Darnell Savage
22-Year-Old SafetyS
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Packers traded up to select Savage in the first round last season, and he stepped right into the starting safety spot alongside Adrian Amos. Savage didn't do a lot in the tackle department, but he did pick off two passes and force two fumbles despite missing a couple games. Amos' steady presence allows defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to use Savage freely, and Savage has the speed and playmaking skills to, in Amos' words, "make a big jump" in Year 2.

Productive rookie season

Savage appeared in 14 regular-season games in his rookie season and piled up 55 tackles (42 solo), two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and five pass deflections.
Savage stepped right into the starting lineup after being selected in the first round of the 2019 draft, and he occupied that spot all season except for the two games he missed in October with an ankle injury. Savage showed some of the playmaking abilities that that led to his early selection, and with a full season of professional football under his belt, the Packers will be counting on him to make even more plays in his second campaign.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Savage steadily rose up mocks leading up to the NFL draft, and the Packers proved the prognosticators correct, trading up to snag the safety with the 21st overall pick. Savage possesses a nice mix of talents, primarily his exceptional speed at the safety position, and should pair nicely with the assignment-oriented Adrian Amos, who will also be playing his first season in Green Bay. So long as Savage secures the starting spot during training camp, he has a chance to make a fantasy impact in his rookie season.
