RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
While Joyner started just eight of the 14 games he appeared in last season, he still totaled 66 tackles (50 solo) and five passes defended. The former second-round pick was undersized (5-8) as a cornerback and is expected to start at free safety in 2017. The move should be a nice fit for Joyner to take advantage of his opportunistic instincts. The promotion puts him in line to post a career-best fantasy season, making Joyner an intriguing late-round flier.
Once a second-round pick, Joyner finally began to live up to his pedigree having racked up 72 tackles, six passes defensed and two sacks in 2015. At press time, he appears to have secured the Rams' No. 2 cornerback job and could be a sneaky IDP pick opposite the likes of Trumaine Johnson.
Joyner was originally projected at safety heading into 2014, but due to an injury bug ended up playing more at cornerback. A groin injury cut his season short, as he had amassed 22 tackles in the three games before being injured. He should see a lot of time as the nickel back this season, especially because E.J. Gaines is out for the year.
The Rams are high on Joyner after selecting him in the second round out of Florida State. He is a quick, albeit undersized, defensive back and could compete for playing time at corner and/or safety.
