  Falcons | Steven Jackson out with illness    Thu Nov 20, 02:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (illness) was out of practice with an illness Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: We'll see if he plays now, though it's a few days before the Falcons need to decide. At best he's a high-end RB3, so replacing him shouldn't be a hardship.

  Falcons | Harry Douglas on the field    Thu Nov 20, 12:34 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after missing practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: Unlike Julio Jones, we don't expect much from Douglas, who we see as a WR6 at best and would keep out of lineups.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson sitting out    Thu Nov 20, 12:33 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Jackson has been barely productive this season. Despite that, he should be in the range of a low-end RB2 or a high-end RB3 this week, even against a tough Cleveland defense.

  Falcons | Julio Jones not practicing    Thu Nov 20, 12:03 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. It appears like Jones will still be ready for the team's Week 12 game.

Footballguys view: Jones' status isn't a concern for us, nor should it be for you. We've got him as a top 10 WR1 and he should put up very good points against the Cleveland Browns.

  Falcons | Atlanta expects heavy dose of Josh Gordon    Tue Nov 18, 12:32 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will make his season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, and Falcons head coach Mike Smith doesn't expect the Browns to ease their best receiver back in. 'Absolutely I do,' Smith said. 'They've stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible. And he's a game-changer. He's a guy that with the ball in his hands, he can make plays. So we're anticipating that we're going to get a full dose of him this week.' Gordon had a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2014. Smith said they aren't afraid to put CB Desmond Trufant, their best cornerback, in a shadow role on Gordon.

Footballguys view: The Falcons should be expecting a lot of Gordon in Week 12. Fantasy owners can look at him with confidence this week. Gordon was a fantasy star in 2013 with guys like Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden throwing him the ball.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman to step into bigger role    Mon Nov 17, 04:06 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is likely to step into a bigger backfield role with RB Antone Smith (leg) out for the rest of the season. RB Steven Jackson remains the starter, however.

Footballguys view: Freeman has been seeing more action as of late. We love the rookie's natural talent, but as a part-time player behind Jackson there's not a lot of fantasy value there.

  Falcons | Antone Smith out for the year    Mon Nov 17, 02:39 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Antone Smith (leg) is out for the remainder of the season with a broken leg, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Footballguys view: It was fun while it lasted. Smith was a hotter fantasy play earlier this year as he seemed to be breaking off big plays regularly on a part-time basis. This injury negatively impacts his dynasty value as well. With Smith on the sidelines, we could see a larger role for rookie Devonta Freeman.

  Falcons | Roddy White reaches milestone    Sun Nov 16, 06:10 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White posted eight receptions for a team-high 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers. In the game, he went over 10,000 yards for his career.

Footballguys view: White is doing well as the Falcons offensive line isn't really giving Matt Ryan enough time to throw longer balls to Julio Jones because they take more time to develop. He's looking like a very solid WR2 play against Cleveland next week.

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson carried 16 times for a season-high 81 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also added two receptions for 14 yards.

Footballguys view: When the Falcons are competitive, Jackson is a low-end RB2 with a low ceiling, but high floor for voiume. You could do worse than playing Jackson against the Panthers next week.

Atlanta Falcons RB Antone Smith (neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Footballguys view: We're waiting to see if the long touchdown specialist can get more touches in the offense, but he might not even be worth even a desperation play at this point.

  Falcons | Harry Douglas' status in question    Fri Nov 7, 02:45 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Footballguys view: Douglas's full participation is a good sign, and he would be facing a weak Tampa secondary, but he would still only be a desperation play if he can go.

  Falcons | Antone Smith limited during practice    Thu Nov 6, 03:19 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Antone Smith (neck) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: Smith was a sneaky play for five of the first six weeks because he scored touchdowns, but has not done that the last two weeks and so became a non-factor. His streaky time has come and gone, and he shouldn't be in your lineup unless he's a RB4 or desperation flex play.

  Falcons | Harry Douglas limited    Thu Nov 6, 03:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: Douglas and Matt Ryan hooked up three times last week and could see more targets against Tampa Bay this week. That said, he's a hail mary play and is no better than a WR5.

  Falcons | Julio Jones 100 percent    Thu Nov 6, 02:18 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) said he is 100 percent healthy after coming off his ankle injury.

Footballguys view: We're happy to hear this, but had him slotted as one of the top fantasy wide receivers this week before, so this just makes it even better. Atlanta lit Tampa Bay up in Week 3 and Jones compiled 161 yards and two touchdowns on nine catches. We're not sure what to expect from Atlanta this week--they really have discovered new ways to be bad every game--but Jones should put up great numbers regardless.
