Weatherspoon (shoulder) finished Sunday's game against the Packers with seven total tackles, an interception, and a 71-yard touchdown return.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Weatherspoon was in the right place at the right time for his interception, as a kicked football landed in his arms, before he scampered 71 yards to the house. He returned to the game in the second half, after suffering a shoulder injury, so although he might be limited in practice this week, it appears the injury isn't too serious.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Weatherspoon started to fulfill his potential as a first-round pick for Atlanta last year, finishing with 115 tackles, which tied for 13th in the league. He will more than likely breeze past those numbers in 2012, though, because former teammate Curtis Lofton left the Falcons in free agency, leaving a 147-tackle void in the Atlanta defense. Although he’s not as established as many top IDPs, Weatherspoon’ ceiling is probably second only to that of Patrick Willis. Weatherspoon is an athletic and disruptive playmaker who can make an impact in coverage and as a pass rusher, too. Despite playing in a strictly 4-3 alignment last year, Weatherspoon managed to finish with four sacks. An improvement in that category would not surprise given that the Falcons figure to run some 3-4 looks under the watch of new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, which should leave Atlanta more free to call blitzes for Weatherspoon.

2011

Ankle and knee injuries disrupted Weatherspoon’s development as a rookie and limited him to only 11 games, but the 2010 first-round pick looked good before the bad luck struck. As a Day 1 starter at outside linebacker, Weatherspoon opened the season with 24 tackles (22 solo) and one sack in his first three starts. Weatherspoon is an aggressive and athletic linebacker who figures to hit the ground running in 2011, making him a good risk in fantasy drafts.

2010

Weatherspoon studied both strongside and weakside linebacker positions during camp and will likely open the season backing up both starters, Stephen Nicholas and Mike Peterson. Peterson is 34 and the torch will be passed to Weatherspoon at season's end or sooner if Weatherspoon becomes the playmaker the Falcons hope he can.
