Falcons | Tevin Coleman still in the protocol

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 09:43:57 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Thursday, Dec. 14, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Friday will be a big day for Coleman, but Devonta Freeman could have just that against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if Coleman is out.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman not at practice Tuesday

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 10:09:19 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) was not at the open portion of practice Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman suffered a concussion late in the Falcons' Thursday night victory over the New Orleans Saints, so this is not a surprise. However, Atlanta does not play again until Monday night, so owners may not have the luxury of waiting for clarity on his status if this drags into the weekend. Perhaps owners will gain some clarity on Thursday when the first injury report for their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers comes out. If he plays, he'll be a flex option with RB2 upside in a soft matchup.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman dealing with concussion

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 10:55:29 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Friday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman suffered the injury of late in Thursday's win over the New Orleans Saints, but he will have 10 days to recover as the Falcons do not play again until Monday Night Football to wrap up Week 15. Devonta Freeman enjoyed a 24-9 advantage in touches over Coleman in Week 14 and projects for even more work versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if Coleman is not cleared in time.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu scores on TNF

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 21:38:31 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu tallied six receptions (on eight targets), 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's three-point win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has been up and down this year, but by scoring Thursday night he has now logged a touchdown in four of his last seven games. While Sanu has some value in larger leagues, he's not someone you want to pin your playoff hopes on.

Falcons | Julio Jones almost cracks 100

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 21:25:48 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught five passes for 98 yards against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Dec. 7. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: After getting shut down by Minnesota, Jones rebounded with a solid night's work against the Saints. While Jones has only three 100-plus-yard games on the year, Thursday marked the third time he's finished in the 90s. He'll be a strong WR1 next week against the same Buccaneers squad he eviscerated for 253 yards and two scores back in Week 12.

Falcons | Matt Ryan struggles in win

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 21:10:40 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 15 of his 27 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during the team's Week 14 victory over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan channeled Nathan Peterman Thursday night, tossing three picks in the span of four passing attempts. He eventually made enough plays to win, but the end result was arguably his worst statistical performance of 2017. Things should be easier next week versus the lone non-contender in the NFC South, Tampa Bay, who Ryan passed for 317 yards against in the first meeting.

Falcons | Nine carries for Tevin Coleman

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 20:58:49 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 32 yards in a 20-17 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman has just 17 carries for 54 yards in the two games since Devonta Freeman returned to the lineup, and Coleman is back to being a flex option for fantasy owners.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman carries the load

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 20:52:42 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 24 times for 91 yards and a touchdown in a 20-17 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman has resumed his role as the lead back in Atlanta, and he should at least be a low-end RB1 moving forward.
