William Moore: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Moore, who had 16 tackles (nine solo) and a forced fumble through three games, was replaced by Kemal Ishmael. The 29-year-old Moore produced across the board last year, piling up 86 tackles (67 solo), three interceptions, three forced fumbles, two forced fumbles, two sacks and seven pass defenses. He had a similarly excellent stat line in 2012, albeit over just 12 games.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Moore has consistently had injury issues throughout his career, but he's one of the NFL's best athletes at safety, and he hit his stride in 2012. Moore should be one of the top IDP targets in the secondary in 2013 after posting 75 tackles (59 solo), four interceptions, one sack and two forced fumbles in 12 games last year.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Moore will start at strong safety this for the Falcons, a team which lost many key pieces of their secondary.
Moore is pegged to start at strong safety for the Falcons this season, but they brought in Charles Mitchell in the draft to hopefully push Moore to the next level. Moore notched 54 total tackles in 12 games last season, and if he can stay healthy he could top 70 tackles in 2012.
During his sophomore season, Moore managed to displace Erik Coleman as the Falcons’ starting strong safety in 2010, and he did fairly well for himself from that position. He totaled 72 tackles (59 solo) and five interceptions and has plenty of upside to improve upon those figures. And unlike most players with strong safety builds, Moore has the athleticism to remain a playmaker in coverage.
Moore will backup Erik Coleman at strong safety.
The loss of Laywer Milloy opens the doors for a lot of Falcons players to get a shot at a starting role, and the rookie Moore is one of them. At worst, he'll back up Erik Coleman at free safety and be used on special teams, but his explosiveness and open-field tackling prowess makes him a good option for running plays.
