Fantasy Impact: McCloud was expected to primarily hold a role in special teams, but he also saw first-team reps in camp. He is unlikely to hold much fantasy value unless Drake London or Darnell Mooney miss time, but could be a player to monitor on waivers throughout the season.

Fantasy Impact: Miller's signing reunites him with Arthur Smith, former Falcons head coach and current offensive coordinator for the Steelers. Miller will look to compete for a roster spot as the summer progresses. Still, the Steelers will likely seek out a bigger name to help stabilize the wide receiver position after trading away Diontae Johnson.

Fantasy Impact: Ridder went 6-7 as the Falcons' starter in 2023, but Atlanta brought in Kirk Cousins to take over. Heading into his third season, the former Cincinnati product will get a change of scenery, backing up QB Kyler Murray. He will likely compete for the QB2 gig with Clayton Tune. Ridder threw for 2,836 yards with 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions last season.

The Atlanta Falcons are hiring Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris as their next head coach. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons moved on from Arthur Smith and are now bringing in a defensive coach in Morris. The 47-year-old coach has a history with Atlanta, having served as an assistant and an interim coach with the Falcons in the past. It seemed as though Bill Belichick had the lead on the job until some reports came out recently indicating otherwise, and the Falcons ultimately decided to roll with Morris.

Younghoe Koo converted on his lone field goal attempt (30) and 2-of-2 extra points in the Falcons’ 48-17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Koo finishes the season 32-of-37 on field goal attempts and 27-of-28 on extra point attempts. Three of his five misses were on attempts of 50+ yards. Fantasy managers should expect Koo to remain a solid option in 2024.
