Falcons S William Moore slated for MRI on injured shoulder


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Falcons safety William Moore will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injured shoulder, reports ESPN. Moore separated his shoulder in Week 4 and appear to have aggravated the injury after playing 41 snaps against New Orleans on Sunday.

At this point his status remains uncertain for the regular-season finale against Carolina. Atlanta is currently a 3 1/2-point home favorite against Carolina, according to Vegas Insider. The winner will advance to the postseason.


Late TD makes for big day for Falcons DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) In what seemed like an unfavorable matchup with the Saints stepping up their offensive production in recent weeks, the Falcons DST turned in its second-best performance of the season Week 16 at New Orleans, scoring 23 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues.

Of course, a long fumble recovery return for a touchdown in the game's closing seconds padded that number a good bit, but the Falcons genuinely did play good defense, limiting the Saints to 14 points on 328 yards. They had two fumble recoveries, two interceptions and a season-high five sacks, as many as in their previous five games combined.

Though they weren't at their best with tough matchups against the Packers and Steelers in Weeks 14 and 15, the Falcons have done a better job of forcing turnovers in the second half of the season, and it made a big difference in Week 16. Still, outside of deeper leagues, you have no reason to resort to the Falcons DST against Carolina in Week 17.


Hamstring injury knocks Falcons CB Josh Wilson out of Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Falcons cornerback Josh Wilson was forced out of Sunday's game against New Orleans with a hamstring injury. He sustained the injury in the third quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game.

Falcons S William Moore exits with shoulder injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Falcons safety William Moore was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints with a shoulder injury. Moore sustained the injury in the third quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game. He registered two tackles before leaving the game.

Falcons give William Moore the green light


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Falcons have officially listed safety William Moore (foot) active for Sunday's divisional clash against the Saints in Week 16. Moore entered the game as questionable due to a foot injury. He has 23 total tackles and two forced fumbles through six games played.

The Falcons are a 6-point road underdog at New Orleans.


Another poor showing for Falcons DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) The Falcons were on a nice roll defensively before visiting the Packers, one of the league's most prolific offensive teams, in Week 14, but unfortunately, they couldn't get back on track Week 15 against the Steelers. They allowed 27 points on 398 yards, recording just one sack with zero takeaways.

That gives the Falcons a total of two sacks and zero takeaways in their last two games. They had seven and 11 in their previous four.

You'd only want to use the Falcons DST when it has a favorable matchup, and that certainly isn't the case Week 16 at New Orleans. The Falcons allowed 34 points on 472 yards to the Saints in Week 1.


Falcons S William Moore deemed questionable for Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Falcons strong safety William Moore was officially designated as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, per the team's official website. Moore was unable to practice all week due to a foot injury. He has registered 22 combined tackles and two forced fumbles this season. Moore will likely test his injury leading up to kickoff.

Falcons S William Moore sits out another practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Falcons strong safety William Moore was held out of practice on Friday and will likely be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, per ESPN.

Moore suffered the injury Week 14 against Green Bay. He has registered 22 combined tackles and two forced fumbles this season. It appears as if his status won't be determined until Sunday prior to kickoff.


Falcons DST no help against Packers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/9/2014) The Falcons DST, which had been on a nice run recently in standard CBSSports.com leagues, averaging 10.8 Fantasy points with favorable matchups against Arizona, Cleveland, Carolina and Tampa Bay the last four weeks, came back down to earth against a prolific Packers offense Week 14 at Green Bay. The Falcons allowed 43 points on 502 yards, recording one sack with zero takeaways.

It was the first time the Falcons allowed more than 40 points in a game since Week 4 at Minnesota. The Vikings were also the only other team to put up more than 500 yards against the Falcons.

Though the Falcons DST has shown it can make the most of a favorable matchup, it's still one of the weaker units in Fantasy and figures to be exposed again Week 15 against Pittsburgh.


