First round rookie DE Takkarist McKinley should see an uptick in his snap count in Week 2 against Green Bay. Game flow determined his time on the field this past contest against Chicago. Atlanta wants to ease him in via the nickel package defense. (espn.com)

Fantasy Impact:

Fantasy owners should stay the course with McKinley if at all possible. He missed most of the off season due to the shoulder surgery and Atlanta wants him to be 100% up to speed with that defensive unit. The nickel package can be deployed a lot in a game like they have with Green Bay this weekend. The Nickle is used mainly with pass-happy offenses. McKinley has too much upside to not let his production for fantasy have time to develop.
