10/23:The Atlanta Falcons defense was not able to make the most of the pressure they got on Eli Manning in the game Monday. The Falcons seemed to have Manning in their sights a lot but only ended up with four sacks and did not manage to force a turnover of any kind. This was the joint-second highest total the Falcons defense have scored this season but that is not saying much given how poorly they have played this season. Until we see otherwise the Falcons defense remains a group to avoid for fantasy leagues--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
10/23:Atlanta Falcons kicker Giorgio Tavecchio had a decent first outing in an Atlanta Falcons uniform. Facing the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, the left-footed kicker converted all three of his field goal opportunities, including a long of 56 yards, and both of his extra points. With two 50-yard field goals and a 40-yarder Tavecchio had a superb fantasy point return in leagues which reward length of kick. As long as Matt Bryant is unavailable Tavecchio will remain a solid option for fantasy owners.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had a disappointing day against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Coming into the week Sanu had been limited in practice with a hip injury so it is no surprise to see him have a limited number of targets. Sanu saw just two targets, both of which he caught for just 21 yards for an all around miserable day for fantasy owners. With three major receiving weapons and the likes of Austin Hooper and Marvin Hall in the offense it is going to be hard to predict Sanu's output week-to-week. Therefore, Sanu remains at best a bye week fill in options in deeper fantasy leagues and he has very little value in 10- or 12-team fantasy leagues.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley had a mediocre day against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Ridley caught five of his six targets for 43 yards. Other than the game against the Saints where he had 143 yards this has been a typical day for Ridley this season. If Ridley had found the end zone then this would have been a fine day with over 10 fantasy points. However, in standard scoring leagues this is a rather disappointing day for Ridley's fantasy owners. Ridley will remain a boom-or-bust fantasy options but it has now been three game since he has found the end zone. With a bye week coming up the Falcons will be hoping Ridley can get fully healthy to be a weapon in the second half of the season.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper was not able to find the end zone against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. The Falcons tight end managed to catch three of his four targets for 48 yards, meaning he was not a complete dud for fantasy owners. However, Hooper's value generally lies in touchdown catches and he was close to having one in this game. Hooper used his body well to get an advantage of the covering corner but Matt Ryan's pass was behind the tight end, and he was unable to pull it in for what would have been a certain touchdown. Coming out of the bye week Hooper will remain a tight end who hovers around the top-10 for fantasy owners. However, without a great matchup he is going to need a touchdown to make the top-10.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Marvin Hall got himself on the score sheet Monday night against the New York Giants. Hall was always likely to see a little more time on the field with Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley a little banged up this week. Whenever Hall is on the field he is a threat to break a big one and he managed to sail past his coverage and catch a 47-yard deep bomb in the end zone. Hall was not a big part of the offense, catching all three of his targets for 63 yards. However, there were times in this game where Hall and Justin Hardy were the only two receivers on the field. Hall is unlikely to have regular fantasy value this year but in best ball leagues he will have the odd performance like this that gets him into your lineup.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones broke through the 100-yard receiving mark for the fourth time this season against the New York Giants. Jones caught nine of his 12 targets for 104 yards as Matt Ryan looked his way regularly on Monday. The day could have been even better if Ryan had managed to get decent footing on a deep bomb. Instead, Ryan was hindered due to his lineman being driven back into him, and under threw the ball. However, Jones did a great job working back to the ball and drawing a penalty from a panicking defender. Once again Jones failed to find the end zone this week but he had another solid day regardless. Jones remains a must-start fantasy receiver after the bye week.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons running back Ito Smith had an ineffective outing against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Smith is set to be the number two in the run game for the remainder of the season with Devonta Freeman on injured reserve. However, this performance will not have done him many favors. Smith rushed the ball seven times for just 16 yards, with a longest run of six yards. He did manage to add two receptions for 29 yards on his only two targets of the game. Smith came into this game with fantasy value based solely on his short-yardage rushing touchdowns. However, the Falcons never really got in close enough for us to see if Smith is going to continue seeing the goal-line work.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman had a mixed night against the New York Giant on Monday Night Football. The overall numbers look good as Coleman rushed 11 times for 50 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown, adding two receptions for 32 yards. However, what makes this a mixed night for Coleman is how the yards came. 44 of his 50 rushing yards came on two rushes, his first of the night and the touchdown run. On the remaining nine rushes he totaled just six yards. Ultimately all that matters is that the numbers were there but this performance is unlikely to have convinced the Falcons Coleman deserves more attempts going forward.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/23:Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan put up some fairly efficient number against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Ryan completed 31 of his 39 pass attempts for 379 yards and a long touchdown pass. It looked like it was going to be a long night for Ryan as he was sacked three times early in the game. However, the Falcons offensive line got it figured out and Ryan was not sacked again throughout the game. This was perhaps not the explosive outing many expected as the Giants managed to keep the Falcons a little off balance at times.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/22:After coming up just a little short of the end zone last week, Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson finally hit paydirt versus the New Orleans Saints in Week 7. Jackson scored on a one-yard run after faking a handoff to Alex Collins just before halftime. He finished the game with nine yards on three carries while also completing his lone pass attempt for five yards. It marked his first completion since Week 1. While the Louisville product still does not possess any fantasy value in redraft leagues due to his limited role, he has shown some big-play potential this year.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: Baltimore Ravens

10/22:Baltimore Ravens running back Alex Collins was limited to 38 yards on 11 carries in Week 7. Collins, who also hauled in three passes for 10 yards, has now failed to reach the 50-yard mark four times this year. While the 24-year-old back had five carries of five or more yards, he was stuffed behind the line of scrimmage twice and his longest run of the game was just nine yards. With Collins averaging 57 total scrimmage yards a game -- which ranks 81st in the league -- his fantasy value is highly dependent on touchdowns and matchups. Going forward, the third-year pro is a very low-end RB2 or flex option at best.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: Baltimore Ravens

10/22:Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who has demanded a trade before the Oct. 30 deadline, would prefer to go to the Saints. Peterson played his college ball at Louisiana State University. The Eagles and Patriots are also showing interest in Peterson, and the All-Pro will likely have more suitors for his services. The Cardinals insist that they will not trade Peterson, but they are in a rebuilding phase and could get a decent return for a player under contract through 2020. The Saints secondary could really use a playmaker like Peterson, as they allow the fifth highest completion percentage (69.0), the third most yards per attempt (8.7) and the fifth most passing yards per game (294).--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: CBS Sports - Bryan McFadden
10/22:The Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Brice Butler on Monday in order to make room on the roster after they acquired Amari Cooper from the Raiders for a first-round pick. Butler missed his only target this year for Dallas in just two games. Cooper will immediately become the team's No. 1 wideout, but he'll have to learn a new offense and could remain hit or miss for fantasy owners in the short term. His presence will undoubtedly hurt the already low ceilings of receivers Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL Network - Jane Slater

10/22:Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said tight end Ed Dickson (groin) has been working hard leading up to this week and should have a chance to play quite a bit in Week 8 against the Lions if he gets through his practice work this week. Dickson has been on the Non-Football Injury list all year but should return and be the team's main pass-catching tight end with Will Dissly on Injured Reserve and Nick Vannett also hurt. Don't expect much from Dickson right off the bat, but he is worth a stash in deeper leagues or for those owners desperate at the position.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Pro Football Talk - Curtis Crabtree
