Falcons' Ricardo Allen: Signs exclusive rights tender with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ricardo Allen has signed his exclusive rights tender with the Atlanta Falcons , Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Allen had an impressive sophomore season in 2015, recording 69 total tackles, good for third on the team, and three interceptions, leading all Falcons in that category. The safety was one of the lone bright spots for a weak Atlanta run defense and helped the Falcons finish seventh in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks in 2015 with savvy play in the secondary. Allen has the potential for a breakout campaign in 2016 as he continues to improve in defensive coordinator Richard Smith's 4-3 scheme.

Falcons' Ricardo Allen: Finishes with 68 tackles on the year
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Allen finished the 2015 season with 68 tackles and three interceptions.

Allen emerged as the starting free safety for the Falcons this season, and he ended up putting together a pretty solid stat line. He didn't make the 53-man roster after being drafted in the fifth round in 2014, but he worked his way up from the practice squad and caught the eye of Dan Quinn. Allen should be back with the team in 2016 as he'll enter the offseason as an exclusive-rights free agent.

Falcons' Ricardo Allen: Active for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ricardo Allen (knee) is active Sunday against Washington.

Allen suffered his injury back in Week 3 and was unable to play last Sunday, but he practiced fully this week, allowing him to return. However, with only 17 tackles and one interception in three games this season, he makes for a fairly weak fantasy IDP option in most leagues.

Atlanta Falcons' Ricardo Allen Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ricardo Allen (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, the Atlanta Falcons ' official site reports.

Allen emerged from the Falcons' Week 3 tilt with a knee injury, which held him out Sunday against the Texans. Following back-to-back limited showings to start this week, though, he's on pace to return to action for this Sunday's game versus Washington. If he suits up, he'll assume free-safety duties, as he looks to augment his 17 tackles (15 solo) and one interception from the first three contests.
