      Every team in the NFL has a need, perhaps even more than one. That’s the nature of the free agency age as it’s much harder for teams to keep their talent for the duration of player’s career. That results in an added emphasis on drafting well.This year is no different as 32 teams — yes, even the New England Patriots — have holes that must be filled. But for some, that need is more extensive than others. For those teams, April’s draft could either make them or completely break them.With that in mind, here’s a look at 10 teams with glaring draft needs that must be addressed before t…

        Will everything finally go Atlanta’s way in 2018?

        We’re overdue, sweet Football Gods. The Atlanta Falcons can and often do seem like a star-crossed franchise. They have had Hall of Fame caliber players fade into relative obscurity because they played on a lousy team, became a team that had to wait like 40 years for back-to-back winning seasons, and something terrible I refuse to think about happened in the Super Bowl recently. As much as I’ve loved being a Falcons fan over the years, they’ve put us all through the dang wringer.That’s why 2018 fills me with such a combination of awe and dread. On one hand, they have an opportun…

      • Would you bet the over or the under on these Devonta Freeman prop bets?

        Would you bet the over or the under on these Devonta Freeman prop bets?

        We’d personally hammer on the overs. I’m not a betting man, but I know when a man should take the over, and we should all take the over on these prop bets for Devonta Freeman in 2018.You may recall that we looked at prop bets for Matt Ryan and Julio Jones over the last couple of days, and that a couple of those bets gave us pause. Not so much with Devonta Freeman, who should be healthy and should have a At betonline.ag, Freeman’s over/under for yardage is 960, and his over/under for total touchdowns is 10. He should hit 1,000 rushing yards, given his usage patterns, so long as h…

      • Why Calvin Ridley should succeed for the Falcons

        Why Calvin Ridley should succeed for the Falcons

        Here’s why Ridley should perform at a high level in the NFL. In today’s NFL, speed and explosiveness kill. Calvin Ridley’s got most of it, if not all. On top of that, a versatile, slot/flanker hybrid with punishing first step quickness, great playmaking ability, and quick feet is someone who should dominate any coverage look, especially press and zone coverages. Ridley was generally unstoppable when facing any defensive zone schemes at Alabama, and while the going will be tougher at the NFL level, his talent is undeniable. How Ridley fares against schemesDepending on the corner…

      • The Falcons are taking the right approach with Julio Jones

        The Falcons are taking the right approach with Julio Jones

        Don’t set the bad precedent. I get that we’re all tired of hearing about Julio Jones and his ongoing contract saga, holding out and looking for a new deal, and I’m sorry for adding on to it, but this is the prevailing story of the day.As you all know by now, a major development has broken in this story, with The Athletic’s Jeff Schulz reporting that the Falcons will not be reworking Jones’ contract this offseason and that the team hopes to see him in training camp regardless.Schultz notes that the Falcons have budgeted to renegotiate Jones’ contract and to give him more mon…

      • Pro Football Focus predicts big year for Atlanta Falcons DE Takk McKinley

        Pro Football Focus predicts big year for Atlanta Falcons DE Takk McKinley

        Fact: Takk McKinley once ate thirteen salisbury steaks in one sitting Atlanta Falcons defensive end Takk McKinley was on his way to Contra Costa College five years ago. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” was dominating the charts and I had a lot more hair. A year later, Takk transferred to UCLA. Three years after that, he fulfilled the sacred promise he made his grandmother. Now one year into his career as a professional, Takk is making moves and doing things. Pro Football Focus recently published their list of former first rounders poised for a breakout year. And guess what? Takk ma…

      • Would you take the over or the under on these Julio Jones prop bets?

        Would you take the over or the under on these Julio Jones prop bets?

        I’d go over 1,400 yards, but I’m wary of the six touchdown mark. Yesterday, we spent some time talking about Matt Ryan’s career averages, and the surprisingly low Over/Under prop bets one site had come up with for his 2018 season. Today, we return to the topic, but this time with Julio Jones as our focus.As I saw it, going over on Matt Ryan’s projected 24.5 touchdowns and 4,100 or so yards was a no-brainer, but things are more complex for #11. One of betonline.ag’s prop bets concerns Julio’s yardage total and sits at 1,400, a mark he has exceeded in each of the past four se…
