Summary

McCourty has clearly made a successful transition to safety as the Patriots signed him to a 5-year, $47 million contract this offseason. They lost Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, two key players who helped solidify their secondary on the way to a championship, so McCourty is even more critical. He is often the last line of defense for them, but his playmaking numbers have fallen with just 3 INTs over the past two seasons. Since he's unlikely to see much of a spike in tackle numbers given how strong the Patriots front seven is, he'll need to come up with a few more big plays to become a solid fantasy starter. Most likely a #3 safety at best since his value to the Patriots is greater than his value to fantasy owners. (May 21)
