Atlanta Falcons

NFC South

The Atlanta Falcons D/ST recorded five sacks, two interceptions, and two fumble recoveries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons D/ST had a stellar week against Kyle Allen and the Carolina Panthers. Five sacks and four turnovers with just 20 points allowed puts them squarely in the mix as one of the top fantasy defenses of Week 14. Their defensive unit has been very hit or miss this season, and should be avoided for Week 15's contest against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Ridley left Sunday's game against the Panthers with the injury. He finishes his sophomore season having played 13 games, totaling 866 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. The arrow should continue pointing up for him entering 2020.

Falcons K Younghoe Koo was successful on all four of his field goals and on all four of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Koo continues to produce for the Falcons and his fantasy owners. He has only had one game totaling single-digit points since taking over for Matt Bryant. Koo is on the radar in Week 15 at the 49ers.

Falcons WR Justin Hardy caught his lone target for a 19-yard gain in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Hardy continues to be just a guy on the Falcons' wide receiver depth chart. He will need injuries to the players ahead of him to garner fantasy value.

Falcons WR Olamide Zaccheaus caught 1-of-2 targets for a 93-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Zaccheaus broke out for a 93-yard score on his only reception. He has no fantasy value moving forward unless his role expands.

Falcons RB Brian Hill rushed nine times for 62 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Hill is locked into his RB2 role now that Devonta Freeman is back, which he is better suited for after busting as the RB1 during the starter's absence from mid-season. Hill will have a tough time vulturing a score again in Week 15 at the 49ers.

Falcons WR Russell Gage caught 2-of-4 targets for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Gage was heating up since the Mohamed Sanu trade, but now that Austin Hooper and Julio Jones are both healthy, Gage will have a tough time finding enough targets to produce. Gage will get the 49ers in Week 15.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 2-of-6 passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: In his first game back from a knee injury, Hooper did not pick up where he left off. in fact, he had one of his worst outings amidst his breakout campaign. Hooper will look to get back on track in Week 15 at the 49ers, who have now given up five touchdowns to tight ends since Week 10.

Category: Game Recaps


Falcons WR Julio Jones caught 5-of-8 targets for 66 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: It was another quiet game for Jones, who has now failed to find the end zone in nine straight games since Week 3 while only posting two games with at least 108 yards receiving in that time span. Jones will look to end his scoreless streak in Week 15 at the 49ers.

Category: Game Recaps


Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 17 times for 84 yards with one touchdown and caught all four of his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: This was Freeman's second-most productive game amidst a disappointing season. It was also his first touchdown scored since Week 6. Freeman will try but will also have a tough time keeping it going in Week 15 at the 49ers.

Category: Game Recaps


Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 20-of-34 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: After starting the regular season with six straight games with at least 300 yards passing, Ryan cooled off for a while. However, in the past two games, Ryan is back on the 300-yard passing bandwagon looking to finish out the year strong. While Ryan is healthy and hot, he will have a tough matchup in Week 15 at the 49ers.

De’Vondre Campbell finished Sunday’s 40-20 win over the Panthers with seven tackles (six solo) and one sack.

Fantasy Impact: Campbell leads all Falcons in tackles with 106 through Week 14. He can be started in most leagues as a low-end LB1.

Category: Game Recaps


Vic Beasley racked up four tackles, two sacks, and two forced fumbles during Sunday’s 40-20 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Beasley now has six sacks on the season which makes him the team leader in that category. He is only worth rostering and starting in deeper IDP leagues.

Category: Game Recaps


Deion Jones racked up nine tackles (seven solo) during Thursday’s 26-18 loss to New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: Jones is second on the team in total tackles with 91 through Week 13. Keep starting Jones every week as an LB1.

Category: Game Recaps


Falcons WR Christian Blake caught 6-of-9 targets for 57 yards in Thursday night's Week 13 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: With Julio Jones out, Blake stepped up into the WR3 role and had a solid game. However, once Jones returns, Blake will once again be off the radar.

Category: Game Recaps


Falcons TE Jaeden Graham caught all four of his targets for 41 yards and one touchdown in Thursday night's Week 13 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Since Austin Hooper has been out, the Atlanta tight end position has been non-existent. That is until Thursday's loss in which Graham found the end zone. If Hooper and Julio Jones are both out again next week against the Panthers, Graham will once again be in play as an upside fantasy tight end in Week 14.

Category: Game Recaps


Falcons RB Kenjon Barner caught both of his targets for eight yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Even with Devonta Freeman sidelined and Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison struggling to run the ball, Barner is not getting the opportunity to succeed, making him fantasy irrelevant. He will remain that way next week against the Saints.

Category: Game Recaps


Falcons RB Qadree Ollison rushed eight times for 20 yards and one touchdown while catching his lone target for a seven-yard gain in Sunday's Week 12 loss to Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Ollison has now scored in two straight games, vulturing touchdowns from Brian Hill. While Devonta Freeman is sidelined, Ollison might be the better play over Hill but is extremely scoring needy. Ollison will get the Saints in Week 13.

Ricardo Allen finished Sunday’s win over the Carolina Panthers with six total tackles and one interception.

Fantasy Impact: Allen is third on the team in total tackles with 54 through Week 11. He has an excellent chance to add another interception in Weeks 12 and 17 as the Falcons take on the Buccaneers.

Category: Game Recaps


Desmond Trufant ended Sunday’s 29-3 win over the Carolina Panthers with seven total tackles and an interception.

Fantasy Impact: Needless to say, a flipped has switched on in Atlanta. The Falcons defense kept their last two opponents (Saints and Panthers) under 10 points. Trufant and the other Falcons face Tampa Bay twice, and both Carolina and New Orleans once in the remaining six games. Invest in the Falcons IDP options in Weeks 12 and 17 as that’s when they face Jameis Winston.
