The Falcons have been cleared to re-open their facility after no positive COVID results from Thursday's round of testing, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. The Atlanta-Minnesota game remains on for Sunday as of now. We'll let you know if that changes.
The forecast for tonight's Falcons-Panthers game calls for a 40% chance of rain with winds of 10-20 mph and gusts up to 25 mph. That's not quite enough wind for us to adjust our projections for this game. But you might use the weather as a tie-breaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players.
The Falcons are shutting down their facility after getting back 4 positive COVID tests on Thursday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Atlanta's game against the Vikings this weekend is now in question. Stay tuned.
Update: A source tells Schefter that the Falcons had just 1 positive test, and it wasn't a player. That has us a bit more optimistic that this game will happen this week.
Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle) practiced all week and will play against the Saints on Sunday. New Orleans has tightened up against the pass lately, allowing just 5.8 yards per attempt and 4 total passing scores over the last 4 games. But Ryan remains in the lower-end QB1 mix in a game that should find him playing catch-up and chucking it plenty.
Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's fully expected back for this weekend's game against the Saints, but we'll continue to monitor his status over the next few days.
The Falcons have downgraded QB Matt Ryan to out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. That means Matt Schaub will start for Atlanta, raising the fantasy ceiling for the Seattle defense.
