    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will not practice Wednesday, Jan. 18, by design, according to Falcons head coach Dan Quinn. Jones will 'do more' later in the week, per Quinn.

    Huddle Up: The all-world receiver should be in fantasy lineups if he dresses, which is the expectation. Green Bay's secondary is abysmal, so even a hobbled Jones should find some room.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/18/17 11:26am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) will be limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel was able to play in the Divisional round game and should be ready for the NFC Championship game this week. He has been targeted at least six times in four of the last five games and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/17/17 4:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has six consecutive seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards. That's tied for the second longest streak in NFL history. He posted a franchise record 4,944 yards in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Ryan is a big reason why the Falcons are in the NFC title game. He's a top MVP candidate coming off a career season. Regression should be expected next season after such a marvelous campaign, but Ryan is still a QB1 consideration.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/16/17 9:20am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is expected to be limited during practice this week, but head coach Dan Quinn believes Jones will be 'ready to rock' for the NFC Championship Game.

    Huddle Up: Jones departed in the fourth quarter of the Falcons' Divisional Round victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, but it was quickly reported he could have remained in the game had Atlanta not been ahead by multiple scores. Along with Antonio Brown and Julian Edelman, Jones should be in the running for top fantasy receiver honors next weekend when he gets a crack at the Green Bay Packers' shorthanded secondary.

    Posted 1/15/17 9:16am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is expected to be ready for the NFC Championship game even though he was limited in the Divisional Round playoff game, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Jones may be limited during practice next week but should receive his normal workload in the NFC Championship game. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and is a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/14/17 4:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) left the NFC Divisional Round game against the Seattle Seahawks with a foot injury. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: It is unclear whether or not Jones aggravated an existing toe sprain or suffered another injury. If his day is over, he will finish with six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. Taylor Gabriel, Mohamed Sanu and Justin Hardy will wrap up the game as the Falcons' top three receivers.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/14/17 4:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-of-37 for 338 yards and three touchdowns in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Ryan took three sacks but was in total control of the Falcons' up-tempo attack otherwise, connecting with Julio Jones, Tevin Coleman and Mohamed Sanu for scores. He did nothing to hurt his argument for NFL MVP, while offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was brilliant once again in getting the matchups he wanted. Ryan should have another field day next week if Julio Jones can play, as neither the Dallas Cowboys nor the Green Bay Packers have enough on defense to hold this passing game in check.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 1/14/17 4:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman totaled 125 yards in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks, rushing for 45 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and adding four catches for 80 yards.

    Huddle Up: The rushing line isn't overly impressive, but Freeman did more than enough to make his DFS owners happy, scoring from a yard out in the third quarter. The highlight of his day was a 53-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter that set Atlanta up for a field goal on the drive after his score. Freeman will remain a very smart pick in all playoff formats next week regardless of whether the Falcons face the Dallas Cowboys or the Green Bay Packers.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB
    Posted 1/14/17 5:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for a game-high 57 yards on 11 carries and added three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Divisional Round against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Coleman showed his usual elite burst on more than one occasion. He scored out of the backfield on a 14-yard pass near the end of the first half on a well-designed route that got him free in the end zone after the receivers executed a scissors route, leaving him all by himself near the sideline. All Coleman remains behind Freeman in the rotation, he should continue to produce enough to be an effective DFS option in the NFC Championship game next week.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/14/17 5:58pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' (foot) foot injury is not a cause for concern, according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Quinn said Jones could have returned against the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan 14, if needed.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Jones should be just fine for the conference title game, and he is one of the most valuable fantasy assets at any position when he is on the field.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/14/17 6:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught four of his six targets for 71 yards in a 36-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: There are a lot of mouths to feed in Atlanta's offense, but Gabriel's ability to turn a few catches into a bunch of yards has made him a quality fantasy starter.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/13/17 8:06am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) practiced fully Friday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel was a bigger part of the offense down the stretch, but some of that can be attributed to Julio Jones' (toe) injury. Jones is back, and Gabriel is a flex option against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/13/17 8:05am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) practiced fully Friday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: He's good to go for the playoff matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Jones had a 7-139-1 line against the Seahawks in October, and he's a WR1 option in fantasy.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/13/17 2:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Jones will be a main target in the team's passing game even though he will be facing a tough Seattle secondary. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/13/17 2:23pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been a contributor for fantasy owners this season and should receive a decent amount of targets during the playoff game this week. Gabriel can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for fantasy owners.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/12/17 3:17pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones missed a couple of games late in the season due to injury, but since returning in Week 16, he's looked like his normal self. In fact, he recorded 11 receptions for 156 yards and a touchdown over his final two contests combined, while drawing 16 targets in the process. As is always the case, he'll be one of the more desirable WR1 options in all formats this weekend.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/12/17 3:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (knee) logged his second straight full practice session on Thursday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Despite missing Atlanta's regular season finale a couple of weeks ago, it looks like Gabriel will have no issues suiting up on Saturday. Given his mostly sizzling run to cap the campaign, the former Cleveland Brown could be a sneaky WR3 play in any format. Prior to missing Week 17, Gabriel registered 60 or more receiving yards in four of his previous six contests, while also finding the end zone five times over that span. Give him a look.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/12/17 8:18pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel is an 'every-down receiver,' according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Gabriel said he wants to show he is more than just a deep threat.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has emerged as a big-play weapon in Atlanta's offense, notching six touchdowns in his final eight games. Consider him a high-upside WR3 in the divisional round.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/11/17 2:22pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Jones has dealt with the injury for several weeks but should be ready to play against the Seattle Seahawks. He will be facing a tough defense this week but should still be considered aa No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/11/17 2:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has received two weeks to rest his foot and appears to be on track to play in the Divisional Round. He should receive a solid amount of targets during the game but should only be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option because of the tough matchup.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 1/2/17 3:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) is expected to participate in practice this week, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel probably will be limited this week so the team can give him extra time to recover from his foot injury. Gabriel should see a decent amount of targets in the Divisional round playoff game and could be a flex option in daily fantasy leagues next week.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB
    Posted 1/1/17 10:28pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 12 times for 96 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints, and he added five receptions for 81 yards on his only five targets.

