  Falcons | Calvin Ridley done for the season    Mon Dec 9, 01:52 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (abdominal) announced on social media he will miss the rest of the season due to an abdominal injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Ridley finishes his second season with 63 catches for 866 yards and seven touchdowns. He's a big part of the Falcons offense and has a nose for the end zone with 17 touchdowns in two seasons as a pro. Ridley should be considered a WR2 breakout candidate in 2020.

  Falcons | Austin Hooper returns for a pair of grabs    Sun Dec 8, 06:36 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) caught two passes for 32 yards on six targets vs. the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Hooper was disappointing only because this game was easy and comfortable for his quarterback. It was also his first week back from a three week layoff. He'll still be a TE1 against the 49ers next week, especially if Calvin Ridley is out.

  Falcons | Julio Jones held in check    Sun Dec 8, 06:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught five passes for 76 yards and a touchdown on five targets vs. the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Ridley looked great but also suffered an abdomen injury in this one. It could end his season with only three games left. Russell Gage and Christian Blake would get more snaps and targets if Ridley is out.

  Falcons | Brian Hill gets in on the fun vs. Carolina    Sun Dec 8, 06:23 PM

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman rewards trusting fantasy owners    Sun Dec 8, 06:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 17 times for 84 yards and a touchdown vs. the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He added four receptions for 10 yards.

Footballguys view: The Panthers run defense is gassed. Freeman won't have nearly as good a time of it against San Francisco next week, but the Seahawks backs should feast on Carolina's weary defenders.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan effective in winning effort    Sun Dec 8, 06:18 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 20-for-34 passing for 313 yards, two touchdown and no interceptions vs. the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Ryan was solid against the Panthers and a 93-yard pass play to Olamide Zaccheaus made his fantasy afternoon. Calvin Ridley got banged up and San Francisco is up next, so we might not go to Ryan in Week 15.

  Falcons | Calvin Ridley will not return    Sun Dec 8, 03:50 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (abdomen) suffered an abdomen injury during the Week 14 game and will not return.

  Falcons | Austin Hooper not on injury report    Fri Dec 6, 06:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 6, but is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Hooper will be back this week for the Falcons. He's been trending in the right direction for quite some time, so Fantasy GMs can trust him as a TE1 in Week 14. Hooper was the No. 1 fantasy tight end before he got hurt, and he should be a big part of what the Falcons do on offense against the Panthers.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (shoulder) is 'trending upward' in terms of his availability for Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Quinn added Jones would have had a 'much better chance' to play in Week 13 had the game not been on a short week. We should see Jones limited during practice, at least on Wednesday, with a hope that he could be a full participant on Friday.
