RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After spending just one season with the Eagles, Chung returned to the Patriots in 2014, re-emerging as a starter at strong safety, while racking up 85 tackles.It's a role he'll reprise this season and one that carries with it fantasy utility in deeper formats.

2014

Returns to the Patriots after a season with the Eagles in which he recorded 59 tackles in 12 games. He'll boost the Patriots' depth at safety in the wake of Steve Gregory's departure this offseason.

2013

Chung begins a new era in Philadelphia coming over from New England in free agency. Chung will start at strong safety, part of a secondary of four new faces.

2012

Chung is a former Oregon safety and second-round pick who just can't seem to stay healthy, but posts big IDP numbers when he does manage to stay on the field. He has 158 tackles (109 solo) and four interceptions in his last 22 games, but those games are unfortunately spread over a two-year span, with two games missed in 2010 and eight missed last season. Those stats from the last two years would project to 115 tackles (79 solo) and three interceptions over 16 games. Since IDP production is so volatile and generally replaceable, gambling on Chung's upside is justifiable in an IDP league of any size, even if you only get about 10 games out of him.

2011

Chung enjoyed an impressive breakout season in 2010, one that should earn him a 16-game starting role and the distinction of being one of the league’s most productive safeties in 2011. The former Oregon star is a good all-around athlete, but his skill set clearly resembles that of the prototypical strong safety. Indeed, with 94 tackles (72 solo) in just 14 games last year, Chung more than lived up to that expectation, though it would be unfair to say he was one dimensional. His three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, were a nice supplement to his gaudy tackle numbers. He should rarely leave the field for New England in 2011.

2010

Chung, who had 37 tackles and a pick as a rookie, could find himself on the fantasy radar in 2010 provided he can lock down the team's starting gig at strong safety this season, which is a distinct possibility.

2009

The Pats have a way of unearthing players who may seem like reaches, but end up working out well, so we'll have to see if that knack continues now that Scott Pioli is no longer in the personal department. For now, Chung will follow James Sanders and Brandon Meriweather on the team's safety depth chart, but he has a chance to move up with his hard-hitting, fundamentally-sound ways.
