Deone Bucannon found his way back onto the field in Week 8 and he survived the trade deadline without being moved. While all that can be seen as a positive for his fantasy stock, there is still nothing to be excited about yet. Bucannon served as a two-down weakside linebacker while Haason Reddick continued to play every snap as a three-down strongside backer. In all Bucannon saw action on 59% of the defensive snaps. While this may be a sign he is working back into the good grace of the coaching staff, it probably has more to do with Tre Boston missing the game due to his shoulder and rib injuries. Instead of running three safeties as they usually do, the Cardinals had three linebackers on early downs and used Jamar Taylor as a nickel corner. Boston should be back when the team returns from the bye in Week 10.
Markus Golden had a breakout game with seven solo stops and a sack against San Francisco. Get him on your roster for the stretch run if you have a need at the position.
Limit your expectations for Atlanta’s pass rushers this week against a Washington offense that has allowed one sack in the last two games.
