Thu, 03 Sep 2015 06:38:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons CB Desmond Trufant said head coach Dan Quinn instructed him to work on his hands this offseason because he could have had nine interceptions last year. Trufant worked with the JUGS machine in the offseason.

Falcons | Roddy White may work out next week

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:53:10 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (elbow) is expected to participate in some activities next week with a pad on his surgically repaired elbow.

Fantasy Tip: White's status for Week 1 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to check on his practice participation. White should have a solid role in the passing game this season and could be a middle-round option in most leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman expected to sit

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:54:50 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) is expected to miss the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, but has not been ruled out at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman has made progress in his recovery but has missed the first three preseason games. Freeman may still have a chance for the starting job, but he likely will share carries with Tevin Coleman even if he does not start. He could be a middle- to late-round option in drafts depending on his role.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman probably won't play

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:07:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Miami Dolphins Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Tevin Coleman will start at running back in Freeman's absence. This is his time to prove he deserves to start in the regular season over Freeman. Coleman should be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3. Freeman is in RB3 to RB4 territory in PPR leagues.
