Falcons Put Vic Beasley On Trade Block

Atlanta Falcons defensive end Vic Beasley has been put on the trade block with the deadline approaching, according to a league source. The former first-round pick is making $12.8 million this year and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. The 27-year-old had a career-high 15.5 sacks in 2016 but had a combined 10 sacks the following two seasons as the Falcons moved him around. He has 12 total tackles and 1.5 sacks through six games in 2019. He's off the IDP radar for now, but he could become more attractive if he lands in the right spot.

Keep Rolling With Matt Ryan In Week 7

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been outstanding for fantasy owners all year. He has eight total touchdowns over his past two games and hasn't been held under 300 passing yards yet this season. This week, Ryan will face a Rams Defense that has shown some vulnerability this year. Ryan and the Falcons return home after two straight road losses and will look to improve on their 1-5 record. Expect Ryan to throw a lot of passes in this game, enabling him to top 300 yards once again with a good chance to score multiple touchdowns.

Devonta Freeman Should Stay Productive In Week 7

It's been a strange year so far for Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman. He's averaging just 3.6 yards per carry and has been held under 50 rushing yards in all but two games so far this year. However, he has 25 catches for 203 yards and three touchdowns through the air over the season, which has made him a solid RB2. Freeman is the unquestioned No. 1 running back in an elite offense and should be started just about every week. This week, Freeman and the Falcons host the Rams. The game probably won't be as high-scoring as the team's previous two matchups, but the Falcons will still likely put up a sturdy point total. Expect Freeman to be between 80 and 100 total yards from scrimmage with multiple receptions and a good chance to score.

Keep Starting Julio Jones With Confidence

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has been held out of the end zone since Week 3 and held under 60 receiving yards in two of his past three games. The Falcons have been spreading the ball around more this year, heavily integrating tight end Austin Hooper into the offense. But make no mistake, Jones is still the team's unquestioned No. 1 target in the passing game, and it's one of the most productive passing games in the entire league. Jones might have some down games with his target share decreasing from previous years, but he'll still produce solid numbers more often than not. Look for him to catch about six or seven passes for around 100 yards with a good chance to score this week.

Keep Rolling With Austin Hooper In Week 7

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper has 23 receptions over his past three games and has topped 100 receiving yards in two of those three games. This week, the Falcons host the Rams and look to end their four-game losing streak. While it's unlikely that Hooper will remain this consistently productive throughout the season, he's certainly established himself as a key part of the elite Falcons passing game. He should be started every week without question until further notice, but don't be too surprised if he has a down week in one of his next few games if the team leans more heavily on Julio Jones or their other weapons.
