Falcons' Vic Beasley: Moving back to defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Dan Quinn, Beasley will move back to defensive end full-time next season, Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "I have re-assessed it," Quinn said. "He played six games at linebacker and two injured. I'm going to put him full-time, all-the-time back at pass rusher. I thought it was best for the team even though some of his production would go down. His best role is doing what he does. He won't go back to linebacker."

Beasley saw a serious dip in production in 2017, following up his league-leading 15.5-sack performance in 2016 with a disappointing five sacks this past year. A return to the defensive line for Beasley could spell the end for Adrian Clayborn's run with the team, as the starting defensive end enters the free agent market this offseason.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Production tumbles in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded 29 tackles, five sacks, two pass breakups and one forced fumble over 14 games in 2017.

Beasley fell short of expectations in 2017 coming off a 15.5-sack performance in the season prior. Way short, in fact, as he graded out as Pro Football Focus' third-lowest-graded outside linebacker from a pass-rush standpoint. It's no coincidence that his production dipped simultaneously to that of the Falcons' offense -- which reached historic levels in 2016 -- as the Atlanta defense was much less frequently playing with a huge lead and Beasley consequently wasn't afforded as many pass-rush opportunities. In fact, the Falcons played the second-fewest third downs in 2017 (196) after having the 12th-most (213) the year before. If the Falcons offense, which averaged 33.8 points per game in 2016 compared to 22.2 this past season, can bounce back in even a modest way in 2018, Beasley's odds of doing so as well should be fairly high.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Finds quarterback in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley had five tackles and a sack in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Panthers.

Beasley hasn't been as effective as he was last season, but he's starting to find his stride. He now has a sack in four of seven games this year, and he's tallied 11 tackles through his last three games. He'll have a tougher task in Week 10 against a Cowboys offensive line that has only allowed 10 sacks this season.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Records sack in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded his third sack of the season in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Beasley had been quiet since logging sacks in consecutive weeks to kick off the season, but he was able to take down opposing quarterback Tom Brady late in the first quarter of Sunday's contest. The 25-year-old also had a season high five tackles (four solo). His usage was limited, as he only saw 35 defensive snaps (47.0 percent).

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Receives no injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Beasley was a limited participant all week but still avoided the questionable tag. It looks as the 25-year-old is on track to see his first game action since sustaining the injury against the Packers in Week 2.
