Fri, 27 Feb 2015 07:26:55 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas was released Friday, Feb. 27.

Falcons | Steven Jackson to be cut

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 16:23:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson will reportedly be released Friday, Feb. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson can be considered over the hill at this point in his career, though he still does have some fantasy value if nothing more than as a goal line running back; he had six touchdowns in each of his two seasons with the Falcons. Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers will take over duties out of the Falcons' backfield, with Freeman likely having more fantasy value.

Falcons | Matt Bryant gets extension

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 14:40:42 -0800

Falcons | Justin Forsett interests Atlanta

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 08:28:04 -0800

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent RB Justin Forsett is of high interest to the Atlanta Falcons if he reaches free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett would land in a committee role with Devonta Freeman, and this would likely be a step back from his elite fantasy status last season. Forsett turns 30 in November, and there are plenty of questions about whether he can sustain last season's RB1 output. He'll likely be a low-end RB1 in most drafts.
