Summary

Whitner is an excellent in the box strong safety who has often been miscast over the course of his career. As a result his true fantasy potential has rarely been brought to light. Other than a huge 2010 season that saw Whitner pile up 95 solo stops, he has never finished among the top twenty defensive backs. He was 68-37-0 with a couple of turnovers and 5 pass breakups in 2014. Those numbers we good enough to make Whitner a top thirty defensive back. He is a good fit for the scheme in Cleveland and is working at strong safety where he belongs, so a few more tackles are a good possibility. (May 23)
