Falcons | Nickel role still unsettled

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 20:20:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons CBs Robert McClain, Javier Arenas and Josh Wilson will continue their battle for the nickelback role during the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Mike Smith. "I don't really want to talk about who's going to get the first look, but all three are going to play," Smith said. "I don't think you can read into who gets the first snaps. It's going to be a matter of guys getting an opportunity to go out there and compete. We will put them in much quicker in the ball game then we have in the previous weeks. They won't take a whole half. It will be rotations by series."

Falcons | Want power ground game

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 19:30:41 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers was stopped on a fourth-and-1 run during the team's third preseason game, and heading into the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, head coach Mike Smith said he wants to emphasize being able to run the ball effectively in obvious running situations.

Fantasy Tip: If Smith sticks to that plan during the year, it could lead to more chances for Steven Jackson around the goal line. Jackson is a risky pick because of all his recent injury issues, but if healthy, he will have a big role in the offense and RB2 upside. Consider scooping him up as a third running back if the injury concerns cause him to slide in your draft.

Falcons | Steven Jackson could play

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 13:21:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could receive some playing time in the final preseason game, according to head coach Mike Smith. Jackson is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: It would be good for Jackson to get some playing time before the start of the season. It appears like Jackson will be ready to go for Week 1 and likely will be in most starting lineups in fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Steven Jackson practicing

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 12:06:41 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has been sidelined with a hamstring injury during training camp, but it looks like he is making his way back. Jackson probably will be the team's starter if he is healthy. Owners should consider Jackson as a weekly flex option if they select him in their drafts.
