Falcons | Roddy White to sit out?

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:36:28 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) isn't expected to be active for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18, in the opinion of CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Fantasy Tip: We won't know for sure that White is inactive for another few hours, but it's safe to stray from him in your FantasyScore lineups. Julio Jones is a strong play, but downgrade Matt Ryan a bit in your weekly rankings.

Falcons | Roddy White expected to play

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 12:05:56 -0700

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 3 unless a dramatic occurrence happens between now and the game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like White will be on the field for Week 3, but he could be limited by the injury during the game. Owners should consider White as a risky option in all leagues this week. White costs $6,800 on FantasyScore, which may be too much to spend for some owners.

Falcons | Julio Jones probable for Week 3

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:06:59 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) practiced for the second straight day Wednesday, Sept. 17, and is probable for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will play on Thursday night, and his $7,700 (15.4% of cap) FantasyScore salary becomes a bit more bearable now that Roddy White (hamstring) is questionable.

Falcons | Roddy White could play despite absence

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 10:43:25 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) doesn't need to practice at all this week in order to play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a chance we see White on the field for Thursday night football. However, he likely won't be 100 percent, and he could have his snaps limited, making it unwise to run with him at FantasyScore for a price of $6,800 (13.6% of cap). Julio Jones becomes much more intriguing for your lineups.

Falcons | Roddy White questionable for Week 3

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 09:27:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: White should be considered a risky play in all leagues because there is a chance he does not play or is limited by his injury. White costs $6,800 on FantasyScore this week, which is probably too expensive for owners given his injury concerns.

Falcons | Julio Jones fully practices

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 12:46:06 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should play in the team's Thursday night game and has a FantasyScore price of $7,700. With Roddy White's status up in the air, Jones could see even more targets than normal and is a strong play in FantasyScore this week.

Falcons | Roddy White not practicing

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 08:55:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is not practicing Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: White probably will play Thursday, but if this turns out to be more than rest and he misses tomorrow, he'll be a shaky FantasyScore option at $6,800 (11.8% of your cap).

Falcons | Julio Jones limited in practice

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:26:20 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Monday, Sept. 15, due to his ankle issue.

Fantasy Tip: The practice report for Monday is an estimation, as the league requires an injury report but there is no physical practice. Jones' status for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have more clarity Tuesday and Wednesday. He fought through injury Sunday in Cincinnati, and should likely be ready to go.
