Harry Douglas (foot) is listed as probable for Week 13.

He could see a slight uptick in usage with Roddy White (questionable, ankle) hobbled. Unfortunately, Douglas hasn't been a fantasy contributor all year.
Nov 28 - 2:46 PM

Falcons activated SS William Moore from the injured reserve-designated for return list.

They waived OT Cameron Bradfield to make room. Moore has been out since Week 4 with a shoulder separation. He should immediately slide back in as Atlanta's starting strong safety. Moore is solid IDP producer when healthy.

Falcons coach Mike Smith said Friday he is "confident" Roddy White (ankle, questionable) will play Sunday against the Cardinals despite missing every practice session this week.

It does look like White will be out there against the Cardinals, but in the past Roddy has cautioned against starting him in fantasy leagues when he's unable to practice. "He did work with our (athletic performance) people today and got good reports on where he was in terms of moving around," said Smith. "I feel confident, still, that he'll play on Sunday." Fantasy owners have a tough decision to make. The matchup won't be easy for White against red-hot LCB Patrick Peterson, and especially not if Roddy is short of full health.

Roddy White (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Cardinals.

White played his normal complement of snaps last week but hasn't practiced at all this week. On Friday, he was on the field without his helmet and limited to stretching and individual drills. White was already set for a tough matchup against Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie. He's more of a WR3 than WR2.
Nov 28 - 12:13 PM

Harry Douglas (foot) returned to Falcons practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

The WR5 should be good to go for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Nov 27 - 1:49 PM

The Falcons expect Roddy White (ankle) to resume practicing on Friday.

Specifically, White will do "some" work. Coach Mike Smith didn't comment on White's Sunday status, but suiting up on Friday would put him on track to go against the Cardinals. White's status cannot be taken for granted, but he can remain penciled in as a WR2.
Nov 27 - 1:30 PM

Roddy White (ankle) did not practice again Thursday.

The severity of White's ankle issue is unknown as he played on 94.3 percent of the snaps in Week 12. Perhaps he's just resting some normal soreness. We'll know more by Friday, but in the meantime owners can add Harry Douglas as a bit of insurance. Douglas (foot) returned to practice Thursday.
Nov 27 - 11:30 AM

Roddy White (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

It's a new injury for White, but there's been no indication he's in danger of missing Week 13. White has a history of ankle issues so his status will be worth monitoring. The Falcons also held out Harry Douglas (foot) on Wednesday.
Nov 26 - 4:00 PM

Harry Douglas (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

Douglas has battled the foot for the majority of the season, but has been playing the past couple weeks. However, he's a fantasy non-factor behind Julio and Roddy.
Nov 26 - 1:36 PM

Harry Douglas caught 2-of-4 targets for 14 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Browns.

Battling through injuries for a struggling offense, Douglas hasn't been a WR4 factor this season, let alone a WR3. He'll remain off the map for Week 12 against the Cardinals.
Nov 23 - 5:29 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed three times for 16 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Browns, adding three catches for 11 yards and a touchdown.

The six touches were Rodgers' most since Week 3. Rodgers' workload should see a tiny bump in the absence of Antone Smith (leg, injured reserve), but he remains miles from fantasy relevance.
Nov 23 - 5:27 PM

Devonta Freeman rushed five times for seven yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Browns.

He was held without a catch in the passing game. Freeman has exceeded 10 touches one time all season. Even with Antone Smith (leg) lost for the year, Freeman is not on the re-draft radar.
Nov 23 - 5:25 PM

Steven Jackson rushed 13 times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 12 loss to the Browns, adding two catches for 17 yards.

A standard week at the office for S-Jax, who is now averaging 3.55 yards per carry. He has scored in 3-of-4 games, however, establishing an acceptable RB3 floor. That being said, he'll barely be a top-36 option against the Cardinals' elite run defense in Week 13.
Nov 23 - 5:22 PM

Roddy White caught 9-of-10 targets for 96 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Browns.

White did yeoman's work on short routes and over the middle, keeping the chains moving in a game where the Falcons' offense was often discombobulated. He's now drawn at least 10 targets in three of the Falcons' past five games, and is averaging 9.8 in the process. Finally healthy, White is again an every-week WR2 with WR1 upside.
Nov 23 - 5:08 PM

Julio Jones caught 5-of-13 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Browns.

Amazingly, the score was Jones' first since he notched two in Week 3 against the Bucs. Jones drew shadow coverage from Joe Haden, with the duo battling to a draw. Jones' 24-yard score came on a crossing route where Haden made the wrong decision, but Haden later easily picked Matt Ryan on a ball he forced to his No. 1 receiver. At one point, Jones tweaked his hamstring, but missed little, if any, time. Jones will be a low-end WR1 for next week's battle with the Cardinals' stout secondary.
