Poe produced 39 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two pass breakups over 16 games in 2017
After making a name as a premier defensive tackle during his five years with the Chiefs, Poe bolted for Atlanta on a one-year deal this past offseason and fared well with his new team, finishing with positive marks as both a pass rusher and run defender per Pro Football Focus. However, his statistical production expectedly remained modest while playing along within the interior of the defensive line. His fantasy value in 2018 will certainly depend on what team he signs with, but it's unlikely Poe becomes much of an IDP factor given the nature of his position.
Poe had five tackles (two solo) and a sack in Thursday's win over the Saints.
The five tackles tie Poe's season high, and the sack brings his season total to 2.5. The 27-year-old continues to be a reliable anchor in the middle of the Falcons defense, but has limited IDP-value as he is consistently tasked with eating up double teams.
Poe recorded four tackles (two solo) and one sack in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.
Poe now has reached the quarterback in two of the past three games. The defensive tackle is up to 20 tackles (12 solo), two pass defensed and 1.5 sacks on the year. He'll now be tasked with stuffing the Seahawks' run game Monday night.
Poe posted a career-low 27 tackles and 1.5 sacks while earning $6.1 million under his fifth-year option last season. With both he and safety Eric Berry thus far unsuccessful in negotiations for long-term extensions, the Chiefs may have to prioritize a player with their franchise tag ahead of Wednesday's deadline. Despite his reluctance, Berry is expected to receive that designation, which would result in Poe becoming an unrestricted free agent. Should that occur, the 26-year-old Poe would figure to garner significant interest from teams in need of a disruptive 3-4 nose tackle, likely spelling the end of his time in Kansas City.
