Falcons' Damontae Kazee: Yet another interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kazee collected four combined tackles and an interception during Thursday's 31-17 loss to the Saints.

The second-year man continues his Pro Bowl bid, with an NFL-best six interceptions (all coming over the past eight games), eight pass deflections and a forced fumble on the season. Kazee has been an undeniable difference maker for a Falcons defense that has otherwise struggled mightily to generate turnovers (10 all year, seventh-fewest in the league). There is, however, one glaring deficiency in Kazee's game -- inconsistency as a tackler in the open field. Most notably, he whiffed on a tackle that could have prevented Nick Chubb's 92-yard touchdown scamper in Week 10, and in Week 11 he allowed Cowboys back Ezekiel Elliot to slither past him for a game sealing 23-yard touchdown run. Sound tackling will be paramount in slowing down the Falcons' upcoming opponent, an unpredictable Baltimore backfield that features two powerful running backs in Alex Collins and Gus Edwards.

Falcons' Damontae Kazee: Ready to go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kazee (shoulder) has no injury designation for Thursday's game against the Saints, Will McFaden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Kazee was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. The second-year safety appears to have fully recovered from his shoulder injury sustained during a Week 11 loss to the Cowboys, and is on track to suit up against the Saints on Thanksgiving Day.

Falcons' Damontae Kazee: Plays through injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kazee sustained shoulder and elbow injuries during Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Cowboys, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Kazee exited Sunday's loss to the Cowboys during the first half, and was later able to return to the game. The severity of the Kazee's shoulder and elbow injuries remain undisclosed, but it's encouraging that he was able to play through them. The second-year pro will face a short week of recovery as Thursday's divisional tilt against the Saints approaches.

Falcons' Damontae Kazee: NFL interception leader thus far in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kazee collected three tackles and one interception during Sunday's 28-16 loss to Cleveland.

Kazee's magical 2018 continued in Week 10, as he intercepted running back Dontrell Hilliard on a trick play and streaked down the sideline 33 yards to set up Atlanta with a short-lived three point lead in the second quarter. The Falcons secondary had been getting its act together somewhat in holding opposing quarterbacks to a 9:4 touchdown:interception ratio over the four outings prior to Week 10, but Baker Mayfield carved up the Atlanta defense with three touchdowns, zero interceptions and an 85 percent completion rate. Next for Kazee and the defensive backfield comes a matchup with Dak Prescott, who's been less than stellar overall this season, failing to exceed 275 passing yards in any of his nine starts and throwing just 1.2 touchdowns per game.

Falcons' Damontae Kazee: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kazee (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Kazee was limited for two consecutive practices to begin the week, so his full participation bodes well. The second-year pro appears on track to start against the Browns in Week 10, and will look to build upon what has been a breakout season.
