• Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 11/29/16 9:06am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel has been 'great for us this year' and a 'sparkplug' for the offense, according to QB Matt Ryan.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel hasn't seen more than five targets in a game all season, but it is getting harder to dismiss by the week. Over the last five weeks in PPR scoring (with his bye week included), the Cleveland Browns castoff is 13th among receivers in total fantasy points and seventh in fantasy points per game. In standard leagues, those ranks are sixth and second, respectively. Despite his consistent lack of volume, he has earned the right to be considered a flex option in all leagues at the very least.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 11/27/16 2:23pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-for-34 for 269 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He also rushed for 15 yards on four carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Ryan continues to be one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy leagues and has 10 touchdowns in his last four games. He will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense next week but should still be a starting option in all leagues.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 2:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught four passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He also rushed for 27 yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons have not had a great No. 2 option behind Julio Jones, but Gabriel could fill that spot after his Week 12 performance. He likely will have a solid role in the passing game moving forward and can be at least a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 2:28pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for nine yards and one touchdown on eight carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He also caught two passes for four yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Coleman saw a solid amount of playing time even though he missed a few games because of an injury. Coleman will be a part of the running and passing game moving forward and can be at least a flex option in most leagues.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 2:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed for 60 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He also caught two passes for 17 yards.

    Huddle Up: Freeman received most of the carries during the game even with Tevin Coleman back in the lineup and likely will continue to lead the team in running attempts moving forward. He should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 running back depending on the size of league.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 2:42pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught four passes for 35 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been one of the best receivers in fantasy this season, so owners should not worry about his Week 12 performance. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues moving forward.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/25/16 11:00am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is 'good to go' for Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Coleman should resume his usual high-upside change-of-pace role behind Devonta Freeman, although it should be noted that Arizona is the stingiest defense in the league against running backs in fantasy this season. Atlanta's offensive line is good enough to counteract that somewhat, but Coleman is best viewed as a RB3/flex option this week as a result.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/25/16 1:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 25.

    Huddle Up: It's his second straight day with a full practice. Jones' status isn't in jeopardy at all for Week 12, and as is always the case, he'll take the field as a high-end WR1.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/25/16 1:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 25.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has missed the last three games, but after getting in his third consecutive full practice, it appears he'll be ready to return in Week 12 opposite the Arizona Cardinals. He's a fine flex play for this weekend, though it would be understandable if he's only eased back into action, meaning he might not see his usual amount of touches right out of the gate.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/24/16 7:39pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Jones will likely see his share of coverage from Patrick Peterson in Week 12, but that shouldn't stop him from producing like a WR1.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/24/16 7:34pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Coleman should make his return to the field in Week 12 and split carries with Devonta Freeman. Both players are low-end RB2 candidates.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/23/16 3:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Coleman appears to be on track to play after missing a few games because of his injury. He should share work with Devonta Freeman at running back and will be involved in the passing game. He should be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues and can be a low-end No. 2 running back in some deeper leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/23/16 3:42pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Jones should be fine for the game against the Arizona Cardinals and will receive his normal workload. He has posted at least 100 yards in four of his last five games and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/21/16 10:29am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) was spotted at practice Monday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: This was expected after head coach Dan Quinn suggested Coleman would be back at full participation at some point following the team's Week 11 bye. Barring a setback, the highly explosive Coleman should be considered a RB3 this week against the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/21/16 2:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) said he's feeling 100 percent and is ready to get back on the field after participating in practice Monday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: With Coleman ready to go again Atlanta should once again implement their backfield committee with Coleman and Devonta Freeman. Despite splitting touches, both have excelled this season in Atlanta's prolific offense. They should both be starting considerations in what could be a high-scoring matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/14/16 11:55am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will be back to full participation at some point before his team faces the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Devonta Freeman maintained his usual workload during Coleman's absence, but the Falcons' running game has been far less dynamic since the latter's Week 7 exit. Owners should feel good about using Coleman as a RB2 in most leagues going forward, although his volatility makes him a better flex play, which is what he should be considered against the Cardinals' stout defense in a couple of weeks.

