Dawan Landry | Jacksonville Jaguars | DB
2012 Experience: 7th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: I wasn’t sold on Dawan Landry holding DB2 or even DB3 status with his move to Jacksonville last year, mainly because of the linebacker additions in free agency.
Landry put another fine season together and we can safely view him as a quality DB3 with DB2 potential.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
At one point, I thought the Ravens would bring back Dawan Landry but in the end, the veteran landed in Jacksonville as one of the top safeties to sign in free agency. As it stands in the early portion of August, it appears Landry is likely to flip over to free safety to allow youngster Courtney Greene to remain as the strong-side safety.
While Landry is still worth owning in IDP fantasy leagues, I would look to him as more of a No.3 or even 4 defensive back to add on your squad if he does end up at free safety. Landry was great last year on the strong-side, but he’s played both positions in the past, and it makes sense to have him as a free-safety to roam the field, and quarterback the defense.

We all love and admire Ed Reed for his play-making ability and the heart and passion, he brings to the game, but it is fellow safety and teammate Dawan Landry that you’ll want to target for your IDP fantasy football team. Reed plays the free safety position and while that is good for making plays, it’s not so great for racking up the tackles and that is the life line of any good defensive back for IDP scoring.
Landry took his game to another level last season in terms of his stat production with 111 tackles on the season, and he is now set to land a nice contract for himself in free agency this summer. The Ravens are expected to be aggressive in signing Landry, and with so many respectable strong safeties in free agency this year, Landry may take less than he hoped for to stay with the Ravens.
While Landry finished as a top ten defensive back last year in many leagues, I would look to him as a respectable No.2 defensive back to own this year, if he stays with the Ravens.
