Falcons | Joplo Bartu avoids suspension

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:14:02 -0700

Atlanta Falcons LB Joplo Bartu was fined $50,000 for an alcohol-related offense after a two-game suspension was rescinded, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Bartu started 27 games over the last two seasons, but he will have to fight for a roster spot in 2015 due to the Falcons' offseason additions.

Falcons | Justin Hardy to be No. 3 WR for ATL?

Thu, 21 May 2015 15:50:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy is projected as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver behind WRs Julio Jones and Roddy White, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Fantasy Tip: This, of course, remains to be seen, but Hardy could certainly surpass the likes of Devin Hester, Leonard Hankerson, Drew Davis and the like. Even if he does win the No. 3 receiver job, he shouldn't be considered more than WR5.

Falcons | Antone Smith progresses to running

Thu, 21 May 2015 05:33:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Antone Smith (leg) has began running during his rehabilitation from a fractured right leg he suffered Nov. 16, 2014. Smith said he is almost running full force. It is unlikely he will be cleared for the beginning of organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, though.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was a weekly big-play threat in 2014, as he scored five touchdowns on just 36 touches before suffering his season-ending injury. When healthy, he'll compete for touches with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but with a new coaching regime in Atlanta, Smith may have difficulty carving out the role he had last season in 2015. Freeman and Coleman are mid-round selections in drafts, with Freeman receiving the edge in PPR formats. Smith is a late-round flier in cavernous leagues, and he is likely best left to the waiver wire in the majority of formats.

Falcons | Levine Toilolo to start at TE for ATL?

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:48:15 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Levine Toilolo is the projected starting tight end this season. TEs Jacob Tamme, Tony Moeaki and Mickey Shuler will also be in the mix at the position this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Toilolo was hardly involved in the Falcons' offense last season, even with Tony Gonzalez retired. Toilolo could begin as starter, but the situation could turn into a tight end by committee. None of their current tight ends are worth starting other than as a bye-week replacement.

Falcons | William Moore hopes to be cleared soon

Mon, 18 May 2015 19:39:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons SS William Moore (shoulder) said he hopes to receive clearance to practice in a few weeks. He said he is still rehabbing his surgically repaired shoulder but his body feels good. Moore is expected to be one of the starting safeties in 2015 if he is healthy.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman signs with Atlanta

Tue, 12 May 2015 13:33:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman signed a four-year contract Tuesday, May 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman has already been rumored as a favorite to start in Atlanta ahead of second-year RB Devonta Freeman, though by a slim margin. The Falcons could implement a running back by committee with Coleman and Freeman, as the majority of NFL teams have done in recent years. We'll see how this plays out during the offseason and in preseason.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman a favorite to start?

Tue, 05 May 2015 11:31:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman could see the majority of work in the Falcons' backfield in 2015, with Devonta Freeman closely behind him, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Fantasy Tip: Ledbetter has Coleman and Freeman listed as 1A and 1B, respectively, so it could very well be the typical running back by committee in Atlanta. As it stands, both are probably closer to low-end RB3 territory.
