  Falcons | Steven Jackson should play    Mon Dec 22, 09:23 AM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) is expected to be ready for Week 17.

Footballguys view: It's a big game for the Falcons this week. Their Week 17 game against the Panthers will determine who wins the NFC South--and who advances to the postseason. With Jackson a bit banged up, we could see more playing time for guys like Jacquizz Rodgers or rookie Devonta Freeman.

  Falcons | Julio Jones will play    Sun Dec 21, 11:14 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) will play Sunday, Dec. 21.

Footballguys view: Jones is a boom/bust WR2 today. Whether or not to play him depends on whether you need a high floor or a high ceiling. Jones could be a decoy, or just get out there and not be able to play at a high enough level to produce, but if he is even 80-90% of his normal self, he could be huge in what should be the highest scoring game of the day.

  Falcons | Julio Jones will be game-time decision    Sat Dec 20, 10:50 AM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' (hip) availability for Week 16 will be determined by his pregame workout, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This is what we've expected all along with Jones. Fantasy owners need to be cautious here, and make sure you have another option at the ready. Even if Jones plays, he could be mostly a decoy for the Falcons. Consider him a risky WR3/flex play if Jones is out there in Week 16.

  Falcons | Friday injury report    Fri Dec 19, 04:18 PM

Atlanta Falcons OG Jon Asamoah (back) and SS William Moore (foot) are listed as questionable for Week 16. CB Josh Wilson is listed as probable. Asamoah did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19. Moore was limited during practice, while Wilson fully participated in practice.

Footballguys view: Kemal Ishmael will be a good IDP start if Moore can't play on Sunday in New Orleans.

  Falcons | Roddy White probable for Week 16    Fri Dec 19, 04:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: The Roddy rule is satisfied for this week as White has practiced in full this week. He could lead the Falcons passing game with Julio Jones' status in doubt Sunday.

  Falcons | Harry Douglas listed as probable    Fri Dec 19, 04:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

  Falcons | Julio Jones a game-time decision?    Fri Dec 19, 02:37 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) missed another day of practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. Jones will be a game-time decision, and he will test his hip Saturday, Dec. 20, before the team leaves town.

Footballguys view: Jones hasn't sounded close to playing this week, so even if he's active, that's no guarantee that he'll produce and play well. It's hard to leave a name of his caliber on the bench, but there are few signs that he'll be able to contribute much this week, if he plays at all.

  Falcons | Julio Jones not practicing    Fri Dec 19, 11:09 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is not participating in portion of practice open to the media Friday, Dec. 19.

Footballguys view: Jones might be active on Sunday vs. New Orleans, but he is a very very risky play. It's more likely that Harry Douglas will be a good play again this week, although with Devin Hester and Roddy White. All three were top 10 PPR plays last week against Pittsburgh.

Atlanta Falcons WRs Roddy White (knee) and Harry Douglas (foot) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after both sat out Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: White and Douglas both look like solid starts this week, especially with Julio Jones probably out. We like White as a WR2 with upside and Douglas is a fantastic WR3 with upside if Jones is not playing.

  Falcons | Julio Jones sitting out again    Thu Dec 18, 12:07 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Not looking good for Jones or his owners in what for most is the final game of the year. Jones seems unlikely to play at this point and even if he does, might not finish the game or contribute all that much. This makes Roddy White a WR2 with upside and Harry Douglas a WR3 with upside in Week 16.

  Falcons | Roddy White on the field    Thu Dec 18, 12:07 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: White isn't what he used to be but should be a low-end WR2 or a very nice WR3. He's got some upside if Julio Jones doesn't play.

  Falcons | Julio Jones not practicing    Wed Dec 17, 01:25 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is not participating in the portion of practice open to the media Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Jones may not play in Week 16, and fantasy owners need to be dialed in here for a few reasons. First, if Jones doesn't play then Roddy White, Harry Douglas and Devin Hester all become better plays. If Jones does play, we like him as more of a WR2 coming off this hip injury.

  Falcons | Julio Jones could sit in Week 16    Tue Dec 16, 09:31 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is expected to be ready to play in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. However, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter indicated the possibility exists that Jones could sit for a second straight game. 'It's hard when you don't know for sure if a guy is going to play no matter if it's Julio or not Julio,' Koetter said Tuesday, Dec. 16. 'We kind of have to have a contingency both ways. We have some 'what if Julio plays' and some 'what if Julio does not play.' We have both. That's one of the hardest things about not knowing if one of your best guys is going to go.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to keep track of Jones' practice status during the week. If Jones plays, we see him as a low-end WR1. If he misses the game, then Roddy White would get a bump in the projections to a mid-range WR2. Both Devin Hester and Harry Douglas would get a bump as well. Hester would become a more interesting flex play in deeper leagues while Dougles would check in at a low-end WR2/WR3 with upside.

  Falcons | Jonathan Massaquoi must prove himself    Tue Dec 16, 07:00 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Jonathan Massaquoi (foot) still needs to show that he deserves to be on the field after returning from injury, according to head coach Mike Smith. 'I think Massaquoi will do that, at least I'm hopeful he will. He's got something to offer. Last year, I thought he was one of our most improved defensive players. He's just got to show up.'

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is expected to be ready to play in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Footballguys view: We'll see what Jones looks like during the week of practice. If all systems are "go" we see Jones as a WR1 for championship rounds in Week 16.

  Falcons | Roddy White tops franchise TD chart    Sun Dec 14, 05:08 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White posted his 62nd career touchdown in the Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, setting the franchise record for most touchdowns.

Footballguys view: White isn't a downfield threat since he's been hurt this year, but with Julio Jones out he still had a solid game for the Falcons and his fantasy owners. Next week at New Orleans is another chance for White for put up a decent stat line.

  Falcons | Julio Jones can barely run    Sat Dec 13, 04:11 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) can barely run and would be used as a decoy if plays Sunday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: This is a very bad sign for both the Falcons and fantasy owners. It's especially bad timing for the latter, as you're either in Championship Week or hoping to make it into that game. You'd better have a rock-solid alternative and even if he plays, it's far too dangerous to have him in your lineup as anything but a flex.

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 15.

Footballguys view: Douglas is worth carrying if you own Julio Jones and need an injury hedge in case Jones is inactive. Douglas had a 9-116 game in place of Roddy White two weeks ago.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 15.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is questionable for the team's Week 15 game. Jones did not practice Friday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: He's a game-time decision, but still almost impossible to bench if he's active because of the matchup and his performance last week.

  Falcons | Julio Jones has good chance to play    Thu Dec 11, 04:27 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) has a good chance to play in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers despite missing practice the last two days, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Footballguys view: We're not disagreeing with Smith here, we just don't share his same optimism. Jones will be a game-time decision, and fantasy owners need to have a backup plan in place if he doesn't play.

  Falcons | Roddy White limited in practice    Thu Dec 11, 03:37 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: White's scored a touchdown three out of the last four weeks so while at best he is a WR3, he's one which has been productive over the last month. His fantasy value gets a boost if Julio Jones (a game-time decision this week) doesn't play.
