Summary

A great word to describe Darnell Savage is "multiple." He has application as a corner, a nickel linebacker, and a free safety in the Packers' defense. Green Bay has lacked that sort of player since Micah Hyde left to join the Buffalo Bills in 2017. If he's utilized the way most are projecting, he could log as many as 80 total tackles and 10 passes defended in his rookie year. While Savage may not be as valuable for fantasy purposes as teammate Adrian Amos, it's possible that both are viable options in leagues in which multiple safety starters are required. (August 11)
