Falcons coach Smith not worried about fantasy football

Cover your ears, KYLE PITTS owners. Atlanta Falcons head coach Arthur Smith was asked about Pitts’ lack of involvement in the offense two games into the season. Smith told reporters thatMore “It’s not fantasy football”, adding that the team is “just trying to win”. Not fantasy football? Falcons quarterback MARCUS MARIOTA said that Pitts was double teamed at times, adding that Pitts will get his targets and he will eventually find the ball. Fantasy owners are hoping that Pitts finds the ball sooner rather than later. Less

Factoid: Kyle Pitts

The cast around Kyle Pitts worries me. The Falcons look like they might be the worst team in the league, and that could make it tough for him to finish with good numbers. How, for example, can Pitts realistically make a run at 8-9 TDs if the entire team averages only about a touchdown pass per game?  more »

There'd been a report recently suggesting third-rounder Desmond Ridder would start for the Falcons, but maybe that was overly optimistic.

The Atlanta Falcons used the eighth overall pick in last night’s NFL Draft to select the first wide receiver of the evening in USC wideout DRAKE LONDON. London will pair withMore last year’s fourth overall choice, tight end KYLE PITTS, and provide another weapon for veteran quarterback MARCUS MARIOTA.

Falcons sign TE Firkser to one-year deal

The Atlanta Falcons announced this week that the team has signed tight end ANTHONY FIRKSER to a one-year contract. Firkser spent the past four seasons with the Tennessee Titans, where heMore played with new Falcons quarterback MARCUS MARIOTA. While it’s nice that the duo will have a level of familiarity, fantasy owners need look no further than second-year tight end KYLE PITTS in the Falcons TE room. Less
