Haason Reddick is completely healthy now and so are his numbers. Against the Panthers he played every snap for the first time this season, recording a team-high six tackles and six assists, adding a pair of pass breakups for good measure. He now has at least five solo stops in each game but we have not yet seen the big-play production he is capable of. That could come at any time. Reddick has become a safe every week start for IDP managers and has a particularly strong matchup this week against Seattle.
You could tell the injury to Keanu Neal was significant as soon as they put the camera on him after he went down. We now know he is lost for the rest of the season with a torn Achilles. With Damontae Kazee already having a significant role in the game plan, the Falcons put Kemal Ishmael at the strong safety position to finish the game. With time to prepare, it is hard to say how the Falcons will line up at safety in Week 4. What we do know is either Kazee or Ishmael will have a lot of fantasy value going forward. If I were to make an educated guess I would pick up Kazee this week.
All is well with Deion Jones who played every snap, finishing at 7-2-0 with a pass breakup. The ripple of Jones finally being 100% is that De’Vondre Campbell’s snap count continued to decline. Campbell was down to 77% of the playing time in Week 3.
Takkarist McKinley left the game with a knee injury. As of Wednesday afternoon, there had been no update on his condition.
Tony Jefferson had a big game against the Chiefs with seven tackles and an assist. He is good for a game like this about three or four times a season, so we should not get too excited.
