Fantasy Impact:

Jones is dealing with a toe injury, so his ability to finish the game is in some doubt. He has a great matchup with a shaky Packers secondary.

Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Gabriel typically lines up on the right side of the field, which gives him a great matchup with the left side of the Packer secondary.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week. HC Dan Quinn said Jones “looked good” on Friday and “won’t have any limitations” on Sunday. His toe injury is a concern, but he has a great matchup against the Packers.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. After his performance last week, we’re expecting Rawls to carry the load in a nice matchup against the Falcons.

Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (knee) took full practice reps all week. Gabriel is good to go. He has scored seven touchdowns in his last eight games.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) took full practice reps all week. Hooper is back. He’s a decent low-cost dart throw, though he hasn’t had a good fantasy line since Week 9, when he posted 3-46-1 on six targets. He only saw 10 targets over his next five games before being sidelined.

Report: Saints would be open to trading HC Sean Payton

ESPN - [Full Article]

This time, the possibility of Saints HC Sean Payton leaving seems even more serious, with NOLA.com reporting Sunday night that the Los Angeles Rams are expected to seek permission to speak with Payton and that Saints general manager Mickey Loomis would be open to a trade.

A source told ESPN that Payton and Loomis met on the subject following Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons and will continue meeting into the week. For any deal to be struck, it would have to be considered a win-win-win for the Saints, Rams and Payton, as Loomis and Saints owner Tom Benson really have ultimate control.

Fantasy Impact:

The Saints signed Payton to a five-year contract extension worth more than $9 million per year this past offseason, and multiple sources have told ESPN that they are happy with the direction the team has been headed this year. But, they won't force Payton to stay if he wants to leave.

Falcons WR Julio Jones sees limited snaps

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Julio Jones didn't push his injured toe in Saturday's game versus the Panthers. The Atlanta Falcons didn't need him to, handling Carolina 33-16. The receiver was mindful of bigger games coming up on the schedule.

"I was good throughout the whole game, but I was just trying to be careful," Jones said, per ESPN's Vaughn McClure. "I was just in and out, not trying to let that flame up. I wasn't [on a limit]. It was just how I felt. I'm not going to put myself in a situation to hurt the team."

Fantasy Impact:

Jones played the fewest snaps in a game he's started this season, seeing 39 of 63 offensive plays. He still ended up leading the Falcons with 60 receiving yards on four catches, as Matt Ryan spread the ball around to 10 different targets for 277 yards and 2 TDs.
