OT - ATL
Week 12 Outlook
Atlanta Falcons starting RT Kaleb McGary has a minor MCL sprain and should only miss a week.
McGary was the second of two offensive linemen selected by Atlanta in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft and started all 16 games last season as a rookie. This is positive news for all Falcons fantasy starters moving forward, and this is an offense everyone should try to own a piece of.
Falcons rookie offensive lineman Kaleb McGary will undergo cardiac ablation surgery Wednesday.
McGary had two similar surgeries in college and missed 6-8 weeks the last time he underwent the procedure. The 31st overall pick in this year's draft is in danger of missing regular season games, but a more firm timetable will be available later.
The Atlanta Falcons have selected former Washington OT Kaleb McGary with the No. 31 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Los Angeles Rams.
The Falcons made a surprise move by trading the 45th and 79th picks to the Rams in order to move up to No. 31 and select McGary. It’s even more surprising considering the team spent its 14th pick on another offensive lineman Chris Lindstrom earlier in the first round. Matt Ryan and the wide variety of skill position players around him should be well-protected heading into this season.