  • Austin Hooper - TE
    Posted 11/13/16 6:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper made the start in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he made just one grab for eight yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Hooper could not take advantage of the absence of Jacob Tamme. Going forward he isn't worth using in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues. The Falcons are off in Week 11.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 11/13/16 6:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu was held to just two catches for 14 yards in the Week 10 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted just two times.

    Huddle Up: The yardage total and targets were each season lows. In contrast, Taylor Gabriel was targeted five times and he scored a touchdown for the third straight game. He appears to be taking away from Sanu's targets. Sanu is nothing more than a WR4 for fantasy owners in Week 12 once the team returns from a bye.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 11/13/16 6:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel only converted one of his five touches for a catch in the Week 10 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, but it was a big play. He posted a 76-yard touchdown, the team's only visit to the end zone in the loss.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has emerged as a playmaker in the Atlanta offense, scoring in three consecutive games. He is garnering attention in TD-only leagues and some deeper fantasy formats. However, the Falcons are off in Week 11 due to a bye.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/13/16 6:31pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones racked up 10 receptions for 135 yards on 16 targets in the Week 10 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: The Atlanta offense had a tough day but Jones was able to get free for his fourth 100-yard game in the past five outings. Needless to say he remains a top fantasy option in all formats. However, he'll need to be replaced in your lineup in Week 11 with the team on a bye.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/13/16 6:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 12 times for 49 yards in the Week 10 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He added three receptions for 32 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Freeman carried the load with Tevin Coleman sidelined again, but he was mostly bottled up by the Eagles rush defense. Fantasy owners need to make alternate plans in Week 11 with the Falcons on a bye.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 11/13/16 6:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 18 of his 33 pass attempts for 267 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 10 road loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Ryan was bothered all day by the Eagles pass rush and this game marked just the third time in 10 starts where he was held to one passing score. Fantasy owners will need to find a replacement in Week 11, as the Falcons have a bye.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/11/16 11:48am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will not play in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit of a bummer after some optimism earlier in the week but not entirely unexpected with the Falcons' bye coming next week. Devonta Freeman should see 15 to 20 touches once again, while Terron Ward will back him up.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/9/16 1:35pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is still rehabilitating his hamstring injury and his status for Week 10 is unclear at this point. If he continues to miss practice then he may end up doubtful to play. If that's the case, Devonta Freeman would be an RB1 consideration as the Falcon's primary running back, even against a tough defense in the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/7/16 10:29am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) was spotted working on the side field during practice Monday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is expected to return to game action this week, but it is a bit discouraging he wasn't able to get a session following a long weekend, although he could easily be in the final stages of proving his fitness as well. Ideally, the second-year back will be able to return to practice in some fashion Wednesday when the team begins its preparation for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10. If he can play, he'll be a high-upside RB2 in that matchup.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 11/4/16 8:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel said offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan installed running plays for him before Week 8 but didn't call any until the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has emerged as an effective No. 3 option in the passing game for Atlanta the last two weeks. He is worth stashing in deeper formats, and he is an intriguing low-priced option in DFS games.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 11/3/16 10:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted five receptions for 74 yards on seven targets in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has 14 grabs for 158 yards and a touchdown over his past two games, and he is worth a look as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 in Philadelphia.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 11/3/16 10:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel posted five receptions for 52 yards in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Nov. 3, and he added two runs for 24 yards including a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been useful over the past two games, posting eight catches for 120 yards and a score while running for another touchdown. He is worth a speculative pick as a WR4 heading into Week 10 in Philadelphia.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/3/16 10:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) was active in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he pulled in eight receptions for 111 yards with a touchdowns on a team-high 11 targets.

    Huddle Up: Jones was hobbled in the latter stages of the Green Bay game in Week 8, but he looked fine in the second half of this NFC South rivalry. Whenever he is active he is a must-start fantasy option, even if he isn't at 100 percent.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/3/16 10:18pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman carried 17 times for 77 yards in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Nov. 3, and he added two grabs for 28 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Freeman remains a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and if Tevin Coleman remains sidelined he should see a lion's share of the touches in the Atlanta backfield.
