Atlanta Falcons RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman will continue to operate as a committee, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Coleman accumulated 117 total yards on his 13 touches in Week 1, while Freeman had 40 yards on his 15.
"We know both these guys are going to be a factor. We just had two running backs active (Sunday), so for the whole portion of the game, both of them have done significant things really well. We're going to utilize them both,'' Quinn said.
Fantasy Tip: Freeman should still be considered the favorite for fantasy production in this backfield, but it is becoming clear Atlanta wants to avoid Freeman carrying the offense on his back like he did for a short time last season. Freeman is still in the RB2 conversation, while Coleman is looking like a solid RB3/flex play going forward.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will practice in full on Wednesday, Sept. 7, according to head coach Dan Quinn.
Fantasy Tip: Jones left the third preseason game with a limp after getting tangled up with a defender on a deep ball, but there don't appear to be any concerns about his status moving forward. He should still be a top-three pick in all formats and should be counted on to perform like an elite WR1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn understands that attempting two-point conversions is becoming a bigger part of the game but indicated that the Falcons probably will not attempt two-point conversions often. Quinn said sometimes it is a gut decision on whether or not to go for two points.
Fantasy Tip: The Falcons likely will kick the extra point most of the time but players like Matt Ryan, Devonta Freeman and Julio Jones could see a small boost in value if the team is successful at two-point conversions.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has not had contract talks start yet despite hearing how much the team likes him from owner Arthur Blank and head coach Dan Quinn.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is under contract for one more season, and Quinn has already said he wants to evaluate his roster before making any decisions on what to do. Jones is one of the top wideout threats on the Falcons' roster and is a solid fantasy option entering his fifth season.

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said he's not worried about who has control over the team's 53-man roster or has authority over one thing or another now that new head coach Dan Quinn is in town.
