Wide receivers Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu left the win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to injuries. Both were held out practice on Thursday. (

FF Today's Take: With Atlanta playing on Monday night, Thursday was the first practice of the week for the Falcons. At the moment, there seems to be more optimism Ridley will play than Sanu. If either one is forced to sit, owners should be able to count on more targets for Julio Jones and Austin Hooper. The Giants have been good against receivers and tight ends, but matchups mean little to Jones. While Hooper probably needs to be started in most leagues, his recent run of productivity could come to an end.]]> 5334865 Fri, 19 Oct 2018 0:45:01 EDT

Atlanta improved to 2-4 on the season.

Here’s your winners and losers for this week.

Jones still doesn’t have a touchdown. Who really cares? His 10 catches for 143 yards gave the Falcons an explosive element they needed. Those catches included receptions of 28 and 32 yards at crucial moments in the game. Atlanta needed this kind of performance from their best receiver after losing Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley during the game]]> 5330527 Sun, 14 Oct 2018 17:15:01 EDT Falcons Wire
