  Falcons | Hayden Hurst finds end zone    Sun Oct 18, 05:59 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst caught four passes for 57 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted four times during the game.

Footballguys view: Hurst's touchdown, which accounted for the majority of his yards, came in garbage time, so it wasn't exactly a redemption game for him in fantasy football even though the result was good. We'll keep him in lineups next week if we don't have a better option.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught eight passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted 10 times during the game.

  Falcons | Todd Gurley has decent outing    Sun Oct 18, 05:40 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley rushed for 47 yards on 20 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He also caught three passes for 20 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Gurley had an ideal game script, but couldn't do much with it against the Vikings. The Falcons getting a win is still good for his overall outlook and he's still a solid RB2 against the Lions next week.

  Falcons | Four touchdowns for Matt Ryan    Sun Oct 18, 05:31 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 30-for-40 for 371 yards and four touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Ryan had a massive game against a Vikings defense that had slowed down Russell Wilson for most of the game last week. Having Julio Jones back was all of the difference against Minnesota. Ryan should be considered a solid QB1 start at home against the Lions next week.

  Falcons | Calvin Ridley logging big games    Fri Oct 16, 09:45 PM

  Falcons | Owner doesn't commit to Matt Ryan    Tue Oct 13, 01:43 AM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has a fan in team owner Arthur Blank, although the owner said Monday, Oct. 12 that Ryan's future depends on the team's new head coach and general manager and what Ryan wants to do moving forward.

Footballguys view: That may be painful for some Falcons fans out there, but this is the correct approach for Blank. A new head coach and GM may not want to be saddled with a veteran quarterback. Ryan could be considered a 'bridge' quarterback to the next guy for the new regime. He has a cap number of $40.9 million next year, along with a salary of $23 million...so getting rid of him is going to be complicated. Stay tuned.
