Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Continues solid play in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant tallied 41 tackles, one sack, 12 pass breakups, two interceptions, one touchdown and two fumble recoveries across 15 games in 2017.

Trufant had another excellent season for the Falcons, ultimately finishing as Pro Football Focus' 16th-highest-graded cornerback. However, he again proved to be worth more as a real-life football player than as an IDP asset thanks to his low tackle totals. Considering he hasn't topped 42 tackles in each of the past three years, it's hard to place very much fantasy value on the Washington product in advance of the 2018 campaign, despite his reputation.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Out of concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn said Monday that Trufant is out of concussion protocol, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Trufant was held out of Sunday's game against the Vikings due to the concussion, leaving the Falcons light on cornerback depth in the loss. However, Trufant should be good to go for practice all week and be a big boost for the Falcons' defense in Thursday's game against the Saints.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Trufant (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Trufant has performed well as the Falcons' No. 1 cornerback this season, compiling 29 tackles, 10 pass breakups and two interceptions. With Trufant sidelined, the Falcons secondary could be in even more danger if Brian Poole (back) also can't play. That would leave just three healthy corners -- Robert Alford, C.J. Goodwin and Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Remains in protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday that Trufant remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Trufant isn't expected to practice Wednesday and appears in serious jeopardy of missing Sunday's game against the Vikings. With another key cornerback in Brian Poole (back) limited in the team's first practice of the week, the Falcons could be shorthanded in the secondary for the Week 13 matchup.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant left Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a concussion, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The injury occurred when Trufant collided with teammate Keanu Neal late in the second quarter. With Brian Poole also nursing a back injury, C.J. Goodwin and Blidi Wreh-Wilson could be called upon to play more snaps Sunday against the Vikings if Trufant and Poole are sidelined for that contest.
