Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:32:15 -0800

Falcons | Steven Jackson a full go

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:32:03 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be ready to go in Week 12, and has a nice matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Jackson will cost $4,900 this week. If he can't go or is limited, Devonta Freeman would receive most of the work and will cost $3,000 in FantasyScore.

Falcons | Steven Jackson out with illness

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:28:56 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (illness) was out of practice with an illness Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($4,900) should be able to play against the Cleveland Browns, who have allowed the third-most rushing yards (1,190) this season. That makes Jackson a decent play at FantasyScore, but if you're looking for more upside, Devonta Freeman ($3,000) is the better play - not to mention he's a bargain.

Falcons | Harry Douglas on the field

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 09:34:21 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after missing practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas looks to be on track to play in Week 12 and likely will continue to be the team's No. 3 receiver. Douglas only costs $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Falcons | Steven Jackson sitting out

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 09:33:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known why Jackson was not on the field during practice, so owners should watch for an update in the near future. Jackson costs $4,900 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option to use this week. Devonta Freeman would receive more work if Jackson is not able to play and would be a good flex option at $3,000.

Falcons | Julio Jones not practicing

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 09:03:13 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. It appears like Jones will still be ready for the team's Week 12 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones appears to be dealing with an illness, so owners will need to see if he is able to practice Friday, Nov. 21. Jones is the team's top receiver but will be facing a tough Cleveland Browns defense this week. Jones has a price for $7,600 on FantasyScore.

Falcons | Julio Jones doesn't practice

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 12:45:38 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming the illness doesn't linger for four days, Jones ($7,600, 15.2%) will play in a decent matchup with the Cleveland Browns. While Jones' touchdown total leaves something to be desired, he is third among wide receivers in targets, fourth in catches and ninth in yards.

Falcons | Atlanta expects heavy dose of Josh Gordon

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 09:32:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will make his season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, and Falcons head coach Mike Smith doesn't expect the Browns to ease their best receiver back in. "Absolutely I do," Smith said. "They've stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible. And he's a game-changer. He's a guy that with the ball in his hands, he can make plays. So we're anticipating that we're going to get a full dose of him this week." Gordon had a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2014. Smith said they aren't afraid to put CB Desmond Trufant, their best cornerback, in a shadow role on Gordon.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon could be an immediate boost to your fantasy club if you've been stashing him. He could also be an immediate asset to FantasyScore lineups against a Falcons squad that has been generous to wide receivers, especially ones with Gordon's ability.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman to step into bigger role

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 13:06:07 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is likely to step into a bigger backfield role with RB Antone Smith (leg) out for the rest of the season. RB Steven Jackson remains the starter, however.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is the most explosive runner on Atlanta's roster with Smith suffering a season-ending injury. That makes Freeman worth a waiver-wire acquisition for depth. Against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12, Freeman is an intriguing flex play.
