The Falcons didn't get a ton of production out of starting linebackers Akeem Dent, Stephen Nicholas and Sean Witherspoon last year, but the unit returns intact. Perhaps Umenyiora will have a trickle-down effect on everyone on this side of the ball, but this isn't a team you'll want to consider as a fantasy defense until and unless they show something during the season. If you prefer to play the defense carousel, they good be a nice matchup play.
