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.

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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Jones recorded 67 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional round game and should see plenty of targets against the Green Bay Packers this week. Jones is a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues even though he is dealing with the toe injury.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons were without Tevin Coleman, and it was a close game, but the team kind of gave up on the run. Without those two touchdowns, it would have been a poor fantasy output for Freeman. The Packers have allowed just 11.1 fantasy points per game to RBs in the playoffs and no touchdowns. Freeman has a tough matchup in the NFC title game, but he'll be in the second tier of RBs in playoff pools.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel was able to play in the Divisional round game and should be ready for the NFC Championship game this week. He has been targeted at least six times in four of the last five games and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The all-world receiver should be in fantasy lineups if he dresses, which is the expectation. Green Bay's secondary is abysmal, so even a hobbled Jones should find some room.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan is a big reason why the Falcons are in the NFC title game. He's a top MVP candidate coming off a career season. Regression should be expected next season after such a marvelous campaign, but Ryan is still a QB1 consideration.

Atlanta Falcons DE Adrian Clayborn (biceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Jan. 17. DT Joe Vellano was promoted to the active roster, while free-agent DT Jimmy Staten (Bears) was signed to the practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: Jones departed in the fourth quarter of the Falcons' Divisional Round victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, but it was quickly reported he could have remained in the game had Atlanta not been ahead by multiple scores. Along with Antonio Brown and Julian Edelman, Jones should be in the running for top fantasy receiver honors next weekend when he gets a crack at the Green Bay Packers' shorthanded secondary.
