Falcons | Strong outing for T.J. Yates

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 00:23:23 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB T.J. Yates threw for two touchdowns and 243 yards in his team's 24-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Yates had thrown 39 percent of his passes for completions prior to this outing, but this was a strong performance and could vault him into the No. 2 slot behind Matt Ryan. Yates carries little fantasy value unless he makes the roster and Ryan gets hurt, so watch the next couple days to see if he survives roster cuts.

Falcons | Big game for Devonta Freeman

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 20:07:16 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman had 12 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown and five catches for 45 yards during the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Steven Jackson is expected to play in Week 1, but if his hamstring injury flares up, Freeman could be in line for a major role. Freeman is better equipped to run between the tackles the fellow back Jacquizz Rodgers, and he can also catch the ball out of the backfield. As injury prone as Jackson has been recently, Freeman could be worth a late-round flier.

Falcons | Steven Jackson to play?

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:58:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could play a few snaps tonight to test out his injured hamstring, according to ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is slated to play Week 1, so he probably won't see much action, if any. Jackson's health is already a concern heading into the season. He should be considered a flex option.

Falcons | Nickel role still unsettled

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 20:20:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons CBs Robert McClain, Javier Arenas and Josh Wilson will continue their battle for the nickelback role during the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Mike Smith. "I don't really want to talk about who's going to get the first look, but all three are going to play," Smith said. "I don't think you can read into who gets the first snaps. It's going to be a matter of guys getting an opportunity to go out there and compete. We will put them in much quicker in the ball game then we have in the previous weeks. They won't take a whole half. It will be rotations by series."

Falcons | Want power ground game

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 19:30:41 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers was stopped on a fourth-and-1 run during the team's third preseason game, and heading into the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, head coach Mike Smith said he wants to emphasize being able to run the ball effectively in obvious running situations.

Fantasy Tip: If Smith sticks to that plan during the year, it could lead to more chances for Steven Jackson around the goal line. Jackson is a risky pick because of all his recent injury issues, but if healthy, he will have a big role in the offense and RB2 upside. Consider scooping him up as a third running back if the injury concerns cause him to slide in your draft.
