Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Appears in all 16 games for Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman, who registered four tackles during Atlanta's 44-27 Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers, wrapped up the 2020 campaign with 27 tackles and one sack over 16 games.

Neasman took on an enhanced defensive role as the year wore on, twice collecting 97-plus percent of the Falcons' defensive snaps over the final quarter of the regular season. Weeks 1 through 13, he only once garnered more than 40 percent of the workload, but injuries to Damontae Kazee (Achilles) and Darqueze Dennard (quadriceps) opened up secondary snaps down the stretch. Having played all 57 of his career NFL games as a member of the Falcons, Neasman will now prepare to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Collects Week 15 sack of Brady
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman collected eight tackles and a sack during Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Buccaneers.

Starting at free safety for a second consecutive game in place of the injured Ricardo Allen (concussion), Neasman finished behind only Deion Jones (10) in tackles among Falcons defenders. The 29-year-old's second-quarter sack of Tom Brady, meanwhile, forced a Tampa Bay punt. Despite Weeks 14 and 15 marking the first starts of Neasman's five-year career with Atlanta, he's held up reasonably well in coverage by containing opponents to a 89.6 passer rating over a limited sample of six targets.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Returns to Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman signed a one-year contract with the Falcons on Friday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

The 28-year-old became an unrestricted free agent earlier this week after totaling four tackles in 2019 while working primarily on special teams. Neasman figures to work in a similar role during the upcoming season, assuming he makes the 53-man roster.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Plays integral special teams role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman appeared in 15 games this season and recorded four tackles and one fumble recovery.

After obliterating career highs by collecting 44 tackles and four pass deflections during 2018, the fourth-year pro out of Florida Atlantic logged just 12 defensive snaps during all of 2019, though he did garner at least two-thirds of the special-teams snaps in 14 of his 15 outings. Neasman will become an unrestricted free agent upon the expiration of his two-year, $1.35 million contract in March.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Puts in full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Barring a setback, Neasman will suit up Sunday. He has mostly been a special-teams player this year, seeing just eight defensive snaps all season.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: No-go for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Neasman played in last week's game against the Saints with the same injury, but suited up in just six total snaps. With the Florida Atlantic product officially sidelined for Week 14, it will be his first game missed, and Kemal Ishmael will likely be in line to see an uptick in snaps.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (shoulder) has been listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday's upcoming game against Carolina.

The 28-year-old Neasman played after carrying a questionable designation going into the Thanksgiving night tilt against New Orleans on Nov. 28, but he garnered just seven combined defensive and special-teams snaps after getting on the field for 18 or more plays in every game Weeks 1 through 12. Neasman is still in search of his first tackle but does have one fumble recovery thus far in 2019, as Atlanta gets set to take on a Panthers team Sunday that has lost five of its past six games.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Suits up Thursday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (shoulder) is active for Thursday's contest against the Saints, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Neasman has yet to miss a game this year. He will serve mainly on special teams.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Questionable to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday's game against New Orleans, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

Playing primarily on special teams, the 28-year-old safety has done a nice job covering kicks and punts this season, but Neasman's limited role makes him largely irrelevant in fantasy. Since he was limited in practice all week, it's entirely possible that he sits out Week 13. Neasman has yet to miss a game in 2019.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Limited for second straight session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (shoulder) was a limited participant for Tuesday's practice session, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

While Neasman has only been on the field for eight defensive plays all season, he's served as an integral piece on special teams by logging over 65 percent of the snaps in every game thus far this year. He carries a questionable designation as the Falcons prepare to take on a Saints team that ranks 21st in the NFL with 21.4 yards per kickoff return on Thanksgiving.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Steps up in secondary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman collected 44 combined tackles, two tackles for loss and four pass deflections in 12 appearances for the Falcons in 2018.

Injuries to starting safeties Keanu Neal (knee) and Ricardo Allen (Achilles) opened up extra opportunities for Neasman, who played 39.8 percent of Atlanta's defensive snaps this season after garnering less than two percent of the snaps in his first two professional seasons. The 27-year-old has a good shot at maintaining a roster spot in 2019, though he's set to see a drastic reduction in playing time with Neal and Allen both slated to return.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Ties career high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman registered six combined tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss, during Sunday's 40-14 win against Arizona.

The third-year safety forced some crucial stops in Sunday's thumping of Arizona, twice bringing down ball carriers short of the sticks on third down. Neasman has yet to notch a start in 2018, but last week he fielded 63.3 percent of the defensive snaps (his most since Nov. 4), while finishing tied for second on the team in total tackles. Facing a banged-up Cam Newton (shoulder) who's coming off a Monday night outing in which he refused to attempt a single pass over 20 yards downfield, Neasman is more likely to come up and defend the run than be forced to account for the deep ball when the Falcons travel to Carolina on Sunday. This is assuming Newton plays at all.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (neck) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Neasman exited Sunday's loss to the Ravens due to neck and shoulder injuries, but Wednesday's injury report indicates that he's managed a full recovery. Expect Neasman to play his usual rotational role in Atlanta's secondary against the Packers in Week 14.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Questionable to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens due to neck and shoulder injuries, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

With Neasman injured, the Falcons do not have a single healthy depth option behind starting safeties Jordan Richards and Damontae Kazee. Brian Poole and Isaiah Oliver could both see limited snaps at safety as long as Neasman remains sidelined.

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman was signed to Atlanta's active roster Tuesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Neasman's promotion to the 53-man roster coincides with the placement of Ricardo Allen (Achilles) on injured reserve. An undrafted rookie, Neasman will serve as a depth safety and special-teams asset for the Falcons.

Sharrod Neasman: Released with injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (undisclosed) was waived with an injury settlement Monday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.

Neasman landed on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury but was released the next day. Once healthy, the undrafted rookie could potentially find a spot on a practice squad.

Saints' Sharrod Neasman: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neasman (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

The nature of Neasman's injury isn't clear, but the defensive back is nonetheless stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he reaches an injury settlement.
