• Matt Bryant - PK
    Posted 2/22/18 6:31am ET

    Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent PK Matt Bryant said there is mutual interest in returning to the Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Bryant was a top-10 kicker in fantasy last season, and he'd return to the same low-end PK1 area if he returns to Atlanta.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 2/17/18 8:17pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman would have trade value, according to a high-ranking AFC evaluator. 'Great complement to a starter and he could fill the role as a starting running back,' the evaluator said. 'Great speed and athleticism.'

    Huddle Up: Coleman still has a year remaining on his current deal, so he is likely slated for another year of backing up Devonta Freeman. Even in that role, Coleman has potential as a flex play because of his ability to find the end zone.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 2/3/18 1:17pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) said he could be ready for the start of offseason workouts but wants to be completely healthy before he returns so he does not have to deal with the injury during the season.

    Huddle Up: Freeman probably will participate in some offseason workouts and should be 100 percent for training camp. He likely will continue to see most of the work at running back and can be at least a No. 2 fantasy running back even with Tevin Coleman on the roster.

  • Matt Bryant - PK
    Posted 2/3/18 7:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant said he wants to play two or three more years and would like to end his career in Atlanta.

    Huddle Up: Bryant finished eighth among kickers in points scored in 2017 after ranking first in 2016. Atlanta has plenty of offensive firepower, so Bryant should remain a starting-caliber fantasy kicker again next season.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 2/2/18 7:52pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank expects QB Matt Ryan to take a hometown discount when the two sides work on a contract extension. 'We expect him to work with us to ensure there?s talent around him,' Blank said.

    Huddle Up: Expect the Falcons to do what it takes to keep Ryan around. Although his numbers slipped from his 2016 MVP campaign this season, he remains a perennial QB1 candidate.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 1/19/18 6:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman could remain a part of the backfield beyond 2018, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has one year left on his current deal, and since Atlanta already locked up Devonta Freeman, it would be a bit of a surprise to if the Falcons also gave Coleman an extension. In the meantime, he'll remain one of the more attractive backup running backs for 2018.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/18/18 10:52am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan's potential contract extension will be the focus of the offseason, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

    Huddle Up: Ryan's 2018 numbers paled in comparison to his 2017 MVP campaign, but he was bound to regress after a career year. The veteran signal-caller has thrown over 4,000 yards in seven straight seasons now and is a threat for QB1 status each year.

  • Matt Bryant - PK
    Posted 1/18/18 11:17am ET

    Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant will be in talks with the franchise this offseason about a contract extension, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

    Huddle Up: Bryant is a perennial No. 1 fantasy kicker as long as he is healthy and deserves an extension. Remember, though, don't draft a kicker until the last round.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 1/18/18 12:03pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) will not need surgery to repair his torn posterior cruciate ligament and sprained medial collateral ligament, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Freeman could miss some offseason workouts but should be fine for the start of training camp. He will continue to be the No. 1 running back for the Falcons and should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues in 2018.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/16/18 12:09pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will not participate in the 2018 Pro Bowl due to his nagging ankle injury. Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams will take Jones' place in the Pro Bowl.

    Huddle Up: Jones is dealing with other issues, too, so it makes sense that the Falcons would want to rest him instead of aggravating something in a game that doesn't count for anything. As long as Jones is fully healthy, he should be one of the first few wide receivers selected in fantasy drafts next season.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/13/18 3:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 22-for-36 for 210 yards and one touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Ryan played well this season but was held to one or fewer touchdown passes in each of his last eight games. He should have most of his weapons back next season and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback or a solid backup in all fantasy leagues.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 1/13/18 5:09pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught three passes for 50 yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Sanu was a solid contributor in the team's passing game this season and finished the regular season with 703 yards and five touchdowns. He should be one of the starting receivers again in 2018 and can be a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/13/18 5:06pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught nine passes for 101 yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been one of the best receivers in the NFL over the last several seasons even though he has dealt with some injuries. He will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season and could be a first-round pick.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 1/13/18 5:05pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 79 yards on 10 carries in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13. He also caught one pass for 14 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Coleman receives a lot of touches even though he is not the starter and should have a similar role next season. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy drafts in 2018 and could be a weekly flex option.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 1/13/18 4:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman caught five passes for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13. He also rushed for seven yards on 10 carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Freeman finished the regular season with 865 yards and seven touchdowns this season and likely will remain the team's starting running back in 2018. He also has value in point-per-reception leagues since he recorded 36 catches and 317 receiving yards. He can be at least a No. 2 running back for fantasy owners next season.

