RankPlayerPos.AgeTeamBase DefenseGary BeaudetteBill CerviSean KirbyAvgChangeSkinny
1Harrison SmithFS25MIN4-31131.7Any DB will post a few down weeks. Smith's no exception, but has given no reason to doubt him as the overall #1 at his position.
2Morgan BurnettSS25GB3-42312.01st in tackles among safeties through 8 weeks, there's arguably no higher floor DB.
3Jonathan CyprienSS24JAX4-33222.3Cyprien hasn't missed a snap in weeks 3-8 and has posted 4 weeks with over 7 combined tackles in that time.
4Earl ThomasFS25SEA4-35444.3Thomas hasn't missed a game in 4 seasons, but probably won't break an 80 tackle ceiling due to an efficient defense and stingy home stat crew
5Barry ChurchSS26DALTampa 26856.3Similar to 2013, Church is playing behind a battered front 7. He won't reach last years' tackle counts, but the floor is high.
6Eric WeddleFS29SD3-49667.0Weddle's been a consistent volume tackler for years and enters a contract year.
7Eric BerrySS25KC3-48978.0When healthy, Berry's an easy top 10 DB with nice consistency and upside. Unfortunately, he hasn't been healthy in 2014.
8Kenny VaccaroSS23NO3-4105118.7He's struggled in pass coverage as an every down player, but has produced decent IDP numbers with 36 tackles and 1 sack in 8 weeks.
9Reshad JonesSS26MIA4-341488.74Came roaring back with 24 solos in 3 games after a 4 game suspension.
10Mark BarronSS25STL4-377149.3-6A trade to STL raises questions about Barron's value. He should be an improvement over TJ McDonald, who had some IDP value.
11Tyrann MathieuFS22ARI3-41210910.3After MCL/ACL repair, it's unclear when the young FS/slot corner will again be an every down payer.
12Kam ChancellorSS26SEA4-311121011.0A consistent, yet low ceiling option, he's been on a lot of injury reports, but it hasn't slowed him down...yet.
13Donte WhitnerSS29CLE3-413161213.7He's got a decent tackle floor in Pettine's Def and should provide a couple more double digit tackle games this year.
14Antoine BetheaSS30SF3-415181315.33Surprisingly high tackle opportunities in SF have made Bethea a nice option in his age 30 season.
15Malcolm JenkinsFS26PHI3-421111616.03 INTs in his first 3 weeks padded his stats and have masked some very low floor weeks.
16TJ WardSS27DEN4-316171917.3Playing FS, decreased tackle opportunities will make a repeat top 10 finish difficult. He's over valued in 2014.
17Deone BucannonSS22ARI3-414202319.0Assisting heavily in run defense, the upside is there on a per snap basis, but he needs a bigger role to be reliable.
18Bernard PollardSS29TEN3-423132921.7-8A ruptured Achille's ends his age 29 season. He's been as consistent as they come at DB.
19Kyle FullerCB22CHI4-320271821.7Fuller's come back to earth a bit, but remains one of the most consistent CB options.
20Hasean Clinton-DixFS21GB3-424251722.0His every down role in GB is garnering decent tackle #s for a FS.
21DJ SwearingerFS23HOU3-425232424.0While his tackle #s aren't overwhelming, they've been boosted by consistent pass rushing attempts and a rare INT.
22Calvin PryorSS22NYJ3-419312525.0He's not an every down player yet, but pass rushing opportunities will boost his value once he is.
23Antrel RolleFS31NYG4-317194326.3-5He's not been the consistent option we've seen in years past, despite a very shaky LB lineup.
24Reggie NelsonFS31CIN4-329293029.311Cincy likes to let their FS get at the QB, helping boost the 31-year-olds value.
25Robert BlantonSS25MIN4-337371529.7Trailing far behind Harrison Smith in name recognition, Blanton one of the league leaders in TKLs among DBs.
26Tyvon BranchSS27OAK4-326362830.04Another foot injury ended the 2014 season for one of the most consistent high end DBs. He'll be 28 next year.
27George IlokaSS24CIN4-327224230.3Iloka is playing good football at SS this year, but the tackle opportunities haven't been sufficient yet.
28James IhedigboSS30DET4-333243430.3After numerous lingering injuries, DET is giving him an every down role with plenty of tackle opportunities.
29Aaron WilliamsFS24BUF4-330214431.7Not an every down player, the weekly floor is very low for Williams in 2014.
30LaRon LandrySS30IND3-436342732.33Perhaps better for fantasy option than real life, DB2 tackle opportunities are there.
31Ryan MundySS29CHI4-331353333.0He's the highest scoring S in CHI, but only because Conte can't stay healthy. Both may not be starters there in 2015.
32Dashon GoldsonFS30TBTampa 232462133.011The Tampa-2 DEF isn't always safety friendly, but Goldson's looking like a reliable DB3, which shouldn't change now that Barron's gone.
33Michael GriffinFS29TEN3-428512033.0Three sacks and above average tackle volumes make Michael Griffin the most attractive TEN S after the Pollard injury.
