Falcons don't get much production from RBs in Week 7 loss
by Michael Hurcomb |

The Falcons didn't get a lot of production from their running backs during a 29-7 loss Week 7 at Baltimore.

Starter Steven Jackson led the way with 22 rushing yards on eight carries. Devonta Freeman was second with 20 rushing yards on two carries, Antone Smith was third on the team with 10 rushing yards on three carries and Jacquizz Rodgers added 9 rushing yards on two carries.

Freeman was the most-active running back in the passing game, totaling five catches for 17 yards. Jackson and Rodgers each had one catch for 3 yards, while Smith had two catches for minus-1 yard.

The Falcons are back in action Week 8 vs. Detroit.

Blank 'absolutely' wants Antone Smith to remain with Falcons
by Michael Hurcomb |

There's little denying Falcons running back Antone Smith has been a fun player to watch this season. He has a team-leading five touchdowns and is averaging 51 yards per scoring play.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank has nothing but praise for the fifth-year pro, per ESPN.

"It’s incredible to see his performance," Blank said. "And it’s actually really interesting because I really hadn’t paid a lot of attention to it, but he’s been to several other clubs in the NFL. You really wonder what it is in a player’s career that at a certain point in time, they blossom and they just trigger and go. And he’s obviously doing that now." 

Smith is in the final year of his contract. Blank indicated he would like to see Smith stay with the team beyond 2014.

"Absolutely," Blank said. "I have no reason to not want that, for sure.

"He really epitomizes everything you want in a team player. It’s not about self; it’s always about team. It’s always about doing whatever I can do to contribute. And he lives that way. He really, really does. I’m thrilled he’s a Falcon and I’m happy for the season he’s having."

Antone Smith is unbelievable
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

I don't know what to say about Antone Smith anymore. I keep pointing how unlikely it is he'll have another long touchdown with as few touches as he gets, and yet he delivered another one -- this time, a 41-yard reception -- Week 6 against Chicago, giving him a touchdown of 35 yards or more in four straight games and five in six games.

The talk leading up to Week 6 was that he might get more touches, which I admitted would change things. But he didn't really. He had six. And again, one of them was really good.

The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I'm about there with him.

Because yes, it's still unlikely. It just is, OK? But he'll probably do it again because that's what he does. So if you're into long touchdowns, have at him.

Falcons' Antone Smith scores another long TD in Week 6
by R.J. White |

Falcons running back Antone Smith scored on a 41-yard reception Sunday, finishing his team's 27-13 Week 6 loss to the Bears with five yards on two carries and 64 yards on four receptions.

Smith has shown an ability to score any time from any distance, managing a scoring play of at least 38 yards in five of his six games this season. As a result, he's tallied 126 yards on just 13 carries and 220 yards on just 10 receptions while reaching the end zone five times. It's going to be hard for the coaching staff to keep limiting his workload if he keeps delivering big plays on a regular basis. Smith will take on the Ravens in Week 7.

Time to roll the dice on Antone Smith?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The movement to get Antone Smith more playing time seems to be in full swing, at least judging by the attention the media has given it. And often in these cases, where there's smoke, there's fire.

It makes Smith an interesting Fantasy possibility for Week 6 against Chicago. With so many high-profile running backs succumbing to injuries over the last couple weeks, you may be pretty desperate for a consistent running back. And a boom-or-bust play seems pretty consistent when he booms four out of the first five weeks.

In theory, more touches would give Smith an even better chance of booming each week, but that's assuming these touchdown plays of 35 yards or more are as much a reflection of his God-given talent as the attention defenses pay him. And that's where I'm skeptical. He's 29 years old, for crying out loud. If he's really the best big-play back in NFL history, someone would have figured it out by now. 

I'm worried the week I finally endorse him is the week it catches up to him. Because unless he legitimately enters some sort of timeshare with Jackson, you know it's coming. And for all the talk of an increased role, he's still one of four and not the No. 1 of four. Sooner or later, he's going to bust.
