InjuryShould return to individual drills

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, who is in the NFL’s concussion protocol, is set to return to practice on Monday,  head coach Dan Quinn said on Sunday.

“Devonta Freeman, you’ll see back,” Quinn said a day after an exhibition game loss to the Cardinals. “He’ll return to play (Monday) in some individual (drills). So, that part is good from an injury standpoint.” (Atlanta Jounal Constitution)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Freeman has missed time with a concussion but is expected to return to individual drills today. His status as a low-end RB1 holds true.

Julio Jones primed to see more red zone looks?

Team placing emphasis on getting top WR more targets in close

Seems to be a real emphasis around getting Julio Jones more touches in the red zone this camp. (Head coach Dan Quinn) said he’s been a real factor there. (AtlantaFalcons.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: New OC Steve Sarkisian has been consistent about feeding Jones near the goal line, so perhaps this is the year he breaks through in the touchdown department. Besides his history with foot injuries, the one thing keeping Jones from becoming possibly the best receiver in fantasy football is the fact he has topped eight TDs just once. He’s a top-three fantasy receiver regardless and a near-lock to come off the board among the first five picks in most drafts.
