Falcons | Devonta Freeman could receive extension

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 11:33:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said he is confident that the team will be able to sign RB Devonta Freeman to a contract extension later this year.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman was ranked in the top 10 in rushing yards (1,079) and rushing touchdowns (11) this season and will continue to receive most of the carries next season. He will continue to share playing time with Tevin Coleman but should be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones should be fine for camp

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 11:27:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is expected to be at full health in time for the start of training camp in late July. Jones was wearing a boot, but he appeared to be moving around well and was not using crutches. A minor procedure was performed on Jones' foot March 6 after he played with the injury for most of the second half of last season.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be primed for another top WR1 season once he's recovered. He finished as the WR6 last season despite missing two games. Jones is a consensus first-round pick and should be one of the first three wide receivers taken in fantasy drafts.
