1Morgan BurnettSS26GB3-41112The tackle leader for DBs in 2014, he's got an enourmously high floor and 3 years left in GB. He could use more big plays.
2Harrison SmithFS26MIN4-33421He's a proven DB1 in Zimmer's defense, where he should have a productive contract year in 2015.
3Jonathan CyprienSS24JAX4-35263Second in 2014 tackles to only Burnett, Cyprien didn't miss a snap from week 3 onward in 2014. 2 contract yrs left.
4Reshad JonesSS27MIA4-32385He was a clear DB1 post-suspension in 2014. 3 contract years remain in MIA.
5Eric WeddleFS30SD3-445543Weddle's been a consistent volume tackler for years and should continue for 3 more in SD.
6Barry ChurchSS27DALTampa 27647For the past 2 years, Church has benefited from a battered front 7. Still, he's been productive and consistent.
7Tyvon BranchSS28KC3-487764KC is a sweet landing spot for the oft-injured in-the-box safety. Good chance to be a DB1 as long as Berry's absent.
8Deone BucannonSS22ARI3-468138Assisting heavily in run defense, his fantasy points per snap are impressive, but he needs more snaps to be an elite option.
9Antoine BetheaSS30SF3-410912114SFs front 7 is suddenly a mess and Bethea stands to be one of the main benificiaries.
10TJ McDonaldFS24STL4-3121010184McDonald's played well ahead of Barron in 2014. It's likely STL wants him to succeed.
11Kam ChancellorSS26SEA4-311121110Chancellor's a high floor player by tackle volume, but has limited weekly upside in SEA. 3 contract years remaining.
12Rashad JohnsonSS29ARI3-41517314Johnson's proven he can be an efficient every-down every-down SS, but he's in a very crowded secondary.
13Donte WhitnerSS29CLE3-4141615133He was a reliable, but low ceiling, option in his first year in CLE. Turns 30 this offseason with 3 contract years remaining.
14Hasean Clinton-DixFS22GB3-41819812He quickly claimed an every-down FS role as a rookie, but flashed some very low floors, especially late in the season.
15Earl ThomasFS25SEA4-31615169-10Thomas is a steady option, but has limited upside in SEA, posting only 2 weeks in 2014 with double digit tkls. 4 contract years remaining.
16Charles WoodsonSS38OAK4-32018202611The 38-year-old was a top 3 DB in most scoring formats and has resigned with OAK for 1 more year.
17TJ WardSS28DEN3-419231816Ward's 2014 performance was a marked improvement over DEN's DB play in 2013, but the system only allowed him to produce DB3 #s.
18Robert BlantonSS25MIN4-324211724If Blanton returns to start in MIN, he'll rack up tackles at SS. He's a candidate for replacement, though.
19Calvin PryorSS22NYJ3-49114617Not an every-down rookie, the release of Dawan Landry likely means a bigger role in 2015,
20William MooreSS29ATL4-3171338236He's averaged >6 fantasy pts/game each of past 4 years, but couldn't stay healthy in 2014. He'll be 30 with 3 contract years remaining
21Bernard PollardSS30FA13203620After requesting release from the Titans, the 30 yr old SS has found a cold free agency coming off an Achilles injury.
22James IhedigboSS31DET4-326222140Numerous injuries and low-floor performances hindered an otherwise impressive 2014 for the 31-year-old. He should be productive if he can stay healthy.
23Mark BarronSS25STL4-323242619-16An undeniable physical talent, he didn't land a big role after being traded and may end up as a FS opposite McDonald.
24Reggie NelsonFS31CIN4-322272625Cincy's one team where FS often out-tackles SS recently, allowing the 31-year-old Nelson to be a borderline DB1 in 2014.
25Kenny VaccaroSS23NO3-430262215-5Vaccaro struggled and was even benched during his sophomore year. He could gain a starting gig back, but owners need a backup plan.
26Michael GriffinFS30TEN3-42151922Griffin was a DB1 in 2014, but questionable real-life play, a shoulder surgery, and arrival of DaNoris Searcy are all red flags.
27Mike AdamsFS34IND3-439311946The 34-yr-old was inconsistent in 2014, but produced some high tackle weeks.
28Alterraun VernerCB26TBTampa 232282932Lovie's Tampa-2 defense has made Verner one of the more consistent CB options.
29Jairus ByrdFS28NO3-4342927314A torn lateral meniscus ended Byrd's 1st yr of a 6yr contract in NO, where he was an every down player, averaging 5 TKLs/game.
30Da'Norris SearcySS26TEN3-43114494112SS for TEN was a boon for Bernard Pollard and Searcy could recreate that success if he can prove competent in coverage.
31Ryan MundySS30CHI3-425393221By staying healthy, Mundy was a borderline DB1 in 2014, but Rolle's arrival creates a messy picture in 2015.
32Antrel RolleFS32CHI3-427324033Rolle figures to start SS, but could give way to the younger combination of Mundy/Vereen if he struggles.
33Prince AmukamaraCB25NYG4-341362329He's been an increasingly consistent option at CB, but suffered a torn Biceps and will return for a 2015 contract year.
34Tyrann MathieuFS22ARI3-429373527-4After MCL/ACL repair, he never became an every down player before needing thumb surgery. A 2015 rebound is clouded by a crowded secondary.
35Ron ParkerFS27KC3-445441448Parker will start FS opposite Branch, where it may be difficult to recreate 2014 production.
