Falcons | Devonta Freeman sound in win

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 16:23:24 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 14 times for 42 yards and caught four balls for another 42 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman's versatility makes him an every-week start for conventional fantasy purposes. He figures to once again share reps in 2017 with Tevin Coleman and is a reasonable RB1 target for PPR formats.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu contributes in win

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 16:04:54 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu landed five passes for 52 yards and scored a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu proved to be a competent complement to Julio Jones this season and has WR4 appeal in deep drafts for 2017 leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones destroys Packers

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 15:53:05 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot, toe) caught nine passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Jan. 22, in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. Jones had entered the game as a question mark after being a limited participant in practice Friday, Jan. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Despite playing with two torn toe ligaments and one in his foot, Jones looked just fine in all facets of the game. He is a lock for high draft placement in 2017 fantasy drafts after another strong season.

Falcons | Matt Ryan dominant in win

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 15:33:33 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 27-for-38 passing for 392 yards and four touchdown passes in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Green Bay Packers. He did not throw an interception, and Ryan added a rushing score. His 392 yards rank second all-time in an NFL conference game, behind Ryan's 2012 performance of 396 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has vaulted himself into the upper-echelon QB1 conversation for 2017 drafters, but it appears as though he will need to learn a new offense if coordinator Kyle Shanahan indeed takes the San Francisco 49ers' head coach position.

Falcons | Julio Jones playing with multiple injuries

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 13:03:29 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot, toe) is playing with two injured ligaments in his toe and another injured ligament in his foot.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been on the injury list for most of the second half of the season but has not missed much time because of the injury. Jones is one of the best receivers in the NFL and will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season.

Falcons | Atlanta could extend Matt Ryan's deal

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 06:34:37 -0800

The Atlanta Falcons are expected to discuss a contract extension with QB Matt Ryan during the offseason, even though he still has two years remaining on his current contract, according to multiple sources. A potential extension could make him the highest-paid player in the league, surpassing Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's deal.

Fantasy Tip: The 31-year-old Ryan posted career highs in passing yards (4,944) and touchdowns (38) during the 2016 season, while throwing just seven interceptions in 534 attempts. He is one of the leading candidates for the NFL MVP award and should be viewed as an elite option in all fantasy formats.

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel not on injury report

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 13:14:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel should be able to handle his normal workload against the Green Bay Packers even though he has dealt with the injury over the last few weeks. He should see a decent amount of targets during the game and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones listed as limited

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 13:12:48 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was officially limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, but is not listed on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be able to play against the Green Bay Packers and should be a big part of the team's passing game. He has posted at least 60 yards in each of the last four games and has a touchdown in back-to-back games. Owners in all leagues should consider Jones as a No. 1 receiver.

Falcons | Julio Jones logs full practice

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 10:45:46 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) "looked good" while getting in a full practice Friday, Jan. 20, and will not have any limitations in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Great news for Jones, the Falcons and any owners planning on using him in fantasy this weekend. Jones is expected to draw Ladarius Gunter in shadow coverage after the Packers' cornerback was used in the same fashion against Odell Beckham Jr. and Dez Bryant the past two weeks. Bryant dusted Gunter for nine catches, 132 yards and two touchdowns last week, so Jones could easily be the best fantasy play of the week.

Falcons | Atlanta's Thursday injury report

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel still limited

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 14:05:59 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 19.

Fantasy Tip: That's back-to-back limited practices for Gabriel so far this week. He should be able to play as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Julio Jones hasn't practiced yet this week, so Gabriel could see more action if Jones doesn't play or is limited at all (expect him to play). Gabriel is not a bad cheap play in daily contests in what has the makings of a shootout with the Green Bay Packers.
