Fri, 28 Oct 2016 13:49:35 -0700
Atlanta Falcons DE Dwight Freeney (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 8. WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion), CB C.J. Goodwin (hamstring) and OT Jake Matthews (wrist) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has caught more than three catches on only two games this season and has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last six games. Owners on all leagues should avoid Sanu and look for other options to use.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 13:35:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Freeman will receive most of the snaps at running back this week with Tevin Coleman ruled out. He probably will be more involved in the passing game as well and should be a starting running back in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: There is speculation Coleman may only miss two weeks. In the meantime, Devonta Freeman should receive the bulk of backfield touches in Atlanta's high-octane offense. Terron Ward may spot him on occasion and the Falcons added Stevan Ridley this week to boost their depth, but Freeman should be considered a top-end RB1 despite the difficult matchup.

Atlanta Falcons LB Dwight Freeney (quadriceps) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 27. CB C.J. Goodwin (hamstring) was limited, while WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and OT Jake Matthews (wrist) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has a favorable matchup versus the Green Bay Packers, but he has been largely inconsistent this year. Starting him as a flex is agreeable, at least for this week, but anything more than that is too risky.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman is not expected to play in Week 8, but owners will know more about his status later in the week. Devonta Freeman should see most of the playing time if Coleman is ruled out and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is expected to receive a lot of playing time in Week 8 because Tevin Coleman likely will not play because of an injury. Owners in all leagues should considered Freeman as a No. 1 or No. 2 running back this week.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has been largely inconsistent in his first season with the Falcons. He and the Falcons could very well be involved in a shootout with the Green Bay Packers, though, so don't completely disregard the Falcon's No. 2 receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman appears to be headed for a doubtful status this week, in which case Devonta Freeman would be the featured back. The Green Bay Packers have been stellar against the run this year, but Freeman's running ability and pass-catching prowess still make him an RB1 play.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Freeman's status over the next few days. He'll be Atlanta's go-to guy in the backfield this week if he does play with Tevin Coleman likely sidelined. If Freeman is good to go, he's an RB1 even in a tough matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman isn't expected to play against the Green Bay Packers this week. Devonta Freeman should see most of the work, and the team just picked up Stevan Ridley. Freeman is an RB1 consideration, and Ridley could be a flex back if he's active and able to catch on quickly enough.
