2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Montae Nicholson in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a four-year, $3.01 million contract with the Redskins in May of 2017.
Primed for starting spot
SWashington Redskins
July 11, 2019
Nicholson will get first crack at the starting free safety role, Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports Washington reports.
ANALYSIS
Nicholson lost his starting job midway through last season when Washington acquired HaHa Clinton-Dix in a trade with the Packers. Nicholson then struggled with injuries and an off-field incident during the second half of the season, but he isn't expected to face a suspension after charges stemming from his December arrest were dropped. A poor showing during training camp and the preseason could allow Troy Apke or Deshazor Everett to push for the starting job. For IDP purposes, strong safety Landon Collins is the far superior target.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
A 2017 fourth-round pick, Nicholson started six of the eight games he played as a rookie, missing time with a shoulder injury and a concussion. He's expected to start at strong safety in 2018, but free safety D.J. Swearinger is actually the sure bet for tackles. Nicholson does offer some IDP upside, especially if he gets to spend more time near the line of scrimmage.
