Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Monday, Oct. 18


NFL: London Games-New York Jets at Atlanta Falcons Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Byebye, bye week.

The Falcons take on the Dolphins on Sunday and are hoping to move to 3-3. We’ve got Falcoholinks to get your week started.

Standouts through five: Offense

The bye week gave us some time to examine this team through its first five weeks. So who were the top contributors on offense? I’m sure you can guess one of the names in the mix.

Standouts through five: Defense

No surprise: We took a look at the defensive side of the ball, as well. Much like the offense, the defense is a state of transition — but we’ve keyed in on five players who have made an impact defensively through five weeks.

Post-bye breakout candidates

We’ve identified the standouts through the first five games, but who is poised to break out after the Atlanta Falcons’ bye week?

What to do with Josh Andrews?

Defensive lineman Josh Andrews appeared to have the left guard spot locked up prior to breaking his hand. The Falcons have a decision to make, as they have to activate Andrews off of IR by week’s end.

If Andrews is removed from injured reserve and joins rejoins the active roster, what will his role be?

Bad & broke

ESPN reviewed every roster in the NFL, and has tabbed the Falcons as the ‘thinnest roster in the league.’ Thomas Dimitroff made many a questionable move in his tenure as Atlanta’s GM, and those chickens have come home to roost as the Falcons lack talent and cap space.
