Falcons | Atlanta interested in Niles Paul?

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 11:07:44 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Niles Paul figures to draw interest from the Atlanta Falcons once the free agency period begins. Paul is familiar with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme and TE Levine Toilolo hasn't exactly proven himself to be the answer at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Paul performed swimmingly when Jordan Reed was injured last season and proved to have TE1 potential when he's given the opportunity to start. Nothing is set in stone yet, of course, so keep an eye on Paul and the Falcons once free agency commences.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman to be full-time back?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 11:06:18 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman could be the full-time back in new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme next season, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff. "My first impression of him is that you can feel the quickness. In our outside-zone-system, I feel like this is tailor-made for a guy who can really explode off the edge," head coach Dan Quinn said.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman could excel in this new offensive running scheme under Shanahan, and impending free-agent backs Antone Smith and Jacquizz Rodgers could land elsewhere. Heading into 2015 fantasy football drafts, Freeman could be an excellent choice as your No. 2 RB.

Falcons | Harry Douglas released by Atlanta

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 07:26:55 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas was released Friday, Feb. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas' age-30 season was marred by injuries, but he was a factor early in the season. His upside is limited, but he can be a solid WR4 in PPR leagues.

Falcons | Steven Jackson to be cut

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 16:23:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson will reportedly be released Friday, Feb. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson can be considered over the hill at this point in his career, though he still does have some fantasy value if nothing more than as a goal line running back; he had six touchdowns in each of his two seasons with the Falcons. Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers will take over duties out of the Falcons' backfield, with Freeman likely having more fantasy value.

Falcons | Matt Bryant gets extension

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 14:40:42 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant signed a contract extension Wednesday, Feb. 25. Details were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: While kickers may be the most flexible position in fantasy football, Bryant was one of just five kickers to play in at least 15 games and make 90% of his field goals. He's a top-tier candidate heading into 2015.
