Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley will be a fantasy steal

The Atlanta Falcons have their fair share of players that will make a big impact on any fantasy league. Atlanta Falcons leading receiver Julio Jones will more than likely go in the first round of many NFL fantasy drafts and Matt Ryan will continue to find the end zone and rack up yards.

Falcons over/under: How many yards will Russell Gage get in 2020?

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports Will the young receiver make the third year leap? For all the talk about Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Todd Gurley and Hayden Hurst, one would be forgiven for forgetting about third year receiver Russell Gage. The 2018 sixth round pick was expected to mostly contribute on special teams, but jumped out in 2019 with 446 yards and an increased role on the offense. How many yards can he reasonably be expected to contribute in 2020, though? Let’s take a look.

Five Atlanta Falcons who could join NFL’s Top 100 list in 2021

The Atlanta Falcons will have eight players on the 2021 NFL Top 100 players list. For 2020, the Atlanta Falcons only had three players on this list – Grady Jarrett, Todd Gurley, and Julio Jones – only Jones and Jarrett have actually suited up for the club. Most universally agree that quarterback Matt Ryan should have […] Five Atlanta Falcons who could join NFL’s Top 100 list in 2021 - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Julio Jones and Todd Gurley land on NFL Top 100, Matt Ryan snubbed

Lachlan Cunningham/ The rankings get worse and worse every year, it seems. On Monday, the NFL Network began their annual NFL Top 100 list which features the top one hundred players in the National Football League, as chosen by fellow NFL players. The rankings are based on an off-season poll organized by the NFL, whereby players vote on their peers based on their performance for the recent NFL season. Also on Monday, it was revealed that Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett was the first member of the team to be ranked, as he came in at No. 91. Jarrett is coming off of the 2019...

Falcons 2020 training camp battles re-visited: The third receiver gig

Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire via Leapin’ Russell Gage faces off against Laquon Treadwell. The Falcons have a pretty settled roster. There are questions at left guard and the pecking order along the defensive line and at cornerback, but especially on offense, most battles are already settled. With such a weird, unsettled year, that’s not a bad thing, even if it does mean there’s not a lot of summer drama. One position that will feature a little of that drama is receiver. Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are locked in as one of the NFL’s best 1-2 punches, but there’s at...

Three players the Atlanta Falcons cannot afford to opt-out in 2020.

We now move to WR, starting with arguably the biggest star on Atlanta’s roster: Julio Jones. We’re in the depths of the offseason here at The Falcoholic, and there has been little to nothing in the way of interesting news in ages. So, we’ll have to make some content of our own in the meantime.

Falcons announce 2010s All-Decade offense, and it’s predictably great

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ From Julio Jones to Ryan Schraeder, this group would shred a lot of defenses. The Falcons have been rolling through the decade that was recently, giving us occasion to remember the high points of the years from 2010-2019. The team actually gave us plenty of those high points, all things considered, but there’s little doubt that a lot more of them came because of things the offense was doing than what the defense was up to. That’s why I was looking forward to the 2010 All-Decade offense for the Falcons, and yesterday, the team unveiled the results of a survey...

Madden 21: Ranking Michael Thomas over Julio Jones is ridiculous

The Madden 21 game developers completely whiffed on their wide receiver ratings. The Madden 21 ratings for wide receivers were released Friday and there is an obvious question that needs to be asked, why does Michael “slant route” Thomas have a higher rating than Julio Jones. This is a question I can’t answer because it […] Madden 21: Ranking Michael Thomas over Julio Jones is ridiculous - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Fact: Julio Jones has a pet llama named “Snuggles” The scheduled start of training camp is so close you can smell it. It’s an intoxicating scent, a melange of hand sanitizer, disinfectant, and sweat. But seriously, is this happening? Is this really happening?! Short answer: we don’t know ... yet. There’s still a lot to be sorted out between the NFL and the player’s association between now and Week 1 of the regular season. One would think they could’ve addressed some of the remaining logistical hurdles over the past several months, but, ya know,...

Falcons records that are unlikely to be broken: Andre Rison’s touchdown bonanza

Falcons records that are unlikely to be broken: Andre Rison’s touchdown bonanza

Photo by Focus on Sport/ Julio Jones has plenty of receiving records, but Rison might hold this one forever. Andre Rison is a big part of the Falcons history book, even if he doesn’t always come up immediately when you think of this franchise’s great receivers. He’s top 5 in receptions, yards, and touchdowns for the franchise, and his relatively brief time with the team was marked by genuine dominance. While his numbers are fading into the rearview with Julio Jones now owning most every franchise record and Calvin Ridley flying up the board, Rison will always be a huge part of...

Pro Football Focus: Julio Jones will lead the NFL in receiving yards in 2020

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ It feels like a pretty solid bet. Julio Jones is lauded around these parts plenty, so it’s not like we need to go out and find new, nice things to write about the man. It’s nice to be thinking about the future and what might be coming next for Julio, though, instead of just reflecting on what he’s achieved in the past. We have that opportunity today, because Pro Football Focus projected Julio to lead the league in receiving yards in 2020, and that deserves at least passing acknowledgement. It’s in an article projecting fantasy success, yes, but with...

Julio Jones should be the highest rated receiver in Madden 21
