Falcons | Calvin Ridley ready to contribute

Thu, 12 Jul 2018 20:45:41 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley will have the opportunity to "make an immediate impact," according to Herbie Teope of NFL.com, and Teope believes Ridley will take advantage of single coverage from opposing defenses.

Fantasy Tip: With Julio Jones drawing plenty of attention, Ridley should have a chance to break loose for some big plays. He should be selected in first round of rookie drafts, and he's worth the gamble as a WR4 in redraft formats.

Falcons | Big year for Austin Hooper?

Sun, 24 Jun 2018 20:06:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper "should continue to ascend" in his second season in offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian's system, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper saw a significant jump in his second season, finishing with 49 catches for 526 yards after managing 19 catches for 271 yards as a rookie. Even a small boost in his numbers this year will make him a low-end TE1 candidate.

Falcons | Julio Jones expected for Matt Ryan's training

Wed, 20 Jun 2018 16:55:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be joining his teammates for QB Matt Ryan's annual passing camp that he will be holding in July. "There's probably about 12 (Falcons players) that are going to get together," Ryan said. "And (Jones) will certainly be a part of that."

Fantasy Tip: Jones skipped minicamp but it looks like he'll be part of this effort when Atlanta's offensive players get together. He's seeking an adjusted contract but it shouldn't prevent the star wide-out from being ready for Week 1 of the upcoming season. As usual, he'll be a WR1 entering the new campaign. Despite posting only three scores last year, Jones still put up 1,444 yards on 88 catches. The touchdowns figure to spike up.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley making impression

Wed, 20 Jun 2018 08:44:19 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley is already having an impact on his teammates, particularly his defensive teammates. S Ricardo Allen credited Ridley for being a disciplined route-runner and moving like a veteran. "I just want to see when he becomes a veteran how much better a player he's going to be," Allen said.

Fantasy Tip: It may take some time for Ridley to acclimate to the professional level which isn't uncommon for a rookie but he's on the right track. Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu stunt Ridley's upside, but he's a WR3 to WR4 candidate from a redraft point of view.
