  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu practiced on limited basis    Wed Oct 18, 06:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) was able to put in a limited practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Footballguys view: Sanu should be back this week for the Falcons provided he suffers not setbacks. If he's on the field for the big game against the Patriots on Sunday night, it will give QB Matt Ryan another weapon to throw to. Sanu's presence may also limit the targets for a guy like Taylor Gabriel.

  Falcons | Two starters expected to return to practice    Wed Oct 18, 12:45 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) and DE Courtney Upshaw (ankle, knee) will reportedly be cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Footballguys view: Getting Sanu back gives QB Matt Ryan another quality target. Everyone is going to be glued to the TV for the Super Bowl 51 rematch when the Falcons take on the Patriots Sunday night. If Sanu plays, it could take away a little bit of opportunity for guys like WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu to practice this week?    Wed Oct 18, 12:33 AM

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said he is 'hopeful' that WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) will return to practice this week.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on his status as the week goes on. Sanu has been out since injuring his hamstring in Week 4. If Sanu can't play in Week 7, it would mean a larger opportunity for guys like WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper.

  Falcons | Garrett Grayson signed by Falcons    Tue Oct 17, 04:56 PM

Free-agent QB Garrett Grayson (Saints) was signed to the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Grayson was a developmental quarterback for the Saints but he didn't come along as they hoped. Now he'll get a chance to develop as a scout team quarterback for the Falcons. We stubbornly haven't given up on him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Falcons | Brian Hill re-signs with Falcons    Mon Oct 16, 05:57 PM

Free-agent RB Brian Hill (Falcons) was re-signed to the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad Monday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Hill spent training camp with the Falcons and knows the system. Atlanta made him a fifth-round pick out of Wyoming in the 2017 NFL draft. Hill is a good all-purpose back that we're watching in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Falcons | Atlanta not content with Julio Jones' touches    Mon Oct 16, 04:36 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will be more involved in the offense if head coach Dan Quinn has his way.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners aren't happy with his lack of involvement either. Quinn said he was not satisfied with how often Jones was seeing the ball, adding that more offensive plays in general will help that cause. Jones has only one 100-yard game this year (Week 2 against the Packers) and has yet to score a touchdown in 2017.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman runs for 68 yards    Sun Oct 15, 05:01 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed nine times for 68 yards in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two receptions for 11 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Freeman was running hot early and on his way to a huge day, but the Falcons lost their stride on offense in the second half after opening up a 17-0 lead. He's still the boom/bust RB1 against the Patriots next week that he has been all year.

  Falcons | Just one TD strike for Matt Ryan    Sun Oct 15, 04:57 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 35 pass attempts for 248 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: The Falcons had the bye to get the offense straightened out and it seemed like they did for the first half, but the pressure got to Matt Ryan in the second half and he was off. He'll get the terrible Patriots defense to get right next week, but Ryan is only startable at this point in plum matchups like that one.

  Falcons | Week 6 Inactives    Sun Oct 15, 11:43 AM

The Atlanta Falcons have declared OT Austin Pasztor, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, LB Courtney Upshaw, LB Jermaine Grace, WR Mohamed Sanu, WR Nick Williams, OG Sean Harlow inactive for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Taylor Gabriel will get the start for Sanu this week against an inexperienced set of Dolphins corners.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) remained a non-participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Bump Taylor Gabriel to WR3 status with upside, and if Sanu is definitely out, he could see more targets than usual.

  Falcons | Julio Jones limited again    Thu Oct 12, 01:14 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) put in a limited practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: We expect him to play and torch the lackluster Miami secondary this week. So unless we see a day where he does nothing, we're not worried.

  Falcons | Vic Beasley back on the field    Mon Oct 9, 04:10 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Vic Beasley (hamstring) participated in at least a portion of practice Monday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: Beasley suffered a slight hamstring tear in Week 2 and he's been out since then. He's limited to start the week and should continue getting eased back into practice. Beasley should be considered questionable at best for a Week 6 return.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu could miss 2-3 weeks    Mon Oct 2, 01:02 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) underwent an MRI on Monday, Oct. 2, and is expected to miss two or three weeks with a hamstring injury he suffered in Week 4.

Footballguys view: We've got good news on Julio Jones (hip) but that's not the case with Sanu. His hamstring needs proper time to heal or it could linger as the year goes on. With Sanu out, it leads to more opportunity for guys like Taylor Gabriel or Justin Hardy.

  Falcons | Julio Jones likely fine    Mon Oct 2, 08:49 AM

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) isn't expected to miss playing time with the Week 5 bye, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Whew! Good news for the Falcons and fantasy owners here. Jones was hurt with a hip flexor injury in the second quarter, and the team ruled him out after halftime. With a Week 5 bye, the Falcons superstar WR will have plenty of time to get healthy.

  Falcons | Taylor Gabriel targeted five times    Sun Oct 1, 07:33 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel was targeted five times in the Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills but he had zero catches.

Footballguys view: Gabriel is the healthiest of the Falcons top three wide receivers, but could do nothing in this game against the strong Bills pass defense. He could be worth a fantasy pickup to see if he starts in Week 6 because the Falcons wide receivers are banged up.

  Falcons | Five grabs for Austin Hooper    Sun Oct 1, 07:32 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted five receptions for 50 yards on seven targets in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Hooper had his second best game of the year helping pick up the slack after Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu went down. He'll be a starting fantasy consideration after the team's bye if Jones or Sanu are still out in Week 6.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman piles up yardage    Sun Oct 1, 07:31 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman carried nine times for a team-high 79 yards in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills and he added four catches for a team-best 65 yards on six targets.

Footballguys view: Coleman had his best game of the year going into his bye. If the Falcons wide receivers aren't healthy coming out of the bye, Coleman could have a bigger role in the passing game and deserve weekly starting consideration in fantasy leagues.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 242 yards, TD    Sun Oct 1, 07:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 42 pass attempts for 242 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Ryan has been a fantasy underachiever this year even though his offense returned intact. He's entering his bye as a disappointment, but remember that he gets the Saints in Weeks 14 and 16.
