Mike Davis Note

Mike Davis aka "The Quad-Father" impressed in his role as CMC's back up turned starter in 2020. Davis now has a chance with the Falcons to be the undisputed leader of the backfield with very little competition. Exactly how lucrative that role will be in fantasy terms is undetermined. Arthur Smith certainly liked to run the football in Tennessee, but NO ONE is Derrick Henry. Still, Davis as a third RB is a good value in 2021 based on the offense and his situation.

Matt Ryan Note

Ryan had two elite wide receivers in Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, but Julio is now onto Tennessee. The addition of TE sensation Kyle Pitts in the draft could fill that void and running back Mike Davis in free agency gives Ryan a complete and balanced complement of weapons. Ryan is an annual threat to throw for 4.5K yards and close to 30 TDs. The Falcons still didn't make any real gains year over year defensively, so this offense will have plenty of opportunities to put up points. That's good for your fantasy team. Ryan is a "safe" consolation prize at QB if you miss out on the upper tier at the position. New HC Arthur Smith doesn't have Derrick Henry in Atlanta, so the strength of the offense will continue to be the passing game.
