Falcons | Matt Ryan says thumb is fine

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:41:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) said his injured left thumb is fine, and he put a glove on the hand in Week 3 to ensure his grip on the ball.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons have the Carolina Panthers in Week 4, which will present a difficult matchup for Ryan. He'll be a midrange QB1 in fantasy.

Falcons | Matt Ryan tosses pair of touchdowns

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:21:20 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for 240 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26. He injured his thumb late in the fourth quarter and had the thumb taped while being fitted with a glove.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has two 300-yard games under his belt this season, although he missed the mark Monday, and he has two or more touchdown passes in each of his three outings. He has re-emerged as a decent low-end TE1, and he had tremendous success despite Julio Jones not being his normal self Monday.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman scores thrice on MNF

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:20:44 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 12 times for 42 yards with three touchdowns in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26. He added three receptions for 47 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman had been chipping away at Devonta Freeman's playing time lately, but Coleman took a back seat in yardage in this one (207 total yards to 89). Still, Coleman scored three times and continues to see his fantasy stock rise.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman torches NOLA

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:20:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman had 14 carries for 152 yards in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, and he added five receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman's fantasy owners have been wringing their hands early in the season with Tevin Coleman chipping away at Freeman's playing time. He eased minds with a giant stat line, although Coleman also had a big game under the dome. Freeman remains a low-end RB1 in all PPR leagues, and he is a must-start in every other fantasy format.

Falcons | Julio Jones nearly gets blanked

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:19:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was targeted six times in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but he managed just one catch for 16 yards. That first reception did not come until the second half.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been dealing with a sore calf, and he had an ankle issue earlier in the season, too. Whenever he is active you have to have him in there, as this was an anomaly.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu unable to return

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:18:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26. Head coach Dan Quinn said Sanu tried to return but was unable to do so.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu can be a tremendous receiver opposite Julio Jones, but he needs to stay healthy. That has been a problem for him this season. Reserve him until he can officially practice in full and make his return to the starting lineup.

Falcons | Matt Ryan appears to injury thumb

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 20:23:30 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) suffered a left thumb injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 3 game against the New Orleans saints Monday, Sept. 26. He had his thumb taped up and he is wearing a left glove.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has missed just two games in his career, and he has made 102 consecutive starts. He is durable, and fantasy owners can expect him to be ready in Week 4.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu nursing shoulder issue

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 19:17:41 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the second quarter in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints and he is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu is a strong WR3 when he is healthy, but he has had difficulty staying healthy so far this season. He is a gifted athlete and talented replacement for Roddy White if he can stay on the field.

Falcons | Julio Jones blanked in first half

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 19:12:12 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but while the Falcons have seven different receivers with a catch, Jones has zero grabs.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is killing his fantasy owners Monday, but there is still 30 minutes to go against a poor defense. If he is just being used as a decoy, and that certainly looks to be the case, not good.

Falcons | Julio Jones active Monday

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:16:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a big surprise as Jones had already said he'd play tonight. He has one of the best matchups of the week, at least on paper, against a depleted Saints secondary. What's also in his favor is that this matchup has shootout potential, featuring two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL so far this season. Another game with big numbers could be on the horizon if Jones can avoid aggravating the calf injury.
