Atlanta Falcons news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 14:20:12 -0700
Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan was sacked five times as the team's offensive line continues to struggle with injuries and poor play. "We had way too much pressure," head coach Mike Smith said. "Our quarterback was hit and sacked way too much. There were times where we really didn't have a chance to get the play off, and that's very difficult for a quarterback, and we have to do better with our protection."
Fantasy Tip: Ryan's offensive line lost another key piece with Peter Konz (knee) out for the season. A patchwork O-line doesn't bode well for Ryan for the rest of the season, and you should definitely look to avoid him in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is good to go for Week 7, and will cost $8,000 in FantasyScore. The injury should not slow him down and he should be good to go.

Atlanta Falcons DT Jonathan Babineaux (knee), OG Justin Blalock (back), WR Devin Hester (hamstring), LB Prince Shembo (knee) and Nathan Stupar (knee) all fully practiced Friday, Oct. 17, and are probable.

Fantasy Tip: Hester likely will be the No. 3 receiver if he is active for the game. Hester costs $3,400 on FantasyScore, but owners probably should consider spending a little more money on a better option.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should be able to play in Week 7 despite being limited. Jones comes with a hefty price tag of $8,000 on FantasyScore but has been one of the most consistent receivers in fantasy.

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) has a chance to play in Week 8, according to WR Roddy White. Douglas did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 16, and head coach Mike Smith said there is no timetable for Douglas' return.
Fantasy Tip: Douglas likely will miss the team's Week 7 game but may be able to return next week. Owners will need to monitor his practice participation next week to see if he will have a chance to play.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said he knows has been off to a slow start this season and will try to improve his play. "I've gotten off to a really slow start," White said. "Not one of my favorable years that I'm having. But I've got to turn my game around for our team to start playing better. I'm a leader on this team, and I haven't been going out there and playing like Roddy White football. I've got to get back to just being myself - go out there and just cut it loose - and whatever happens, happens." White has dropped three passes on 39 targets this season, which is tied for fourth most among receivers.
Fantasy Tip: White does not appear to be limited by an injury, so he is not playing his best at the moment. White costs $5,800 on FantasyScore, but owners may consider avoiding him until he can be more consistent with his production.
