Falcons | Atlanta still looking to sign Julio Jones

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:48:42 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is still talking with the team about a contract extension, but the talks stalled significantly last week, according to sources. Owner Arthur Blank said he is still optimistic that the two sides can reach an agreement. Jones is willing to play for $10.176 million this season if no agreement is reached.

Fantasy Tip: Jones likely will receive an extension at some point, but it may come during the season. Jones is one of the top fantasy receivers available this season and should be selected in one of the first two rounds of most drafts.

Falcons | Roddy White to have elbow surgery

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 16:23:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (elbow) will undergo a minor surgical procedure on his right elbow but is expected to be ready for the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: White is no longer an elite receiver, but he should still make a strong WR3 playing across from Julio Jones, and he could creep into WR2 territory in points-per-reception formats.

Falcons | Roddy White ruled out

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:33:42 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (elbow) will not play in the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 21, because of an elbow injury. White's injury is not consider serious.

Fantasy Tip: White should be fine moving forward and could play in the next preseason game. White should see plenty of targets this season and could be a middle-round option in most leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman sitting

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:51:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) and RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will not play in the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The team has not named a starting running back at this point, so Freeman and Coleman will use the rest of the preseason to compete for the starting job. Both running backs should see solid playing time this season. Owners may consider selecting the starting running back in the middle rounds with the other back being a late-round option.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman could sit Friday

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 18:54:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) is questionable to play in a preseason game against the New York Jets Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should split carries with Tevin Coleman this year, and while Coleman has the higher long-term upside, Freeman is still worth drafting as a low-end RB3.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman questionable Friday

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 18:49:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is questionable to play in a preseason game against the New York Jets Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Expect the Falcons to be cautious with the rookie, and while Freeman will probably split carries with Devonta Freeman this year, he has the higher ceiling of the two and is worth drafting RB3.
