Damontae Kazee (Achilles) will miss the remainder of the season

Atlanta Falcons S Damontae Kazee will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn Achilles Monday night vs. the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Kazee was drafted by the Falcons in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft and has 10 interceptions over his last two seasons. This is a big loss for a Falcons defense that has looked mediocre at best so far this season. The Falcons D/ST is among the worst in the league and should not be on any fantasy rosters at this time.

Damontae Kazee leads disappointing Atlanta secondary in Week 12 loss

Atlanta safety Damontae Kazee did manage an interception as well as four combined tackles. but overall was subject to missed tackles and being caught out of position as New Orleans Saints quarterback carved up all of the secondary players like a roasted turkey in the Atlanta loss. They allowed Brees to complete passes and touchdown to players of unknown origins such as tight end Dan Arnold, wide receivers Tommylee Lewis, Austin Carr, and Keith Kirkwood. While it was the entire defensive secondary running around like turkeys with their wings clipped, Kazee stood out with his struggles.

Fantasy Impact

In a situation that clearly looked like a production by default scenario, Kazee still holds IDP value heading into the fantasy playoffs as a bounce-back candidate to have better games in terms of play as well as IDP production. He has had a solid year after being forced into a starting role over injuries, but in this last contest, he did show he isn't perfect.

Damontae Kazee picks off Drew Brees on Thanksgiving

Falcons safety Damontae Kazee recorded four tackles (three solo), one interception, and one pass defensed in Thursday night’s 31-17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Kazee is just the second player to record an interception against Saints quarterback Drew Brees this season. He initially returned it for a touchdown but it was ruled he was down by contact. Kazee leads the NFL with six interceptions in 11 games (10 starts) this season. The Ravens are up next in Week 13.

Damontae Kazee the only playmaker on the filed in Sunday loss

In the loss Sunday versus Cleveland the entire defense struggled. The only outstanding play made was by safety Damontae Kazee who recorded an interception with a 33-yard return to go along with his one pass defended and three combined tackles.

Fantasy Impact

The interception was the highlight of the day for Kazee and the entire defense with everyone struggling this contest. And for Kazee personally, he only had one solo tackle out of the combined three, a season low. His IDP owners will hope that this isn't the case for the rest of the season. Kazee has been a very serviceable IDP play, for the most part, this season and is likely to rebound as soon as next weekend when they take on Dallas.

Damontae Kazee records five total tackles

Damontae Kazee collected three solo tackles, two assisted tackles, and one tackle for loss in the Atlanta Falcons' Week 7 victory over the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Kazee has played well filling in after Keanu Neal was lost for the season, and is currently the 14th-ranked DB on the season. He will continue to have plenty of opportunities to make plays in the pass game as the Falcons score points.
