Falcons | Julio Jones will play in London

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 09:25:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 24, and he's probable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($7,700; 15.4% of cap) has struggled with drops recently and has frustrated his fantasy owners. This probably isn't the week to count on a bounce back from him against the Lions. Atlanta's offensive line hasn't been giving Matt Ryan enough time to find Jones deep down the field, either.

Falcons | Harry Douglas questionable for Week 8

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 09:23:15 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 24, and he's questionable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas will be a game-time decision Sunday morning. He'll cost you $3,200 (6.4% of cap), but it's best to avoid him this weekend.

Falcons | Harry Douglas a game-time decision

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 05:59:07 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Oct. 26, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas ($3,200; 6.4% of your cap) has more real-life value than fantasy value, and he isn't worth much consideration on FantasyScore right now. His presence would improve Julio Jones ($7,700; 15.4%) and Roddy White's ($6,000; 12%) potential. They are playing in London this weekend, and kickoff is at 9:30 a.m. EST.

Falcons | Julio Jones takes part in practice

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 09:17:43 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been relatively quiet over the last two games but is still a big part of the team's passing offense. Jones has a hefty price tag of $7,700 on FantasyScore, which could be too much for owners.

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 08:02:48 -0700

Falcons | Harry Douglas returns to practice

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:38:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) returned to practice in a limited capacity Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas ($3,200; 6.4% of your cap) returning wouldn't provide much of a fantasy impact on the surface as he's probably not worth considering on FantasyScore. However, his presence would greatly improve Julio Jones ($7,700; 15.4%) and Roddy White's ($6,000; 12%) potential. Jones is one of the most expensive options on FantasyScore right now, so White may receive the bigger boost if Douglas returns.

Falcons | Julio Jones looking to improve

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:35:02 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he should be blamed for the team's offensive struggles, because he needs to make plays when given the chance. "It starts with me," Jones said. "I got to go out there and make plays when they are presented to me. I got to go out there and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat. ... We are out there misreading or dropping balls. We have to fix that. It's nothing that the defense is doing, we have to fix that here."

Fantasy Tip: Jones has played well this season, but has seen his stats drop some over the last two weeks. Jones also has not caught a touchdown in his last four games. Jones is still one of the top targets in the team's passing game and should be a weekly start in most leagues, but his price tag of $7,700 on FantasyScore may be too expensive for owners.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:08:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been limited during practice the last few weeks but has been able to play each time. Jones has a big price tag on FantasyScore at $7,700 but is a good starting option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Falcons | Harry Douglas not practicing

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 05:43:44 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) will not practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Douglas traveled to London with the team and hopes to play in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas ($3,200; 6.4% of your cap) should return to the fringe of flex plays on FantasyScore. However, it would be wise to hold off until he gets his feet back under him after missing four games.

Falcons | Matt Ryan heavily pressured

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 14:20:12 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan was sacked five times as the team's offensive line continues to struggle with injuries and poor play. "We had way too much pressure," head coach Mike Smith said. "Our quarterback was hit and sacked way too much. There were times where we really didn't have a chance to get the play off, and that's very difficult for a quarterback, and we have to do better with our protection."

Fantasy Tip: Ryan's offensive line lost another key piece with Peter Konz (knee) out for the season. A patchwork O-line doesn't bode well for Ryan for the rest of the season, and you should definitely look to avoid him in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.
