Neal compiled nine tackles (five solo) against the Seahawks on Monday.
This is the fifth time in the last six matchups that Neal posted eight or more tackles, so it seems the second-year pro is comfortable in the big league. He did suffer a head injury during this game, but he was allowed to re-enter the game after a quick absence from the field.
Neal absorbed a hard hit from Seahawks running back Mike Davis and was subsequently escorted into the locker room. Damontae Kazee took his place on the field.
Neal racked up eight total tackles (six solo) and two forced fumbles, one of which he recovered, in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Panthers.
Neal has been a reliable tackle option of late, racking up at least seven total tackles in each of his last five games. He made it a point to go for the ball on two Jonathan Stewart carries, which only adds to his IDP value. He faces off against Dallas in Week 10.
Neal recorded nine total tackles (eight solo) in a 25-20 victory over the Jets in Week 8.
Neal has been putting up solid tackle numbers of late, racking up at least seven total tackles in each of his last four games. Six teams are on a bye this week, so if you need an IDP flyer, Neal is probably one of the safer options in terms of consistent production available on the waiver wire.
