Fantasy Impact:

There has been a lot of recent speculations that the Falcons will fire Smith, and less than a day after their 48-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta has officially made the decision to move on from him. He had a 21-30 record over the course of his three seasons with the team, and he was widely criticized for how he chose to utilize players like Kyle Pitts, Drake London, and Bijan Robinson in that time, both in the fantasy community and in real life. The Falcons are now one four teams who are currently in the hunt for a new head coach, and they'll likely conduct interviews and narrow down prospects in the coming weeks. Barring any unforeseen candidates getting the job, this projects to be good news for Atlanta's skill position players, and they could have a major fantasy resurgence in the 2024 season under a new scheme if the team can find some competent QB play in free agency or the draft.
