Falcons | Atlanta could extend Matt Ryan's deal

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 06:34:37 -0800

The Atlanta Falcons are expected to discuss a contract extension with QB Matt Ryan during the offseason, even though he still has two years remaining on his current contract, according to multiple sources. A potential extension could make him the highest-paid player in the league, surpassing Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's deal.

Fantasy Tip: The 31-year-old Ryan posted career highs in passing yards (4,944) and touchdowns (38) during the 2016 season, while throwing just seven interceptions in 534 attempts. He is one of the leading candidates for the NFL MVP award and should be viewed as an elite option in all fantasy formats.

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel not on injury report

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 13:14:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel should be able to handle his normal workload against the Green Bay Packers even though he has dealt with the injury over the last few weeks. He should see a decent amount of targets during the game and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones listed as limited

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 13:12:48 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was officially limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, but is not listed on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be able to play against the Green Bay Packers and should be a big part of the team's passing game. He has posted at least 60 yards in each of the last four games and has a touchdown in back-to-back games. Owners in all leagues should consider Jones as a No. 1 receiver.

Falcons | Julio Jones logs full practice

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 10:45:46 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) "looked good" while getting in a full practice Friday, Jan. 20, and will not have any limitations in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Great news for Jones, the Falcons and any owners planning on using him in fantasy this weekend. Jones is expected to draw Ladarius Gunter in shadow coverage after the Packers' cornerback was used in the same fashion against Odell Beckham Jr. and Dez Bryant the past two weeks. Bryant dusted Gunter for nine catches, 132 yards and two touchdowns last week, so Jones could easily be the best fantasy play of the week.

Falcons | Atlanta's Thursday injury report

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel still limited

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 14:05:59 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 19.

Fantasy Tip: That's back-to-back limited practices for Gabriel so far this week. He should be able to play as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Julio Jones hasn't practiced yet this week, so Gabriel could see more action if Jones doesn't play or is limited at all (expect him to play). Gabriel is not a bad cheap play in daily contests in what has the makings of a shootout with the Green Bay Packers.

Falcons | Julio Jones to sit again

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 10:17:39 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) will not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 19, but said he will be ready for the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones recorded 67 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional round game and should see plenty of targets against the Green Bay Packers this week. Jones is a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues even though he is dealing with the toe injury.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman with mixed bag against GB

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 07:19:23 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown with four catches for 23 yards and another touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons were without Tevin Coleman, and it was a close game, but the team kind of gave up on the run. Without those two touchdowns, it would have been a poor fantasy output for Freeman. The Packers have allowed just 11.1 fantasy points per game to RBs in the playoffs and no touchdowns. Freeman has a tough matchup in the NFC title game, but he'll be in the second tier of RBs in playoff pools.

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel will be limited

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 11:26:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) will be limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel was able to play in the Divisional round game and should be ready for the NFC Championship game this week. He has been targeted at least six times in four of the last five games and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones will not practice Wednesday

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 10:30:07 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will not practice Wednesday, Jan. 18, by design, according to Falcons head coach Dan Quinn. Jones will "do more" later in the week, per Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: The all-world receiver should be in fantasy lineups if he dresses, which is the expectation. Green Bay's secondary is abysmal, so even a hobbled Jones should find some room.

Falcons | Matt Ryan on hot streak

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:21:28 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has six consecutive seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards. That's tied for the second longest streak in NFL history. He posted a franchise record 4,944 yards in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan is a big reason why the Falcons are in the NFC title game. He's a top MVP candidate coming off a career season. Regression should be expected next season after such a marvelous campaign, but Ryan is still a QB1 consideration.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 15:05:51 -0800

Falcons | Julio Jones should play in NFC Championship

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 09:20:12 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is expected to be limited during practice this week, but head coach Dan Quinn believes Jones will be "ready to rock" for the NFC Championship Game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones departed in the fourth quarter of the Falcons' Divisional Round victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, but it was quickly reported he could have remained in the game had Atlanta not been ahead by multiple scores. Along with Antonio Brown and Julian Edelman, Jones should be in the running for top fantasy receiver honors next weekend when he gets a crack at the Green Bay Packers' shorthanded secondary.
