  Falcons | Roddy White expecting shootouts    Mon Sep 29, 08:55 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said he expects the team to be involved in high-scoring shootouts all year, and head coach Mike Smith agreed to an extent. 'I don't like to think in terms of shootouts,' Smith said. 'But I definitely think we've got to score more than the other guy. We have to do whatever it takes.'

Footballguys view: We're expecting shootouts too. The Falcons defense is not that good, so the offense will have to shoulder the load. This means a lot of Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Roddy White...with a dash of Devin Hester.

  Falcons | Harry Douglas expected to play    Sat Sep 27, 12:11 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) is expected to play in Week 4 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.

Footballguys view: With Douglas back out there, it will take away some targets from Devin Hester. Roddy White is probable for this game, meaning Douglas (or Hester) could have a limited number of targets.

  Falcons | Roddy White will start    Fri Sep 26, 09:36 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) will start the Week 4 game Sunday, Sept. 28, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Footballguys view: White has had extended rest and should be a safe play against the Vikings on Sunday. If he suffers a re-injury or otherwise looks slowed down, we'll have to increase the intensity of the "Roddy White impending decline watch".

  Falcons | Julio Jones better after injury?    Thu Sep 25, 09:46 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he focused on strengthening his quadriceps while rehabbing his broken foot and has noticed a difference on the field this year. 'I can get in and out of my cuts easier because my quads are very strong now,' Jones said. 'Last year, I wasn't as strong. I was using more of my hamstrings. Now I'm able to explode out of cuts and therefore get separation from DBs.'

Footballguys view: Jones has certainly picked up where he left off. He's a rock solid WR1 and a must start for fantasy owners each week.

  Falcons | Devin Hester fully practices    Thu Sep 25, 03:27 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

  Falcons | Roddy White does some work    Thu Sep 25, 03:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Footballguys view: White is a borderline WR3/flex, and the hamstring is a concern. Minnesota isn't great defensively--plus Matt Ryan is on fire lately, so White continues to have value despite being banged up.

  Falcons | Roddy White expects to play    Thu Sep 25, 11:38 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) said he believes he is ready to play in the team's Week 4 game.

Footballguys view: White's a little banged up but should be effective this weekend. He's far past the time of his career where he is a huge fantasy earner but should put enough yards together to work as a solid WR3.

  Falcons | Roddy White limited    Wed Sep 24, 04:29 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) had his MRI come back negative on the injured foot he suffered Thursday, Sept. 18. The team will not update his status until sometime next week.

Footballguys view: Good news for a passing offense that already has a banged up Roddy White. As long as Julio Jones is healthy though, Matt Ryan should be good.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) isn't expected to be active for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18, in the opinion of CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Footballguys view: White had a great Week 1 but was only average Week 2 against the Bengals. Ultimately that's what you'll get week to week--sometimes up, sometimes down. Thursday night looks bad, so get another option.
