  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Career-high 122 tackles

    Elliss (knee) finished 2023 with 122 tackles (82 solo), 4.0 sacks and three pass defenses in 17 appearances.

    Elliss parlayed a breakout campaign in 2022 with New Orleans into a three-year deal with Atlanta last offseason, and he built off that success in 2023, recording a career-high 122 tackles. The 2019 seventh-round pick is not only a tackle machine (seven games with at least nine stops), but he's grown as a pass rusher, totaling 11.0 sacks over the last two seasons after just one over his first three NFL seasons. After missing just a handful of snaps through the first 16 games, Elliss suffered a knee injury in the season finale and didn't return. The extent of the issue remains unclear, but as long as he's healthy next season, Elliss should be a key piece of Atlanta's defense regardless of who's the next head coach.

  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Departs with knee injury Week 18

    Elliss hurt his knee in Sunday's game against New Orleans and is questionable to return, Michael Rothstein of reports.

    Elliss was injured in the first half of the must-win game for Atlanta. If the linebacker is unable to return, it would be a big blow to the Falcons, as Elliss ranks second on the team with 119 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, on the campaign. For at least the time being, Andre Smith has entered the game in Elliss' stead.

  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Logs double-digit tackles

    Ellis recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) in Atlanta's 29-25 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.

  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Season-high 11 tackles

    Elliss recorded a season-high 11 stops, marking his second double-digit tackle performance of the season. He also notched his second sack of the campaign.

  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Continues solid play

    Elliss notched eight tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 28-23 loss to the Titans.

    Elliss recorded at least eight tackles for the third time this season. Across eight appearances, he's totaled 53 tackles and one sack. He's well on his way to surpassing his career high in tackles (78) during his first season with Atlanta, but he hasn't been as impactful as a pass rusher as he was with New Orleans last year, when he posted seven sacks.

  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Season-high 10 tackles in loss

    Elliss registered 10 tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Lions.

    Elliss recorded his first double-digit tally of the season and finished second on the team behind Jessie Bates (11). Elliss has 25 stops and a sack through his first three games in Atlanta, and he's emerging as a strong IDP candidate. Last year, he finished with 78 tackles, including seven sacks, across 17 games with New Orleans, but he's on pace to surpass those numbers in 2023.

    Elliss led Atlanta in tackles and recorded his first sack of 2023, taking down Jordan Love on a third-and-11 play in the first quarter. The newcomer has made his presence felt during his first two games with the Falcons, recording 15 tackles overall, and he appears to be a strong IDP option moving forward.

  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Nine stops in Week 1

    Elliss recorded nine tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Panthers.

    Elliss' Falcons debut wasn't quite as prolific as Jessie Bates', but the two newcomers definitely both played a huge part in Atlanta's season-opening win. Elliss recorded 78 tackles, seven sacks and two forced fumbles across 17 games with the Saints last year, so while the early tackle numbers are nice, fantasy managers can expect him to eventually make an impact as a pass rusher as well.
