Atlanta Falcons roster updates from training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Atlanta Falcons sort out their roster decisions.

NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons added Todd Gurley at running back and Hayden Hurst this offseason. Those moves replaced Austin Hooper and Devonta Freeman and should keep the offense on track. The majority of fantasy stats should again come through the passing game, as Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley should be the engine behind this bird.
