Summary

A June 19 trade brought T.J. Yates to the Falcons during 2014. He handled four passes last season for Atlanta (3/4 for 64 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception) Yates appears to be locked in as the backup to Matt Ryan, but as Ryan has been extremely durable during his career (16 games played for the past five years in a row), it is unlikely that Yates will make a fantasy impact this year.

Falcons | Atlanta working out Rex Grossman (Tue Aug 25, 01:00 PM) - Updating a previous item, the Atlanta Falcons are working out free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) Tuesday, Aug. 25. Backup QBs T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree have failed to do much during training camp.

Our View: Zero surprise here. Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is a supporter of Grossman from their time working together with the Washington Redskins, Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns. The seasoned veteran knows the Shanahan offense like the back of his hand.
