Germaine Pratt made a strong impression after breaking into the starting lineup halfway through his rookie season in 2019. He continued as the Bengals weak-side starter in 2020 but was, surprisingly, not able to secure an every-down role. Pratt has ideal size, good speed, and is far from a liability in coverage. In fact, he was a free safety at the beginning of his college career and was seen by some scouts as the best coverage linebacker in the 2019 draft. He is an aggressive, physical run defender as well, and was a playmaker at North Carolina State. Yet for some reason, the Bengals coaching staff pulled him off the field on most passing downs last season. Instead of breaking out in 2020 as some expected, Pratt's production as a two-down starter was only slightly better over a full season than it had been in eight games as a starter in 2019. He has the potential to be an impact player both on the field and in the box scores, but trusting the Cincinnati coaching staff to make good decisions has been the downfall of fantasy football managers for what seems like decades.
