2019 Fantasy Outlook
Adams followed a mediocre, 83-tackle rookie season with big numbers in 2018, easily surpassing triple-digit tackles while posting encouraging coverage metrics. His snap count in both seasons seem unsustainable - 2,203 snaps between them - but last year's production rates would still put him on track for roughly 100 tackles even if the snap count drops to 1,000. Adams eases the concern of tackle regression with blitzing and fumble production, totaling five sacks, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in his first two seasons. Read Past Outlooks

Racks up 115 tackles as sophomore
SNew York Jets
December 30, 2018
Adams racked up 11 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Patriots, finishing his season with 115 tackles (86 solo), 3.5 sacks and an interception.
ANALYSIS
Adams has already evolved into one of the league's surest tacklers at the safety position in just his second season, making him an absolute stud in dynasty formats. Now, if the Jets could just add some more talent around him, the team could actually start making some noise instead of toiling away near the bottom of the league standings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
The sixth overall pick in last year's draft, Adams is an IDP whose price tag is based almost entirely on pedigree after a rookie season with puzzlingly low production. It's not necessarily reflective of anything that Adams finished last year with just 83 tackles on 1,103 snaps – it's mostly a positive that he was trusted with such a huge play count, and the low tackle rate otherwise might pick up with experience. Adams doesn't turn 23 until October, and it'd be reasonable to expect a 2018 where he doesn't play quite so much but does more with his snaps.
It's understandable to be skeptical of a rookie, be it due to effectiveness concerns or fears about limited playing time, but Adams is a low risk in both regards. A safety doesn't have to actually be good to post useful IDP production, and a safety drafted sixth overall is not going to spend much time on the bench, even as a rookie. Not just that, but the Jets' offense will likely be atrocious this year, ensuring plenty of snaps for Adams in a defense that should spend a great deal of time on the field. After posting 76 tackles (7.5 for a loss) in 12 games last year, Adams has major upside as a rookie.
