Falcons | Mike Smith wants bigger, strong lines

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 19:42:50 -0700

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith is calling for major improvement on both sides of the line of scrimmage. He fears the team could bottom out for a second straight year if they do not change for the better. "I feel like we've lost our way," Smith said Tuesday, April 22. "I feel like I've lost my way a little. The emphasis along the way is to be a bigger and stronger football team and win the line of scrimmage."

Smith said the team was hurt last season by a lack of strength and size up front. They ranked last in rushing, and QB Matt Ryan was sacked a career-high 44 times.

FANTASY TIP: If the team is able to shore up the offensive line, Ryan might re-emerge as a top fantasy option after a trying season. While he loses Tony Gonzalez as a reliable target, he is expected to have healthy targets in Julio Jones and Roddy White. As long as that dynamic duo is healthy, and the protective is improved, Ryan is a Top 10 fantasy option.
