2019 Fantasy Outlook
Simmons could emerge as one of the league's best safeties, now playing on a defense that figures to improve with the arrival of coach Vic Fangio. Simmons was already good on a Vance Joseph defense, but heading into his third year as starter he could leap to the next level. Simmons produced around 95 tackles per 1,000 snaps the last two years, and there's untapped interception potential, especially if Fangio brings out more from the Denver pass rush. Simmons is a tall safety with great quickness and leaping ability, so jumping routes should suit his nature. Read Past Outlooks

March 13, 2020
The Broncos have placed their franchise tag on Simmons, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The move was expected, with the report noting that the one-year tag for safeties is expected to be worth about $11.5 million. Additionally, look for Simmons and the Broncos to continue to work toward agreeing on a long-term deal in advance of the July 15 deadline to do so. The 26-year-old logged 93 total tackles and four picks in 16 contests last season.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Simmons is quietly on the verge of establishing himself as one of the league's standout safeties, and his injury-shortened season last year could make him overlooked as an IDP. There's not much exciting about 69 tackles in 13 games at a glance, but Simmons could approach 1,000 snaps this year, and if you prorate last year's per-snap production over that many plays you get a projection above 90 tackles. Heading into his third season and presumably with fewer special teams responsibilities than in the past, Simmons is a prime candidate to reach the next level.
