  Falcons | Julio Jones should play in Week 4    Fri Sep 30, 07:18 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Footballguys view: This is a good trend for Jones, who had been piling up leg injuries and missing practice last week. Jones has a minus matchup against Carolina, but he is still a must play.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu back at practice    Thu Sep 29, 09:44 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Sept. 29.

Footballguys view: Sanu should be back in the lineup but is no better than a WR 5 or so. If you're looking for bye week help, there are better options.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan fully practices     Thu Sep 29, 09:40 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Footballguys view: It's not a great matchup, so Ryan looks a lot shakier than he did last week. Start him as a QB2 and hang on through what could be a roller coaster.

  Falcons | Julio Jones limited     Thu Sep 29, 09:31 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was a limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Footballguys view: Jones will be fine this week and bounce back from an awful game last week on what should have been a career day. Consider Jones a WR1 as usual.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman under the weather    Thu Sep 29, 09:27 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (illness) missed practice Thursday, Sept. 29, because of an illness.

Footballguys view: Watch this space for news on whether is a go on Friday, because if he isn't, you might bump Tevin Coleman up to full RB2 status. As it is, Freeman may get more carries but Coleman gets goal line work, so they are both RB2/RB3 options at best.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman limited Thursday    Thu Sep 29, 09:23 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Footballguys view: Devonta Freeman and Coleman will split carries, which will hurt both players. Freeman is a little better in terms of carries while Coleman seems to be getting the goal line nods. Both are RB2/RB3 options against Carolina.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan takes part in practice    Wed Sep 28, 04:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: The thumb injury is not a big deal, and the Falcons need Ryan in a big way in Week 4. They get a huge test on the road against the Carolina Panthers this week. Ryan is a low-end QB1 in this matchup.

  Falcons | Julio Jones listed as limited    Wed Sep 28, 04:25 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Jones just didn't look right against the Saints on Monday night. This week, consider Jones more of a low-end WR1 until we see him look like his old self. He'll be facing an inexperienced secondary against the Panthers on Sunday.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman limited Wednesday    Wed Sep 28, 04:22 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Coleman was a beast for his fantasy owners in Week 3 as he scored three TDs versus the Saints. It's a much tougher opponent this week as the Falcons travel to take on the Panthers. Consider Coleman (and his backfield mate Devonta Freeman) both low-end RB2 with upside.

  Falcons | Atlanta RBs snap distribution    Tue Sep 27, 11:24 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman was on the field for 38 of the team's 64 offensive snaps in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints. RB Tevin Coleman logged 27 snaps.

Footballguys view: The snaps are going to continue getting split almost down the middle for these two. Coleman got into the end zone three times against a weak Saints defense on Monday night. Perhaps next time out it will be Freeman as the most fantasy relevant back of the two. It's a split fantasy owners will have to navigate carefully with both backs cutting into the others value. They're both low-end RB2 with upside, but the potential for a RB1 week is always there for one of them.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu expected to play Week 4    Tue Sep 27, 01:55 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is likely to play in Week 4 versus the Carolina Panthers after a shoulder injury kept him out of the second half in the team's Week 3 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Watch Sanu's progress during the week of practice. The team has a short week coming off their road victory over the Saints on Monday night. They face the Panthers at home in Week 4.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan says thumb is fine    Tue Sep 27, 10:41 AM

Footballguys view: Ryan was able to play through this injury on Monday night against the Saints. Watch the injury report on Friday just to make sure that Ryan has participated in practice. He may be limited when practice opens up this week on Wednesday.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

  Falcons | Atlanta won't force the ball to Julio Jones    Sat Sep 24, 01:04 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon.

Footballguys view: Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. Jones is still a WR1 for fantasy owners.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Sanu should be fine for Monday night in one of the highest projected scoring games of the week. The Saints inexperience in the secondary and lack of pass rush should give the Falcons passing game a great chance to keep up their torrid early season pace.

Footballguys view: The Falcons have reassured us that this injury is not serious and that Jones will play Monday night against the Saints. He has played and produced well through minor leg injuries in the past, so as long as he's active, Jones has to be considered an elite WR1 this week.
