CB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
The Oakland Raiders and CB David Amerson agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension worth up to $38 million with $18 million in guaranteed money.
David Amerson is entering his fourth season in the NFL and his second with the Raiders. Amerson had a remarkable season in Oakland in 2015. In 16 games, the corner tallied 60 tackles, four interceptions, a forced fumble and a whopping 26 pass deflections, which led the NFL (tied with Marcus Peters). Oakland's defense is an up and coming force that should be viewed as a sleeper in the upcoming fantasy football campaign.
The Redskins thought that David Amerson had regressed last season due to inconsistent play.
He has the skills to start in the NFL, but it's looking like he won't get that chance this season with DeAngelo Hall healthy and the emergence of Chris Culliver. Bashaud Breeland's leadership and drive would likely compel the team to make him their nickel in 2015. The team has acknowledged that Amerson became more knowledgeable about the game and his position, while being more dedicated to learning his craft. However, his play did not reflect that. He still gambled too often and relied solely on his instincts regularly. He is only 23 and is entering his third season, but his development hasn't gone the way the team expected after his promising rookie year. He surrendered too many big plays and his meager two interceptions mean that he failed to make many big plays of his own.
Redskins CB David Amerson (concussion) returned to practice on Friday. Though he is listed on the injury report as questionable, the team expects Amerson to play Sunday barring a setback.
With DeAngelo Hall out for the season, Amerson is the Redskins top corner. There are likely better IDP options at DB. Amerson is not a recommended starter.
Redskins CB David Amerson suffered a concussion in the team's Week 6 loss to Arizona and did not return to the game. Amerson will have to be cleared for Week 7 through the league's concussion protocol and may not be available when the Redskins host Tennessee.
Monitor Amerson's health throughout the week and be prepared to substitute for him in IDP play.
Redskins second-year CB David Amerson was targeted frequently by Eli Manning in the team's 45-14 loss to the Giants in Week 4. Despite the action, Amerson did not record a pass deflection. He did manage to notch eight tackles (six solo) on the night.
With DeAngelo Hall out for the year with an Achilles tear, Amerson will serve as the Redskins top CB. Despite his potential, he is still inexperienced and will be matched up against the opposition's top WRs every week. Amerson has little value in redraft leagues, but is worth a look in deeper IDP leagues.
