2018 Fantasy Outlook
During his three years in the league, Amos has been a steady, but unspectacular, IDP at the safety position. He's posted consistent tackle totals of 67, 65 and 69. The last number, from 2017, is misleading because he was a backup who saw limited duty during the first three games of the campaign while also missing three other contests, but he nonetheless showed the ability to be a playmaker. Not only did he return an interception for a touchdown, but he also forced a pair of fumbles, one of which he recovered. Those looking simply at his output may fail to realize that he showed a clear jump in production last year and could be a steal this season should he pick up where he left off. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Green Bay has been unusually active at the top of the market, first signing OLB Za'Darius Smith away from Baltimore and luring Amos away from the division-rival Bears. The 2015 fifth-round pick started 56 of 60 games during his four years in Chicago, recording at least 62 tackles each season. Amos had career-high marks in a number of categories in 2018, including tackles (73), passes defensed (nine) and interceptions (two). His consistent work in coverage should be massively helpful to a Green Bay defense that's become accustomed to shaky play on the back end.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Entering his third campaign, Amos will remain the the Bears' starting free safety after compiling 67 and 65 tackles during the first two years of his career. However, his play-making ability leaves something to be desired, as he's mustered just one sack and one forced fumble in 31 games. He'll need to step up in that realm in order to be considered for IDP purposes.
One of the most pleasant surprises for the Bears in 2015 is when fifth-round draft choice, Amos, started all 16 games and led the team with 108 tackles while also playing more defensive snaps than any of his teammates. With the team adding talent to their front-seven, he may see a dip in his tackle numbers, but he should find himself in better position to help out in pass coverage and improve upon the four pass break-ups he had as a rookie. If he can improve upon his playmaking, he’ll earn a serious look as an IDP option.
Amos primarily played cornerback during his college career at Penn State, but the Bears are opting to develop him as a free safety after drafting him in the fifth round of the draft this past spring. Becoming a more adept tackler remains the top priority for Amos, but the coaching staff came away impressed with his natural instincts and ability in coverage, an area the team’s safeties have struggled mightily the past couple of seasons. There’s a chance Amos could become a long-term fixture in the Bears’ secondary, but as a rookie, he’ll likely serve as the team’s fourth safety behind Antrel Rolle, Ryan Mundy, and Brock Vereen.
