Summary

Justin Durant's 2014 season was cut short after a bicep tear forced him to the training room in Week 8. Like new teammate Brooks Reed, Durant projects as a versatile chess piece for Dan Quinn to deploy. His best fit is as a weakside linebacker, which he played to good effect in Dallas, Jacksonville and Detroit. Durant could be the most valuable fantasy asset in the Falcons revamped defense. Reaching LB3 territory with LB2 upside is not out of his range. (April 27)
