Fantasy Tip: Douglas has a price of $3,000 on FantasyScore but should not be a starting option for owners this week.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Atlanta Falcons CB Robert Alford (wrist), WR Harry Douglas (foot) and OT Jonathan Scott (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. OG Jon Asamoah (shoulder) was limited, while DT Jonathan Babineaux (knee) and WR Devin Hester (wrist) practiced in full.

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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Steven Jackson will still see starter repetitions with Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers likely seeing increased playing time, particularly on passing downs.

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 11:39:07 -0800
Fantasy Tip: This should mean more playing time for Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers, but neither is worth starting at this point. Steven Jackson is still the running back to own and start from Atlanta.
