2019 Fantasy Outlook
Acquired in the Odell Beckham trade, Peppers should slot as the Giants' starting strong safety right away, though in defensive coordinator James Bettcher's scheme, there's not a major distinction between the free and strong safety spots. In any event, expect the athletic Peppers - 5-11, 213, 4.46 40, 128-inch broad jump - to log a heavy snap count and vie for the team lead in tackles. He'll also see time returning kicks and punts.

Defensive coordinator James Bettcher suggested Wednesday that Peppers could fill multiple roles this season, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. "Jabrill is a highly ascending player in this league. A guy that has flexibility to play strong safety, he can come down into the box and play some money [hybrid linebacker]."
Peppers was included in the blockbuster trade in March that sent Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns. Though his production lagged during his two seasons in Cleveland, the Giants believe that Peppers' versatility and athleticism should help him stick on the field regardless of the matchup. Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey envisions Peppers filling a similarly vital role in the third phase of the game, where the Michigan product will likely be a factor on both kickoff and punt returns.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Peppers, drafted 25th overall in the 2017 draft, had an up and down rookie campaign. The strong safety faced a lot of criticism for how deep he played, something he's aiming to improve on in 2018. In thirteen games, Peppers, who logged 57 tackles, broke up three passes and intercepted one in 13 games, while being used as the team's primary punt returner. With Derrick Kindred and Damarious Randall now in the fold, Peppers may not draw too many starts, but he should still play a substantial role in Cleveland's defense.
A standout at Michigan, Peppers was selected with the Browns 25th overall pick, giving Cleveland a player capable of wreaking havoc all over the field, from linebacker to safety. It's expected the rookie will line up at safety this season, but covering faster, stronger wideouts could leave Peppers with a steep learning curve to begin the year. To top it off, Peppers' draft stock suffered after he submitted an overly-diluted drug test sample at the combine, raising a red flag for many teams. However, there's no doubting Peppers is a freak athlete, one of the best in his class, but whether he makes an instant impact this season remains to be seen.
