2020 Fantasy Outlook
Signed to a three-year, $45 million deal this offseason, Bradberry will be the Giants' top cornerback, often assigned to the opposing team's best receiver. He's probably not an elite "shut-down" corner, but he was solid in Carolina since being taken in the second round of the 2016 draft. Don't expect a ton of IDP stats, however, as teams are likely to target the Giants' weaker opposing corners. Read Past Outlooks

$Signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Giants in March of 2020.
Outstanding inaugural season
CBNew York Giants
January 15, 2021
Bradberry notched 54 tackles (44 solo), 18 defended passes, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery across 15 games in 2020.
ANALYSIS
Bradberry's presence as one of the league's few true shutdown cornerbacks played an enormous role in the rise of New York's secondary down the stretch in 2020, though his style of play doesn't lend itself to massive fantasy numbers. He played 100 percent of defensive snaps during 12 of 15 contests in his first season with the Giants, and he remains under contract with the team through 2023. He earned Second-Team All-Pro honors in 2020 for his quality of play.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
2016
A second-round pick in 2016, Bradberry has started all 45 of his appearances for the Panthers. Last year, he recorded a career-high 15 passes defended, but nabbed only one interception. Despite just five picks overall, Bradberry remains a solid starter and a decent source of tackles, posting 70 last term. Now entering his contract season, Bradberry will hope to maintain his level of play while ideally capitalizing on more balls thrown his direction. Even if he doesn't, his consistent role lends itself to steady value.
A starter ever since being drafted in the second round two years ago, Bradberry finished with 85 tackles, 10 passes defended, two interceptions and a sack last season. That improvement on his rookie year means Bradberry should remain a key piece in Carolina's defense despite some fellow cornerbacks joining the fold this time around.
The Panthers' second-round pick last year, Bradberry is already the team's best cornerback. The Samford product finished his rookie campaign with 59 tackles, 10 pass deflections and two interceptions in 13 games. The physically imposing Bradberry only figures to get better this year with more experience under his belt, and hopefully a full season's worth of production.
After the Panthers allowed Josh Norman to leave this offseason, they spent a trio of draft picks on cornerbacks, with Bradberry being the highest investment of them all. A second round selection, Bradberry has excellent size and long arms, making him a good fit in the Panthers' coverage scheme. In fact, Bradberry has worked with Carolina's starting defense to begin his rookie campaign, which could give him the opportunity to contribute in IDP formats right away.
