News: Getting a chance to serve as the team's third wide receiver with Harry Douglas sidelined by knee and ankle injuries, Falcons wide receiver Drew Davis made his presence known on the team's very first drive Week 8 at Philadephia. He caught a 15-yard pass on the third play of the game and then ended the drive by breaking away from a defender to grab a 15-yard lob in the back of the end zone. Those were his only two targets in the game.
Analysis: Davis, a rookie, didn't have a catch in the NFL prior to Week 8. Needless to say, he didn't have a touchdown either. He looked like a pro on the two plays he made, but with the Falcons jumping out to an early lead, he wasn't needed for most of the game. Douglas wasn't much of a Fantasy contributor prior to getting hurt, so you shouldn't expect much from Davis week to week either. In fact, he might not get a chance to contribute at all once Douglas returns.
News: Falcons wide receiver D.J. Davis was promoted to the active roster on Saturday. Davis will be available for Week 1 at Kansas City.
Analysis: Davis is not expected to produce much on Sunday. He has limited Fantasy value.
News: The Falcons on Saturday waived S Rafael Bush, WR Kevin Cone, WR Drew Davis, LB Robert James, DE Emmanuel Stephens, and QB John Parker Wilson on the way to getting to the final 53 players the league allows. The team also reached an injury settlement with TE Ryan Winterswyk.
Analysis: None of the players mentioned above were expected to do much from a Fantasy perspective this season, so continue to ignore them in all formats.
