Atlanta Falcons LB Joplo Bartu was fined $50,000 for an alcohol-related offense after a two-game suspension was rescinded, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Bartu started 27 games over the last two seasons, but he will have to fight for a roster spot in 2015 due to the Falcons' offseason additions.

If the Atlanta Falcons do not look outside of the organization to replace LB Sean Weatherspoon (Achilles'), LBs Joplo Bartu and Paul Worrilow are options to play inside linebacker. LB Prince Shembo is also in the conversation.

Atlanta Falcons LB Sean Weatherspoon (Achilles') suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon Tuesday, June 10, and he will miss the 2014 season.
Fantasy Tip: Joplo Bartu or Prince Shembo might get a crack at a starting job in training camp and the preseason, as Kroy Biermann and Osi Umenyiora are expected to work as outside linebackers. Weatherspoon has been a productive fantasy option in leagues which use individual defensive players (IDPs) in the past. Perhaps Bartu will be a nice sleeper if he can secure the starting job. He did a solid job filling in last year.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons LB Sean Weatherspoon (foot) will return to the starting lineup in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons. "He will start in the ball game on Sunday," head coach Mike Smith confirmed Friday, Nov. 15. "Obviously, with him coming back, we have to move someone out of the starting lineup." LBs Joplo Bartu and Paul Worrilow will keep their jobs at middle and strongside linebacker, while LB Akeem Dent shifts to a reserve role.

Atlanta Falcons LB Paul Worrilow (knee) is working as a starter at outside linebacker opposite LB Joplo Bartu. However, he suffered a knee injury in Week 4, and head coach Mike Smith has not given a timetable for Worrilow's return.
