Summary

Harrison Smith was the top defensive back in the fantasy game last season and has become arguably the best safety in the game. He is a physical and consistent tackler who rarely misses, but it is his big play spark that sets Harrison apart from the pack. Improvements in the front seven over the past two seasons mean there is no reason to expect much growth from the 71 solo tackles he posted a year ago. In 41 career games Harrison has totaled 14 turnovers, 4 sacks, 23 passes defended and 3 scores. Those improvements up front could allow for an even more aggressive approach in the secondary. Harrison is unlikely to be in the mix for the tackle lead among defensive backs but he should be right there with the elite group when it comes to fantasy points. (May 26)
