Week 2 – IDP – DB Rankings
With Eric Berry gone, Pat Chung ascends to the top of our week two rankings for defensive backs, and he’s likely to stay in that spot all year. Chung is a beast who has a nose for the football and a few weeks ago even Head Coach Bill Belichick couldn’t keep his mouth shut to the press about Chung’s abilities.
Expect both Chung and corner back Devin McCourty to have great years at their positions as they are for real and should be top ten defensive back options going forward.
Roman Harper vs. Bears – Not that I try to make a habit of putting other site’s rankings down (I’m sure many could point out my failings), but I had to laugh at the rankings ESPN had on Roman Harper this summer, when partaking in a few drafts. Harper is a stud and the Saints move him around to make plays as well as rack up over 100 tackles in a season.
George Wilson vs. Raiders - So far, so good for George Wilson as he didn’t have a huge game against the Chiefs, but that was because the Bills won time of possession. That won’t happen every week, and Wilson is going to deliver as a sleeper turned gold as the season moves along.
Kam Chancellor / Earl Thomas @ Steelers: Both safeties should have strong games once again as Seattle will continue their struggles on the road. Look to Chancellor and Thomas as must start options if you play in a deep league of twelve teams or more and start at least two defensive backs.
Sean Jones @ Vikings: So is this going to be the breakout year we’ve been waiting for? It might just be but I have Jones as the 30 ranked defensive back this week, and will be interested to see if he can come close to his 12 tackles from week one.
