Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has turned into Atlanta's No. 2 wide receiver this year, but disappointed in Week 5. He's worth another look on FantasyScore this week in what could be a high-scoring affair with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) has been playing out of his mind the last three weeks, so it's hard to believe he won't play this Thursday. Because of his recent success, he'll cost a pretty penny on FantasyScore, but he's worth it with the way he's been playing.

Fantasy Tip: At his hefty price, Jones ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) could be a bit of a risk this week against the New Orleans Saints. On paper, this contest looks like a shootout, but that could lure owners into a trap if Jones is limited at all. Invest at your own risk.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) had his hamstring issue flare up again last week but played in Week 5. With the short week, it's questionable whether they can get him ready to play. It's a good matchup, but with the team at 5-0, you wonder whether he'll be limited or used as a decoy. Buyer beware on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) had his hamstring issue flare up again last week but played in Week 5. With the short week, it's questionable whether they can get him ready to play. Leonard Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) and Roddy White ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) would receive a lot more attention on offense and could be worth plugging into FantasyScore lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson injured his ribs during the Week 5 game but was able to return to the game, but his availability for the Week 6 game is still uncertain. Owners should monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he is able to play because he has had a solid role in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman has been on a roll with seven touchdowns in the last three games and at least 100 rushing yards in two of those games. Freeman should be a solid starting option as long as he is producing in the running game.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons play Thursday, Oct. 15, so Jones is probably receiving an extra day off to recover. Jones had solid game with five receptions for 67 yards in Week 5 and should be a starting option every week.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons saw something they liked about Washington's coverage on tight ends, as they worked all game to exploit that. It won't be often Tamme ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) outgains Julio Jones. Still, if he and Matt Ryan continue to click he could be a solid low-end FantasyScore option going forward.

Fantasy Tip: White ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) called for the ball more this week, but apparently that fell on deaf ears. He is no longer a trusted FantasyScore option at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is a stud more often than not, but facing a strong Washington defense was going to be tough and it turned out to be true. He'll have a much bigger day under the lights on Thursday night in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had a role before his rib injury, but after two weeks of Devonta Freeman ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) emerging as a star, the rookie Coleman has a very small role in the offense. Avoid in FantasyScore unless Freeman is forced of the lineup.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 42 pass attempts for 254 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins. He also ran three times for 20 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) entered with six touchdowns and just two interceptions, and none since Week 1. He is still a dependable FantasyScore option going forward despite laying an egg in this one. Plus, he has at least 254 passing yards in each of his five outings.
