Summary

The Bears found a steal with Jackson in the fourth round of the 2017 draft as he has scored 5 touchdowns in his first two years as a pro. He was named All Pro in 2018 and graded out as the top safety by Pro Football Focus. While his tackle numbers were underwhelming, he more than made up for it with his knack for making huge game-changing plays. With one of the better pass-rushing front sevens in the league and a strong pair of starting cornerbacks, Jackson is able to play more aggressively than many free safeties and he has the ball skills and instincts to take advantage of any mistakes a quarterback makes. The low tackle numbers likely keep him outside the top fantasy safeties in the league in most balanced scoring systems, but he's an elite option in systems that weight big plays more heavily.
