Falcons | Matt Ryan still confident in offense

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 15:42:19 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan admitted Tuesday, April 19, that he took too long at times to process offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme in 2015. Ryan said he is excited to have Shanahan back for another season. "As you're in a system more, you start focusing on the things that are important," Ryan said. "What you're going against defensively, what your keys are in protection, what you're looking for from a coverage standpoint."

Ryan also said that he thought all the players involved in a recent passing camp felt more comfortable with the offense, adding that he could tell early on that they were a lot further along than at certain points midway through last season.

Fantasy Tip: There was definitely a bit of a learning curve for Ryan and the Falcons last season, maybe save for Julio Jones, who can do anything in any offense. As for Ryan, he remains out of QB1 territory despite a season of Shanahan's offense under his belt.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman among breakout candidates

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 18:15:54 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman, WR Justin Hardy, LB, Vic Beasley, DT Grady Jarrett, CB Jalen Collins and FS Robenson Therezie are the six players head coach Dan Quinn is counting on to elevate their games in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman and Hardy should both be on the fantasy radar. Coleman is a Devonta Freeman injury away from being a potential RB1, and Hardy could be a sneaky option in PPR formats.
