Bartu appears to be the leading candidate to win the starting middle linebacker position vacated by the injured Sean Weatherspoon, who was lost for the season with an Achilles injury, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bartu is currently running with the starters while Tim Dobbins and Prince Shembo work with the second-team. There are plenty of tackles to be had for whoever wins the starting middle linebacker role next to Paul Worrilow, so IDP owners should keep a close eye on this competition. It appears to be Bartu's job to lose at this point.
Bartu tallied six tackles in the Falcons' regular season finale against Carolina.

2015

2014

Batru came out of nowhere and won the starting weakside linebacker role for the Falcons in 2013, a position he'll anchor again this season. He had 85 tackles and 3.5 sacks last season, and a full offseason as the starter can only help. 100 tackles isn't out of the question for Bartu. The Falcons and their fans should be excited about Bartu in 2014 as he continues to get accustomed to the league.
