2019 Fantasy Outlook
A 2017 fourth-round pick, 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 avoided a suspension once chargers were dropped. While strong safety Landon Collins is a far better bet for IDP production, Nicholson at least seems to have the inside track for the starting job at free safety. Read Past Outlooks

Picks off Brady
SWashington Redskins
October 9, 2019
Nicholson made seven tackles (five solo), a pass breakup and an interception in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Patriots.
This was Nicholson's second pick of the year, and it was also Tom Brady's second interception as well. That's already a career best for Nicholson, as he only registered one interception over his first two years in the league. That doesn't spell IDP relevance by itself, although an average of 6.2 tackles per game is a decent floor.

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.
