The Falcons Defense showed some glimpses of hope in Week 10 and Week 11, completely shutting down the Saints and Panthers. However, the past two weeks, they've struggled mightily and have allowed a total of 61 points. This week, the Falcons have their second meeting against the Panthers. While Kyle Allen could turn the ball... Read More

Qadree Ollison Not A Starting Option In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons running back Qadree Ollison didn't see a single touch in Week 13. The team featured Devonta Freeman heavily in the game, with Brian Hill as his backup.

Brian Hill Not A Viable Starter In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons running back Brian Hill saw his workload heavily diminished upon the return of Devonta Freeman in Week 13. This week should be a similar story as the team faces the Panthers.

Devonta Freeman Is A Solid RB2 In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman saw a heavy workload in Week 13, following a two-game absence. He had a total of 21 touches in Week 13, including four receptions.

Russell Gage Worth Monitoring For Week 14

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage (ribs) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. He wasn't alone. Julio Jones (shoulder), Calvin Ridley (toe) and Austin Hooper (knee) were all limited as well.

Calvin Ridley Is A Strong WR2 Play In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley (toe) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. He's currently questionable for Week 14 against the Panthers, but there doesn't seem to be much indication that he's at risk to miss the game. Ridley is riding a three-game hot streak. He has 22 receptions for over 300 yards and... Read More

Julio Jones Is A Low-End WR1 If He's Active In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (shoulder) missed his first game of the year in Week 13 and is currently questionable for Week 14. He was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. If he can practice in full before Sunday's game against the Panthers, he should be good to go. Jones has had a somewhat... Read More

Austin Hooper Is A Must-Start If He Goes In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper (knee) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday and could be slated to make his return in Week 14 against the Panthers.

Bills Defense Faces Tough Week 14 Test

The Bills Defense did a solid job holding a strong Cowboys offense to just 15 points in Week 13, but this week they face an even tougher opponent in the Ravens. The Ravens are averaging over 33 points per game on the year and about 420 yards from scrimmage per game. The Bills defense has... Read More

Dawson Knox Not Worth Starting In Week 14

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has had a steady role in the offense over the past month, but his usage isn't high enough to inspire confidence for fantasy owners.

Cole Beasley Is A Decent PPR Play In Week 14

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has been on a roll lately. He's topped 70 receiving yards in three of his past four games and has scored touchdowns in two straight.

T.J. Yeldon Can Remain On Waivers In All Leagues

Buffalo Bills running back T.J. Yeldon has been inactive for six straight weeks and there's little reason to believe that streak will end against the Ravens this week. The Bills are going exclusively with Devin Singletary and Frank Gore at this point, making Yeldon unworthy of ownership in any league format.

Frank Gore Not Worth Considering In Week 14

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore has continued to be heavily involved in the team's offense. He has had double-digit touches in three straight games. However, he's struggled to make the most of his touches, particularly in Week 13, when he rushed for just 11 yards on nine carries. Devin Singletary is the clear No.... Read More

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley led the team in receptions (eight), targets (10) and receiving yards (91) against the Saints on Thanksgiving.

Qadree Ollison Goes Without A Touch In Week 13

Atlanta Falcons running back Qadree Ollison had scored touchdowns in two straight weeks going into the team's Thanksgiving game against the Saints.
