  Falcons | Tevin Coleman sits again    Fri Dec 15, 05:33 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 15.

Footballguys view: Coleman's game is Monday night but it still looks like he's not going to be ready in time. Devonta Freeman is looking like a strong RB1 this week if he can dominate the touches in Atlanta's backfield.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu logs limited practice    Thu Dec 14, 06:36 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Sanu went HAM on New Orleans last week, and we think he could have a decent game this week against Tampa Bay. He is unlikely to replicate the touchdown, but he should produce enough for a WR3 start.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman sits out practice Thursday    Thu Dec 14, 06:35 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Considering he's still in the protocol, it's hard to feel confident he will be active on Sunday. We think he will be a decent RB3 or flex option if he was though. Tomorrow should put an answer to that question though. No practice, probably no play.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman still in the protocol    Thu Dec 14, 12:43 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Thursday, Dec. 14, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Footballguys view: If he doesn't practice Friday, Coleman is unlikely to play. In reality, as he's still in the protocol, it's hard to feel confident he will be active on Sunday. If he is though, we think he will be a decent RB3 or flex option.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman not at practice Tuesday    Tue Dec 12, 01:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) was not at the open portion of practice Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: Coleman is in the league's concussion protocol right now. He'll have to practice later in the week in order to be cleared. The Falcons have an extra day of rest for Coleman if need be as they travel to play the Buccaneers on Monday night in Week 15.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu scores on TNF    Fri Dec 8, 12:38 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu tallied six receptions (on eight targets), 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's three-point win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Sanu was steady as always and posted one of his best games of the season. He has restored some confidence as a WR3/Flex option heading into a good matchup at Tampa next week.

  Falcons | Julio Jones almost cracks 100    Fri Dec 8, 12:25 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught five passes for 98 yards against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Dec. 7. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.

Footballguys view: Jones got free for a long gain in the first half to key his night against Marshon Lattimore. He's trending back up after Xavier Rhodes shut him down in Week 13.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan struggles in win    Fri Dec 8, 12:10 AM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 15 of his 27 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during the team's Week 14 victory over the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Ryan isn't a QB1 heading into a matchup with Tampa. He is mired in his worst fantasy season since his rookie year, but it's not all his fault, as the majority of his interceptions have been drops by one of his receivers. It's just not clicking for this pass offense, and we can't count on Ryan even in a good Week 15 matchup.

  Falcons | Nine carries for Tevin Coleman    Thu Dec 7, 11:58 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 32 yards in a 20-17 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: Coleman took a back seat to Devonta Freeman in this one. He'll only be a what the heck flex at Tampa next week.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman carries the load    Thu Dec 7, 11:52 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 24 times for 91 yards and a touchdown in a 20-17 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: The Falcons committed to Freeman as strongly as they have all year, and he was able to keep the offense on schedule. He's a must start at Tampa next week.

  Falcons | Julio Jones held in check    Sun Dec 3, 05:00 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught two passes for 24 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Xavier Rhodes makes Jones look mortal the week after he singled-handedly won weeks for fantasy owners. Marshon Lattimore wasn't able to go this week, so asking him to be ready on Thursday is no sure thing. If he's out, Jones' job gets a lot easier.

  Falcons | Three catches for Mohamed Sanu    Sun Dec 3, 04:55 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught 43 yards on three catches against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Sanu was actually the leading receiver for the Falcons on a very slow day in the passing game. He still could give us WR3/Flex value on Thursday against the Saints.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman posts 49 total yards    Sun Dec 3, 04:50 PM

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman has solid outing    Sun Dec 3, 04:45 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed for 74 yards on 12 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Freeman looked good, but the Falcons never committed to him as the primary means of moving the offense. They are in an urgent situation to preserve playoff standing next week against New Orleans on Thursday, and Freeman will be a boom/bust RB2.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan posts 173 yards    Sun Dec 3, 04:40 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 16-for-29 for 173 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Ryan was thwarted at every turn by a talented and physical Vikings defense. He'll have the Saints on Thursday night, but Ryan isn't a fantasy QB1 any more.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman won't be limited    Thu Nov 30, 12:48 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman won't be limited in Week 13 as he returns from a concussion, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Footballguys view: Freeman has a tough row to hoe this week, as the Vikings are a good defense. We still expect him to see significant carries, though Tevin Coleman will still be in the mix. Expect RB2 numbers from Freeman this week and you should be OK.
