2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Matty Ice has been regular season nice for the Falcons. Just not so much for his fantasy owners. He is the perfect example of a player whose value to his NFL team far exceeds his value as a fantasy player. Or should we say has been the perfect example? With former offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey having been hired to lead the Jaguars, Dirt Koetter assumes the coordinator position this season and he will bring a vertical passing attack to the franchise and enhanced fantasy expectations for Ryan. Letís face it, the weapons were already in the fold and what Ryan really needed to unleash an upper tier fantasy season was an offensive philosophy that emphasized the pass. Letís dig deeper. Will head coach Mike Smith allow Koetter to unleash Ryan and stud wide receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones as well as tight end Tony Gonzalez on the rest of the league? Does it matter that starting running back Michael Turner has reached the ripe old age of 30? Would you be surprised to know the Falcons, despite adding Jones to the roster, actually scored 12 fewer points in 2011 than they did in 2010? Can speedsters Jacquizz Rodgers and Harry Douglas put together solid seasons? With Ryan coming off his first 4,000-yard season (4,177) and having thrown for a career-high 29 touchdown passes in 2011, it looks like Ryan may reach elite fantasy status in 2012 for the first time in his five year career. Ryan rates a notch below the big five at quarterback this year.

Comment: Repeated stories about the Falcons focusing on the passing have me inching Ryan up my rankings.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julio Jones to increase workload     -- Wed Aug 20 5:19 pm --

Falcons receiver feeling 'no pain' in surgically repaired foot
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who admitted having a mental hurdle to overcome following a second right foot surgery last year, said Wednesday the doctors reassured him his foot is fully healed, and he will increase his practice schedule. (

FF Today's Take: Another step in the right direction for Julio Jones. This is on par with previous reports that had Jones progressing well throughout the offseason. He played in his first game last week and now it sounds like Matt Ryan's top target will begin practicing on consecutive days. Fantasy owners are wisely making him a top ten fantasy wideout in recent weeks and should get a good look at him Saturday night against the Titans.
