Dwight Lowery: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)How long Lowery will be held out is uncertain, but coach Mike Smith said the concussion is not considered serious. The Falcons are without their top-three free safeties with Dezmon Southward (knee) and Zeke Motta (neck) also injured.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Lowery is currently projected to start at free safety, but he'll certainly be challenged by third-round pick Dezmen Southward. Whoever wins the position should put up solid defensive numbers. Thomas DeCoud, who held the position last year, tallied 65 total tackles in 2013. DeCoud also tallied 10 total interceptions in 2011 and 2012 combined, so there's plenty of IDP value at free safety in Atlanta. Don't be surprised if the veteran gets the starting nod over the rookie.
The veteran will attempt to hold onto his starting spot, as the team brought in a number of young defensive backs this offseason. Lowery ended last season on injured reserve and missed seven games with an ankle injury. He finished the season with 31 tackles and one interception in nine games.
Lowery will once again be a key part of a much-improved Jacksonville defense that finished top-six in 2011. Lowery finished with 36 tackles in 13 games as a starting CB.
Will compete with Emanuel Cook for playing time at the safety position
