Carolina inks former Atlanta's Dontari Poe

Former Falcons and Chiefs defensive tackle Dontari Poe signed a three-year deal with the Panthers, reported to be worth about $27 million total. The move leaves Atlanta with a hole on their defensive line.

Fantasy Impact

Exactly what this does for IDP owners with Poe and Vernon Butler in Carolina, who is rumored to have a larger role in 2018, is unclear at this time. The extent of the contract does indicate that Poe will be counted on.

Dontari Poe to the Panthers

Washington Post's Kimberley Martin is reporting that the Panthers are signing free agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe.

Fantasy Impact

He's one of the better free agents on the market, especially on the defensive line. After leaving the Chiefs for the Falcons last offseason, Poe played extremely well, particularly against the run. He will replace Star Lotulelei on the defensive line and should be considered a solid upgrade. The Panthers signed Julius Peppers the other day, trying to shore up their defensive line.

Dontari Poe a Swiss Army Knife in Week 14 win for Atlanta

Dontari Poe recorded his best game of the season in the win over New Orleans with a stat line of five combined tackles and a sack. Poe also saw time with the offense as a blocking fullback and even was seen running a passing route in an end zone play. The Matt Ryan pass didn't go Poe's direction, but it did manage to pull coverage from a defensive player in the attempt.

Fantasy Impact

Take this as you will, but it should be a situation to monitor. It's hard to suggest Poe as every week IDP play with his fluctuation in producing in the stat box, but being used in goal line plays on offense does warrant some attention. This would be a high risk versus reward situation of course.

Dontari Poe rewarded weigh-in bonus

DT Dontari Poe collects a $125,000 bonus after weighing in at/below 330 pounds for camp. This the second of four weigh-in bonuses worth $125,000 each in the language of his contract.

Fantasy Impact

Newly signed DT Poe was a former NT in Kansas City's 3-4 defensive scheme. He will no longer need to line up over the center and only clog the middle to stop the run. Head coach Dan Quinn will want Poe to be lighter and faster off the ball in his 4-3 defensive scheme. Poe should see more production as a DT for fantasy purposes.

Dontari Poe signs with Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons and defensive tackle Dontari Poe agreed to terms on a one-year, $8 million deal that could be worth up to $10 million with incentives Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Poe, who was arguably the top interior defensive lineman available in free agency, signed with Atlanta Thursday after visiting with the Dolphins, Colts and Jaguars. The former Chiefs standout will bolster a Falcons defense that struggled to contain the run at times last season.
