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.


Falcons DST wrecks havoc on Bucs Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Falcons DST had a big game Thursday against the Buccaneers. 

Atlanta held the Bucs without a score until 8:46 was left in the game. The team was already ahead 56-0 at that point. Some of those points came as a result of strong defensive play. Atlanta managed one defensive touchdown after picking off Josh McCown. Devin Hester also returned a punt, putting Atlanta on the board for a second time. Overall, the team forced five fumbles, four of which were recovered. 

Atlanta will look for more Week 4 against the Vikings. 


Falcons defense doesn't impress


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) After making a couple big plays to help secure a victory against the Saints in Week 1, the Falcons defense didn't do anything noteworthy Week 2 at Cincinnati.

Instead, it allowed 24 points on 472 yards. And that score would have been worse if kicker Mike Nugent hadn't missed three field goals.

Even worse, the Falcons didn't record a single sack or turnover in the game. They have yet to record a sack all season.

They'll hope for better results Thursday night against the Buccaneers.


William Moore contributes six more tackles


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Falcons defensive back William Moore, who recorded six tackles in the season opener last week, had six more, including two solo, Week 2 at Cincinnati. He didn't force any fumbles like he did Week 1 against the Saints, though.

Moore averaged 5.4 tackles in his 16 games last season.


Joplo Bartu gets a bunch more tackles


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Falcons linebacker Joplu Bartu, who had 10 tackles in the season opener last week, recorded another nine, including eight solo, Week 2 at Cincinnati.

Bartu now has more tackles through two games than he had during any two-game stretch as a rookie last season.


Paul Worrilow keeps piling up tackles


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow, who had 15 tackles in the season opener last week, finished one short of that Week 2 at Cincinnati. He had 14 tackles, including six solo.

Worrilow averaged 12.2 tackles in his final nine games last season after beginning the year in a reserve role.


Falcons defense does as expected


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) The Falcons defense wasn't expected to slow the Saints' mighty offense Week 1 at Atlanta, and it didn't, allowing 34 points on 472 yards. But it at least had a couple of big plays.

Robert McClain made a nice play on the ball late in the third quarter, intercepting quarterback Drew Brees in the end zone, and William Moore forced a fumble out of Marques Colston in overtime. The Falcons didn't record a sack on the day.

They'll hope for better luck against the Bengals in Week 2.


Dwight Lowery makes good first impression


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Defensive back Dwight Lowery, who is beginning his first year with the Falcons after spending the last three with the Jaguars, was among the team's top tacklers Week 1 against the Saints. He finished with 11, including seven solo.

Lowery has never had more than 64 tackles in a season, and those came as a rookie in 2008.


Robert McClain picks off Drew Brees


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Though not even a starter, Falcons defensive back Robert McClain had one of the team's biggest defensive plays Week 1 against the Saints, intercepting quarterback Drew Brees in the end zone late in the third quarter.

It was only the second interception of McClain's career. He also had five tackles, including four solo.


William Moore gets big strip in Week 1


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Falcons defensive back William Moore had only a decent performance statistically Week 1 against the Saints, finishing with six tackles, including four solo. But he made arguably the biggest play of the game, stripping the ball away from wide receiver Marques Colston at the start of overtime to put the Falcons in position for a game-winning field goal.

"You've only got two eyes. You can't see behind you," Moore said of the play. "I'm going to continue to work on that and hopefully I can get some more throughout the season."

Moore forced three fumbles last season to go along with 86 tackles and three interceptions.


Paul Worrilow picks up where he left off


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow, who stepped up as an injury replacement last year to become one of the leading tacklers in the NFL, showed Week 1 against the Saints that he didn't lose anything in the offseason, leading the way with 15 tackles, including seven solo.

He averaged 12.2 tackles in his final nine games last season.


Two lone Falcons on injury report expected to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Falcons should have a full complement of players for Week 1 against the Saints, as they enter Sunday's game with only two players listed on the official injury report.

Defensive lineman Corey Peters (Achilles) and defensive back Dezmen Southward (concussion) were both able to participate in practice without limitation throughout the week and are officially probable for Sunday's game. There are no other players on the injury report for the game.
