RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
McLeod was snagged by the Eagles this offseason on a five-year deal and is slated to start at strong safety in the team's secondary. The 25-year-old had three impressive seasons in St. Louis, posting at least 70 tackles, five passes defensed, one interception, and two forced fumbles every year after his rookie season. With just five career picks, his fantasy value may be a bit behind what he brings to the table for the Eagles, but as far as safeties go he's a viable and consistent option.
McLeod has quietly put together a pair of solid seasons for St. Louis, with 70-plus tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in each of those campaigns. He may not be enough of a ball hawk to be a huge IDP contributor, but he rarely has awful games.
McLeod may have had the best season of any Rams defensive backs in 2013, with 79 tackles, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. His job should be the safest of any of the St. Louis defensive backs, and he has decent IDP value at the safety position.
McLeod will back up T.J. McDonald at strong safety to begin the season after tallying 12 tackles in 16 games in 2012.
McLeod is an undrafted rookie who has made a huge impression in the preseason and will likely end up as the club's No. 4 safety.
