Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:06:09 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Falcons this week and should see a decent amount of targets. He could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues because of the favorable matchup.

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:05:14 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has said he will play against the New Orleans Saints this week, but owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. Jones will come with some risk but should be a starting candidate in all leagues if he is active.

Falcons | Atlanta won't force the ball to Julio Jones

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 10:04:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon. Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. "You really hope (Jones) is one-on-one, but it's nice when he's not and he's got some bad looks, there's a lot of other opportunities out there (for the other players). … You don't have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you. … You might not have the same numbers for (Jones) and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense," Shanahan said.

Fantasy Tip: Shanahan has a long history of feeding his top receiver, so this is quite the departure from the norm for him. As nice as he makes it sound, however, defenses are going to be content with the Falcons trying to beat them with Mohamed Sanu and Tamme as opposed to Jones, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Even with a slightly reduced target share this season, Jones is still a weekly WR1.

Falcons | Julio Jones expected to play

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 07:22:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (calf) is expected to be available for Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints, even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons have a Monday night game versus New Orleans and owners should check to see if Jones practices Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea of his status. DFS players should look for safer options this week due to the uncertainty surrounding the number of snaps he will see.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu limited

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:54:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu appears to be on track to play in Week 3, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. Sanu could have a bigger role against the New Orleans Saints if Julio Jones is not able to play. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones sits again

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:50:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Jones will be able to practice Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea on his status for Week 3. He should be a starter in all leagues if he is active, but owners should have another option ready in case he is ruled out.
