Falcons | Owner confident in Devonta Freeman deal

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:09:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman's potential long-term deal is likely to happen soon, according to owner Arthur Blank. "He's the kind of person you want to have on your team for all the right reasons," Blank said of Freeman. It has been reported that Freeman's deal could be done before training camp commences.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman has turned into one of the better running backs in the NFL even with Tevin Coleman taking away plenty of playing time. Deal or no deal, Freeman is easily an RB1 with PPR scoring and even in standard leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman not worried about contract

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 13:38:21 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman said he is not focusing on his contract situation but is optimistic that he will receive a contract extension at some point.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is entering the final year of his contract, so the Falcons could look to sign him to a contract extension over the next few months. Freeman is one of the better running backs in the NFL in 2016 and will continue to see a majority of the snaps at running back. He should be considered a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Taylor Gabriel not practicing either

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 14:02:16 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (undisclosed) did not participate in minicamp Tuesday, June 13, as he deals with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't appear to be too serious of an ailment for Gabriel, who was an unsung performer for the Falcons in 2016. Gabriel is mainly a deep threat who will only have real value when Julio Jones is unable to play.

Falcons | Julio Jones not part of minicamp

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:56:30 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is not participating in minicamp as he continues to recover from offseason foot surgery. Jones does expect to be ready for training camp in late July.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons will take it easy with their star receiver this offseason after missing two games last year. He may not play much in the preseason, but he should still be one of the first wide receivers taken in fantasy drafts.
