2019 Fantasy Outlook
Geathers is a tremendous injury risk - he's missed 23 games in his four-year career - and the Colts drafting two safeties indicates they're plenty concerned. When he's healthy, Geathers provides rare tackle production, producing 89 last year on just 714 snaps. If you're looking to play it cheap with your DB1, then Geathers should give you some weeks of top-12 production, though he could be taken away without warning at any point too. If he somehow plays 16 games, Geathers could post linebacker-like tackle totals. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
Geathers' 2016 campaign came to an abrupt halt when he was placed on IR following a concussion/neck injury suffered in Week 12. The 2015 fourth-rounder's nine-game sample size included 59 tackles, five passes defensed, and one forced fumble on just 561 defensive snaps. The Colts drafted Ohio State product Malik Hooker with the 15th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, so Geathers probably won't see a full workload at safety, but Indianapolis has plans to move him around and potentially give him snaps at linebacker as well.
Geathers, a fourth-round 2015 draft pick, will try to win a reserve role this summer. Geathers is a huge safety at 6-foot-2, 218 pounds and played a lead role in a solid UCF defense over the last four years. Geathers has a ton of experience and showed linear explosiveness at the least by posting a 4.55 40 and 37-inch vertical at the Combine.
