Falcons | Ankle to keep Julio Jones out of Pro Bowl

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 12:09:50 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will not participate in the 2018 Pro Bowl due to his nagging ankle injury. Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams will take Jones' place in the Pro Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is dealing with other issues, too, so it makes sense that the Falcons would want to rest him instead of aggravating something in a game that doesn't count for anything. As long as Jones is fully healthy, he should be one of the first few wide receivers selected in fantasy drafts next season.

Falcons | Surgery possible for Devonta Freeman?

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 19:25:16 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) said he played the end of the season with a sprained medial collateral ligament and a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, but he is hoping to avoid offseason surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should enter 2018 as the lead back for Atlanta, but with Tevin Coleman also in the mix, Freeman should be viewed as a high-end RB2.

Falcons | Austin Hooper held to one catch

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:18:43 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught one pass for three yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel quiet in playoff game

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:12:39 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught two passes for four yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel saw a drop in his production this season compared to last season and finished with 378 yards and one touchdown. Owners on all leagues probably can avoid Gabriel in drafts in 2018.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu catches three passes

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:09:23 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Sanu was a solid contributor in the team's passing game this season and finished the regular season with 703 yards and five touchdowns. He should be one of the starting receivers again in 2018 and can be a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:06:19 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught nine passes for 101 yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been one of the best receivers in the NFL over the last several seasons even though he has dealt with some injuries. He will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season and could be a first-round pick.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman has solid outing

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:05:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 79 yards on 10 carries in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13. He also caught one pass for 14 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman receives a lot of touches even though he is not the starter and should have a similar role next season. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy drafts in 2018 and could be a weekly flex option.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman more involved as receiver

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 16:56:03 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman caught five passes for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13. He also rushed for seven yards on 10 carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman finished the regular season with 865 yards and seven touchdowns this season and likely will remain the team's starting running back in 2018. He also has value in point-per-reception leagues since he recorded 36 catches and 317 receiving yards. He can be at least a No. 2 running back for fantasy owners next season.
