Atlanta Falcons news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:21:28 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Ryan is a big reason why the Falcons are in the NFC title game. He's a top MVP candidate coming off a career season. Regression should be expected next season after such a marvelous campaign, but Ryan is still a QB1 consideration.

Atlanta Falcons DE Adrian Clayborn (biceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Jan. 17. DT Joe Vellano was promoted to the active roster, while free-agent DT Jimmy Staten (Bears) was signed to the practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: Jones departed in the fourth quarter of the Falcons' Divisional Round victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, but it was quickly reported he could have remained in the game had Atlanta not been ahead by multiple scores. Along with Antonio Brown and Julian Edelman, Jones should be in the running for top fantasy receiver honors next weekend when he gets a crack at the Green Bay Packers' shorthanded secondary.

Fantasy Tip: Jones may be limited during practice next week but should receive his normal workload in the NFC Championship game. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and is a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: There are a lot of mouths to feed in Atlanta's offense, but Gabriel's ability to turn a few catches into a bunch of yards has made him a quality fantasy starter.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' (foot) foot injury is not a cause for concern, according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Quinn said Jones could have returned against the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan 14, if needed.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Jones should be just fine for the conference title game, and he is one of the most valuable fantasy assets at any position when he is on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman showed his usual elite burst on more than one occasion. He scored out of the backfield on a 14-yard pass near the end of the first half on a well-designed route that got him free in the end zone after the receivers executed a scissors route, leaving him all by himself near the sideline. All Coleman remains behind Freeman in the rotation, he should continue to produce enough to be an effective DFS option in the NFC Championship game next week.

Fantasy Tip: The rushing line isn't overly impressive, but Freeman did more than enough to make his DFS owners happy, scoring from a yard out in the third quarter. The highlight of his day was a 53-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter that set Atlanta up for a field goal on the drive after his score. Freeman will remain a very smart pick in all playoff formats next week regardless of whether the Falcons face the Dallas Cowboys or the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan took three sacks but was in total control of the Falcons' up-tempo attack otherwise, connecting with Julio Jones, Tevin Coleman and Mohamed Sanu for scores. He did nothing to hurt his argument for NFL MVP, while offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was brilliant once again in getting the matchups he wanted. Ryan should have another field day next week if Julio Jones can play, as neither the Dallas Cowboys nor the Green Bay Packers have enough on defense to hold this passing game in check.
Sat, 14 Jan 2017 16:33:29 -0800
Fantasy Tip: It is unclear whether or not Jones aggravated an existing toe sprain or suffered another injury. If his day is over, he will finish with six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. Taylor Gabriel, Mohamed Sanu and Justin Hardy will wrap up the game as the Falcons' top three receivers.
