Earlier this week, the Atlanta Falcons churned their roster, swapping a defensive end for another defensive end and a center for a tackle. We remarked this was a good sign for Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, as the Falcons would be desperately short on depth if two of their starters were out.
Well, I have some terrible, terrible news for your fantasy football team.
The Falcons are promoting WR Nick Williams from their practice squad today. An indication of how banged up their WRs are.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) December 9, 2016
The move indicates the Falcons expect one, if not both of their starters to be limited or out on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Neither player has practiced this week, and Atlanta may hope they can get by this week without either player.
Nick Williams was a scrappy fan favorite last season, catching 17 passes for 159 yards. He was a nice short-range target for Ryan and was good for moving the chains. He returns and could step right back into meaningful snaps.
