Despite missing three games -- and reportedly playing the majority of the 2012 season with six cracked ribs -- Pollard racked up 98 tackles and two sacks with the Ravens. With the Titans, the hard-hitting Pollard could start at strong safety opposite free safety Michael Griffin and if he does, he'll retain IDP relevance.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Pollard is moving to the Titans in 2013 and will be the starting strong safety.

2012

Pollard briefly left the IDP scene, but prior to last year he was consistently a top-five defensive back option. His numbers haven't been quite as good since he emerged as a starter for the Ravens, but his highly productive past seasons and his new job stability nonetheless make him one of the more appealing IDP targets once you get beyond the top tiers. That he’s in his second year in the Baltimore defense should allow him to acclimate, and give him a better chance to reprise his prior form.

2011

Although he’s a liability in coverage to the point that both the Chiefs and Texans found him intolerable, Pollard has clearly demonstrated the ability to be an elite IDP option as long as he’s starting somewhere. As bad as he is in coverage, he’s equally active as a run stopper. His 213 tackles in 28 games as a Texan are gigantic for a safety. Unfortunately for Pollard, the NFL is a passing league, so there’s no guarantee he’ll strike up enough interest as a free agent to get a starting spot in 2011.

2010

Once known only as the man who wrecked Tom Brady’s knee, Pollard has emerged as a legit IDP option and a key to Houston’s improving defense. He racked up more than 100 tackles, four interceptions and two touchdowns last season in just 13 games — and got a great deal of credit for helping to turn around the Houston defense after being elevated to the first team. With a full season as the unquestioned starter, Pollard projects as an elite fantasy defensive back.

2009

Pollard is best-known as the man who ended Tom Brady’s 2008 season – but the shot to Brady’s knee was just one of many hits Pollard made last season. He finished the season with 98 tackles and an interception, looking like a player on the rise. He has the potential to improve this season as the Chiefs transition away from the “Tampa 2” scheme favored by ex-coach Herman Edwards to a more aggressive one under new coach Todd Haley and defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast.

2008

Pollard recorded an impressive 90 tackles last season and was really churning them out during the second half of the season, leading to high expectations entering 2008. He’s physical against the run, allowing him to post top-shelf tackle stats and potentially become an elite IDP option. His downside comes in the form of athletic rookie DaJuan Morgan, who could steal playing time away from Pollard. If Pollard can fend him off, he’s certainly worth drafting in most IDP leagues.

2007

Pollard embodies coach Herm Edwards’ idea of a strong safety with his size, toughness and aggressive style of play. Kansas City expects Pollard to be a fixture at strong safety for the next several years, although he might start off the year as a reserve with Jarrad Page and Greg Wesley claiming the starting safety roles. If he’s named a starter from the get-go, he’s worth investigating as an IDP. Expect solid tackle numbers as a result of his effectiveness in stopping the run to go along with the occasional big play.

2006

Pollard has done nothing but impress the coaching staff. He could emerge as the starting strong safety over incumbent Sammy Knight at some point.
