RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2013

Nelson, who recorded 83 tackles (54 solo) and three interceptions last season, is expected to start at free safety for the Bengals in 2013.

2012

He was a huge bust in Jacksonville as a former first-round pick, but Nelson finally came to life for Cincinnati in 2011. He still isn't much of a tackler, but he posted just enough (85 tackles, 59 solo) to be a non-liability in that department and added four interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and 12 passes defended. He also threw in two sacks and two forced fumbles. With a deep and effective front seven ahead of him, Nelson should continue to see a fair number of rushed, off-target passes as he reprises his role as Cincinnati's center-field safety.

2010

Nelson has a starting safety spot...for now. He struggled as much as any defensive back in the league last year, and we wouldn't be surprised to see him benched or even cut. His days as a productive IDP are over.

2009

Nelson possesses the ability to be a ballhawking safety with high tackle numbers, but has yet to put that talent together in his first two years in the NFL. The jettisoning of Gerald Sensabaugh and the move of Brian Williams back to the cornerback position means that Nelson will have plenty of opportunities to rack up numbers in the revamped Jags defense, but fantasy owners may have to take a slight leap of faith in believing whether he'll do so or not.

2008

Nelson had a great rookie season with five picks, one sack and 57 tackles. Expect those numbers to grow as Nelson continues to mature as a professional.

2007

Nelson, the Jaguars' first-round pick has already been handed the starting free safety spot, and should make an immediate impact for the Jags' defense. His ballhawking and tackling skills could make him one of the top rookie IDP's.
