The Falcons have activated WR Drew Davis from the PUP list and have waived WR Freddie Martino.

Davis will slot in as the team's No. 5 receiver with Devin Hester and Harry Douglas sitting just in front of him. He won't see enough work on the field to warrant fantasy consideration so there's no need to worry about him on the waiver wire.

Julio Jones says he is 100 percent after an illness kept him out of practice earlier this week.

Jones was just dealing with flu-like symptoms. He's fine and has a delicious match-up this week against a very weak Buccaneers pass defense.

Steven Jackson (illness) has returned to practice on Friday.

A touch of the flu made it's way through the Falcons clubhouse early in the week and hit Jackson and teammate Julio Jones. Everyone seems to be much better here on Friday, so business as usual for Sunday.

Julio Jones (illness) has returned to practice on Friday.

Jones was just dealing with flu-like symptoms. Nothing to worry about here. He is expected to be just fine for Sunday's match-up with the Buccaneers and their 30th-ranked pass defense.

Falcons have signed veteran LB James Anderson.

Anderson will provide depth for the Falcons linebacker corps. He does not hold any fantasy value.

Steven Jackson missed practice Thursday with an illness, but is expected to play on Sunday.

The Falcons have finally been feeding Jackson the ball over the past two weeks and he has performed relatively well. The strength of the Falcons offense is in the passing game but Jackson is still worthy of flex consideration if he is seeing the carries.

Falcons head coach Mike Smith said no doubt Julio Jones (illness) will play Sunday.

Well those who own Julio will love to hear that news as the Falcons face Browns on Sunday. Jones is coming off a somewhat quiet game which saw him catch six passes for 59 yards against the Panthers last week.

Harry Douglas (foot) is participating in practice Thursday.

Douglas has been dealing with a foot injury for the majority of the season but looked good last week against the Panthers as he caught four passes for 46 yards which is likely his ceiling as the Falcons No.3 WR.

Julio Jones (illness) is not practicing Thursday.

At least Jones is dealing with just an illness and not an injury. The extra rest is probably good for his usually damaged foot even. Expect him to be on the field ruining the Tampa Bay secondary this Sunday.

Devin Hester (wrist) practiced in full Wednesday.

The return extraordinaire should be available for Matt Ryan in week 12. Hester isn't worthy of a starting spot seeing as he only has four receptions for 39 yards in the past two games.
