Fantasy Analysis | 1411481383
Big-play Antone Smith not worth much interest
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Fantasy owners hounding the waiver wire ahead of Week 4 for running back help will likely let their mouse linger over Falcons running back Antone Smith, who has scored double-digit Fantasy points in two of the first three games. Unfortunately, Smith probably won't provide much help moving forward.

Smith is currently 32nd among running backs in standard Fantasy scoring, but that ranking belies the limited nature of his role in Atlanta's offense. Smith has broken off touchdowns of 38 and 54 yards this season, with those two plays accounting for 20 of his 22 total Fantasy points this season.  Smith clearly has big-play ability, but there just isn't much of a reason to add someone who has touched the ball nine times in three games.

Smith was fourth among Falcons' running backs in snap percentage in Thursday's blowout win over the Buccaneers, as he saw the field just eight times on offense. Though Smith is currently one of the most-viewed players in CBSSports.com leagues for Tuesday, there is little reason to consider adding him.

Tests on Harry Douglas' foot come back clean
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Falcons head coach Mike Smith said Friday morning that tests on the injured foot of wide receiver Harry Douglas came back clean, ESPN.com reports.

"We've got a couple of days to get some treatment," Smith said. "And we'll have an injury report on Wednesday."

Douglas caught two passes for 14 yards and a touchdown Thursday before coming out of the game with the foot injury. He did not return. The team will update his playing status for Week 4's game against the Vikings next week.

Matt Bryant misses only field goal, still puts up points
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Falcons kicker Matt Bryant managed points despite missing his only field goal attempt.

With time running out in the second quarter, Bryant lined up for a 59 yard attempt. He missed wide left. While that was the only field goal attempt he received, Bryant actually got a ton of work. He hit all eight of his extra point attempts, finding a way to put points on the board.

Bryant will take on the Vikings Week 4.

Falcons DST wrecks havoc on Bucs Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Falcons DST had a big game Thursday against the Buccaneers. 

Atlanta held the Bucs without a score until 8:46 was left in the game. The team was already ahead 56-0 at that point. Some of those points came as a result of strong defensive play. Atlanta managed one defensive touchdown after picking off Josh McCown. Devin Hester also returned a punt, putting Atlanta on the board for a second time. Overall, the team forced five fumbles, four of which were recovered. 

Atlanta will look for more Week 4 against the Vikings.
