  • Simmons finished the 2021 season with 80 tackles (60 solo), five interceptions, 12 passes defended and 1.5 sacks. Simmons' five interceptions led all Denver defenders in 2021, and his 80 total tackles were good for second on the team behind fellow safety Kareem Jackson. The veteran safety played in all 17 games and proved to be worth the four-year, $61 million deal he inked in March of 2021. Simmons is under contract through the 2024 season, so the 28-year-old should continue to be a key player in Denver's defense for the next few seasons.

  • Simmons made eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Steelers. Both Simmons and linebacker Alexander Johnson paced the team in tackles Sunday. The veteran safety's eight tackles tied the season high set in Week 4 and brings his total to 25 tackles on the season thus far. If Simmons can continue to accumulate stops, fantasy managers should consider him a solid fantasy option going forward. In Week 6, the Broncos will play host to the Raiders.

  • Simmons recorded eight solo tackles and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 18-12 win over the Patriots. Simmons hasn't left the field on defense this season, and the fifth-year safety is averaging seven tackles per game while adding two pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery. His work in pass coverage is less appealing, as he's allowed a 121.5 passer rating and three touchdowns when targeted this season. That's irrelevant for fantasy purposes, however, and Simmons continues to be a consistent contributor in that realm.
