Takkarist McKinley Lighter During Offseason

Atlanta Falcons defensive end Takkarist McKinley received the praise of head coach Dan Quinn after organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp. "I think he's lighter, his speed and versatility seem ramped up. For him to go through his first offseason, as you know he missed with his left shoulder, his second year with his right shoulder. To see him lighter, faster and more explosive, that to me was someone who jumped out," Quinn said. McKinley is a huge part of what makes the Falcons defense go, and they should be improved. However, from a fantasy perspective they're still more of a No. 2 unit at this point.

Takk McKinley Seeing Snaps At Linebacker

Atlanta Falcons defensive end Takk McKinley has spent some time at organized team activities at linebacker playing over the tight end. The 23-year-old is entering his third season in the NFL and has 13 sacks over his first two years in 31 games. The first-round pick in 2017 could be a more effective pass rusher if he's moved around, and the returning players on Atlanta's D should also help him become more effective in 2019.

Takkarist McKinley Returns To Practice

Atlanta Falcons defensive end Takkarist McKinley (groin) is back at practice on Friday after missing the last two days. McKinley is one of the better young pass rushers in the game and already has two sacks through the first two weeks. He's not a lock to play in Week 3 against the Saints, and if he doesn't it'll be good news for New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees.
