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.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

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 WR Julio Jones (toe) took full practice reps all week. Jones is good to go for a tough matchup against the Seahawks.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

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.
