Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is expected to be hired by the Atlanta Falcons for their head coaching position after the Super Bowl. Quinn and new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan planned to be a package deal.

Updating a previous report, former New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has lined up an interview for next week with the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in super super deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring Reedy here. He's a quick/fast receiver who can make plays after the catch. He's a deep sleeper worth keeping an eye on.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith was fired Monday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Smith had a lot of success early on as the Falcons head coach, but he failed to get the team in the postseason each of the last two years. This move comes as no surprise.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman to see work    Sun Dec 28, 09:24 AM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is likely to see a decent workload Sunday, Dec. 28, with RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) likely out for Week 17.

Footballguys view: Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers are both solid daily fantasy plays this week with their reduced price tags, but the Panthers front seven is still very tough to run on.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is likely to play Sunday, Dec. 28.

  Falcons | More reps for Devonta Freeman, Jacquizz Rodgers    Fri Dec 26, 05:08 PM

Atlanta Falcons RBs Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers are expected to see more repetitions in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) unlikely to play. However, head coach Mike Smith hasn't officially ruled Jackson out yet. The team is anxious, though, to see how Freeman will perform with more touches. RB Jerome Smith, who was promoted from the practice squad this week, will be active against the Panthers.

Footballguys view: Freeman has more upside in what the heck flex Week 17 plays and daily league bargain plays, but Rodgers will certainly get his share of work against the tough Panthers front seven.

   Falcons | Steven Jackson questionable    Fri Dec 26, 12:50 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) will be listed as questionable for the team's Week 17 game.

Footballguys view: There haven't been any strong signs that Jackson will play this week, and he has tended to be a slow healer later in his career. Look for Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman to split the work in the Falcons backfield Sunday.

  Falcons | Jerome Smith promoted    Wed Dec 24, 10:04 AM

Atlanta Falcons RB Jerome Smith was signed to the 53-man roster Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Footballguys view: This might be a sign that Steven Jackson (quad) might not be healing quite as fast as the team had hoped. Smith is a banger between the tackles who can grind down an opponent with his punishing style. We may see rookie Devonta Freeman more involved in the Week 17 game against the Panthers.
