RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Conte was added this offseason in free agency as a veteran presence to help guide what is otherwise a complete youth movement. Conte started 52 games over his four years with the Bears and recorded 43 tackles and three picks in 12 games last season. The departure of Dashon Goldson should open the door for Conte to compete with Bradley McDougald, D.J. Swearinger and Major Wright for a starting safety spot.

2014

Conte provided decent IDP production as a 16-game starter at safety in 2013, netting 89 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. However, it was his lapses in coverage that made him more of a liability at the position from a real-life standpoint, with his blown assignment on the game-winning touchdown by the Packers' Randall Cobb in Week 17 ultimately costing the Bears a playoff berth. Offseason shoulder surgery kept Conte out of OTAs and minicamp, and with the team beefing up its safety corps through free agency and the draft, he may no longer have the inside track on a starting job heading into training camp.

2013

Conte made dramatic improvements during his sophomore campaign, nearly doubling his tackle total and chipping in with two interceptions and five pass breakups. He showed some vulnerability over the top but should continue to rank among the team's tackle leaders while causing the occasional turnover.

2012

After nine starts where he recorded an impressive 47 tackles, Conte figures to open the year as the starter despite missing the final few games with a foot injury. He'll have a great opportunity to put up fantasy number while playing centerfield in the Cover-2 defense.

2011

Conte is versatile enough to play both free or strong safety, but the third-round pick is going to struggle finding playing time behind starters Chris Harris and Major Wright.
