ideal, Mosley is still a good player and the Jets are compelled to give him every snap he can withstand. Even if Adam Gase runs a zero-tempo offense like he did in Miami, it would be disappointing if Mosley didn't hit 1,000 snaps this year. His standout tackle and sack production are mainstream currency in IDP leagues. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Mosley didn't practice this week, and was listed as doubtful to suit up for the game, so this news isn't surprising. The Alabama product will miss his fourth straight game, and Blake Cashman likely would continue to see a sizable defensive snap count for Week 6.

Mosley is one of those players who is so steady you might eventually take him for granted, reliably producing in the 130-tackle range while establishing Baltimore as one of the league's most consistent run defenses in the process. He has just one sack in the last two years but had seven in his first two, so positive regression to the mean could be in order. While Mosley sometimes doesn't look the best in coverage, Baltimore isn't in any position to lessen his snap count, which reliably exceeds 1,000 per year.
Mosley is a bit of a durability worry after missing time with calf, thigh and hamstring injuries last year, but he managed to suit up for all 16 games in the two years prior. When healthy, the 2014 first-round pick is as steady as they come, providing a reliable 100-tackle pace, with a healthy supplement of sacks (seven in his first two years) and interceptions (six in three seasons). He probably doesn't have much upside -- Mosley's career high is 133 tackles on 1,065 snaps -- but it would take an injury to make him a liability as an investment.
Mosley's first two years in the NFL don't hint at a great IDP ceiling, but his steadiness stands out to the point that he's still a low-end LB1 or top-shelf LB2. His career high for tackles (133 in 2014) was done on 1,065 snaps, and given that he's unlikely to exceed 1,100, that 130-tackle range seems like his general cap. Still, he supplements his adequate tackle production (250 in two seasons) with above average pass-rushing activity, heading into his third year with seven sacks to his credit. He dealt with some injuries in college but hasn't missed a game as a pro.
The Ravens drafted Mosley 17th overall last year, and he was all Baltimore could have asked for. Not only did he rank eighth in the league in tackles, with eight for loss, but Mosley also intercepted two passes and improved as a pass rusher by logging three sacks in the final six weeks. After playing 1,065 snaps last year — a huge total for a rookie — Mosley likely will get all the work he can handle in 2015. He underwent a wrist surgery this offseason, but is expected to be ready for training camp.
Even though he's a rookie, there's every reason to believe Mosley will approach LB2 relevance in most IDP formats. The 17th overall pick in this year's draft, Mosley showed exceptional skill at Alabama, displaying ideal play recognition while making plays both as a blitzer and in coverage. The Ravens likely selected him with the intention of making him a three-down player, even ahead of 2013 second-round pick Arthur Brown. Durability is a bit of a concern with Mosley, however – he had significant injuries to his hip, shoulder and elbow while at Alabama. Even if he doesn't play 16 games, Mosley should make his way to 100 tackles.
