Falcons' Tevin Coleman: Fails to return after injuring hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman didn't return to Sunday's game against the Chargers after exiting in the third quarter with a hamstring injury.

Coleman impressed prior to his exit, gaining 64 yards on eight carries and 10 yards on one reception, highlighted by a 30-yard touchdown run that demonstrated his blazing speed. Devonta Freeman dominated the workload after Coleman's exit, ultimately finishing with 15 carries for 58 yards and five receptions (on six targets) for 42 yards. If Coleman isn't ready for Week 8 against the Packers, we'll likely see a heavy dose of Freeman, with Terron Ward likely getting a call up from the practice squad to serve as the backup.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Quiet in loss to the Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu caught two of four targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Chargers.

Outside of an 11-yard catch, Sanu was not a factor, although Julio Jones was the only pass catcher to do anything for the Falcons, grabbing nine of 15 targets for 174 yards. If you need to use Sanu next week, he'll face the Packers at home.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Racks up 100 yards from scrimmage in loss to San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman had 15 carries for 58 yards and caught five of six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Chargers.

Freeman was having a quiet game as a runner, until he ripped off a couple of nifty runs in the second half. Meanwhile, Tevin Coleman had eight carries for 64 yards and a touchdown, but left in the second half with a hamstring injury and did not return. If Coleman was forced to miss time, Freeman's value would obviously increase. Next up for Freeman are the Packers in Week 8.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Explodes again for 174 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones caught nine of 15 targets for 174 yards in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Chargers.

Jones went over 100 yards in the first half, aided by a gorgeous 50-yard rainbow pass from Matt Ryan. He was quiet in the second half though, until he caught two passes for 35 yards in the closing seconds to set up a potential game-winning field goal. Matt Bryant missed the kick, however, and Jones did not see the ball in overtime. The explosive wideout has been on a tear in general lately, with three 100-yard receiving games in his last four, including his monstrous 300-yard performance in Week 4. He should be in line for another productive game next week against the Packers.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Tosses costly interception in overtime loss to San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan completed 22 of 34 passes for 273 yards, with a touchdown and interception in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Chargers.

Ryan didn't play poorly, but threw an ill-advised interception late in the fourth quarter, which helped set up San Diego for a game-tying field goal. In the closing seconds, it looked like the veteran QB made up for his miscue, hooking up with Julio Jones two times for 35 yards, but Matt Bryant missed the game-winning field goal as time expired. In overtime, Ryan could not move the ball, getting stuffed on a rushing attempt on 3rd and 1. On a positive note, Ryan established an NFL record with his 46th straight 200-yard passing game, a testament to his consistency. He's got a good chance to bounce back next week against the Packers.
