Falcons' Vic Beasley: Fifth-year option guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley's $12.8 million contract for 2019 became fully guaranteed Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Beasley, who paced the NFL with 15.5 sacks in 2016, hasn't even managed two-thirds of that total over his last two seasons combined (10). The Atlanta brass still believed in the 2015 first-round pick's talent enough to bring him back for another year, but his form the past two seasons makes it difficult to relying on him re-emerging as a top-flight IDP. Takk McKinley now ranks as the clear No. 1 pass rusher in Atlanta.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Likely to remain in Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn said that the Falcons plan to retain Beasley on the roster for 2019, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Quinn explained that keeping the 2016 NFL sack champion in Atlanta is "the plan right now," and that "it's going to take really good preparation and really consistent play" for Beasley to once again become a difference-maker on the defensive side.

There's been consideration that Atlanta is overpaying the slumping Beasley, who is in line to make $12.8 million in base salary this season despite only having compiled 10 sacks over his past 30 appearances. The Falcons addressed a number of other roster holes last offseason, overlooking pass rush as an area of need and finishing the year with only 37 sacks (eighth-worst) as a result. Quinn and the Falcons' brass appear to be standing by the 26-year-old defensive end for the time being, as the coach said Tuesday that he believes Atlanta will commit to retaining Beasley until March 13th, when the new league year begins and his salary becomes fully guaranteed.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Adds another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded three solo tackles, one sack and two passes defensed during Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Beasley has now accounted for at least one sack in consecutive games for the first time all season, having also gotten to the quarterback in Week 14 at Green Bay. Beasley's five sacks in 2018 match his 2017 total through 14 games played.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Posts sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded two tackles (one solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Beasley's sack Sunday pushes his season total to four. He's had another disappointing year after a 2016 campaign that saw him tally 15.5 sacks. Looking ahead, Beasley and the Falcons will play the Cardinals in Week 15.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Scoop and score in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley accounted for two tackles and a 74-yard fumble return touchdown during Sunday's 26-16 loss to Baltimore.

Beasley's zig-zagging scoop and score early in the second quarter provided him with his second career touchdown, as well as his first fumble recovery since 2016. Still, it's been a largely maladroit season for Beasley, who entered the year with aspirations to return to previous All-Pro form. Outside of a breakout two-sack performance against Dallas in Week 11, Beasley has accounted for only one sack and 10 tackles all season. Upcoming next is a matchup against a Green Bay offensive line that ranked bottom five in sacks allowed before holding Arizona to just one in a Week 13 loss.
