Montae Nicholson
22-Year-Old SafetyS
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. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $3.01 million contract with the Redskins in May of 2017.
Busy against Denver
SWashington Redskins
August 25, 2018
Nicholson had four tackles on 21 snaps in Friday's preseason loss to the Broncos.
ANALYSIS
Nicholson also forced a fumble that went out of bounds, and he later missed a tackle on Royce Freeman's 24-yard touchdown run. Despite his mixed performance, the second-year pro is locked in as Washington's starter at strong safety, with potential to establish IDP value.
