Falcons | Julio Jones doesn't practice Thursday

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:04:35 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Despite having just one touchdown on the year, Jones can still be a strong WR1 option on any given week, especially this one as he'll be facing a Seahawks defense that will be missing a couple of key players. Jones is overdue for some scores, so hopefully that number begins to ascend towards its norm on Monday.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:51:49 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is still productive, but his one touchdown has limited his appeal after being taken as a stud WR1. He remains a low-end WR1 against the Seattle Seahawks this week.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman idle Thursday

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:19:56 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) won't practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is likely out this week, and Tevin Coleman has RB1 written all over him against the Seattle Seahawks.

Falcons | Matt Ryan quickest to 40,000 yards

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 19:02:52 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan became the quickest quarterback in NFL history to reach 40,000 passing yards (151 games) with his performance in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys, breaking New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' record by one game.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has had a fine season up to this point, but given the many career bests that he set a year ago, he's also left a little bit more to be desired from owners who invested an early draft pick on the Falcons' veteran signal-caller. For instance, Ryan's 263.6 yards per game is his lowest mark since 2011. Despite this, he's still worth plugging in the lineup every week and could churn out numbers closer to his norm throughout the rest of the second half of the year.

Falcons | Team confident in Tevin Coleman

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:59:58 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman might be called upon to start in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks with RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) uncertain. Head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday, Nov. 15, that the team is confident in Coleman's ability to shoulder the load.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman, who hasn't lost a fumble in 30 games, might be the workhorse against the Seattle Seahawks. While it's not a particularly attractive fantasy matchup, he is a decent low-end RB2 or flex option if Freeman is inactive.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman in protocol

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 11:13:14 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Freeman has not been ruled out for Week 11, however, contrary to previous reports. Furthermore, this is Freeman's first concussion of the year. He suffered a knee injury the previous week, not a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Tevin Coleman has the potential to be featured next week, but we'll need to keep tabs on Freeman's status throughout the week. The good news is that Freeman has an extra day to recover since the Falcons play next Monday night. If Freeman does miss the game then Coleman has RB1 upside even in a tough matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman with upside

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 08:17:49 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman figures to see a larger role with RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) expected to miss Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman doesn't have the greatest matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. However, he figures to see heavy work and should be in the RB1 discussion. Terron Ward could also be used as a flex play if you have to cover an injury.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman likely out for Week 11

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 08:14:52 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is unlikely to play in Week 11 after suffering his second concussion of the season. It's possible he could miss multiple games.

Fantasy Tip: Tevin Coleman becomes an RB1 against the Seattle Seahawks next week. Terron Ward could also be a sneaky flex play.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu quiet in Week 10

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:52:51 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted three receptions for 29 yards on five targets in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has three or more receptions in seven of his eight games, but he has gone backwards with just 52 total receiving yards over the past two outings. Still, he isn't a bad low-end WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.
