  Falcons | More TDs for Julio Jones?    Thu Sep 10, 10:37 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has led the team in touchdown catches just once in the past five seasons, but offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter plans to create more scoring opportunities for Jones by putting him in space more often.

  Falcons | Todd Gurley set to handle big workload    Tue Aug 25, 03:38 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley is expected to see a minimum of 15 touches per game, according to offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.'I think a minimum of 15 touches and a high of (25). But you've got to realize we've got a lot of guys that need touches. You're going to have 64 plays in a game on average on offense. Depending on where you're at in the season and wear and tear, I think the low is 15 and maybe the high end 25,' Koetter told ESPN in a phone interview Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: Gurley is their lead back but what does he have left in the tank? How long will he be able to handle that workload? These are questions that will be answered this year. Gurley has a current ADP of RB19 (3.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.
