  Falcons | Kyle Pitts quiet again    Sun Sep 26, 04:52 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts caught two passes for 35 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He was targeted three times during the game.

Footballguys view: Pitts was a forgotten man until the fourth quarter. He drew a pass interference penalty in the end zone, but Ryan found Lee Smith for the touchdown instead of Pitts. He should still be a fantasy option against Washington next week, but Pitts usage and results have been disappointing through three games.

  Falcons | Eight receptions for Calvin Ridley    Sun Sep 26, 04:48 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught eight passes for 61 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He was targeted 11 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Ridley has been getting the target share we expected, but this pass offense just isn't threatening opponents downfield. He's more high floor WR2 than WR1, but the Washington matchup was good for Buffalo receivers this week, so Ridley could have a ceiling game.

  Falcons | Cordarrelle Patterson over 100 total yards    Sun Sep 26, 04:36 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB/WR Cordarrelle Patterson caught six passes for 82 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 20 yards on seven carries.

Footballguys view: Patterson has quickly made himself an essential part of this horizontal passing offense and a quality option in PPR leagues no matter what position he is eligible at in your league. Keep him in mind as a PPR RB2/WR3/Flex next week against the Football Team.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan throws two TDs    Sun Sep 26, 04:02 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 27-for-36 for 243 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Giants in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Ryan didn't exactly light it up, as this is a very limited downfield passing offense, but it was enough against a Giants team that lost two of their top three receivers during the game. He's still a low level option even in 2QB/Superflex leagues. The Falcons get a win that could affect the order of the top 10 of the draft and host Washington next week.

  Falcons | Russell Gage to miss Week 3    Fri Sep 24, 01:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3 versus the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Olamide Zaccheaus will move into the starting lineup and Christian Blake will become the #3 receiver, but this pass offense will still run through Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts.

  Falcons | Russell Gage week to week    Wed Sep 22, 11:28 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) is considered week to week, and he appears to be a long shot to play this week.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are not counting on Gage much anyway. However, they are counting on WR Calvin Ridley and TE Kyle Pitts...and this Gage injury could push more targets their way. Olamide Zaccheaus is likely to earn more playing time with Gage out of action in Week 3.

  Falcons | Russell Gage held off stat sheet    Sun Sep 12, 06:53 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. was targeted two times during the Week 1 game against the Philadelphia Eagles but finished the game with zero receptions.

Footballguys view: Gage is droppable as he wasn't a priority target for Matt Ryan in a pass offense that focused more on the tight ends than last year's passing game.

Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts caught four passes for 31 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Pitts tied for the team lead in targets, which is about the best thing you can say for his day. The Bucs defense was vulnerable against the pass in Week 1 and that's who Pitts draws next week, so stick with the talented rookie.

Atlanta Falcons RB Mike Davis rushed for 49 yards on 15 carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1. He also caught three passes for 23 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Davis ran well early in the game, but the Eagles put the clamps on the Falcons running game as the contest went on. He'll likely be a non-factor against the Bucs next week and might not be startable if the Falcons offense doesn't build momentum soon.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 21-for-35 for 164 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Ryan threw well early to Calvin Ridley but then the Falcons pass offense got bogged down and never really woke up. Expect him to pass a ton vs. the Bucs next week, but Ryan is only worth a look in superflex/2QB leagues.