36Jonathan JosephCB30HOU3-438432449Joseph's still one of the better CBs to own in IDP, but trended down over the 2nd half of the 2014 season.
37DJ SwearingerFS23HOU3-428255528-15Mediocre tackle numbers and meager big plays limited the upside for HOU's young SS in 2014.
38Dashon GoldsonFS30TBTampa 235384134-10The Bucs might not want to pay Goldson's fat salary for 3 more years. Also, Lovie's Tampa-2 might not be Safety-friendly for IDP.
39Eric BerrySS26KC3-447283727Berry's left the team to seek treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma. He's been a DB1, but has bigger battles to fight for now.
40Malcolm JenkinsFS27PHI3-4374545303 INTs in his first 3 weeks of 2014 padded his stats and masked some very low floor weeks.
41E.J. GainesCB23STL4-3522535The CB performed well in his rookie year.
42Glover QuinFS29DET4-333485111By staying healthy, Quin finished as a DB3, despite a relatively low ceiling. 3 contract years remain.
43Brock VereenFS22CHI3-433307052Vereen failed to amaze in his rookie year, but did claim an every-down role in the final 3 games. Rolle's arrival doesn't help.
44Bradley McDougaldFS24TBTampa 230McDougald would need to fend off Wright, Jennings, and Conte for relevant snaps.
45Major WrightSS26TBTampa 235516723Returning to Lovie's lineup with Conte makes both players tenuous IDP investments.
46DeAngelo HallCB31WAS3-44842506213A potential move to safety could increase Hall's overall IDP production, but decimates his value in CB-required leagues.
47Kemal IshmaelSS23ATL4-33750The 7th round pick produced nicely when Moore was sidelined, but he's more likely to play FS in 2015 if at all.
48Dawan LandrySS32FA43534756With Calvin Pryor in line for bigger roles in 2015, Landry's best IDP option is likely on another team.
49Leodis McKelvinCB29BUF3-43968The talented corner's 2014 ended prematurely with a fractured ankle. He has 2 contract years left and turns 30 in Sept.
50J.J. WilcoxSS24DALTampa 2415254Decent tackle opportunities were present in 2014, but he wasn't able to take advantage of them.
51Louis DelmasFS27MIA4-340466057An every down player next to Rashad Jones, Delmas is versatile veteran with limited upside.
52LaRon LandrySS30FA425247-1630 yrs old and twice suspended for PEDs, the Colts cut ties and an every-down role is seeming extremely far fetched.
53George IlokaSS24CIN4-349347363Iloka is a young every-down SS, who helped the Bengals more than IDP owners in 2014.
54Kyle FullerCB23CHI3-446407136After a decent rookie year, Chicago's iconic defensive scheme that produced many great IDP CBs is changing this offseason.
55Patrick ChungFS27NE3-453Patrick Chung was the NE DB to own in 2014. Unfortnuately, that's not saying much.
56Eric ReidFS23SF3-45453During a rough 2014, Reid only exceeded 4 combined tackles twice and carries multiple concussions.
57Aaron WilliamsFS24BUF3-454594Not an every down player, the weekly floor was very low for Williams in 2014.
58Tony JeffersonSS23ARI3-45564Jefferson will struggle to get relevant snaps behind Johnson, Buccannon and Mathieu in his 2015 contract year.
59Matt ElamSS23BAL3-448625512A 2014 breakout candidate, Elam flopped in all categories. His role is minimal in BAL.
60Jason McCourtyCB27TEN3-43650TEN has made some productive CBs and McCourty was one of them in 2014.
61Roman HarperSS32CAR4-35958-174 INTs saved an otherwise disappointing 2014 stat line for the 32-yr-old, who only has 1 year of guaranteed $ left.
62Devin McCourtyFS27NE3-4496560He's a great safety, but it just hasn't translated to great IDP production.
63Kendrick LewisFS26FA6142A free agent after starting hot, but consistently producing meager tackle counts over the final 10 games of 2014.
64Rahim MooreFS25HOU3-463-12A center-fielder type, Moore isn't a safe bet for top IDP #s unless he reels in a bunch of INTs.
65Chris ConteFS26TBTampa 264Numerous concussions have been a problem, but reuniting with Lovie isn't terrible for Conte's value.
66Shamarko ThomasSS24PIT3-46738-19Thomas' 2014 was non-existent IDP-wise. He may need to more than a Polamalu exit to become relevant in his 2 contract years.
67Shawn WilliamsSS23CIN4-368-10Williams would need an injury to Nelson or Iloka for IDP relevance, and even then it's not a slam dunk.
68Husain AbdullahSS29KC3-44444An every-down FS for most of 2014, he'll have to compete for snaps in his 2015 contract year
69Troy PolamaluSS33PIT3-469-7Maybe 1 year left in the tank? His floor and ceiling were less than ideal in 2014.
70Mike MitchellFS27PIT3-47239-31Mitchell stayed healthy, but had non-existent upside in PIT, where a Polamalu retirement could change the landscape during Mitchell's 4 remainign contract years.
71Jason VerrettCB23SD3-44770After a strong start, the rookie CB was placed on IR with a torn labrum.
72Nate AllenFS27OAK4-374FS opposite Charles Woodson is an unexciting landing spot for an unexciting IDP.
73Dez SouthwardFS24ATL4-350Lowery's departure could open the door for Southward or Ishmael to claim the FS spot in 2015.
74Charles TillmanCB34FA7566Tillman's been one of the best IDP CBs, but finished his 2014 campaign and will likely be with a new team for his 34-yr-old season.
