Falcons | Matt Bryant sits Wednesday

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:33:09 -0700

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) was not able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant missed practice last week, too, but still managed to take the field. Keep tabs on his progress throughout the week, but odds are he'll be starting barring any setbacks.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu practiced on limited basis

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:30:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) was able to put in a limited practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu is on the mend and on his way to suiting up in Week 7 after being sidelined last week. The Falcons need their No. 2 wide receiver in what is shaping up to be a barn burner with the New England Patriots. Sanu's status needs to be monitored in the coming days, but if he's healthy enough to play then he warrants at least flex consideration.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu to practice this week?

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 21:33:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said he is "hopeful" that WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) will return to practice this week. Sanu has been out since injuring his hamstring in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of his 85-yard performance in Week 2 Sanu has been pretty quiet this season, so odds are you'll want to see him make a positive contribution before considering him for your lineup, even against a vulnerable Patriots secondary.

Falcons | Atlanta not content with Julio Jones' touches

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 13:36:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will be more involved in the offense if head coach Dan Quinn has his way. Quinn said he was not satisfied with how often Jones was seeing the ball, adding that more offensive plays in general will help that cause.

Fantasy Tip: There has been a plethora of fantasy disappointments in 2017, one of them being Jones. The star receiver has amassed just 25 catches for 367 yards and -- worst of all -- no touchdowns. Needless to say, though, he needs to remain a fixture in fantasy lineups.

Falcons | Deion Jones busy in home loss

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:03:24 -0700

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel targeted eight times

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:02:53 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel managed four receptions for 39 yards on eight targets in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel was busy in the pass game with Mohamed Sanu on the shelf, although it was Marvin Hall with the scoring reception rather than Gabriel. He is worth a look as a WR4 or flex option in deeper PPR formats in Week 7 at New England if Sanu remains sidelined.

Falcons | Marvin Hall scores 40-yard TD

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:02:18 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Marvin Hall posted a 40-yard touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Someone had to step up with Mohamed Sanu on the shelf and it was Hall making the big play. Despite the touchdown score he shouldn't be a blip on most people's fantasy radar heading into Week 7.

Falcons | Tevin Coleman gets into end zone

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:01:50 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 32 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added one catch for four yards on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman visited the end zone for the first time since Week 2 against the Packers. He continues to receive about 10-13 total touches per week and remains a decent RB3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the New England Patriots.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman runs for 68 yards

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:01:18 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed nine times for 68 yards in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two receptions for 11 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: It was Freeman's first game of the season without a touchdown run, as he has managed five scores in his first four outings. He'll look to get back into the end zone in Week 7 in a Super Bowl rematch with the New England Patriots on the road.

Falcons | Just one TD strike for Matt Ryan

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 13:57:21 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 35 pass attempts for 248 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Another week, another game Ryan and Julio Jones have failed to combine for a touchdown. The combination has yet to hook up for a score this season. Matty Ice should have a big game on Sunday night in Week 7 in a Super Bowl rematch with the New England Patriots and their leaky pass defense.
