Fantasy Impact: Hollins has not played since Week 9 and has missed the last two games due to the ankle injury. The 30-year-old veteran will need to continue to log practice time and show he is healthy enough to return for a matchup with the Jets on Sunday.

The Atlanta Falcons D/ST allowed 15 points while notching one sack and forcing two turnovers in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Atlanta picked off Derek Carr once and recovered a Taysom Hill fumble in the contest. The interception was returned 92 yards for a touchdown by safety Jessie Bates. Atlanta will be in a good spot against a struggling Jets offense in Week 13.

Younghoe Koo made his lone field goal and added three extra points in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Koo hit a 39-yard field goal to add to the Atlanta lead in the fourth quarter. The veteran kicker has now made 22 of his 23 field goals in 2023. He will take on the Jets in Week 13.

Jonnu Smith was not targeted in his team's 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Smith posted a goose egg in a game where the Falcons handed the ball to their running backs 34 times. The veteran has been trending down of late as he's caught just one ball over his past two games. He will be tough to trust in Week 13 against the Jets.

Kyle Pitts caught both of his targets for 22 yards in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Pitts was an afterthought in the offense on a day where Atlanta handed the ball to their running backs 34 times. The veteran tight end has been quiet of late as he only has five catches for 52 yards in his past two games. Pitts will be on the TE1/TE2 borderline in Week 13 against the Jets.

Drake London caught five of his seven targets for 91 yards in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: London wound up leading the team in receiving in the divisional win over New Orleans. His longest reception went for 29 yards while his 91 total yards were the most he's had since Week 6 against Washington. London will be a low-end WR2 in Week 13 against the Jets.

Cordarrelle Patterson carried the ball eight times for 43 yards in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: The 43 rushing yards were his most since back in Week 7 against the Buccaneers. Patterson has been utilized rarely this season with Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier both playing ahead of the veteran. He will take on the Jets in Week 13.

Category: Game Recaps


Tyler Allgeier carried the ball 10 times for 64 yards in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Allgeier was not targeted in the passing game. The veteran tailback has seen his workload dip a bit in recent weeks as he's seen more than 10 carries just once over his past four games as the Falcons have been leaning on Bijan Robinson more frequently. Allgeier will be a decent flex option in Week 13 against the Jets.

Bijan Robinson carried the ball 16 times for 91 yards and a touchdown while adding three catches for 32 yards and another score in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson showed how dangerous he can be as a dual-threat weapon. He ran in a 10-yard touchdown and hauled in a 26-yard score from Desmond Ridder in the win. Robinson has reached at least 91 rushing yards and 16 carries in two straight games as the Falcons have been starting to lean on him more frequently. He will be a low-end RB1 in Week 13 against the Jets.

Desmond Ridder completed 13 of his 21 passes for 168 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions while adding seven carries for 30 yards in a 24-15 win over the Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Ridder didn't play particularly well but the Falcons leaned on their run game to defeat their division rivals. The second-year signal-caller's lone touchdown pass went to Bijan Robinson in the fourth quarter. Ridder will be a low-end QB2 in Week 13 against the Jets.

Taylor Heinicke (hamstring) taking part in a limited capacity at Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact: Falcons head coach Arthur Smith has already named Desmond Ridder as his starting QB for Week 12. After starting the last two games over Ridder, it looks like Heinicke has a solid chance to return to his top backup role this week given his activity at Wednesday's practice.

Van Jefferson did not record a catch on his lone target in the Falcons’ 25-23 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Jefferson saw just one target Sunday, tallying his lowest total of the season since being acquired by the Falcons. The 27-year-old is a depth wide receiver in a volatile offense and should not be started in any format moving forward.

KhaDarel Hodge came up with 3 of 6 targets for 60 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Hodge led the way in receiving yardage for the Falcons' wide receivers Sunday, marking the second straight week in which he has displayed big-play potential with QB Taylor Heinicke. After having only five receptions for 64 yards through the first seven weeks of the season, Hodge has now hauled in six passes for 135 yards over the last six quarters playing with Heinicke. Drake London (groin) likely has a bit to do with this surge for Hodge, but the latter is firmly on the fantasy radar now and should be a popular waiver pickup in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: The deal is a late-round pick swap in which the Eagles trade a 2025 seventh-round pick for a 2024 sixth-round pick. Street will provide the Falcons with some much needed depth on their defensive line.

Fantasy Impact: Jarrett’s season will unfortunately come to an end after he suffered a torn ACL on the fourth play in Sunday’s loss. LaCale London will likely continue to play in Jarrett’s spot moving forward. Jarrett’s season ends with 23 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks in eight games this season.

Scott Miller caught 2-of-2 targets for 14 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons’ 28-23 loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Miller scored late in the fourth quarter on an eight-yard touchdown to bring the Falcons to within one score. The 26-year-old has six receptions in four games this season, but has yet to see any consistent playing time. Fantasy managers can leave Miller on the waiver wire.

Keith Smith caught his lone target for 28 yards in the Falcons' 21-19 Week 5 win over the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact: Smith has been a non-factor to begin the season in the Atlanta offense, recording his first touch of the season Sunday. The running back will need a slew of injuries to hit the Atlanta backfield to see any sizeable change in volume moving forward.

Category: Game Recaps


MyCole Pruitt caught his only target for 22 yards in the Falcons' 21-1 Week 5 win over the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact: Pruitt has received a single target in each of the last three games, and unless injuries hit the other Atlanta skill players, is best left on the waiver wire until further notice.

CB Jeff Okudah (foot), who has been a full participant all week, will work out pregame to see if he can go. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: If Okudah has a clean pregame and there are no issues, we can expect him to make his debut in Week 3 against Detroit.

Troy Andersen (concussion) took part in Friday's practice session. (Source: D. Orlando Ledbetter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Andersen spent most of the week in the concussion protocol, but he was back on the practice field Friday. The second-year linebacker put up a solid Week 1 performance, recording 10 combined tackles and 0.5 sacks in the win over Carolina.
