Who is your top defensive back on a different team in 2020? Are you targeting this player in a normal redraft league? Do you think they might be underrated by most of the fantasy community?
There are three choices, as I see it -- Malcolm Jenkins' return to the Saints after years in Philadelphia, Vonn Bell joining the Bengals, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix signing with Dallas. I wouldn't be surprised to see any of them finish as top-10 fantasy defensive backs this year. Jenkins is the safest choice and will be the consensus pick with the highest ADP. But I'll throw my lot in with Clinton-Dix. The Cowboys need an enforcer in the backfield to take advantage of a punishing pass rush, and Clinton-Dix should be able to rack up the tackles and garner his share of big, tempo-changing turnovers.
Looking deeper at just the cornerbacks who changed teams, I like James Bradberry in New York (Giants). He isn't a big ball-hawking corner, so his interception count won't be too high, but he'll be on the field all the time and he should rack up the tackle totals. In IDP leagues that require a cornerback starter, Bradberry will be one of the better, more consistent options in 2020. He also is capable of competing with safeties for point production in leagues that offer any defensive back starter.
