RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Berry's 2012 season was a disappointment, even after accounting for his return from a 2011 ACL tear. Although his 86 tackles (73 solo) were a solid figure, he intercepted just one pass and failed to post a sack or forced fumble. It would be wise to bet on Berry making a strong comeback in 2013, however. The vast majority of Berry's track record is highly impressive. The 2012 season aside, everything about 6-0, 211-pound Berry is blue chip, as he dominated in college at Tennessee (245 tackles and 14 interceptions in 39 games) and lit up the Combine with a 4.40-second 40-yard dash and 43-inch vertical. With a tune-up season from his ACL tear out of the way, Berry should re-establish himself as one of the league's best safeties – as a rookie in 2010, he posted 92 tackles, two sacks and four interceptions.

2012

An ACL tear is always a serious matter, but don’t assume Berry won’t be back in a big way in 2012. As a 23-year-old with extremely rare athletic gifts, Berry is expected to be near full strength for the start of training camp. Berry is an elite talent, and he’s poised to push for triple-digit tackles after finishing his 2010 rookie season with 92 stops (77 solo) and four interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. Although he has the tackling ability of a strong safety, Berry possesses excellent athleticism and center-field skills, so he’ll contribute in virtually every way possible for a defensive back IDP.

2011

The former Tennessee star didn’t quite set the league on fire after being selected fifth overall in last year’s draft, but he was still plenty impressive. With the athleticism of a cornerback and the run-stopping instincts of a strong safety, there simply isn’t much Berry can’t offer a defense. He finished the year with 92 tackles (77 solo), two sacks, nine passes defended, four interceptions, one touchdown and a forced fumble. Those sacks, passes defended, interceptions and the forced fumble came in the last 11 games, so Berry clearly picked up steam as his rookie season progressed. Berry’s value is even higher in keeper league formats than in redraft leagues, but he’s near the top of the IDP food chain in either setting.

2010

Based on his play with the Tennessee Volunteers, Berry drew comparisons to Baltimore’s Ed Reed — high praise indeed. The fifth overall selection in the 2010 draft, Berry will be expected to step in and contribute from day one, both as a playmaker in the defensive backfield and in run support.
