I took Vonn Bell four years to earn the full-time strong safety job in New Orleans. For much of his first three seasons there, he served as the third safety seeing action in the Saints big-nickel base scheme but leaving the field on roughly 20% of the snaps. While he had a good share of productive games, those missing snaps held his fantasy value in check, making Bell an inconsistent third starter for IDP managers. He was on the field virtually every snap through the first 13 games of 2019 and was far more than a third starter. Bell set career marks in tackles and big-plays while averaging better than 13 fantasy points per game which were the second-most in the league. What remains to be confirmed is Bell's role with his new team. It is widely speculated that he will replace Shawn Williams as the starting strong safety but that is not written in stone. It is possible Bell will once again be one of the three starting safeties in a big nickel base scheme. This situation leaves us guessing as to Bell's IDP value in 2020. Chances are high that he will be a considerable IDP contributor but that could mean anything from a third starter to top-10. (May 9)
