Atlanta Falcons news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:08:13 -0800
Atlanta Falcons RBs Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers are expected to see more repetitions in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) unlikely to play. However, head coach Mike Smith hasn't officially ruled Jackson out yet. The team is anxious, though, to see how Freeman will perform with more touches. RB Jerome Smith, who was promoted from the practice squad this week, will be active against the Panthers.
Fantasy Tip: Freeman should be your initial play in standard leagues if you're picking between he and Rodgers. Against the Panthers, Freeman could be a very nice FantasyScore play after replacing S-Jax last week and running for a TD.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant should be good to go for Week 17, and should be considered for your FantasyScore roster this week.

Fantasy Tip: White could see more work this week if Julio Jones is not a full strength, and should be considered for your FantasyScore roster.

Atlanta Falcons OG Jon Asamoah (back) and CB Josh Wilson (hamstring) both were limited in practice Friday, Dec. 26, and are questionable for Week 17. CB Robert McClain (illness) did not practice and is questionable. WR Harry Douglas (foot) fully practiced and is probable.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson may not play in the team's Week 17 game, and should not be considered for the team's game this week.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Jones can get on the the field, he may be a risky play in FantasyScore, especially if he is not a full strength.

Fantasy Tip: While it is a good sign for his availability that he is practicing, he may be a risky play in FantasyScore this week, especially if he is not at full strength. There may be safer options available to you this week.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has a good field goal percentage this season and could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:22:11 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Douglas should be able to play in Week 17 even though he has been limited the last two days. Douglas has lost some targets with Julio Jones back in the lineup but is still a part of the passing game. Douglas could be a flex option, but owners probably would be able to find a better option to use.

Fantasy Tip: White looks to be on track to play this week despite the injury. White has score two touchdowns in his last four games and has posted some good receiving yards in those games. White could be a solid No. 2 or 3 wide receivers for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been dealing with different injuries this season but has been able to play in most of the games. Jones would be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore if he is active for the game.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 11:04:08 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Jackson may not play in the team's Week 17 game, and he should not be considered for FantasyScore contests this week.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 10:48:01 -0800
Fantasy Tip: This is not a good sign for Jones heading into Week 17. Even if he does get on the field, he may not be at full strength. There are probably better options available to you in FantasyScore this week.
Wed, 24 Dec 2014 18:48:00 -0800
Fantasy Tip: The team will have practice squad call-up Jerome Smith active, and he will join rookie Devonta Freeman in the backfield for the regular season finale. It isn't official Jackson will sit, but FantasyScore owners probably do not want to take that risk.
