Fantasy Football Impact: Atlanta Falcons

Fantasy Football Impact Of The Atlanta Falcons In 2012


Fantasy Football Impact will be a rundown of each NFL team’s stars and how they could benefit your Fantasy Football team in 2012. We will look into every team starting in alphabetical order and see which prospects we will be looking at come draft day.

The Atlanta Falcons finished 10-6 good for second in the NFL South and a fifth seed playoff berth in which they lost to the New York Giants 24 -2. Unlike the first team we looked at the Arizona Cardinals this is a team loaded with offensive talent as they finished seventh in the league in scoring with 25.1 points per game giving us plenty of Fantasy Football talent to draft for our teams.

With the offensive being led by one of the better quarterbacks of the league in Matt Ryan the Atlanta Falcons receivers Roddy White and the young Julio Jones are often seen off the draft boards early. Ryan threw for 4,177 yards, 29 touchdowns to only 12 interceptions good for a 92.2 QB rating.

Roddy White piled up points in points per catch leagues with 100 receptions for 1,296 yards and 8 touchdowns. Julio Jones showed huge deep play making ability with 54 receptions for 959 yards and 8 scores. Veteran tight end Tony Gonzalez is still one of the best in the league at his positions and showed it in 2011 with 80 catches for 875 yards and 7 TD’s.

Michael “ The Burner “ Turner is the crown gem when it comes to Fantasy Football for the Atlanta Falcons. Last season saw Turner rush the ball 301 times for 1,340 yards and 11 scores, he wasn’t big coming out of the backfield with only 17 receptions for 168 yards but will add some points with his few catches.

The Atlanta Falcons will field a great offense in 2012. Michael Turner will be the first Falcon off the boards early in the first for many of drafts, with Julio Jones, Roddy White, and Matt Ryan not far behind. They should collectively wrack up a lot of points as these are all great scorers in the league, and all three could be off the draft board come 3rd round.
