I took Vonn Bell four years to earn the full-time strong safety job in New Orleans. For much of his first three seasons there, he served as the third safety seeing action in the Saints big-nickel base scheme but leaving the field on roughly 20% of the snaps. While he had a good share of productive games, those missing snaps held his fantasy value in check, making Bell an inconsistent third starter for IDP managers. He was on the field virtually every before being injured in week 13 of the 2019 season and was far more than a third starter. Bell set career marks in tackles and big plays while averaging better than 13 fantasy points per game which were the second-most in the league by a defensive back. When Bell signed with the Bengals ahead of last season, there was some initial uncertainty about his role. Instead of working in a three safety base defense like the one he left in New Orleans, Bell replaced Shawn Williams at strong safety, rarely leaving the field. Bell went on to be the Bengals second-leading tackler, forcing three fumbles, recovering two, and breaking up five passes on the year. That was enough to make Bell a top-tier safety for fantasy managers in 2020. The Bengals' defense should be improved this year, particularly in the front seven. That could have some impact on Bell's production but he remains a safe target as a second defensive back with top-12 potential.
