Falcons | Atlanta not ready to name starting LG

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:56:24 -0700

Atlanta Falcons OGs Ben Garland and Wes Schweitzer have each received a start at right guard this preseason, and head coach Dan Quinn said he needs a few days before he is ready to name a starter at the position because the competition is still close.

Falcons | Matt Ryan sharp in brief stint

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 18:33:43 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan led a touchdown drive in his only series against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 20, completing four of his six passes for 57 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Even without Julio Jones or Devonta Freeman playing, Ryan looked sharp. The Falcons should have one of the top offenses in the NFL again this season, and Ryan can be trusted as a QB1.

Falcons | Wes Schweitzer to start Sunday

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 07:29:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons OG Wes Schweitzer will start at right guard against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Aug. 20, according to head coach Dan Quinn. However, OG Ben Garland is expected to see the same number of snaps in the game and neither player appears to have a clear edge in the competition for the starting job.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman will rest against Steelers

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 12:12:20 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) will not play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Aug. 20. Head coach Dan Quinn said Freeman's condition is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: There have been no indications Freeman will much more time. Since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension announcement, there has been some debate as to what running back should be the next one off the board after David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell. Freeman is as good a candidate as any, as he is the only back over the last two seasons to rush for over 1,000 yards and score at least 10 touchdowns both years. The fact he adds 50-plus receptions makes him a rock-solid RB1.

Falcons | Julio Jones to sit Saturday

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 12:00:32 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will not play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Jones is being put in bubble wrap in August for all intents and purposes, but he has been participating in practice on a regular basis and the Falcons have been clear they expect to use him more often in the red zone this season. Jones also has nothing left to prove to the Falcons either, so making sure he is 100 percent for Week 1 is a prudent move. He is well worth a top-five overall pick in fantasy drafts.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 18:50:47 -0700

Falcons | Devonta Freeman could return soon

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:04:53 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is expected to go through the concussion protocol over the next few days and could return to practice soon, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons should take things slow with Freeman and make sure he is ready for Week 1. Freeman recorded 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and will continue to be a focal point on offense in 2017. He should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman in concussion protocol

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 08:33:50 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) was out of practice Monday, Aug. 14, and he is in the concussion protocol. He has been ruled out for the second preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: He left practice Sunday due to heat-related symptoms, but it appears the situation was worse than expected. He still has plenty of time to be ready for the season, and he remains a high-end RB1 in fantasy.

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 17:53:24 -0700

Falcons | Devonta Freeman in class of his own

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 21:33:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is the only running back to have logged at least 1,000 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground in each of the past two seasons.

Fantasy Tip: After a rookie season to forget in 2014, Freeman broke out in a big way in his sophomore campaign and hasn't looked back, proving to be one of the top running backs in all of fantasy. Although Atlanta has a very capable No. 2 running back in Tevin Coleman, Freeman is still someone worth building your fantasy ground game around, and should be targeted early for plenty of reasons.
