Matt Bryant - PKPosted 10/19/17 2:39pm ET
Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Bryant missed practice yesterday, so the upgraded status is encouraging. He seems to be on pace to take the field on Sunday night, in which case he is a definitive No. 1 fantasy kicker.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 10/19/17 2:36pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: It's hard not to like any offensive player in the Atlanta Falcons - New England Patriots tilt. Sanu was playing well before succumbing to his hamstring injury in Week 4. If he's not on a snap count then he's worth a look as a WR3 or flex.
Matt Bryant - PKPosted 10/18/17 3:33pm ET
Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) was not able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Bryant missed practice last week, too, but still managed to take the field. Keep tabs on his progress throughout the week, but odds are he'll be starting barring any setbacks.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 10/18/17 3:30pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) was able to put in a limited practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Sanu is on the mend and on his way to suiting up in Week 7 after being sidelined last week. The Falcons need their No. 2 wide receiver in what is shaping up to be a barn burner with the New England Patriots. Sanu's status needs to be monitored in the coming days, but if he's healthy enough to play then he warrants at least flex consideration.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 10/17/17 9:33pm ET
Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said he is 'hopeful' that WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) will return to practice this week. Sanu has been out since injuring his hamstring in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Outside of his 85-yard performance in Week 2 Sanu has been pretty quiet this season, so odds are you'll want to see him make a positive contribution before considering him for your lineup, even against a vulnerable Patriots secondary.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/16/17 1:36pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will be more involved in the offense if head coach Dan Quinn has his way. Quinn said he was not satisfied with how often Jones was seeing the ball, adding that more offensive plays in general will help that cause.
Huddle Up: There has been a plethora of fantasy disappointments in 2017, one of them being Jones. The star receiver has amassed just 25 catches for 367 yards and -- worst of all -- no touchdowns. Needless to say, though, he needs to remain a fixture in fantasy lineups.
Matt Bryant - PKPosted 10/15/17 7:09am ET
Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) is expected to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Bryant has made all nine of the field goal attempts and can be a solid fantasy option in all leagues because of the Falcons offense.
Taylor Gabriel - WRPosted 10/15/17 2:02pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel managed four receptions for 39 yards on eight targets in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Gabriel was busy in the pass game with Mohamed Sanu on the shelf, although it was Marvin Hall with the scoring reception rather than Gabriel. He is worth a look as a WR4 or flex option in deeper PPR formats in Week 7 at New England if Sanu remains sidelined.
Marvin Hall - WRPosted 10/15/17 2:02pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Marvin Hall posted a 40-yard touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins on his only target.
Huddle Up: Someone had to step up with Mohamed Sanu on the shelf and it was Hall making the big play. Despite the touchdown score he shouldn't be a blip on most people's fantasy radar heading into Week 7.
Tevin Coleman - RBPosted 10/15/17 2:01pm ET
Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 32 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added one catch for four yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Coleman visited the end zone for the first time since Week 2 against the Packers. He continues to receive about 10-13 total touches per week and remains a decent RB3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the New England Patriots.
Devonta Freeman - RBPosted 10/15/17 2:01pm ET
Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed nine times for 68 yards in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two receptions for 11 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: It was Freeman's first game of the season without a touchdown run, as he has managed five scores in his first four outings. He'll look to get back into the end zone in Week 7 in a Super Bowl rematch with the New England Patriots on the road.
Matt Ryan - QBPosted 10/15/17 1:57pm ET
Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 35 pass attempts for 248 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Another week, another game Ryan and Julio Jones have failed to combine for a touchdown. The combination has yet to hook up for a score this season. Matty Ice should have a big game on Sunday night in Week 7 in a Super Bowl rematch with the New England Patriots and their leaky pass defense.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/13/17 11:47am ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) has been cleared to play Week 6 versus the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Jones told reporters the team 'had a plan' for him earlier this week when he was limited, and this confirms that. With Mohamed Sanu out, Jones could be primed for his first big game of the year. While the Dolphins have only surrendered two receiving touchdowns to wideouts and been fairly stingy thus far, Keenan Allen (nine catches, 100 yards) and Michael Thomas (eight catches, 89 yards) were both able to have their way against them.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/13/17 3:41pm ET
Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) was listed as a limited participant for practice Friday, Oct. 13, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 6 game with the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: It could be a very fruitful week for Jones and the Falcons pass offense, as the Dolphins rank 22nd in the NFL allowing 234.0 yards per game through five outings while yielding nine pass plays of 20 or more yards. After a bye, it's good to have Jones back, although he is still looking for his first TD of 2017.
