Falcons | Taylor Gabriel signs RFA tender

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 15:04:55 -0700

Atlanta Falcons restricted free-agent WR Taylor Gabriel signed his one-year tender worth $2.81 million on Saturday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel emerged as a big-play threat last season by scoring seven times on only 39 touches, including six touchdown catches. He's likely to remain the third receiver in Atlanta again this year behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, but his role shouldn't change much even with the departure of former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. He's worth a look late in drafts.

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 11:09:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff believes there will be opportunities to move up from the 31st overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, Atlanta has heavily scouted pass rushers. Missouri DE Charles Harris or Tennessee DE Derek Barnett are among those pass rushers who could be available in the 20s.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman deal won't come soon

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 12:38:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is expected to receive a contract extension, but a deal is not anticipated in the near future. It is not likely that the two sides will commence negotiations before training camp and negotiations could spill into the regular season. Freeman has one year remaining on his rookie contract.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman undoubtedly deserves a big, new extension. He has averaged 1,587.5 total yards and 13.5 total touchdowns over the last two seasons and is comfortably in RB1 territory again this year. He has added value in PPR leagues.

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel reports without signing

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:54:12 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel reported for organized team activities Monday, April 17, without yet signing his free-agent tender of $2.746 million. Other teams have until Friday, April 21, to sign Gabriel to an offer sheet, so it is possible he is just waiting until the last minute to see if he can generate any outside interest.

Fantasy Tip: While he's waiting for such a scenario to play out just in case, it seems unlikely another team would surrender a second-round draft pick by signing the emerging wide-out to an offer sheet. Even so, Gabriel proved his worth last year by notching six touchdown receptions in his first year with the Falcons, tying him with Julio Jones for the team lead. He deserves a late-round flier in deep leagues for having an active role in Atlanta's explosive offense.
