Falcons | Julio Jones expected for Matt Ryan's training

Wed, 20 Jun 2018 16:55:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be joining his teammates for QB Matt Ryan's annual passing camp that he will be holding in July. "There's probably about 12 (Falcons players) that are going to get together," Ryan said. "And (Jones) will certainly be a part of that."

Fantasy Tip: Jones skipped minicamp but it looks like he'll be part of this effort when Atlanta's offensive players get together. He's seeking an adjusted contract but it shouldn't prevent the star wide-out from being ready for Week 1 of the upcoming season. As usual, he'll be a WR1 entering the new campaign. Despite posting only three scores last year, Jones still put up 1,444 yards on 88 catches. The touchdowns figure to spike up.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley making impression

Wed, 20 Jun 2018 08:44:19 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley is already having an impact on his teammates, particularly his defensive teammates. S Ricardo Allen credited Ridley for being a disciplined route-runner and moving like a veteran. "I just want to see when he becomes a veteran how much better a player he's going to be," Allen said.

Fantasy Tip: It may take some time for Ridley to acclimate to the professional level which isn't uncommon for a rookie but he's on the right track. Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu stunt Ridley's upside, but he's a WR3 to WR4 candidate from a redraft point of view.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley adjusting well

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 20:13:07 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley has impressed head coach Dan Quinn with his performance in OTAs, particularly his football IQ.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley adds another potent weapon to Atlanta's offense, and he should see plenty of friendly matchups while playing alongside Julio Jones. He is a WR4 with upside in redraft leagues and a first-round pick in rookie drafts.

Falcons | QB plans to work out with Julio Jones

Wed, 13 Jun 2018 18:08:32 -0700

Atlanta QB Matt Ryan said he plans to work out with the receivers before training camp and expects WR Julio Jones to participate in the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has skipped most of the offseason workouts because of his contract situation but should report to training camp on time. Jones is one of the top receivers in the NFL and will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues. Ryan also has a chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Falcons | No minicamp for Julio Jones

Mon, 11 Jun 2018 14:13:20 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will not attend mandatory minicamp this week.

Fantasy Tip: Jones continues to wait for a new contract, but he has said that he wants to be a Falcon and loves the team he's on. It's hard to believe Jones would hold out too far into the offseason. He's too valuable to Atlanta and would lose too much money. Keep drafting him as a top three to five wide receiver.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman running smarter

Sun, 10 Jun 2018 20:41:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman has been working with running backs coach Bernie Parmalee on "getting skinny" when he finishes runs to help reduce the hits he takes and stay healthier over the course of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman battled multiple injuries last year, but he still managed more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage and scored eight times. Those numbers should increase if he can stay on the field for 16 games, and Freeman remains a low-end RB1.
