Falcons | Austin Hooper quiet in SNF victory

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:55:22 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted two receptions for seven yards in Week 2 against the Packers on just two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper had a huge stat line in the opening game win in Chicago, but we told you to tamp down expectations. His targets remained just about the same, but he had the one big play last week. Until he sees an uptick in targets he should be treated more as a TE2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 3 in Detroit.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu useful in Sunday's win

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:54:47 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu managed five receptions for 85 yards in Week 2 against the Packers on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu stepped up his game and was a nice secondary target in Matt Ryan's arsenal, which is exactly why he was brought in last season. Still, he is only worth a look as a low-end WR4 or WR5 in PPR fantasy formats heading into Week 3 at Detroit.

Falcons | Julio Jones posts 108 yards in win

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:54:19 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted five receptions for 108 yards on nine targets in Week 2 against Green Bay.

Fantasy Tip: It was a little disappointing for fantasy owners, as Jones had 93 yards at halftime. However, the team built a giant lead early in the third quarter and shifted to a run-heavy offense with very limited pass attempts to keep his second-half numbers down. He'll look to keep up the solid production in Week 3 at Detroit.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman sees eight touches, TD

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:53:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed six times for 42 yards in Week 2 against the Packers and he added two receptions for three yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats, but his fantasy appeal is rather limited as long as Devonta Freeman is healthy and seeing a majority of the backfield touches. The Falcons travel to meet the Lions in Week 3.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman finds end zone twice

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:53:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman carried 19 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 against Green Bay.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman was effective in the red zone early in the game, then the team used the back to hammer on the Packers and chew clock with a big lead. He remains an elite fantasy back heading into Week 3 at Detroit and beyond.

Falcons | Matt Ryan threw for 252 yards, TD

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:30:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 19 of his 28 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners likely were disappointed in Ryan's performance, as he had over 200 yards passing at half. However, with a rather lopsided score in the third quarter, the team shifted to a run-heavy offense with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman stealing the show. Ryan will look for better results in Week 3 in Detroit.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu due for big game?

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 20:15:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, and last year, he recorded a season-high nine catches for a season-high 84 yards and a touchdown against the Packers in the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu also caught a touchdown against the Packers in the postseason. He could be worth a look as a flex play in deeper leagues in Week 2.
