Neasman had two solo tackles, one pass breakup and one interception during Sunday's blowout loss to the Bills.
Neasman handled just 26 percent of defensive snaps versus Buffalo, so despite a notable IDP performance, he still isn't easy to rely on for fantasy value in most formats. Coming up in Week 11, Neasman and the Jets are set for another divisional matchup, this time hosting the Dolphins.... See More ... See Less

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Appears in all 16 games for Atlanta
Neasman, who registered four tackles during Atlanta's 44-27 Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers, wrapped up the 2020 campaign with 27 tackles and one sack over 16 games.
Neasman took on an enhanced defensive role as the year wore on, twice collecting 97-plus percent of the Falcons' defensive snaps over the final quarter of the regular season. Weeks 1 through 13, he only once garnered more than 40 percent of the workload, but injuries to Damontae Kazee (Achilles) and Darqueze Dennard (quadriceps) opened up secondary snaps down the stretch. Having played all 57 of his career NFL games as a member of the Falcons, Neasman will now prepare to become an unrestricted free agent in March.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Collects Week 15 sack of Brady
Neasman collected eight tackles and a sack during Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Buccaneers.
Starting at free safety for a second consecutive game in place of the injured Ricardo Allen (concussion), Neasman finished behind only Deion Jones (10) in tackles among Falcons defenders. The 29-year-old's second-quarter sack of Tom Brady, meanwhile, forced a Tampa Bay punt. Despite Weeks 14 and 15 marking the first starts of Neasman's five-year career with Atlanta, he's held up reasonably well in coverage by containing opponents to a 89.6 passer rating over a limited sample of six targets....

Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Plays integral special teams role
Neasman appeared in 15 games this season and recorded four tackles and one fumble recovery.
After obliterating career highs by collecting 44 tackles and four pass deflections during 2018, the fourth-year pro out of Florida Atlantic logged just 12 defensive snaps during all of 2019, though he did garner at least two-thirds of the special-teams snaps in 14 of his 15 outings.
