Falcons | Mohamed Sanu to miss practice

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 10:29:58 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) will not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to check on Sanu's status later in the week to see if he is in danger of missing Week 14. He has been up and down in terms of his receiving yards over the last month but has received a decent number of targets this season. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he plays.

Falcons | Julio Jones will not practice

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 10:13:12 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) will not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 8, but will work on the side.

Fantasy Tip: Jones may be able to play in Week 14 even if he does not practice, but owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He will be a risky option for owners but should still be started if he plays. Owners will need other options ready in case Jones is ruled out.

Falcons | Julio Jones provides optimism

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 07:27:27 -0800

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) has the team optimistic about his status for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: The team isn't as bubbly about Mohamed Sanu's (groin) status against Los Angeles Rams. This would put a bigger onus on Jones, who is a weekly WR1 across all formats.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu's status in question

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 07:26:48 -0800

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) is in question to play in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Julio Jones (toe) is also banged up, but he's expected to be able to play. Taylor Gabriel has been a big-play machine in recent weeks with four touchdowns in a four-game stretch. He'll be an interesting WR3 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu absent Wednesday

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 13:36:55 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) missed practice Wednesday, Dec.7.

Fantasy Tip: Both Sanu and Julio Jones missed practice today, which suddenly makes Taylor Gabriel all the more intriguing. Jones and Sanu aren't necessarily out this week, but Gabriel will see more work if either of them, or both of them, are out or limited at all. Keep tabs on this situation as the week progresses.

Falcons | Julio Jones to sit Wednesday

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 05:19:34 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is expected to sit out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 7, but should practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: He has a midrange matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, and he remains an elite target in fantasy.

Falcons | Jake Matthews has knee sprain

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:31:45 -0800

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu has groin injury

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:27:09 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 13, but he could still practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has had a disappointing inaugural campaign with the Falcons despite being their No. 2 wide receiver. He has seen a little over five targets per game, but he has only managed more than 70 yards three times and has only scored thrice, too, and his third touchdown was back on October 30. He's not a recommended start even if he plays.

Falcons | Julio Jones has turf toe

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:21:59 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is dealing with turf toe, according to head coach Dan Quinn. The injury is not believed to be long-term.

Fantasy Tip: Turf toe can be tricky, but it doesn't sound like Jones' Week 14 status is in doubt at this point. Still, it would behoove fantasy owners to monitor his status throughout the week in case there are any setbacks or further developments.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu quiet in Week 13

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 15:17:23 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught two passes for 26 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has still played well over the past month despite his Week 13 performance and has posted at least 65 yards in three of his last five games. Sanu could be a flex option in deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most standard leagues.

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel catches five passes

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 15:13:12 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught five passes for 44 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel has been targeted at least five times in each of the last four games and appears to have a solid role in the passing game. He has three touchdowns in the last three games and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones posts 113 yards

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 15:08:34 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught seven passes for 113 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jones bounced back again after struggling the previous week and has recorded at least 100 yards in seven games this season. He is a must-start No. 1 receiver no matter who the Falcons are playing.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman has some success

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 15:02:36 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 49 yards on 12 carries against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman has been splitting carries with Devonta Freeman this season but failed for record a catch for the first time this season. He should continue to have a role in the running and passing game moving forward and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.