    Huddle Up: Freeman ended the regular season with 1,079 rushing yards and 11 rushing scores, while also posting 54 catches for 462 yards and two touchdowns. He will be a popular early-round fantasy option in 2017 drafts, especially PPR formats, and he is a must-have in postseason pools, too.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 1/1/17 10:27pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) said Sunday, Jan. 1, that he is looking forward to the team's bye to rest his sore toe. He appeared to be limited in Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints, according to beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter, but he still finished with seven catches for 96 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Jones will be an outstanding fantasy option in postseason leagues, especially if he rests up and gets close to 100 percent healthy.

  • Matt Ryan - QB
    Posted 1/1/17 9:43pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 27 of his 36 pass attempts for 331 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also ran twice for two yards. He set a franchise record with his 4,944 yards in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Ryan also added 38 touchdowns and seven interceptions, leading Atlanta to a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs. More importantly, he was a stud for fantasy owners who waited on draft day to take him in the middle to late rounds. He will also be a must-have option for those playing fantasy postseason pools.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR
    Posted 12/31/16 11:47am ET

    Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) is not dealing with a long-term injury. Quinn said Gabriel tried to prepare for Week 17 but was not healthy enough to play.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel appears to have a decent chance to be ready for the playoffs, so owners should keep an eye on his practice participation over the next few weeks. Mohamed Sanu may receive more targets with Gabriel out and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in Week 17.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 12/30/16 7:04am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) wasn't 100 percent in Week 16, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Jones said he expects to feel better this week than he did last week.

    Huddle Up: Jones had four catches for 60 yards last week, which isn't bad for a player that was hampered so much. If he's not on a snap count, he remains an elite WR1 target against the New Orleans Saints in the season finale.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 12/30/16 2:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) won't have his snaps monitored, according to head coach Dan Quinn. 'He looked good over the last couple of days, so I'm not going to monitor him,' Quinn said. 'If it gets sore, then we'll take him out. He looked good in practice (Friday, Dec. 30). He looked strong. He looked explosive.'

    Huddle Up: After playing a season-low 39 snaps in his return last week following a two-game absence, it appears owners can fire up their WR1 with full confidence again. If the Falcons had nothing to play for, then there would be concerns, but Atlanta still has the opportunity to garner a first-round bye in the postseason, meaning Jones should see his usual workload in the season finale. As long as that's the case, he's one of the best wide receiver plays on the board.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 12/30/16 6:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30.

    Huddle Up: Reports have been positive for Jones, and it sounds like he is close enough to 100 percent to trust as a WR1 in Week 17.

  • Austin Hooper - TE
    Posted 12/30/16 6:29pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: With Hooper and Jacob Tamme sidelined, Atlanta doesn't have a tight end worth using in fantasy circles.

  • Julio Jones - WR
    Posted 12/29/16 10:49am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) will participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 29, but head coach Dan Quinn said he is not sure if Jones will be a full participant or a limited participant.

    Huddle Up: Jones should be in uniform in Week 17 and probably will receive a solid amount of targets during the game. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
