The Top 10 CB/S
Take A Ways: You will be hard-pressed to find a pre-season list with the same top 10 fantasy Defensive Backs. Some fantasy footballers will be surprised to see Eric Berry and his floppy ACL at the top of this list. However, us seasoned vets know the best all around DB has had a full year to recover and should have no problem building on his sparkling rookie season in 2010.
The list is pretty explainable; most of the top players are young and will have the “leash” taken off. Players like Morgan Burnett Kam Chancellor broke out in large way in their first experiences as starters in each of their 2nd years. I am very big on tackles when it comes to the defensive back spot, because this shows consistency. You want to fill your team with consistent scorers from the IDP perspective. Too often I see people draft high-INT cornerbacks, only to see them have 5 that year. It’s feast or famine with those types. Use your defense as the anchor of your fantasy team, and you will always give yourself a chance to take home the belt.
One last thing, pay close attention to Roman Harpers numbers. What jumps out is his ability to get to the QB. The Saints allow him to create havoc from every spot on the field, and this can be very beneficial to your fantasy squad.
