Falcons | More reps for Devonta Freeman, Jacquizz Rodgers

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:08:13 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RBs Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers are expected to see more repetitions in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) unlikely to play. However, head coach Mike Smith hasn't officially ruled Jackson out yet. The team is anxious, though, to see how Freeman will perform with more touches. RB Jerome Smith, who was promoted from the practice squad this week, will be active against the Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should be your initial play in standard leagues if you're picking between he and Rodgers. Against the Panthers, Freeman could be a very nice FantasyScore play after replacing S-Jax last week and running for a TD.

Falcons | Harry Douglas does some work

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:22:11 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas should be able to play in Week 17 even though he has been limited the last two days. Douglas has lost some targets with Julio Jones back in the lineup but is still a part of the passing game. Douglas could be a flex option, but owners probably would be able to find a better option to use.

Falcons | Roddy White limited

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:13:45 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: White looks to be on track to play this week despite the injury. White has score two touchdowns in his last four games and has posted some good receiving yards in those games. White could be a solid No. 2 or 3 wide receivers for owners on FantasyScore.

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 18:48:00 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) is now expected to sit in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers.
