RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Josh Norman.
Norman projects as a true shutdown corner in defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s Cover-3 defense and joins a pass defense sporting the likes of Ryan Kerrigan, Junior Gallette and Preston Smith on the front end as well as Bashaud Breeland, DeAngelo Hall and David Bruton in the secondary. In 2015, Norman amassed 56 total tackles, 18 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and four interceptions, where two of which went for touchdowns. However, Norman may be hard-pressed to replicate those numbers he posted in Carolina that saw him finish as the 19th-ranked fantasy defensive back in standard IDP scoring, particularly in the touchdown and forced fumble categories, and his decision to take a side gig as a television analyst can only affect his focus and productivity in a negative way. Norman will need a lot of things to break right to once again post top-20 fantasy numbers at his position in 2016.
After an impressive rookie season and subsequent sophomore slump, Norman resurfaced as a more consistent figure last year. In totaling 48 tackles and two interceptions, Norman started 10 of his 14 games played and is expected to occupy a starting cornerback position once again this season.
Following a 12-start rookie year, Norman appeared in just seven games last season, making zero starts. He'll compete for playing time this season, likely serving as a reserve at cornerback while featuring on special teams.
Norman was really thrown into the action after Chris Gamble was placed on IR with a shoulder injury following Week 7. The rookie started 12 games for the Panthers and held up fairly well, likely solidifying him as at least the team's third cornerback next season.
Will provide depth in the defensive backfield.
