The Atlanta Falcons have waived Feleipe Franks.

Fantasy Impact

Franks was a quarterback in college, but transitioned to tight end last offseason. He will look to land with a new team during training camp.

Feleipe Franks getting reps at tight end

The Atlanta Falcons are giving backup QB Feleipe Franks reps at TE as they continue to try and use him in a more hybrid role.

Fantasy Impact

Franks is 6-foot-7 and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.61 seconds. Frankly, this was expected to happen at some point. Last season, Franks only played limited snaps, rushing three times for six yards and passing once for a pick-six. The drafting of QB Desmond Ridder and the signing of Marcus Mariota allowed the Falcons to have the flexibility to move Franks into a new role as teams continue to chase the success the Commanders had with Logan Thomas. Alongside Pitts, the Falcons will have two athletic options to use as move tight ends. However, while they are fun, hybrid players never hold much value in fantasy.

Feleipe Franks shifts to hybrid role

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Feleipe Franks has transitioned into a hybrid role in the offense, according to head coach Arthur Smith. Franks, who filled in on special teams last season, has received reps at tight end during practice.

Fantasy Impact

Checking in at 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, Franks is a talented athlete but went undrafted in 2021. His lone pass attempt last season was picked off. Smith noted that while both Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder have impressed under center, Franks still has a role in the quarterbacks' meeting room. "He’s a valuable football player for us," explained the second-year head coach. "He’ll take some reps at quarterback. Put Feleipe in that hybrid category." The Falcons currently have budding star Kyle Pitts at tight end, followed by Anthony Firkser in a backup role. Even if Franks does see the field as a tight end in 2022, it's hard to envision a path to fantasy relevance.

Feleipe Franks rushes for 76 yards against Titans on Friday

Atlanta Falcons rookie QB Feleipe Franks completed 2-of-9 passes for 16 passing yards, adding four carries for 76 rushing yards during a 23-3 loss against the Tennessee Titans on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Franks went undrafted but was impressive with his legs on Friday, including a 52-yard carry on 3rd & 10 backed up near their own end zone. His passing was suspect but his 6'6", 235-pound frame could be used in goal-line and short-yardage personnel under new Falcons head coach, Arthur Smith.
