Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan mentioned incorporating CB Robert Alford into the left cornerback spot typically filled by CB Asante Samuel, as the team utilizes more rookies and younger players over the final four games. Alford played 35 snaps in Week 13, while Samuel played 28. "It's that time of year - I think all guys understand it, because (Samuel) is not the only one - across the board on defense and offense," Nolan said.
Fantasy Tip: If you normally depend upon Samuel in IDP fantasy leagues, you might want to go another way. His playing time is dwindling, not because of poor play, but because the team wants to see what it has with its younger players with the club well out of contention.
