Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
2015
There was a slight decline statistically for Nelson in his first season with the Steelers, but he still managed to make 61 tackles and have two takeaways. He will again take up residency as the starting right cornerback on a stud-filled defensive unit, but typically does not generate the kind of numbers to be a significant contributor in IDP fantasy formats.
The newest addition to the Pittsburgh secondary, Nelson finished tied for 7th in the league with four interceptions in 2018. This is a welcome addition to a team that ranked 28th in the league with just eight interceptions and makes him an attractive IDP option.
Nelson started seven of the nine games he appeared in last season, racking up 41 tackles (33 solo) and a forced fumble for the Chiefs. With Marcus Peters gone to Los Angeles, Nelson is slated to start opposite Kendall Fuller in 2018.
Nelson was selected by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft, and will likely battle for snaps as the nickelback in 2015.
