    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) will be a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 23, but he remains in the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: It's a stretch to think he'll clear the rest of the phases of the protocol and be in a position to have a large role in the game Sunday. Tevin Coleman is a great RB1 option this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Nov. 22. Freeman, according to a source close to him, feels ready to play, but he has to go through the entire process.

    Huddle Up: He looks iffy to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. Tevin Coleman struggled with the lead role last week, but he remains an attractive RB1 if Freeman is out.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/22/17 3:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Jones likely will be limited during most of the week but should be in uniform in Week 12. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

    Posted 11/22/17 3:15pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Freeman is still going through the concussion protocol and needs to be cleared to be cleared before he is allowed to play. Owners should check on his status later in the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 12. Owners should have other options available in case Freeman sits again.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 11/21/17 6:10am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown nine touchdowns and two interceptions with a 104.9 passer rating over the last five games. He threw six touchdowns and six interceptions with an 87.3 passer rating in the first five games.

    Huddle Up: Ryan had a considerable Super Bowl hangover for the early stage of the season, but he has begun to right the ship. It's not the high-end QB1 reputation he earned last season, but with all the injuries and struggles at the position in fantasy, he remains a solid QB1.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 11/20/17 9:07pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 19-of-27 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 11 win Monday, Nov. 20, against the Seattle Seahawks. He also had three rushes for 12 yards.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't his 335-yard, three-touchdown effort in Seattle last year, but this was still an acceptable performance, of course, and it also extended Ryan's streak of having multiple touchdown passes in a game to four. The 10-year veteran hasn't lived up to the lofty expectations he set for himself a year ago when he was crowned league MVP, but he's still enjoying a nice campaign that keeps him in the perennial QB1 conversation.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/20/17 9:01pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones recorded five catches on 10 targets for 71 yards in the team's Week 11 victory Monday, Nov. 20, against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Once again, Jones was held without a touchdown, and as a result, he shockingly remains stuck on one for the season. At the same time, he continues to get his usual massive number of looks, especially when compared to the rest of the offense, as no one else drew more than four targets for the game. It's been a frustrating time owning Jones but owners just need to show patience and keep trotting him out there. The touchdowns will come.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/20/17 8:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman managed 20 carries for 43 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 11 victory Monday, Nov. 20, versus the Seattle Seahawks. He also added one catch for 15 yards.

    Huddle Up: Thanks to a one-yard touchdown plunge in the first quarter, Coleman was able to deliver a worthwhile outing for his fantasy owners in the absence of Devonta Freeman (concussion). However, owners shouldn't get too comfortable in rolling with the 24-year-old, as there's a good chance Freeman returns to action in Week 12. If that's the case, Coleman would be tough deploying outside the deepest formats.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/18/17 3:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been ruled out of the team's Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman should receive most of the playing time at running back against the Seattle Seahawks. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/18/17 5:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) had limited participation in practice Saturday, Nov. 18.

    Huddle Up: Jones is one of those players that you must start unless the injury report reads 'out' next to his name. He may not get all the reps in, but come game time Jones will get the job done.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/17/17 2:14pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Friday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been taking it easy in recent weeks during practice, but he hasn't missed any game time as a result of his nagging ankle injury. When active he is an obvious must-start fantasy option regardless of matchup.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/17/17 2:13pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) did not practice Friday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Freeman was absent from practice both Thursday and Friday putting his status in serious doubt for Monday's game in Seattle. If he is ruled out it would be Tevin Coleman handling the workload, with Terron Ward also chipping in.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/16/17 9:19am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) won't practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Freeman is likely out this week, and Tevin Coleman has RB1 written all over him against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/16/17 9:51am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Jones is still productive, but his one touchdown has limited his appeal after being taken as a stud WR1. He remains a low-end WR1 against the Seattle Seahawks this week.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/16/17 4:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Despite having just one touchdown on the year, Jones can still be a strong WR1 option on any given week, especially this one as he'll be facing a Seahawks defense that will be missing a couple of key players. Jones is overdue for some scores, so hopefully that number begins to ascend towards its norm on Monday.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/15/17 3:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman might be called upon to start in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks with RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) uncertain. Head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday, Nov. 15, that the team is confident in Coleman's ability to shoulder the load.

