Atlanta Falcons169 - Snaps played by Keanu Neal in 2019. A season after suffering a torn ACL, Neal’s season ends in week three with a torn achilles. It’s just devastating. Before the two injuries, Neal was seen by some as the dynasty S1. Last season, Ricardo Allen replaced Neal at SS with Damontae Kazee replacing Allen at FS. Then Allen went down and it became a huge mess. Kazee is currently the nickel CB and it would likely be difficult for him to play both nickel CB and FS. Kemal Ishmael logged 39 snaps, 55%, after not playing a single defensive snap in week two. He’s the likely replacement for Neal. But the Falcons like Kazee as a playmaker, so it wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibilities to see Kazee play safety in base packages and move into the slot for sub-packages with Ishmael limited to sub-packages. This situation will need to be watched going forward.