  • Austin Hooper - TE
    Posted 1/13/18 5:18pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught one pass for three yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Hooper finished third on the team with 526 yards and recorded three touchdowns during the regular season. He could have a decent role in the passing game in 2018 and has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy tight end next season.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/13/18 5:12pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught two passes for four yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel saw a drop in his production this season compared to last season and finished with 378 yards and one touchdown. Owners on all leagues probably can avoid Gabriel in drafts in 2018.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 1/13/18 7:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) said he played the end of the season with a sprained medial collateral ligament and a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, but he is hoping to avoid offseason surgery.

    Huddle Up: Freeman should enter 2018 as the lead back for Atlanta, but with Tevin Coleman also in the mix, Freeman should be viewed as a high-end RB2.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 1/11/18 11:14am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Sanu and Julio Jones coexisted as well last week as they had all season. Jones, Sanu and Devonta Freeman are clearly Matt Ryan's go-to targets. Sanu can be started as a WR2 or flex even in a difficult matchup versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/11/18 11:10am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Jones will take the field on Saturday as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks to his ankle injury. Jones can succeed against any cornerback and any defense, so don't let the Philadelphia Eagles elite defense cause you to completely rule out Jones.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 1/11/18 11:05am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) had a limited status in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Freeman should be fine for this weekend's playoff tilt. While he didn't succeed on the ground last week, he flourished in the passing game, giving him more value on DraftKings this weekend.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/11/18 11:00am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (non-injury related) participated fully in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Ryan is good to go for the divisional playoff matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. He'll need to be at his best in a hostile playoff environment versus an elite defense, but he is a cheaper DFS play on DraftKings.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 1/10/18 2:08pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

    Huddle Up: Freeman does not appear to be in any danger of missing the playoff game and should receive his normal workload. He is coming off a solid performance in the Wild Card round and can be a No. 1 fantasy running back in most leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/10/18 2:07pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

    Huddle Up: Jones probably does not need a lot of practice time to prepare for the Divisional Round playoff game and should be ready to play. He likely will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues this week.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/10/18 2:26pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (non-injury) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has been playing well over the last month but has gone eight weeks without throwing at least two touchdowns in a game. He will be facing a solid Philadelphia Eagles defense and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 1/10/18 2:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

    Huddle Up: Sanu recorded four catches for 75 yards last week and should receive a solid amount of targets against the Philadelphia Eagles. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver or flex option in leagues.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/10/18 8:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has completed at least 70 percent of his passes in five straight postseason contests after his performance in the team's Wild Card Round victory Saturday, Jan. 6. Only retired QB Troy Aikman has had a longer such streak in the Super Bowl era.

    Huddle Up: Ryan had one of the all-time great postseason runs a year ago, and Matty Ice apparently hasn't cooled off since after his excellent outing last week in Los Angeles. He's also thrown just one interception compared to a whopping 13 touchdowns over this five-game stretch as well. Ryan is one of the safer bets to deploy at QB this weekend in DFS formats, but owners also shouldn't be surprised if the Falcons get extra reliant on their running game in Philadelphia.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/9/18 6:48am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will not practice Tuesday, Jan. 9, but head coach Dan Quinn said there was no injury setback after the Wild Card game.

    Huddle Up: With Antonio Brown (calf) banged up, Jones could be the top receiver left in the playoffs. He had five grabs for 80 yards last week and remains a WR1 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/9/18 1:39pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (personal) was absent from practice Tuesday, Jan. 9. He was at the team facility for parts of the day, however.

    Huddle Up: Ryan will play as long as his personal situation isn't anything too drastic or serious. It's hard to believe he'd miss such a crucial game, especially if he was able to be at the team facility. Coming off a down year, Ryan can be viewed as a high-mid range QB2 heading into 2018.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 1/9/18 3:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) practiced on a limited basis Tuesday, Jan. 9.

    Huddle Up: Sanu saw a season-high 11 targets in the Falcons' big playoff victory last week, tallying seven catches for 71 yards. Even in a tough matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, Sanu shouldn't be overlooked in daily fantasy games.
