Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester is the greatest returner of all time, according to Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said Hester is a special player with the ball in his hands and is not looking forward to going against him Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should play in the team's Thursday night game and has a FantasyScore price of $7,700. With Roddy White's status up in the air, Jones could see even more targets than normal and is a strong play in FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: White probably will play Thursday, but if this turns out to be more than rest and he misses tomorrow, he'll be a shaky FantasyScore option at $6,800 (11.8% of your cap).

Fantasy Tip: The practice report for Monday is an estimation, as the league requires an injury report but there is no physical practice. Jones' status for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have more clarity Tuesday and Wednesday. He fought through injury Sunday in Cincinnati, and should likely be ready to go.

Fantasy Tip: The league requires teams playing Thursday to estimate status for practice Monday, but there is no physical practice session. White's status will be a lot more clear Tuesday and into Wednesday. Stay tuned.

Atlanta Falcons OT Jake Matthews (ankle) is expected to play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, head coach Mike Smith said Monday, Sept. 15. Matthews was listed as a limited participant in practice, and he is expected to be a full participant Tuesday, Sept. 16. If he plays, OT Gabe Carimi would shift back to right tackle, where he was rotating with OT Lamar Holmes.

Fantasy Tip: White came in with a knee injury, but was able to make it through the entire game without any setbacks. FantasyScore owners can feel confident using him in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: White looks like he is good to go in Week 2, and has a FantasyScore price of $5,900 (11.80% of cap). The Falcons may find it hard to score against the Bengals in Week 2, so there may be better options on the board for you, especially if White is not fully healthy.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said the team's goal coming into the year was to put up 30 points per game. Since 2004, 12 teams have averaged 30 or more points per game, and those teams combined for a record of 155-37. Only one of those teams, the 2004 Kansas City Chiefs, failed to make the playoffs. The Falcons' highest average with QB Matt Ryan was 26.2 in 2002, when they finished 13-3.
Fantasy Tip: The Falcons could find it hard to top 30 points against a nasty Cincinnati Bengals defense in Week 2, especially without tackle Jake Matthews. Temper your expectations a bit for Ryan and company after they put up points in bunches against the New Orleans Saints.
