Atlanta Falcons news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 09:01:35 -0800
Fantasy Tip: White ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had just four catches for 24 yards on nine targets last week. It's safe to say the 34-year-old doesn't hold much FantasyScore weight for Week 12 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: We don't know if Freeman will be able to go through the protocol in time to play in Week 12, so his status will need to be monitored throughout the week. If he can't play, Tevin Coleman should be considered a RB3.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) did well despite the struggles of Matt Ryan at quarterback, as he caught over half of Ryan's yards in the loss. He is worth sticking by despite Ryan's inefficient performances in the team's current slump.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't a bad pickup at this price in FantasyScore, but wait and see if Freeman will play first. He has to go through concussion protocol and may have to miss a game, and if he does then Coleman may get to start.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) has had some horrible luck the past few weeks as Atlanta has fallen into a slump. The yardage numbers are good, but three interceptions will kill you in any fantasy league. At this price Ryan is overvalued.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman will have to pass the concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so owners will have to monitor his practice participation next week. Tevin Coleman would start if Freeman misses time and could be a decent starting option in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman likely will be tested for a concussion and will miss the rest of the game if he does have a concussion. Tevin Coleman would become the No. 1 running back if Freeman misses time and could be a decent starting option against certain opponents.

Fantasy Tip: Don't overlook the fact that Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is making his return after missing the last two games. Indy could be preoccupied with trying to stop Julio Jones on the outside, freeing up Hankerson for a big game. He certainly could return excellent value at his FantasyScore price.

Atlanta Falcons S Robenson Therezie (hamstring) is out for Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts. CB Robert Alford (groin), LB Justin Durant (calf), DE Tyson Jackson (ribs), DT Grady Jarrett (elbow), S William Moore (groin) and DT Paul Soliai (concussion) are probable. Therezie was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 20, while the others were all full participants.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is quite a gamble, but with Vontae Davis likely to shadow Julio Jones, things could open up for Hankerson. He's a wild card flyer on FantasyScore.

Atlanta Falcons S Robenson Therezie (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 19. CB Robert Alford (groin), LB Justin Durant (calf) and S William Moore (groin) were limited. DE Tyson Jackson (ribs), DT Grady Jarrett (elbow) and DT Paul Soliai (concussion) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will need to be tracked this weekend as he has missed the last few games. If he plays, he may be rusty and not see as many targets as usual, so it might be best to wait at least a week before starting him again.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) will have to work really hard to earn his FantasyScore price tag this week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) returned to the practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 18, and QB Matt Ryan was very glad to have one of his weapons back. "Hank has had a great year for us when he's been able to go," Ryan said, "and I think having him back opens up a lot of things for everybody. It makes us a better offense."
Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore as a WR3 or flex play until he can officially return to game action and make it through a full outing without any lingering effects of his injury.