Matt Bryant - PKPosted 10/13/17 3:41pm ET
Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) practiced on a limited basis Friday, Oct. 13, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: If you normally rely upon Bryant, or you need a bye-week replacement, Bryant appears to be good to go.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/12/17 10:14am ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) put in a limited practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Jones has basically been limited his whole career. By no means should Jones' owners consider benching Jones this week. He is a WR1 play as long as he is playing, no matter who the opponent is.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 10/12/17 2:12pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) remained a non-participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Sanu looks doubtful for Week 6. If he does miss the Falcons' contest then Taylor Gabriel and Austin Hooper should see more targets. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman may also be more involved in the passing game. Gabriel and Hooper are sleeper candidates in standard leagues.
Matt Bryant - PKPosted 10/12/17 2:15pm ET
Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) missed his second straight practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Don't fret if Bryant is your starting kicker. Kicker is the most streamable position in fantasy football. Feel free to drop him, especially if a higher-end kicker like Will Lutz is available who is coming off a bye week.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/11/17 2:10pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Jones has had plenty of time to rest and recover following the Falcons' Week 5 bye. The Miami Dolphins have been tough against the pass so far this year, but Jones is essentially matchup proof and a must start as long as he is active.
Matt Bryant - PKPosted 10/11/17 2:14pm ET
Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) was absent from practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: It's usually safe to drop a kicker for another one on the waiver at any given point in a season. Bryant is one of the best at his position, but kickers are a dime a dozen.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 10/9/17 12:25pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Sanu was expected to miss multiple weeks because of the injury, so he probably will be sidelined for at least one more week. Taylor Gabriel should have a bigger role in the passing game and can be a flex option in deeper leagues this week.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/9/17 1:09pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) participated in at least a portion of practice Monday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: It appears like Jones has a good chance to play this week, but owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week. He will be a No. 1 receiver whenever he is able to return to the field.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/2/17 5:49am ET
Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) isn't expected to miss playing time with the Week 5 bye, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Jones has disappointed with 19 grabs for 295 yards and no touchdowns through the first quarter of the season. However, he's a stud receiver, and it may be an opportunity to buy low on him.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/1/17 10:45am ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) suffered a hip injury in Week 4 and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to find out the severity of Jones' injury. He is one of the top receivers in fantasy and would be difficult to replace if it is a long-term injury.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 10/1/17 11:48am ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 4 and has been ruled out for the game.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye out for an update on Sanu after the game or in the next day or two. Sanu was off to a solid start to the season, but owners should be able to find other options to use in their lineup is Sanu misses multiple games.
Julio Jones - WRPosted 10/1/17 11:59am ET
Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) will not be returning to the team's Week 4 game because of his hip injury.
Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Jones' status after the game or in the next few days. It is not a good sign that he was not able to return to the game and may indicate he could miss more time. It would be hard for owners to replace Jones in their lineups but may have to look for other receiver options.
Taylor Gabriel - WRPosted 10/1/17 4:33pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel was targeted five times in the Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills but he had zero catches.
Huddle Up: Matt Ryan had to look for secondary and tertiary receivers in the loss, as both Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu left early in the game due to injuries. Gabriel emerged as a valuable fantasy player last season when Jones was sidelined, and he could be useful again if Jones or Sanu missed time due to their injuries. Fortunately, the team has Week 5 to recuperate during a bye.
Justin Hardy - WRPosted 10/1/17 4:33pm ET
Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy posted two receptions for just 12 yards in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was able to grab a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Hardy doesn't do enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most leagues, but he could be useful going forward if Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu are forced to miss time. Fortunately for the Falcons they're off in Week 5 for a bye.
Devonta Freeman - RBPosted 10/1/17 4:32pm ET
Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 18 times for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills and he added two receptions for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Freeman was busy in the run game, especially with the Falcons down Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu for most of the contest due to injuries. You'll need to find alternates in fantasy for Week 5, as the Falcons are on a bye.
Austin Hooper - TEPosted 10/1/17 4:32pm ET
Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted five receptions for 50 yards on seven targets in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Hooper equaled the amount of receptions he had through the first three games, and his yardage total was his most since Week 1. He still has to show a little more consistency before he can be considered in fantasy leagues on a regular basis, although he could continue to see more work going forward if Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu are forced to miss time beyond the Week 5 bye.
