Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was officially limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, but is not listed on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are giving Jones a bit of rest, but he's good to go for the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. He could have a big game against the Packers as Matt Ryan's favorite target.

  Falcons | Taylor Gabriel still limited    Thu Jan 19, 05:05 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: We're not worried about him and feel he will be a good producer this weekend with the attention given to Julio Jones by the Packers secondary - which isn't a tremendous unit to begin with.

  Falcons | Julio Jones to sit again    Thu Jan 19, 01:17 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) will not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 19, but said he will be ready for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: They are just resting him. The Packers secondary is vulnerable, though they will pay extra attention to Jones. We expect Jones to be one of the better options in fantasy this weekend, though, as Matt Ryan will definitely target him a lot.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman with mixed bag against GB    Thu Jan 19, 10:19 AM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown with four catches for 23 yards and another touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.

Footballguys view: The Packers run defense is still ranked pretty highly, but it's a bit of a paper tiger, feasting on teams which aren't very good. Ezekiel Elliott dropped 125 on this unit last week and while we expect Freeman to fall short of that mark, he should be able to find plenty of room to run on Sunday.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan on hot streak    Tue Jan 17, 07:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has six consecutive seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards. That's tied for the second longest streak in NFL history. He posted a franchise record 4,944 yards in 2016.

Footballguys view: Even though the Falcons are likely to lose OC Kyle Shanahan to the 49ers, Ryan should be able to get 4,000 yards passing. If (when?) Shanahan accepts the job to be the 49ers head coach, it will be interesting to see who the Falcons get to run the offense in 2017.

  Falcons | Julio Jones should play in NFC Championship    Mon Jan 16, 12:20 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is expected to be limited during practice this week, but head coach Dan Quinn believes Jones will be 'ready to rock' for the NFC Championship Game.

Footballguys view: Jones is one of the toughest players in the game, and there's no doubt that he's going to play at home in the NFC Championship Game. The big veteran receiver should be able to take advantage of the Packers secondary. This game has shootout written all over it.

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught four of his six targets for 71 yards in a 36-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: Gabriel once again had limited targets, but they were targets that helped move the chains. He's an explosive weapon that OC Kyle Shanahan has unlocked this year. Gabriel will get some good looks in the NFC Championship Game.

  Falcons | No concern for Julio Jones    Sat Jan 14, 08:58 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' (foot) foot injury is not a cause for concern, according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Quinn said Jones could have returned against the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan 14, if needed.

Footballguys view: Jones finished the game with six catches for 67 yards and one touchdown. The Falcons were winning by a good margin and didn't need to rush Jones back into the lineup. They'll need him healthy in the NFC Championship Game next week.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-of-37 for 338 yards and three touchdowns in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Ryan was on fire against Seattle. He was leading long drives, and he was attack the Seattle defense with deep shots through the air. We'll see if he can maintain this hot streak in the NFC Championship Game next week.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: The game against the Seahawks has shootout potential. Jones has a tough matchup, but that hasn't stopped him before. With other assets in the passing game providing threats to the defense, Jones may be able to shake free for a big play here or there.

Atlanta Falcons LB Vic Beasley (shoulder) and CB Robert Alford (knee) practiced fully Friday, Jan. 13.

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) practiced fully Friday, Jan. 13.

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (knee) logged his second straight full practice session on Thursday, Jan. 12.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: Jones against the Seattle secondary is going to be fun to watch. The Falcons are at home, and they're facing a Seahawks defense that is without superstar safety Early Thomas. Jones should be able to get his in the Divisional Round.

  Falcons | Brian Vogler signed by Atlanta    Tue Jan 10, 08:52 PM

Free-agent TE Brian Vogler (Colts) was signed to a Reserve/Future contract by the Atlanta Falcons Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: A 6'7" tight end is always an interesting prospect. He came out of Alabama undrafted in 2015, largely due to injury and inconsistency that plagued his game in college.


  Falcons | Austin Hooper trending in right direction    Tue Jan 10, 12:59 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) moved around well during limited work last week, suggesting he is on track to play to suit up for the team's Divisional Round game this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about Hooper's status later in the week. If he can participate (even if he's limited again) on Friday, then Hooper should be good to go for Saturday's home game against the Seahawks.

  Falcons | Jacob Tamme to be UFA    Sun Jan 8, 03:47 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Turning 32 years old in March, Tamme is clearly not the player he used to be. However, he can still be an effective player when healthy and given a certain role. His work ethic and ability to be a QB's best friend should land him a job somewhere in 2017. When Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan lands a head coaching job, watch to see if Tamme would follow him.

  Falcons | Anthony Dable signs future deal with ATL    Sun Jan 8, 02:04 PM

Free-agent WR Anthony Dable (Giants) signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Atlanta Falcons. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dable is a French-American wide receiver who got his start in Europe playing football after falling in love with the game by playing NFL Quarterback Club on N64. He won three championships in Europe and has an intriguing size/speed combination. Measuring in at 6'4" 225 pounds, Dable can work as a return man or as a receiver. His size makes him tough to bring down, and he can take short passes and turn them into long gains. In super deep dynasty leagues we'll be watching his progress.


  Falcons | Dwight Freeney may ponder retiring    Thu Jan 5, 08:51 AM

Atlanta Falcons LB Dwight Freeney said he'll decide whether he'll retire a month or two after the playoffs are over.

Footballguys view: Freeney could follow his old Colts teammate Robert Mathis into retirement. We'll see how far the Falcons go in the postseason. If they were to win it all, we could see Freeney going out on top.
