Top 5 Fantasy Cornerbacks
The players who save touchdowns from being scored, can be a big help to your team. If you manage to land any of these guys on your team you will be rewarded with some huge points. Here are the Top 5 Fantasy Cornerbacks.
1. Nate Clements
Since sighing one of the biggest contracts in NFL history for a defensive player, Clements has delivered for the 49ers. Playing in San Francisco on a team with a sluggish offense means Clements should get ample opportunity to put up a lot of points this year. For a cornerback he gets a lot of tackles and throw in a handful of picks and forced fumbles and you have a great fantasy player.
2. Marcus Trufant
This former first rounder has hit his stride and is developing into one of the leagues best corners. Trufant plays on an underrated Seattle defense and should produce some big turnover numbers, which will make him a solid option to have on your team. Not to mention that the NFC West has some very weak QBs that he will be feasting on.
3. Leigh Bodden
Bodden finds himself in a new situation this year as he is now a member of the Detroit Lions in a trade that sent DT Shaun Rogers to the Browns. I believe that the Lions won this trade because Bodden has way more value than Rogers. Playing in the very weak NFC North means that Bodden will have another great fantasy season.
4. DeAngelo Hall
Much like Bodden, Hall also finds himself on a new team, the Oakland Raiders. Hall will look to bring some veteran leadership to what is a very young and talented defense in Oakland. This new situation, on a marginally better team will allow Hall to make the kind of plays that he has been known for, which will be very good for your Fantasy team.
5. Darrelle Revis
Revis broke out last season showing the rest of the league that he deserved to be one of the first corners selected in last years draft. Revis will also benefit from the improvements made on the defensive side of the ball. He should post another great season and easily be a Top 5 Fantasy Cornerback.
Honorable mention: Terrence McGee, Courtland Finnegan, Ike Taylor.
