Week 1 Projections
According to the fine folks at Pro Football Focus, Devin McCourty was the NFL's best safety in 2013, receiving a league-high grade of 18.8. However, as Oliver Thomas of NEPD points out, McCourty's impact wasn't reflected in the box score. 'Within New England's multiple defense in 2013,' Thomas wrote, 'McCourty collected 69 tackles, one interception and nine pass deflections. On paper, it marked the lowest output of his career. Yet, on the field, it marked his emergence as one of the top center fielders in the league.' Unfortunately for IDP owners, 'center fielder' translates to 'big play-dependent fantasy defensive back best left on the waiver wire in most formats.'

I'm over it. It's time for him to go. Will be trying this week to trade him for a wr on a bye week. I realize that Hernandez might start opening him up after the good game, but I just don't think that it will be enough. No Moss, no deep ...
