Darnell Savage hasn't quite hit the marks many had hoped for when Green Bay moved up to get him in the 2019 draft. He's been a fine player NFL wise, but hasn't been a big impact player for IDP purposes. Savage did have a pretty solid 2020 season where he produced career-highs in tackles (75) and interceptions (4). However, those outputs dropped a bit in 2021 as Savage compiled 63 tackles and only two interceptions. We think a big part of the decrease in his production was Savage seeing the highest usage of his career at free safety with 725 snaps, per PFF. If you've been playing IDP for any time, I'm sure you've heard about the sweet spot for DB production being in the box and slot areas. Savage spending so much time deep at free safety unfortunately lowers his weekly tackle floor. In IDP drafts, Savage is more of a deeper league late round flier. With his snap volume, Savage is also a potential in-season waiver wire pickup if you end up in need.
