RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

McCourty, who recorded 68 tackles and two picks in 16 starts last season, is set to reprise his role as the team's starting free safety this season. While there is plenty of moving parts in the Patriots' re-tooled secondary this season, one constant is that McCourty -- who signed a five-year, $47.5 million contract this offseason -- will rarely leave the field. It's an arrangement that gives him some utility in IDP formats, assuming a slight uptick in his counting stats, which is a plausible outcome.

2014

McCourty is coming off of the least productive season of his career, failing to record at least 80 tackles for the first time and regisering just one interception after averaging more than four per season over the previous three years. He'll have an excellent chance to rebound this season, though, as he stands to benefit from quarterbacks avoiding new teammtes Brandon Browner and Darrelle Revis.

2013

The Patriots plan to keep McCourty at safety this coming campaign, which will help him maintain IDP relevance after racking up 82 tackles, two forced fumbles and five picks in 2012.

2012

McCourty has not been particularly good in coverage lately, and he plays for a defense that is a great bet to see among the most snaps in the league because Tom Brady's offense scores so often and so quickly. The result is a huge target volume, and one in which McCourty figures to give up a big chunk of catches, which then turns into easy tackle opportunities. He finished last year with 87 tackles (65 solo) in 14 games, which project to 99 tackles over 16 games. That's about in line with his per-game stats through his first 30 games, which project to 90 tackles (72 solo) and five interceptions over a full season.

2011

After intercepting just six passes in his four years at Rutgers, McCourty had a smash hit of a rookie season in 2010, collecting seven interceptions and 82 tackles (69 solo) while starting 16 games for New England. Itís doubtful quarterbacks will test McCourty in 2011 as much as they did a year ago, so itís reasonable to expect his numbers to regress a bit. Still, he had the clear look of a playmaker last year and could just as easily cement himself as a one of the top corners in the league with another big season.

2010

The Patriots passed up a chance to grab Dez Bryant, but after trading out of the No. 22 slot, then the No. 24 spot, they land McCourty, a player who will boost the team's cornerback depth and can be a terror on special teams.
