Strong 2023 campaign

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-17

Grant (neck) finished 2023 with 103 tackles (37 solo), six pass defenses, three sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception in 17 appearances.

Grant, a 2021 second-round pick, was a regular starter for a second straight season and has recorded back-to-back 100-tackle campaigns. In 2023, Grant notched his first three sacks of his career and recorded his third interception over the last two seasons. He lost some snaps over the final couple of weeks to DeMarcco Hellams but appeared in all 17 games and finished strong with a 10-tackle performance, including a sack, in Week 18. The addition of Jessie Bates didn't negatively impact Grant's production, and the duo figures to be back in 2024, though Grant is entering the final year of his rookie deal and may have to fend off Hellams for playing time.

Nursing neck injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-08

Grant (neck) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Amna Subhan of the Falcons' official site reports.

Grant tied for the team lead in defensive snaps at safety in Week 9, so it's not immediately obvious when he picked up the neck issue. Either way, he'll probably need to practice in full Thursday or Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

Another solid game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-30

Grant recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one pass defense during Sunday's 28-23 loss to the Titans.

Grant has recorded at least eight tackles and one pass defense in back-to-back games. He has 52 total stops through eight appearances, putting him on pace for a second consecutive 100-tackle season.

Gets first pick of season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-24

Grant recorded eight tackles (five solo) and an interception in Sunday's 16-13 win at the Buccaneers.

Grant put himself back on pace for 100-plus tackles on the season in Week 7, and to highlight his day, he made a good read to log a crucial interception with less than four minutes to play. Atlanta will go on the road to face a struggling Titans offense in Week 8.

Season-high 11 stops

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-02

Grant recorded 11 tackles (nine solo) during Sunday's 23-7 loss to Jacksonville.

Grant posted a team- and season-high 11 tackles during the loss. The second-year starter has been overshadowed by newcomer Jessie Bates to start 2023, but Grant is coming off a 123-tackle season and already has 28 stops through four games this year. Grant's tackle numbers offer mangers with a solid fantasy floor, but he's yet to record a turnover this season. Last season, he had two picks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery across 17 games.

Modest production in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Grant recorded four tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 25-24 win over the Packers.

It wasn't a prolific day for Atlanta's defense, as the offense was on the field for most of the game (82 offensive snaps to just 50 defensive). However, Grant still made some nice open-field tackles in his finite role and is off to a strong start in 2023, totaling 11 tackles (six solo) and one pass defense while playing 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps.

Productive season as starter

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-13

Grant posted 123 tackles (70 solo), seven pass defenses, two interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 17 appearances during the 2022 campaign.

After a modest rookie season, Grant, a 2021 second-round pick, won the starting free-safety job during training camp and went on to submit his first 100-tackle campaign in 2022. He posted at least five stops in all but one game (Week 7 against Cincinnati) and notched the first two interceptions of his career. Grant has two years remaining on his rookie deal and figures to be a core piece of Atlanta's secondary in 2023.

Ties team high with nine tackles

Grant posted nine tackles (four solo) and blocked a punt during Sunday's 20-19 win over Arizona.

Grant tied Isaiah Oliver with a team-high nine tackles and blocked a punt in the second quarter, which preluded a five-yard touchdown run from Cordarrelle Patterson. Across 16 games, Grant has accumulated 116 tackles, seven pass defenses and two interceptions while playing nearly every single defensive snap.
