RISING

Khari Willis, S, IND

Injuries and modest pedigree might have prevented the realization from becoming widespread, but Willis is a DB1 in IDP leagues by now, and for the foreseeable future as well. Through 803 snaps this year Willis has produced 79 tackles (63 solo), one sack and two interceptions, making him a fine candidate for triple-digit tackles if he logs 1,000 snaps. He won't be able to get there in 2020 due to missing one game, but Willis looks like a breakout safety in 2021.


 

Brandon Jones, S, MIA

Few current backups offer as much obvious 2021 IDP upside as Jones, Miami's third-round pick out of Texas this year. According to Pro Football Focus, Jones produced 54 tackles on just 356 defensive snaps to this point – a borderline outrageous pace for a safety. None of this makes Jones a guarantee to play a three-down role in 2021, but if he does his upside should prove compelling in IDP leagues. As much as the floor is not assured in the meantime, Jordan Chinn's move to linebacker makes Jones the only realistic candidate to compete with Budda Baker for the DB1 title anytime soon.

 
Terez Hall, LB, NE
