Julio Jones Dealing With Hamstring Injury

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said that wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) has been dealing with a hamstring injury for a couple of weeks, but he added that "my concern level is low" for the injury impacting Jones' play. The 31-year-old veteran All-Pro often deals with nagging injuries but has managed to play through them and remain productive in Atlanta's offense. Jones caught nine of his 12 targets for 157 yards in the Week 1 loss to the Seahawks. He has been limited this week with the hamstring injury, but he should be just fine to suit up this Sunday against Dallas. Jones is an elite WR1 that is a must-start if he's active.

Falcons Sign Laquon Treadwell To Practice Squad

The Atlanta Falcons signed wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to their practice squad on Wednesday. Treadwell didn't make the club's 53-man roster out of training camp, but he'll remain with the team. A first-round pick by the Vikings in 2016, the Ole Miss product never lived up to the hype as a receiver. He's got good size at 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, but he put up just 65 receptions on 107 targets for 701 yards and two touchdowns in his four years with Minnesota in 53 total games. Treadwell could be intriguing if injuries strike the Falcons wideouts and he's brought up to the active roster, but he's well off the fantasy radar for now.

Younghoe Koo A Solid Starting Option In Week 2

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo is a solid starting option for Week 2. Koo connected on both of his field-goal attempts in Week 1, and both were notably from beyond 40 yards. Though he did miss an extra point, Koo should see quite a few kicking opportunities because the Falcons' offense is high-powered. This week's tilt against the Cowboys could be high-scoring, which means Koo could see a good amount of action.

Falcons Defense Should Remain On The Bench This Week

The Atlanta Falcons Defense is simply not a viable streaming option for Week 2. After allowing 38 points and letting Russell Wilson "cook" in Week 1, the Falcons are in no position to be a trustworthy defense in Week 2. This is especially considering they face a loaded Dallas Cowboys offense that features talent all around the board such as Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, and CeeDee Lamb. Leave the ATL defense on the bench or waiver wire.

Hayden Hurst A Low-End TE1 For Week 2

Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst should be considered a low-end TE1 for this week's matchup against the Cowboys. The new Falcon recorded three receptions and 38 yards on five targets in Week 1 against the Seahawks. With the Falcons boasting a pass-happy offense, it was unfortunate that Hurst couldn't get more in on the action, as three receivers had over 100 yards in Week 1. Nevertheless, this week presents another opportunity for him to put up good numbers, as this game could be high-scoring. As a result, Hurst should be considered a low-end TE1, as he remains one of the top-four passing options on this team.
