  • Falcons' Jessie Bates: Stars in first season with Atlanta

    Bates finished 2023 with 132 tackles (89 solo), 11 pass defenses, six interceptions, three forced fumbles and one defensive touchdown in 17 appearances.

    Bates joined the Falcons on a four-year deal last offseason after five campaigns in Cincinnati and immediately provided a spark to Atlanta's defense. He set career highs in tackles, interceptions and forced fumbles while notching his first defensive touchdown since his rookie campaign. Bates is a bonafide star in reality and fantasy, and should be utilized as a defensive playmaker again in 2024, regardless of who's hired as the new head coach.
