2020 Fantasy Outlook
The two-time Pro Bowl corner and 2017 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year is back for his fourth season after an impressive 2019 campaign. Last year, Lattimore allowed just a 50.0 percent completion percentage, a 79.4 passer rating and only three touchdowns on 88 targets thrown his way. The 23-year-old has established himself as one of the best cover corners in the NFL and should be poised to take on a larger role in 2020 thanks to the loss of Eli Apple in the offseason. Despite his elite real-world play, Lattimore is best suited for deeper IDP formats in fantasy due to the lack of opportunities his shadow coverage provides. Read Past Outlooks

Lattimore had his fifth-year option exercised Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
This was a mere formality, as Lattimore has developed into one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. The fifth-year option guarantees the 2017 first-round pick close to $12 million as the team looks to eventually re-sign its star cornerback.

2017
Despite playing in three more games during his second NFL season, Lattimore noticed a marginal dropoff in his overall production from his standout rookie campaign. The Saints' passing defense as a whole took a step back accordingly, but there's little reason to question Lattimore's credentials as one of the league's top cover men. Even while seeing his pass breakup and interceptions totals fall from 18 to 12 and five to two, respectively, Lattimore still graded out as the Pro Football Focus' 16th-best cornerback. It was particularly encouraging to see his defensive stats trend back up when the Saints dropped the struggling Ken Crawley from the starting lineup in favor of trade-deadline pickup Eli Apple, whose arrival prevented opposing quarterbacks from avoiding Lattimore to the extent they had before. With Apple back in the fold for 2019, Lattimore should continue to get plenty of play-making chances and swing some games in the process.
The 11th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, Lattimore was a rookie sensation. The former Ohio State Buckeye's 52 total tackles, 18 passes defended and five interceptions helped the Saints turn around a doormat defense that ranked dead last in yards allowed in 2016. In fact, Lattimore was named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and his five picks were tied for fifth-most in the league. Unfortunately, Lattimore's incredible success as a rookie may be a Catch-22 for his fantasy value. Often the best NFL cornerbacks do not make significant fantasy contributors because opposing quarterbacks tend to avoid throwing to the side of the field that those cornerbacks defend. With Lattimore already earning a reputation as an elite cover corner, quarterbacks may choose to test the likes of Ken Crawley or P.J. Williams rather than throwing at Lattimore.
New Orleans nabbed Lattimore with the 11th overall selection in the draft and the talented cornerback will instantly slot into the starting lineup opposite Delvin Breaux while joining a secondary that also sports Kenny Vaccaro and Vonn Bell. Considering he likely won't be in a position to log high tackle counts this season, Lattimore will need to be more of a ballhawk in order to achieve IDP relevance.
