• Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 12/8/17 10:55am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Friday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Coleman suffered the injury of late in Thursday's win over the New Orleans Saints, but he will have 10 days to recover as the Falcons do not play again until Monday Night Football to wrap up Week 15. Devonta Freeman enjoyed a 24-9 advantage in touches over Coleman in Week 14 and projects for even more work versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if Coleman is not cleared in time.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 12/7/17 8:58pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 32 yards in a 20-17 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has just 17 carries for 54 yards in the two games since Devonta Freeman returned to the lineup, and Coleman is back to being a flex option for fantasy owners.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 12/7/17 8:52pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 24 times for 91 yards and a touchdown in a 20-17 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Freeman has resumed his role as the lead back in Atlanta, and he should at least be a low-end RB1 moving forward.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 12/7/17 9:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 15 of his 27 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during the team's Week 14 victory over the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Ryan channeled Nathan Peterman Thursday night, tossing three picks in the span of four passing attempts. He eventually made enough plays to win, but the end result was arguably his worst statistical performance of 2017. Things should be easier next week versus the lone non-contender in the NFC South, Tampa Bay, who Ryan passed for 317 yards against in the first meeting.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 12/7/17 9:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught five passes for 98 yards against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Dec. 7. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.

    Huddle Up: After getting shut down by Minnesota, Jones rebounded with a solid night's work against the Saints. While Jones has only three 100-plus-yard games on the year, Thursday marked the third time he's finished in the 90s. He'll be a strong WR1 next week against the same Buccaneers squad he eviscerated for 253 yards and two scores back in Week 12.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 12/7/17 9:38pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu tallied six receptions (on eight targets), 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's three-point win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been up and down this year, but by scoring Thursday night he has now logged a touchdown in four of his last seven games. While Sanu has some value in larger leagues, he's not someone you want to pin your playoff hopes on.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 1:55pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught 43 yards on three catches against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games but does have three touchdowns in the last six games. He should receive a solid amount of targets against the New Orleans Saints but is not a must-start option.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 12/3/17 1:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 22 yards on eight carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 27 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Coleman returned to his normal role on offense with Devonta Freeman back in the lineup and will be involved in the running and passing game moving forward. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 12/3/17 1:45pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed for 74 yards on 12 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Freeman returned from his concussion and received a majority of the carries against the Vikings. He should remain the leading rusher for the Falcons and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back next week.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 12/3/17 1:40pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 16-for-29 for 173 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has thrown for less than 200 yards in two of the last three games but has facing two of the best defenses in the NFL in those games. He will be facing an improved New Orleans Saints defense in Week 14 but can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 2:00pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught two passes for 24 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Jones was being covered by Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes, which can explain his disappointing performance. He should have a better outing against the New Orleans Saints next week and should be a starting option in all leagues.

  • Austin Hooper - TE
    Posted 12/3/17 2:09pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught three passes for 21 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Hooper has had a decent role in the passing game this season but has recorded at least 50 yards on only two games this season. He should only be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

  • Matt Bryant - PK
    Posted 12/1/17 12:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 1, but is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Bryant should be able to play this week, but owners can monitor the situation to make sure. He has made each of his last 11 field goal attempts and is a solid fantasy option.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 12/1/17 12:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 1, but is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Jones will see his usual workload but likely will be covered by Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes for most of the game. He should still be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues, but owners may want to lower their expectations a bit because of the matchup.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 12/1/17 12:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Freeman probably will share playing time with Tevin Coleman this week against the Minnesota Vikings. He has gone five games without a touchdown but should receive a decent amount of touches during the game. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/30/17 9:48am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman won't be limited in Week 13 as he returns from a concussion, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: He has a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, but Freeman at full strength is an RB1 in fantasy.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/30/17 4:05pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: This is just standard protocol for one of the league's most talented players. Following his monstrous outburst this past weekend against the Buccaneers, owners should obviously continue to ride Jones as their WR1 and hope for the same significant results against a stout Vikings defense.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/30/17 3:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Dan Quinn has already said that Freeman won't be limited when he suits up, so that's good news as it pertains to his outlook for Week 13. Although he draws a tough defense in his return from a two-game absence, Freeman is still worth plugging in as an RB1 regardless.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/29/17 6:05am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and will return to practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Freeman appears poised to return this week, but he'll have a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. He still has to be considered one of the top 12 backs this week as an RB1.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/29/17 3:02pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Jones was likely just taking it easy on his ankle, and there isn't much to worry about. He was the NFC Offensive Player of Week 12 with his giant 12-253-2 stat line, and very quietly he is now over 1,000 yards receiving for the season.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/29/17 3:01pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, and was a full participant.

    Huddle Up: Freeman cleared the league's mandated concussion protocol earlier Wednesday and it's a good sign he was not even listed as a limited participant. It appears he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Vikings, back in a timeshare with Tevin Coleman, who did a great job in Freeman's stead.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/29/17 6:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones recorded 250 or more receiving yards in a game for the third time in his career with his performance in the team's Week 12 game Sunday, Nov. 26, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. No other player in NFL history has ever done it more than once.

    Huddle Up: As continually stressed, Jones was well overdue to post some monster numbers and touchdowns, and owners who stuck with him through the long haul were handsomely rewarded this past Sunday afternoon. Given his otherworldly talents, there's probably a lot more where that came from, so just keep firing up Jones as a WR1 with the utmost confidence.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/28/17 9:26pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) remains in the NFL's concussion protocol as of Tuesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: It's been 16 days since the injury, which seems like ample time to recover, but until the NFL gives Freeman the green light it's Tevin Coleman's job. Keep an eye out for updates as we get closer to game day.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/26/17 1:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Coleman received most of the work at running back with Devonta Freeman out and could have a similar role next week if Foreman remains sidelined. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all leagues if he starts.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 11/26/17 1:51pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-for-35 for 317 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Ryan posted only his third 300-yard game of the season this week and has nine touchdowns in the last five games. He will be facing a terrific Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 13 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 11/26/17 2:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught eight passes for 64 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. He also threw a 51-yard touchdown pass during the game.

    Huddle Up: Sanu was fairly quiet over the last three weeks prior to Week 12 but does have three touchdowns in his last five games. He should receive a decent amount of targets next week but would not be a strong fantasy option.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/26/17 1:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught 12 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones was having a solid season entering Week 12 but had a breakout performance against the Buccaneers. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 receiver even though he will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/24/17 8:44am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) remains in a non-contact jersey Friday, Nov. 24, and seems unlikely to play in Week 12, according to beat writer Vaughn McClure.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here, and Tevin Coleman remains an RB1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/24/17 10:06am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Considering the fact he suffered his second concussion in four months in Week 10, it is hardly surprising the Falcons are holding him out at least two weeks, even though he logged two limited practices this week. In his absence, Tevin Coleman should be considered a high-end RB2 and a worthy fantasy starter in most leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/24/17 3:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle, knee) was limited in practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: This is just the team managing Jones' reps, as he's perfectly fine for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers. Considering Tampa Bay is surrendering more passing yards than all but one team this season, Jones may deliver one of his trademark big stat lines. He's overdue for some touchdowns as well, so hopefully Week 12 begins his resurgence in that department.