    Huddle Up: Coleman, who hasn't lost a fumble in 30 games, might be the workhorse against the Seattle Seahawks. While it's not a particularly attractive fantasy matchup, he is a decent low-end RB2 or flex option if Freeman is inactive.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 11/15/17 7:02pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan became the quickest quarterback in NFL history to reach 40,000 passing yards (151 games) with his performance in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys, breaking New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' record by one game.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has had a fine season up to this point, but given the many career bests that he set a year ago, he's also left a little bit more to be desired from owners who invested an early draft pick on the Falcons' veteran signal-caller. For instance, Ryan's 263.6 yards per game is his lowest mark since 2011. Despite this, he's still worth plugging in the lineup every week and could churn out numbers closer to his norm throughout the rest of the second half of the year.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 11/13/17 8:17am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman figures to see a larger role with RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) expected to miss Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Coleman doesn't have the greatest matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. However, he figures to see heavy work and should be in the RB1 discussion. Terron Ward could also be used as a flex play if you have to cover an injury.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/13/17 8:14am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is unlikely to play in Week 11 after suffering his second concussion of the season. It's possible he could miss multiple games.

    Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman becomes an RB1 against the Seattle Seahawks next week. Terron Ward could also be a sneaky flex play.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/13/17 11:13am ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Freeman has not been ruled out for Week 11, however, contrary to previous reports. Freeman suffered a concussion in the preseason. He injured his knee against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman has the potential to be featured next week, but we'll need to keep tabs on Freeman's status throughout the week. The good news is that Freeman has an extra day to recover since the Falcons play next Monday night. If Freeman does miss the game then Coleman has RB1 upside even in a tough matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR
    Posted 11/12/17 8:52pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted three receptions for 29 yards on five targets in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has three or more receptions in seven of his eight games, but he has gone backwards with just 52 total receiving yards over the past two outings. Still, he isn't a bad low-end WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Austin Hooper - TE
    Posted 11/12/17 8:52pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper racked up six receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown on his six targets in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Hooper has been targeted at least six times in five of his past six outings and he has 47 or more yards and three or more catches in four of his past six. As a bonus for fantasy owners, he has two scores over the past three games. He'll look to carry the momentum over into Week 11 in Seattle on Monday.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/12/17 8:51pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted six receptions for 57 yards on eight targets in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Jones has scored just one touchdown this season, and he has just two 100-yard games. Overall, his numbers aren't bad for a regular wide receiver, but not a consensus first-round fantasy pick. He is averaging 6.0 receptions per game over the past five outings to give PPR owners a boost lately, but he is not helping standard owners as much. He faces a dinged up Legion of Boom in Week 11 on Monday night.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 11/12/17 8:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel posted three receptions for 58 yards in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has three grabs in each of the past two games while averaging 57.0 yards per outing. That's not terrible production for a WR4 in deeper PPR formats.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/12/17 8:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 20 times for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys, filling in nicely once RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) left in the first half.

    Huddle Up: Coleman would be the bellcow in Week 11 on Monday Night Football in Seattle if Freeman isn't clear to play, but the good news is that he gets an extra day to make it through the league's protocol. Coleman would be a solid RB2 if Freeman is inactive.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 11/12/17 8:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 22 of his 29 pass attempts for 215 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has still only hooked up with Julio Jones for one touchdown so far this season, and the offense has just looked disjointed for most of the season. Still, if you drafted Ryan you have to roll with him at this point. The Falcons visit the Seahawks on Monday night in Week 11.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/10/17 8:19am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is on the practice field Friday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: It's unknown whether he'll be limited or not, but it's a good sign for him to suit up in Week 10. The Dallas Cowboys have been a little susceptible to WRs the last five weeks, but they're still a midrange matchup. Jones has one touchdown on the year and has more value in PPR as a WR1 than in other formats.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 11/10/17 2:31pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 10, but he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Jones did enough to satisfy the coaching staff and he'll be on the field for Sunday's showdown against the Cowboys. Dallas ranks 18th in the NFL in pass defense, yielding 223.4 yards per game with 14 touchdowns, while also giving up 24 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 11/10/17 2:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) practiced in full for a second straight day on Friday, Nov. 10, and he has been removed from the injury report.

    Huddle Up: Freeman has been on the injury report for several weeks but he has yet to miss any game time. He remains a solid fantasy option against the league's No. 13 ranked rush defense of the Cowboys.

  • Matt Bryant - PK
    Posted 11/10/17 2:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (calf) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 10, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 10 game with the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Bryant will be active on Sunday so you can be confident in starting him if you normally rely upon the veteran.
