Atlanta Falcons

NFC South

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff told reporters Tuesday that Todd Gurley has not yet completed his physical. (Source: Vaughn McClure on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: However, Dimitroff added that he is confident Gurley will pass it. He also said there is language in the contract that will protect the team. Assuming the deal becomes official soon, Gurley will be the Falcons' lead running back in 2020.

DL Allen Bailey has signed a one-year, $4.5M extension with the Atlanta Falcons, that includes a $3.25M signing bonus, per his agent Drew Rosenhaus. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The nine-year veteran lineman is now signed with the Falcons through 2021. He came to Atlanta in 2019 after playing eight seasons with the Chiefs. He’s technically considered a defensive end, but he didn’t rack up the sacks last year in Atlanta, recording just one on the season.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Cardinals are signing De’Vondre Campbell to a one-year contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The deal is reportedly worth up to $8.5 million. Campbell, the former Falcon, certainly helps improve Arizona’s linebacker corps.

Impending free-agent edge rusher Vic Beasley Jr. has agreed to a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans worth $9.5M guaranteed with a max of $12 million, according to reports from Dianna Russini and Ian Rapoport. (Source: Dianna Russini on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons announced they would not be re-signing their former first-round pick, and Beasley has apparently opted for a one-year deal in order to build on his value ahead of next offseason.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports free agent Austin Hooper is headed to the Cleveland Browns. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hooper, the top free agent at his position, is reportedly set to become the highest paid tight end in football. Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports the deal is for four years and $44 million. This move is obviously a win for Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland offense as a whole. However, it definitely hurts David Njoku's value.

Offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo is being released by the Falcons. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sambrailo wasn't on anyone's fantasy radar even after his week 17 touchdown last season, but the release of him and Devonta Freeman today make it apparent that the Falcons are looking to open up cap space. Keep on eye on Atlanta to see if they make moves for any big free agents in the coming days.

Devonta Freeman is being released by the Atlanta Falcons, freeing up more than $3M worth of cap space in 2020. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Freeman is being released after six seasons in Atlanta. The former fourth-round pick will hope to join a team in need of a veteran presence at the RB position. The Falcons meanwhile will need to fill the void left by Freeman, and currently the RBs next in line on the roster are Brian Hill and Ito Smith, both of whom are not accustomed to heavy workloads. Look for Atlanta to draft an RB and look at the free agent market for potential options at the position.

The Atlanta Falcons are planning to release cornerback Desmond Trufant this week, according to a report from NFL insider Tom Pelissero. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Trufant finished the year on injured reserve with a fractured forearm but has been a productive cornerback with the Falcons for seven years. He is still just 29 years old (he turns 30 in September) and should have significant interest in the free-agent market.

The Falcons have re-signed Younghoe Koo to a one-year deal. (Source: Atlanta Falcons on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Koo hit 23-of-26 field goal attempts last year and, most notably, was one of the more impressive onside kickers in the league. Once again playing in a dome for an offense with plenty of exciting pieces, Koo should make a startable option in most fantasy leagues in 2020.

Deion Jones racked up three total tackles and a pick-six during Sunday’s 28-22 overtime win against the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Jones finished the season second on the team in total tackles with 110. He should be viewed as an LB1 in all leagues.

Falcons WR Justin Hardy caught all three of his targets for 40 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Even with an extended opportunity with Calvin Ridley out, Hardy has failed to make noise in fantasy. He is likely just a guy moving forward as he's been in the past.

Category: Game Recaps

Falcons WR Russell Gage caught 7-of-13 targets for 68 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: With his expanded opportunity in the second half since the Mohamed Sanu trade and the Calvin Ridley injury, Gage has been a solid player in PPR scoring formats while putting up Sanu-like lines and popping a score every once in a while. If the Falcons elect to run with Gage as their WR3 in 2020, he'd open the year on the Flex radar in deeper leagues with a higher worth in PPR.

Falcons WR Julio Jones caught 7-of-13 targets for 78 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Jones didn't have his best season, but he was still one of the most productive fantasy wideouts in PPR. Although his 1,394 were his fewest since 2015, his 99 receptions were the fourth most of his career while his six touchdowns are the third most, a feat he's accomplished three different times. Jones will be a lock top 20 overall pick in 2020.

Falcons RB Qadree Ollison rushed four times for nine yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: While Ollison managed to score four times this season, he only averaged 2.3 yards per carry in his rookie campaign. The Falcons need to make decisions at running back heading into 2020.

Category: Game Recaps

Falcons RB Brian Hill rushed five times for 21 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Hill put up his usual line playing behind Devonta Freeman. It is safe to say the Falcons may be bringing in another back to compete for the Atlanta RB2 spot that neither Ito Smith or Hill could run away with.

Category: Game Recaps

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 30-of-51 passes for 313 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Ryan finishes the year throwing for over 300 yards passing in five of his last seven games. Remember, he opened the year tossing 300 yards in six straight games before injuries derailed his tremendous run. While Ryan did throw his most picks (14) since 2015 (16), he was still a solid play in fantasy more timers than not.

The Atlanta Falcons D/ST recorded one sack, two fumble recoveries, and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons defense was surprisingly stingy in Week 15, and it led to a massive 29-22 upset victory against the San Francisco 49ers. The touchdown was a last second fumble recovery in the end zone by rookie wide receiver and special teamer Olamide Zaccheaus. The Falcons have the Jacksonville Jaguars on tap for Week 16.

Category: Game Recaps

Falcons TE Luke Stocker caught his lone target for a nine-yard gain in Sunday's Week 15 win over the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: With Austin Hooper back, the Falcons' tight ends behind him are irrelevant in fantasy.

Calvin Ridley (abdomen) posted on Instagram that he is out for the rest of the 2019 season. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

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.

Category: Injury Updates

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.
