Baker is safety number one in most IDP formats and with good reason. He is one of the most multiple players in terms of defensive responsibilities and plays every snap. He signed a massive contract extension last fall to become the NFL's highest paid safety, so there are no concerns about a holdout going forward. While the team has improved its pass rush, linebacker, and corner positions this offseason, it is unlikely to be enough improvement to negatively impact Baker's tackle opportunity. If you have Baker on your defensive squad, you should start him no matter what.
