Elliss recorded six solo tackles and one sack during Sunday's 25-24 win over the Packers.

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 and a sack, and he appears to be a strong IDP option moving forward.

Nine stops in Week 1

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

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 make an impact as a pass rusher eventually, as well.

Joining Falcons on three-year deal

Elliss agreed to a three-year contract with the Falcons on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Elliss is scheduled to make $21.5 million over the next three years, though the deal can't be finalized until Wednesday. The 27-year-old linebacker enjoyed a breakout season with the NFC South rival Saints in 2022, racking up 78 tackles and seven sacks. Elliss had just 23 tackles and one sack over three previous seasons.

Key defensive contributor in 2022

Elliss tallied 78 tackles (43 solo), seven sacks, two passes defended and two forced fumbles over 17 games during the 2022 season.

Elliss notched career highs across the board during his fourth season with New Orleans. The 2019 seventh-round pick was a core special-teamer over his first three years with the Saints, and he continued to primarily play in this phase until linebacker Pete Werner went down with an ankle injury Week 9. Eliss then recorded 58 tackles (33 solo) and five sacks while taking on a starting role over the final eight games of the season. He also maintained a significant role even when Werner returned for three of the final four regular-season games. As a result, the 27-year-old Elliss finished fourth on the team in tackles and second in sacks, and he will likely draw interest when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