Falcons coach Mike Smith: Paul Soliai will practice Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith told reporters Monday he expected to have defensive tackle Paul Soliai back at practice Thursday, leading up to Sunday's game against the Packers in Week 14, reports the team's official website. Soliai missed Week 13 against Arizona due to a death in the family. 

Falcons DST keeps limiting points


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) Though they were facing a backup quarterback in Drew Stanton, the Falcons again stepped up defensively Week 13 against Arizona, limiting the Cardinals to 18 points on 329 yards. They didn't have a sack in the contest, but they recorded two interceptions and recovered one fumble.

It was the third time in four games that the Falcons have limited an opponent to fewer than 20 points, allowing an average of 19.5 points during that stretch. Of course, they've also allowed an average of 392.0 yards in those four games, but they've been much better about taking the ball away, recording nine interceptions.

Though the Falcons DST appears to be on the rise, if only to relevant status, it's still not a unit you'd trust against a high-scoring team like the Packers, who the Falcons will visit in Week 14.


Falcons S William Moore will return to practice this week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith told reporters safety William Moore will return to full contact practice this week, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Moore, who is on IR with a shoulder injury, is eligible to return Week 12 against Arizona.

"We will see how he makes it through the week," Smith said. "He will be eligible to return to game activity. If everything goes well, we sure will welcome him back with open arms because he's a very good player for us."


More interceptions for Falcons DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) After recording just two interceptions in its first six games, the Falcons DST has 10 in its last five, adding to that total with a season-high three Week 12 against Cleveland. Granted, two came on what appeared to be miscommunications between quarterback Brian Hoyer and star wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was making his season debut following a 10-game suspension, but still, it's a dramatic improvement for a defense that has had little to celebrate in recent years.

That defense didn't have a great performance overall, though, allowing 26 points on 475 yards. It recorded just one sack.

Because the Falcons DST has offered little apart from the interceptions, it remains a low-end Fantasy play for what might seem like a favorable matchup Week 13 against the Cardinals and backup quarterback Drew Stanton.


Falcons DST posts another solid game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Falcons defense took advantage of a subpar Panthers defense in Week 11, in a 19-17 win Sunday.

The Falcons defense surrendered 391 yards of total offense to the Panthers, including 285 through the air, but adopted a bend-don't-break philosophy near the end zone, as the Panthers failed to score in the red zone. The Falcons force a pair of turnovers on Cam Newton interceptions, and sacked him twice in the win.

The Falcons defense has found their footing recently, recording consecutive double-digit Fantasy scoring games, after failing to do so in each of the team's previous five games. They will try to make it three in a row in Week 12, with a matchup against the Browns on the way.  


Falcons QB Matt Ryan compiled 268 passing yards Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan kept rolling with another solid performance, leading his team to a 19-17 victory over the Panthers in Week 11.

Ryan had a hard time scoring touchdowns in the red zone throughout the game. He got off to a slow start before hooking up with Roddy White for a 2-yard score in the third quarter. He compiled 268 yards through the air while completing 31 of 45 pass attempts. He added one touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 91.7 passer rating.

Ryan will look for his third consecutive win Week 12 against the Browns.


Falcons DE Jonathan Babineaux departs with knee issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Falcons defensive end Jonathan Babineaux left Sunday's game against the Panthers in Week 11 with a knee injury. Babineaux sustained the injury in the first half and was ruled questionable to return to the game. He had just one total tackle before leaving the game.

Falcons CB Robert Alford exits Week 11 with wrist injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Falcons cornerback Robert Alford was forced out of Sunday's game against the Panthers with a wrist injury, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Alford sustained the injury in the opening period and was escorted back to the locker rook for further evaluation. The team ruled him questionable for the remainder of the game.

Falcons S William Moore eligible to return to practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Falcons safety William Moore is eligible to return to practice this week, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday. Moore was placed on the short-term injured reserve list with a shoulder injury, which has kept him out of game action for the past six weeks.

