RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Smith has been one of the league's top defensive back IDPs since the Vikings selected him 129th overall in the 2012 draft, carrying over the triple-digit tackle potential he showed at Notre Dame into the NFL by posting 156 tackles (117 solo) in 24 games, which projects to roughly 104 tackles (78 solo) per 16-game season. With good speed, excellent quickness and a big wingspan for a safety, Smith can cover ground better than most players at his position, and he should receive more playmaking opportunities now that Minnesota's defense will be run by coach Mike Zimmer, who generated a lot of pressure in Cincinnati. Considering Smith has five interceptions and two touchdowns in his first 24 games, any increase in turnover production would be icing on the cake. He has one of the highest ceilings among the top tier of IDP defensive backs. The only slight concern with Smith is his health, after he suffered a turf toe injury in 2013, but the fact that he returned from the injury in Week 15 would seem to imply that it's a thing of the past.

2013

The first-round pick out of Notre Dame had an enormous IDP season as a rookie last year, just missing the triple-digit tackle mark with 98 stops. Smith also made an impact as a playmaker, posting one sack and intercepting three passes, two of which he took back for touchdowns. There's little reason to think Smith won't keep making plays in 2013 because Minnesota figures to have a powerful pass rush with Jared Allen, Everson Griffen, Kevin Williams, Sharrif Floyd and Brian Robison chasing quarterbacks.

2012

Smith is a lock to start from Week 1 after the Vikings traded up to select him near the end of the first round of the 2012 draft, and his college production gives reason to expect good IDP numbers right away. He posted 181 tackles (109 solo) and seven interceptions in his final 26 college games, which projects to roughly 111 tackles (67 solo) and four interceptions in a 16-game season. Considering he'll be chasing a lot of bombs thrown by Aaron Rodgers and Matt Stafford – and a struggling Vikings offense should leave the Minnesota defense on the field for a high snap count – Smith should get more than his fair share of chances to make tackles in the secondary. Like Mark Barron in Tampa Bay, Smith is an elite target in dynasty leagues.
