Austin Hooper Underwhelms In First Game Back

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper (knee) returned to the field in Week 14 after missing the team's past three games. While it was encouraging to see him get six targets in his first game back, he turned in his lowest-scoring fantasy output of the season, catching just two passes for 32 yards. The Falcons were able to run the ball better than usual in this game and they weren't chasing points on the scoreboard so quarterback Matt Ryan only had to throw 34 passes in the game, a low number for him. Hooper will look to bounce-back against the 49ers in Week 15 and he'll be a must-start tight end once again.

Matt Ryan Throws for 313 Yards And Two Scores In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a solid outing in Week 14 against the Panthers. He completed 20-of-34 passes for 313 yards and two touchdowns in the game. He didn't give commit a turnover in the game and was only sacked once. Ryan had all of his primary pass-catchers active for the game as Julio Jones (shoulder) returned from a one-game absence and Austin Hooper (knee) suited up for the first time since Week 10. Ryan's next matchup is a tougher one against the 49ers in San Francisco.

Brian Hill Scores Touchdown In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons running back Brian Hill had a solid game in Week 14, serving as the team's No. 2 back behind Devonta Freeman. Hill rushed the ball nine times for 62 yards and scored his third touchdown of the year. Freeman saw 17 carries in the game and also had four catches while Hill didn't earn a single target through the air. The game was a bit of an anomaly for Hill, who entered the game averaging 2.8 yards per carry on the year before averaging 6.9 yards per carry in the game. Hill can remain on waivers in just about all leagues as he's not a reliable fantasy option while Freeman is healthy.

Devonta Freeman Rushes For 84 Yards And A Touchdown

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman carried the ball 17 times for 84 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Panthers. He also added four catches on four targets for 10 yards. Freeman dominated the carries as usual for the Falcons, with Brian Hill earning nine carries and Qadree Ollison earning four. Freeman's heavy workload makes him a decent RB2 on a weekly basis at this point and he's especially valuable in PPR due to his heavy involvement in the Falcons pass game.

Calvin Ridley Stays Hot With 76 Yards And A Touchdown

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley has been on fire over the past month. In Week 14, he caught all five of his targets for 76 yards and a touchdown. This was his third touchdown in his past four games. In each of those four games, he's caught at least five passes for at least 75 yards. Julio Jones led the team with eight targets in Week 14 and finished with five catches for 66 yards without a touchdown. Ridley has now outscored Jones in each of the past three games in which they have both played. Ridley is a fantastic WR2 right now who should be locked into your lineup, even with a tough 49ers Defense ahead in Week 15.