"He is progressing well," coach Mike Smith said. "We anticipate and are looking forward to getting him back on the field as soon as we can. He should be able to start working here pretty soon."


Falcons start well, finish like usual


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) The Falcons defense actually looked good to start out Week 8 in London, shutting out the Lions through the first half. But it showed its true colors in the second half, allowing Detroit to come back from a 21-0 deficit with a game-winning field goal as time expired.

In all, the Falcons gave up 22 points on 385 yards, which was still good by their standards. Their lack of big-play ability on the defensive side of the ball came back to bite them again, though. They had no sacks and one interception.

Apart from Week 3 against Tampa Bay, when they ran up the score on a Thursday night, the Falcons DST hasn't offered much to get Fantasy owners excited. It's on bye in Week 9, but even with another matchup against the Buccaneers in Week 10, you'll probably want to leave it on waivers.


Same old, same old for Falcons DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) The Falcons had another lackluster performance on the defensive side of the ball Week 7 at Baltimore. True, they doubled their season total with two interceptions, both by Robert Alford (and in the end zone, no less), but that just prevented the game from being even more of a beat down than it already was.

In all, the Falcons allowed 29 points on 371 yards. They've allowed at least 27 points in each of their last four games. The 371 yards were actually their third lowest single-game total of the season. That's no kind of accomplishment.

Neither was their one sack against the Ravens considering it gave them all of seven on the season. Clearly, the Falcons are lacking in big-play ability on the defensive side of the ball, and it's not like they make up for it by keeping the opponent out of the end zone. You can leave the Falcons DST on waivers for Week 8 against the Lions in London.


Harry Douglas among Falcons inactives Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Falcons quarterback Sean Renfree, cornerback Javier Arenas, linebacker Tyler Starr, wide receiver Harry Douglas, defensive tackle Cliff Matthews, tackle Cameron Bradfield and guard Harland Gunn were ruled inactive Week 7 at Baltimore.

Nothing doing for Falcons DST again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) The Falcons continued to flounder on the defensive side of the ball Week 6 against Chicago, allowing 27 points on 478 yards. They did equal a season high with three sacks (to give them an underwhelming total of seven on the year), but they didn't have any takeaways.

Week 3 against Tampa Bay was the one good defensive showing for the Falcons this season. Apart from that, they've allowed an average of 31.2 points on 459.4 yards in five games.

Clearly, the Falcons DST is nothing more than a last resort in Fantasy. You should bypass it again week Week 7 at Baltimore.


Falcons DST uninspiring again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) Though the Falcons weren't quite as bad defensively Week 5 at the Giants as they were Week 4 at the Vikings, when they allowed 41 points on 558 yards, they weren't much help in a losing effort either, allowing 30 points on 317 yards.

It marked just the second time this year that they allowed fewer than 450 yards in a game, but their lack of big plays hardly made it a breakthrough performance. They recorded just one sack and recovered two fumbles.

The Falcons DST has been one of the most uninspiring units in Fantasy this season, so you certainly wouldn't want to resort to it Week 6 against the Bears.


Falcons list Harry Douglas among Week 5 inactives


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Falcons quarterback Sean Renfree, cornerback Javier Arenas, linebacker Tyler Starr, guard Justin Blalock, tackle Cameron Bradfield, wide receiver Harry Douglas and defensive lineman Cliff Matthews were all ruled inactive Week 5 at N.Y. Giants.

Falcons DST shows its true colors


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) One week after stunning Tampa Bay with a dominant performance in which they scored two touchdowns on the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons were back to their old tricks Week 4 at Minnesota. Against a rookie quarterback making his first career start, they allowed a season-high 41 points on a season-high 558 yards, and for the second time this season, they didn't record a sack or interception.

The Falcons have now allowed 450-plus yards in three of their four games. The one exception was that Thursday night game against the Buccaneers.

Don't let that game shape your perception of the Falcons DST. It's one of the worst units in Fantasy, and you should avoid it for Week 5 at the Giants.
