Over the past three seasons, Jessie Bates has quietly become one of the league's elites at free safety. The 2018 second-round pick became an immediate starter and wasted no time making an impact. He was the Bengals leading tackler in 2020, which is rare for any free safety, and has 220 solo tackles over three seasons. Bates is much more than a tackler though. He has three interceptions in each of his years as a pro and has averaged better than 10 passes defended per season. Bates averaged almost 11 fantasy points per game over his first two seasons and was the top producing free safety last season in fantasy terms, with an average near 15. He has been among the top-12 defensive backs in three consecutive seasons and there is no reason to think he will not make it four straight in 2021
