Antone Smith is going to be fine after suffering a stinger Week 8 against the Lions.

It sounds as the explosive Smith is going to be okay moving forward and he should be able to suit up in week 10 against the Bucs. Smith is extremely explosive as he has scored five touchdowns on a low 31 touches on the season.

Falcons have signed veteran safety Charles Godfrey and waived Sean Baker.

Normal practice squad moves for the Falcons. Don't expect much from Godfrey in IDP leagues.

Robert Alford didn't record any tackles but did have one interception during the Falcons' 22-21 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Alford may not have recorded any tackles in this one, but he did grab his third interception in his last two games. With 21 tackles and three picks, Alford is earning his stripes as a decent IDP corner.

Matt Bryant had no field goal attempts but converted all three of his extra-points during Sunday's loss to the Lions.

A pretty boring day for Bryant as the Falcons offense did nothing to even move the ball in the second half and Bryant sat by watching the punter see more action than he did. These weeks happen. The best you can do is hope that things look better after the Week 9 bye.

Harry Douglas caught three passes on five targets for 42 yards against the Lions on Sunday.

Douglas missed the last four games with a foot injury so it was nice to see him back on the field and contributing. Unfortunately, the Falcons offense disappeared in the second half and Douglas wasn't able to provide any additional help. The bye in Week 9 should help him heal more and hopefully the team's offense will be able to regroup for Week 10.

Julio Jones caught four passes on six targets for 58 yards during the Falcons' 22-21 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Jones' owners continue to vent their frustrations as Jones has now gone five games without a touchdown and hasn't posted more than 68 yards in his last three. It's a tough situation for fantasy owners as this isn't the fault of Jones or quarterback Matt Ryan. The offense was clicking early but the offensive line wore down and Ryan was unable to get anything going in the second half in this game. The bye week might provide some good regrouping time so don't give up hope just yet.

Roddy White caught five passes on six targets for 66 yards during Sunday's loss to the Lions at Wembley Stadium in London.

While it wasn;t the 15-target, 100-yeard performance he had last week, White posted a decent day considering the disappearance of the entire Falcons offense in the second half. White was rolling early, but the offensive line failed to provide Matt Ryan with much protection in the second half and White just didn't see much in the way of opportunities after halftime. The bye in Week 9 is coming at a good time for the passing attack as people will be able to heal and get prepared for Week 10 against Tampa Bay.

Devonta Freeman carried the ball three times for just five yards, but did catch one pass for a seven-yard touchdown during the Falcons' 22-21 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Freeman was really a part of the offense, but did manage to score his first career NFL touchdown as Matt Ryan hit him for a seven-yard touchdown early in the first quarter. Freeman hasn't played as big a role as many thought early on in the preseason, but that has more to do with the fact that Steven Jackson has stayed healthy this year what with the limited workload.
