Ryan played quite well in his first game without Julio Jones, throwing for 273 yards and three scores. This is a tough matchup, but you can consider him a fringe starter.
Jackson is listed as probable and will almost certainly make his return from a hamstring injury. It's always a risk to start a guy in his first game back, but with six teams on bye this week, you should feel comfortable turning to Jackson in a pinch.
Steven Jackson is probable, and will likely get at least half of the touches this week. That makes it awfully hard to start Rodgers.
Douglas had a monster game last week, catching seven passes for 149 yards and a TD. He'll likely see more attention from the Rams than he did from the Buccaneers.
White has been ruled out for this week. Drew Davis is expected to get the start alongside Harry Douglas.
Gonzalez got just four targets a week ago, a shock given that Julio Jones and Roddy White were out. After Harry Douglas' big day, defenses might have to allow Gonzalez a bit more freedom to operate.
Bryant got just one field goal attempt last week, which he made. He is 9-for-10 on the season.
The Falcons allowed Mike Glennon to throw for 256 yards and two TDs, though he was admittedly inefficient. Still, I don't trust this defense, even against a mistake-prone Carson Palmer.
Palmer had another sloppy game last week, throwing for 258 yards, 5.7 YPA, one touchdown and two interceptions. The Falcons can be exploited, though.
Rashard Mendenhall is doubtful, but keep your expectations for Ellington in check. The Cardinals coaching staff has indicated it doesn't want to overload the diminutive back.
Mendenhall is doubtful with a toe injury. He should not be anywhere near your starting lineup.
Fitz struggled mightily against the Seahawks, catching two passes for 17 yards. The Falcons allow the fourth most fantasy points per game to receivers.
Floyd could be in for his best day of the season on Sunday, as the Falcons allow the fourth most fantasy points per game to receivers.
Roberts could be a sneaky play if you're hit hard by all the byes this week. The Falcons have been quite generous to receivers.
Feely made all three of his field goal attempts, including one from 49 yards out and another from 52 yards.
The Cardinals may be able to take advantage of a short-handed Falcons team. Consider them a decent stream option.
