Each NFL Team's Worst Player of the 2018 Regular Season

Atlanta Falcons: DE Vic Beasley

Edge-rusher Vic Beasley has carried high expectations ever since the Atlanta Falcons drafted him eighth overall in 2015. He broke out with a 15.5-sack, All-Pro campaign in 2016, but he's been a marginal pass-rusher at best in the two years since.

As Brent Rollins of Pro Football Focus wrote in mid-October, opposing linemen have adjusted to Beasley's pass-rush moves, and he has not responded: "NFL tackles have been able to sit on Beasley's speed rush, frequently push him past the pocket and easily keep him from disrupting the quarterback."

Beasley has 14.0 sacks in his three seasons other than 2016, and he's a major liability against the run. Given his fifth-year option salary of $12.8 million, it wouldn't be a shock if the Falcons cut him loose this offseason.

It should be a group award...'OL'.   They played like dog sh*t in 12 of the 15 games. 

I think they actually only played like crap in 11 of 15 games lol

Beasley as our worst player? Nah. Most disappointing? Sure, but not the worst. 

 

That really sounds like that's where it's coming from. With all the seeming potential he had, along with that first season.

He isn’t an all-around DE...but he is a very good situational pass rusher who had a good 2nd half.  I can think of many worse players who played significant snaps

But is he worth 12 m.....and he’s awful against the run

Ryan Schraeder and Ben Garland are our worst players. Garland is a backup forced to play starter snaps but Schraeder has been sawdust all year

Wes was worse than Garland. Out side of Mack and Mathews every one is straight out garbage.

That's our 2018 season in a nutshell. We are discussing which 3 starting OL were in contention for the worst player on the team.

There is no contention. Schraeder had it locked. Fusco was worse than Wes and Garland.
