Falcons' Nate Landman: Steps up in 2023
Landman finished 2023 with 110 tackles (66 solo), three pass defenses, three forced fumbles, 2.0 sacks and one interception in 16 appearances.
Landman filled in admirably for Troy Andersen, who suffered a season-ending pectoral injury in Week 3. Landman was an undrafted product out of Colorado in 2022 and made just seven appearances as a rookie, logging one assisted tackle while playing primarily on special teams. His ascension into a 100-plus tackler who flashed as a playmaker is remarkable, and he could parlay the strong campaign into competing for a starting spot in 2024, as the Falcons will almost certainly extend the ERFA a qualifying offer this offseason. However, Andersen was a second-round pick, so Atlanta will presumably allow him to retain his starting spot given the capital invested.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Nate Landman: Lackluster in Sunday's loss
Landman recorded six total tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Bears.
Landman finished tied for Atlanta's third-leading tackler in Week 17, bringing his season total up to 100 total tackles through 15 appearances. The second-year linebacker had a stretch of seven consecutive games with eight or more tackles earlier in the season, but he's only reached that mark once over the Falcons' last five contests. Expect Landman and Atlanta's defense to try and rebound against a Saints offense that's averaging almost 27 points per game over their last five outings in Week 18.... See More ... See Less

Falcons' Nate Landman: Returns to practice
Landman (knee) was a limited participant during practice Wednesday, Amna Subhan of the Falcons' official site reports.
Landman hasn't taken the field since suffering the injury in Week 13, so his return to practice Wednesday, even while limited, is a step in the right direction. The Colorado product will work to ramp up his activity level Thursday and Friday, but appears to be on the right track to play Sunday against the Panthers.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Nate Landman: Missing Week 14
Landman (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Landman exited the Falcons' Week 13 affair after suffering a knee injury, and he was unable to practice all week, so it's not surprising that he'll be inactive Sunday. With Landman missing Week 14, expect Andre Smith to start at inside linebacker alongside Kaden Elliss.... See More ... See Less

If Landman is unable to progress in his practice participation leading up to Week 14 against the Bucaneers, Andre Smith is the likely candidate to start at inside linebacker alongside Kaden Elliss....

Falcons' Nate Landman: Set to play at Jets
Landman (thigh) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at the Jets, Amna Subhan of the Falcons' official site reports.
Landman missed practice Wednesday and was limited during Atlanta's sessions Thursday and Friday, but he has the green light to suit up for Week 13 anyways. He'll be a viable IDP play Sunday, though the Jets' propensity to pass the ball could leave him with fewer chances than usual to make tackles.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Nate Landman: Back on practice field Thursday
Landman (thigh) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Amna Subhan of the Falcons' official site reports.
Landman alleviated some concerns about his availability for Week 13 by getting back to practice Thursday after he missed Wednesday's session. If he can manage to practice in full Friday, he'll probably avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Nate Landman: Not practicing Wednesday
Landman won't practice Wednesday due to a lower-body injury, but it's not considered serious, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Landman, who hasn't missed a game this season, has recorded 73 tackles, two sacks and one interception on the year. Fantasy managers need to monitor his status closely throughout the week, but the 25-year-old makes for an interesting IDP option against a run-heavy Jets offense in Week 13 if he's able to play....
