Week 15 Projections
The Patriots switched McCourty from cornerback to free safety last year, and McCourty took to the position well, Topping 80 tackles for the third straight year and intercepting five passes. That big-play production (he also forced two fumbles) got the 25-year-old back into the top 20 at his position for the second time in three years, and while McCourty's reliance on big plays for fantasy production can make him streaky, the Patriots' tendency to force opponents to the air adds to his IDP upside.
