• Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 9/28/16 1:22pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Coleman should be able to play in Week 4 and likely will continue to share work with Devonta Freeman at running back. He has been more involved in the passing game but also has four rushing touchdowns. He should be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option if he is able to play.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 9/28/16 1:14pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Sanu suffered the injury in the last game, so owners should see if he will be able to practice later in the week. He has not been as productive as he was in Week 1 but will still have a role in the passing game. Sanu could be a flex option if he is able to play but could also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 9/28/16 1:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Ryan should be ready to play in Week 4 despite the thumb injury but will be facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense this week. He has thrown for 970 yards and seven touchdowns in the first three games and can be a starting option for owners in deeper leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/28/16 1:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jones was held to one catch and 16 yards in Week 3 but should be more involved in the passing game in Week 4. Jones has been limited by the injury but should continue to a starting candidate in all fantasy leagues.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 9/27/16 7:41am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) said his injured left thumb is fine, and he put a glove on the hand in Week 3 to ensure his grip on the ball.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons have the Carolina Panthers in Week 4, which will present a difficult matchup for Ryan. He'll be a midrange QB1 in fantasy.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 9/27/16 10:55am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is likely to play in Week 4 versus the Carolina Panthers after a shoulder injury kept him out of the second half in the team's Week 3 win over the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has performed at about the level most owners expected so far, recording 11 catches for 130 yards and a touchdown. With Atlanta's next three games against the Carolina Panthers, the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, however, he'll be hard-pressed to be anything more than a low-end WR4.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/26/16 4:16pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: It's not a big surprise as Jones had already said he'd play tonight. He has one of the best matchups of the week, at least on paper, against a depleted Saints secondary. What's also in his favor is that this matchup has shootout potential, featuring two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL so far this season. Another game with big numbers could be on the horizon if Jones can avoid aggravating the calf injury.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/26/16 7:12pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but while the Falcons have seven different receivers with a catch, Jones has zero grabs.

    Huddle Up: Jones is killing his fantasy owners Monday, but there is still 30 minutes to go against a poor defense. If he is just being used as a decoy, and that certainly looks to be the case, not good.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 9/26/16 7:17pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the second quarter in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Sanu is a strong WR3 when he is healthy, but he has had difficulty staying healthy so far this season. He is a gifted athlete and talented replacement for Roddy White if he can stay on the field.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 9/26/16 8:23pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) suffered a left thumb injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 3 game against the New Orleans saints Monday, Sept. 26. He had his thumb taped up and he is wearing a left glove.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has missed just two games in his career, and he has made 102 consecutive starts. He is durable, and fantasy owners can expect him to be ready in Week 4.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 9/26/16 9:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for 240 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26. He injured his thumb late in the fourth quarter and had the thumb taped while being fitted with a glove.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has two 300-yard games under his belt this season, although he missed the mark Monday, and he has two or more touchdown passes in each of his three outings. He has re-emerged as a decent low-end TE1, and he had tremendous success despite Julio Jones not being his normal self Monday.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 9/26/16 9:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 12 times for 42 yards with three touchdowns in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26. He added three receptions for 47 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Coleman had been chipping away at Devonta Freeman's playing time lately, but Coleman took a back seat in yardage in this one (207 total yards to 89). Still, Coleman scored three times and continues to see his fantasy stock rise.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 9/26/16 9:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman had 14 carries for 152 yards in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, and he added five receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Freeman's fantasy owners have been wringing their hands early in the season with Tevin Coleman chipping away at Freeman's playing time. He eased minds with a giant stat line, although Coleman also had a big game under the dome. Freeman remains a low-end RB1 in all PPR leagues, and he is a must-start in every other fantasy format.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/26/16 9:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was targeted six times in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but he managed just one catch for 16 yards. That first reception did not come until the second half.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been dealing with a sore calf, and he had an ankle issue earlier in the season, too. Whenever he is active you have to have him in there, as this was an anomaly.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 9/26/16 9:18pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26. Head coach Dan Quinn said Sanu tried to return but was unable to do so.

    Huddle Up: Sanu can be a tremendous receiver opposite Julio Jones, but he needs to stay healthy. That has been a problem for him this season. Reserve him until he can officially practice in full and make his return to the starting lineup.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/24/16 7:22am ET

    Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (calf) is expected to be available for Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints, even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons have a Monday night game versus New Orleans and owners should check to see if Jones practices Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea of his status. DFS players should look for safer options this week due to the uncertainty surrounding the number of snaps he will see.

