  Falcons | Calvin Ridley listed as limited    Mon Nov 19, 06:03 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (thigh) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: Ridley and the Falcons offense has been so up and down this year. Against the Saints on Thanksgiving, Ridley would be worth starting as a deep flex option in PPR leagues.

  Falcons | Calvin Ridley held in check    Sun Nov 18, 05:22 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught three passes for 32 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Ridley is just end of the bench depth to roll out in a good matchup at this point. The Saints defense looks like that on paper, but he's still not a strong play on Thanksgiving.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught six passes for 118 yards and one touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Jones is in top form when fantasy teams need him the most. He'll face a lot of Marshon Lattimore on Thanksgiving, but can't be benched.

  Falcons | Ito Smith not a big factor    Sun Nov 18, 05:10 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Ito Smith rushed for 10 yards on six carries against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. He also caught two passes for 12 yards during the game.

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 58 yards on eight carries against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. He also caught three passes for 27 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Coleman's ceiling game against Washington feels like a distant memory now. He's just a flex play heading into New Orleans on Thanksgiving.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 291 yards    Sun Nov 18, 04:56 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 24-for-34 for 291 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Ryan had some issues against the Cowboys pressure and the offense settled for too many field goals in this one. The Falcons are not an elite offense and Ryan is not an elite fantasy quarterback. He'll face a hostile Thanksgiving crowd and defense in New Orleans.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

  Falcons | Calvin Ridley held to 37 yards    Sun Nov 11, 04:34 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught three passes for 37 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Ridley only had one impact play in this one and took a backseat to Austin Hooper and Mohamed as a secondary pass catcher. His high early season ceiling isn't in view right now. He's a what the heck flex against the Cowboys next week.

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 10 passes for 56 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Hooper has had some ups and downs as a streamer this year, but his ups have justified enduring the downs. He'll be in consideration as a starter against Dallas next week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught seven passes for 107 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.

  Falcons | Ito Smith held in check    Sun Nov 11, 04:14 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Ito Smith rushed for 11 yards on four carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10. He also caught four passes for 15 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: The Falcons running game was a non-factor after a huge performance against Washington last week. Smith is more handcuff to Tevin Coleman than a viable flex play if this is how Atlanta is going to play. Dallas is up next week in a neutral at best matchup.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman has decent outing    Sun Nov 11, 04:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 44 yards on 11 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10. He also caught three passes for 19 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Coleman went cold after catching fire last week. He reminded us that his less than feature back load and uneven at times surrounding offense makes him more flex than RB2. He's not an automatic start against Dallas next week.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 330 yards    Sun Nov 11, 03:58 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 38-for-52 for 330 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Ryan and the Falcons offense had some red zone woes and wasn't as effective as hoped at Cleveland. Ryan's fantasy line was still solid, but could have been better. The Falcons season is on life support with Dallas coming.

CB Robert Alford (ankle), S Damontae Kazee (ankle), C Alex Mack (back) and WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) were full participants Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Sanu is a safe WR3/Flex play with a low ceiling, but the chance for a big play or two against a very thin Browns secondary.
