Campbell recorded 94 tackles (63 solo), including 1.5 sacks, while playing in all 16 games in 2018.
Campbell barely edged out his 2017 tackle total en route to setting a new career high in the category. He's shown to be a quality starting linebacker but didn't put up numbers that warrant top-flight IDP consideration. Campbell will figure to see a similar role for Atlanta in 2019.
Campbell amassed eight combined tackles during Sunday's 24-10 win against Carolina.
Campbell collected as many tackles in Week 16 as he had between Weeks 14 and 15 combined, but the Panthers held him out of the sack column after he was able to register 1.5 sacks against the Cardinals and Packers. He's been the anchor of this Falcons linebacking corps, playing 306 more defensive snaps than the second-leading man at the position group (Foyesade Oluokun). Unfortunately it's been a brutal season for the Falcons front seven, as the unit has allowed more running back receptions (118) and receiving yards (966) than any other team this season, while ranking bottom six with 127.1 rushing yards surrendered per game. In Week 17, Campbell and the Atlanta defense strive to close out the season on a strong note against Tampa Bay's 13th-ranked scoring offense.
Campbell recorded five tackles (four solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
Campbell's sack Sunday was his first of the season. He hasn't been used much as a pass rusher but has been a consistent tackler for Atlanta. His five tackles Sunday pushes his season total to 74 through 13 games. Looking ahead, Campbell and the Falcons will face off against the Cardinals in Week 15.
Campbell registered seven total tackles, including one for loss during Thursday's 31-17 loss to the Saints.
Campbell was able to bring down Mark Ingram for a two-yard loss early in the game, but otherwise the Falcons rush defense was putrid, surrendering four or more yards on 19 of a combined 25 carries between Ingram and Alvin Kamara. The third-year linebacker has been a staple in a struggling position group, starting all 11 games and recording five-plus tackles eight times for a Falcons defense that ranks bottom three in fantasy points allowed to running backs in both PPR and standard formats. Week 13 doesn't present the most daunting matchup, facing a Baltimore offense that's averaged 110.1 rushing yards per contest this season (16th in the league).
Campbell collected six combined tackles during Sunday's 22-19 loss to Dallas.
The Falcons front seven continues to get scorched by opposing running backs with Deion Jones (foot) out of the lineup, allowing Nick Chubb and Ezekiel Elliott to rack up a combined 298 rushing yards and 113 receiving yards over the past two weeks. Campbell has been a stalwart in the defensive rotation all year, averaging 22.5 more snaps per game than the next highest player at the position group (Duke Riley). With Jones's status remaining up in the air for Week 12, Campbell will continue to shoulder a heavy workload against the Saints lethal running back duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, who have combined for 1,024 offensive yards and 14 touchdowns in six games when both are active this season.
