ATLANTA FALCONS FANTASY OUTLOOK

Julio Jones 

Jones is indubitably one of the league’s best wide receivers since his first season. He is a threat to all cornerbacks with his 6’3’’ 220lb stature. Expect affluent production, but his targets will most likely be decreased from last season now that Calvin Ridley is coming into his second season.

Devonta Freeman

Freeman suffered an injury last season after tremendous performance in his prior seasons. His high frequency to be targeted near the endzone is what brings his value to fantasy owners. With Tevin Coleman departing for San Francisco, Freeman is due for a great year and is an RB1 or RB2 depending on your league size.  

Calvin Ridley

Ridley is coming off a hot rookie season and set to get more targets after proving his worth behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. After posting ten touchdowns last year, that number will most likely decrease by 2-3; nonetheless, it will be worth a draft pick. He is a solid WR2.

Matt Ryan 

Ryan is going to go off this season and easily be a top 5 QB. Being reunited with his former offensive coordinator, Dirk Koetter, the sky’s the limit. In 2012-2014, when Ryan and Koetter last worked together, Matt Ryan finished as a top 5 QB each year. Ryan along with wideouts Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, and Calvin Ridley is going to soar down the field leaving defenses behind and restless. The Falcons will be playing 13 of their games inside a dome this season. In his career, Ryan averages 23.8 FPG in a dome compared to his 20.1 FPG outdoors. The Falcons offense and scheduling put Ryan in a great position to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Draft Matt Ryan rather early.