34Brock VereenFS22CHI4-339323134.0Pick #131 in the draft, his value will be limited by Conte's health for now.
35Tony JeffersonSS22ARI3-4183034.3He made a strong run, but with Mathieu healthy and Bucannon developing, the Jefferson IDP era will be ending shortly.
36Jairus ByrdFS28NO3-4341534.7-15A torn lateral meniscus ended Byrd's season early. He was an every down player, averaging 5 TKLs/game in his first year with NO.
37TJ McDonaldFS23STL4-3222835.0-14Mark Barron's arrival makes McDonald's job security highly questionable going forward.
38Matt ElamSS23BAL3-445264137.3-1023 combined TKLS in 8 weeks is disappointing. His IDP and NFL value are plummeting.
39Dawan LandrySS31NYJ3-447482239.024The arrival of Pryor has not diminished the role or production of Landry in the least. He's having a great IDP year.
40Mike MitchellFS27PIT3-4383342.0-11Ryan Clark's old FS spot has been consistent, but provided very little upside for Mitchell.
41Terrence BrooksFS23BAL3-435395442.7Great pts per snap, but only plays 50%. It's at least promising for a rookie behind some struggling starters.
42Alterraun VernerCB25TBTampa 253443243.0Lovie's Tampa-2 defense has made Verner one of the more consistent CB options.
43William MooreSS29ATL3-462422643.3He's averaged >6 fantasy pts/game each of past 4 years, he'll be a safe and startable DB after he returns from IR in week 11.
44Mike AdamsFS33IND3-443405144.7Despite some big weeks, the 33-year-old has had 2 or fewer TKLS in 4 of his first 8 weeks.
45Glover QuinFS28DET4-351453844.75He's been a safe option at DB, although one with very little upside.
46Da'Norris SearcySS25BUF4-341435245.3-4Coverage deficiencies have Searcy off the field for significant snaps, but his use in run defense makes him almost IDP relevant.
47Stevie BrownSS27NYG4-3463846.3-6He's lost his job in NY, but he's a talented player behind some aging starters.
48Dez SouthwardFS24ATL3-4404546.7Southward's a smart, big, fast safety who has some depth chart climbing to do before he's IDP-relevant.
49Jonathan JosephCB30HOU3-460463647.3Thhrough 8 weeks, Joseph's stats aren't flukey. He's become a rare consistent option at CB.
50Prince AmukamaraCB25NYG4-348474747.3Increased his production in his first three years, though likely hit his ceiling last year as the 24th overall DB in fantasy.
51Roman HarperSS31CAR4-3424948.7-33 INTs have saved an otherwise disappointing 2014 stat line.
52Rahim MooreFS24DEN4-3504349.3-13The DEN secondary just hasn't proven useful for IDPers in recent years. 2 TKLs/week won't cut it.
53Eric ReidFS22SF3-4524249.7-6It's been rough in 2014 with only 2 weeks over 2 combined tackles.
54Shamarko ThomasSS23PIT3-4445250.3Negative PFF grades and the arrival of Mitchell forecast at least 1 more year as the #3 option in PIT
55Charles WoodsonSS38OAK4-357554050.79The 37-year-old has been as consistent as ever in his 16th year in the league.
56DeAngelo HallCB30WAS3-4584151.3Hall's done for 2014, but has been arguably the most consistent CB in fantasy. He'll be in WAS for 3 more years.
57Nate AllenFS26PHI3-43552.0He's fended off Wolff and is fairly consistent tackler.
58Lemarcus JoynerFS23STL4-3495352.3The arrival of Barron certainly doesn't bode well for STL's plans to unleash their rookie.
59Kendrick LewisFS26HOU3-461475052.7He still leads the HOU safeties in tackles, but DJ Swearinger will surpass him soon.
60Troy PolamaluSS33PIT3-455574652.71-3 years left in the tank, he was remarkably durable last year and you know what you're getting with Troy.
61Patrick ChungFS27NE3-43752.7Patrick Chung is probably the NE DB to own for 2014 production. Still, he's in the large DB3 tier.
62Major WrightSS26TBTampa 23953.312He's the surest bet to fill in to Lovie's system after the departure of Barron, giving him some 2014 value.
63Chris ConteFS25CHI4-3564954.39Conte is marginally ahead of rookie Brock Vereen, but has struggled with numerous injuries through 8 weeks.
64Shawn WilliamsSS23CIN4-3545655.0-4Williams would need an injury to Nelson or Iloka for 2014 relevence, and even then it's not a slam dunk.
65Kemal IshmaelSS23ATL3-44555.3The 2013 7th round pick was producing even before the Moore injury.
66Devin McCourtyFS27NE3-45056.0He's a great safety, but it just hasn't translated to great IDP production.
67Louis DelmasFS27MIA4-3595456.0An every down player, but not an appealing one, he's paled next to Reshad Jones post-suspension.
68Jason VerrettCB23SD3-44856.3He's been an impressively consistent option, but will struggle with injuries for the remainder of 2014.
69J.J. WilcoxSS23DALTampa 25358.0Decent tackle opportunities are present, but he needs to improve his play to keep taking advantage of them.
