2018 Fantasy Outlook
A starter ever since being drafted in the second round two years ago, Bradberry finished with 85 tackles, 10 passes defended, two interceptions and a sack last season. That improvement on his rookie year means Bradberry should remain a key piece in Carolina's defense despite some fellow cornerbacks joining the fold this time around. Read Past Outlooks

Leads team in breakups
CBCarolina Panthers
January 17, 2019
Bradberry finished the 2018 regular season with 70 tackles (58 solo), one interception on 15 passes defended, one sack and one forced fumble in 16 games played.
ANALYSIS
Bradberry started every game for Carolina for the second straight season. Although rookie cornerback Donte Jackson led the team with four interceptions, Bradberry's career-high 15 pass breakups not only paced the Panthers, but also ranked fifth league-wide. Through three seasons, the 2016 second-rounder has accumulated 214 tackles and five interceptions while being a mainstay in the secondary.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The Panthers' second-round pick last year, Bradberry is already the team's best cornerback. The Samford product finished his rookie campaign with 59 tackles, 10 pass deflections and two interceptions in 13 games. The physically imposing Bradberry only figures to get better this year with more experience under his belt, and hopefully a full season's worth of production.
After the Panthers allowed Josh Norman to leave this offseason, they spent a trio of draft picks on cornerbacks, with Bradberry being the highest investment of them all. A second round selection, Bradberry has excellent size and long arms, making him a good fit in the Panthers' coverage scheme. In fact, Bradberry has worked with Carolina's starting defense to begin his rookie campaign, which could give him the opportunity to contribute in IDP formats right away.
