Julio Jones On Track To Be Game-Time Decision Sunday

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) has earned the unique distinction of being tagged as a game-time decision for Sunday as early as Tuesday, per head coach Raheem Morris. Jones battled through the hamstring ailment to play in just 35 percent of Atlanta's offensive snaps in Week 11, making him an extremely risky season-long or DFS asset even in the case that he suits up against Las Vegas. The fact that Morris was so candid likely means that Jones' practice sessions over the coming days will provide very little insight into which direction his status is trending. Calvin Ridley would become the unquestioned No. 1 target should Jones be out of the mix, while Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus, Christian Blake, and Brandon Powell would all stand to see an increase in targets as well.

Younghoe Koo Nails Three Field Goals In Loss

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo made all three of his field-goal attempts in a 24-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Koo has now made multiple field goals in eight of nine contests this year and remains a top-five option at the position ahead of a Week 12 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. Los Angeles has surrendered the sixth-most fantasy points per game to opposing kickers.

Hayden Hurst Blanketed By Saints

Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst saw two targets but failed to haul in a pass in a Week 11 loss to the Saints. Hurst was steadily holding onto a good role in the offense coming into this game, which makes this performance odd. Still, the Falcons' offense as a whole should tip their caps in favor of the Saints, whose defense was downright dominant. You can't discount what Hurst had done in the previous few weeks, but there's no denying that this was a bit concerning. It will be interesting to see how Hurst plays if Julio Jones (hamstring) is out of the lineup for a second time. It will be a good matchup against the Chargers.

Russell Gage Sees Team-High 12 Targets

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage saw a team-high 12 targets in a loss to the Saints. Gage's seven receptions were the most he's had in three weeks. The 24-year-old receiver eclipsed 50 yards for the third time in five games and could be looking at an expanded role if Julio Jones (hamstring) is forced to miss time. It's worth noting that Gage saw a similar role earlier in the year and failed to produce as expected. Still, you could do worse than Gage if you needed an injury replacement heading into next week.

Calvin Ridley Leads Team In Receiving Yards

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley hauled in five of nine targets for 90 receiving yards against the Saints. It was a tough loss for Atlanta- and the offense struggled at times without Julio Jones (hamstring), who left with an injury. Still, it was impressive that Ridley played as well as he did. The 25-year old will be another week removed from his foot injury and should be 100 percent as he potentially assumes the role of alpha wideout. The team will know more about Jones' status on Monday. Still, Ridley should be viewed as a WR1 regardless of the injury status of his teammate.