  • Jacob Tamme - TE
    Posted 9/24/16 10:04am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon. Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. 'You really hope (Jones) is one-on-one, but it?s nice when he?s not and he?s got some bad looks, there?s a lot of other opportunities out there (for the other players). ? You don?t have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you. ? You might not have the same numbers for (Jones) and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense,' Shanahan said.

    Huddle Up: Shanahan has a long history of feeding his top receiver, so this is quite the departure from the norm for him. As nice as he makes it sound, however, defenses are going to be content with the Falcons trying to beat them with Mohamed Sanu and Tamme as opposed to Jones, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Even with a slightly reduced target share this season, Jones is still a weekly WR1.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 9/24/16 12:06pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Sanu likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Falcons this week and should see a decent amount of targets. He could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues because of the favorable matchup.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/24/16 12:05pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jones has said he will play against the New Orleans Saints this week, but owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. Jones will come with some risk but should be a starting candidate in all leagues if he is active.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/23/16 5:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to see if Jones will be able to practice Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea on his status for Week 3. He should be a starter in all leagues if he is active, but owners should have another option ready in case he is ruled out.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 9/23/16 5:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 24.

    Huddle Up: Sanu appears to be on track to play in Week 3, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. Sanu could have a bigger role against the New Orleans Saints if Julio Jones is not able to play. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/19/16 5:24am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg, ankle) missed the final drive of the Week 2 game with a leg injury that wasn't related to his previous left ankle injury, but the team expects him to be fine.

    Huddle Up: Jones has reached the end zone each week, but he has just nine catches for 172 yards, which is a little lackluster for him. He could unleash it in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, though, and he'll remain an elite WR1.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/19/16 11:05am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) has been diagnosed a calf strain, although it is not believed to be serious, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure.

    Huddle Up: If there is any good news to come out of this, it may be that Jones didn't aggravate the ankle injury that has dogged him since late in the preseason. Jones is seemingly always battling through one lower-body injury or another, but he keeps showing up on game day. Anytime Jones is on the field, he is a WR1 in fantasy.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 9/18/16 7:17am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is listed as the team's No. 1 running back on the depth chart, although the organization considers RB Tevin Coleman to be just as talented and tries to give equal touches to both players.

    Huddle Up: This is good news for anyone who waited until the middle rounds of seasonal fantasy drafts to select Coleman. In Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Freeman had 20 rushing yards and 20 receiving yards, while Coleman had 22 rushing yards and 95 receiving yards. For now, Freeman should continue to be viewed as a solid RB2, while Coleman merits strong consideration as an RB3 or flex option.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/16/16 9:41am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and will play Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Expect Jones to be nursed through practices most weeks, but all that matters is his production on game day. Lock Jones in as an elite wide receiver in all fantasy settings and start him confidently. Oakland surrendered 419 passing yards in Week 1, after all.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 9/16/16 3:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Freeman likely will remain as the starting running back but could lose some playing time to Tevin Coleman, which will hurt his value. Owners should consider Freeman a risky No. 2 back this week and could bench him if they have better options.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/16/16 8:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones scored a 25-yard touchdown in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the no-huddle offense, and he said he likes the way offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan uses the no-huddle.

    Huddle Up: Jones is a must-start player in standard formats, but with Atlanta set to face an Oakland defense that was gashed through the air in Week 1, he could also make a strong building block in DFS games.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 9/15/16 10:33am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) will be limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 15, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn said Sanu hopefully will be a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Sanu is coming off a terrific Week 1 performance and should be able to play in Week 2 unless he suffers a setback. He should be considered a No. 3 receiver in deeper leagues and a flex option in other leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 9/15/16 10:26am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 15, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn said Jones hopefully will be a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Jones was limited last week but was able to play and likely will be on the field again in Week 2. He should still be a starting candidate in all leagues, but owners may want to lower their expectations a bit because of the injury.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 9/15/16 9:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (quadriceps) was able to practice fully Thursday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Freeman struggled in the opener, and since he could be playing at less than 100 percent, he should be considered a low-end RB2 in Week 2.
