Harry Douglas had tests on his foot Friday and results were all negative.

Douglas started off Thursday night's game well with a quick three-yard touchdown catch but the injured foot put the kibosh on the rest of his night. The negative tests are good though, so he's got plenty of time to get ready for Week 4.

Devin Hester says he was not happy the last 3-4 years in Chicago.

Hester seems to be enjoying himself just fine in Atlanta. He handles returns, and they want to make him a play maker on offense, something Chicago did not do as much.

Stansly Maponga made one tackles with one sack and a forced fumble in the Falcons 56-14 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Maponga didn't make much noise consistently throughout the game but he was a big impact on the plays that he did affect. He registered a sack, and even forced a fumble in the game. He will look to replicate or improve upon those results.

Roddy White was very close to playing Thursday, according to Falcons head coach Mike Smith.

Even though he was very close to playing, he ended up inactive and turned out that they didn't even need the star wide out. White will now have a good amount of time to get healthy and he should be able to play next week, barring a setback.

Kemal Ishmael totaled five tackles with one interception in the Falcons 56-14 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Ishmael returned his interception 23 yards for the score. Ishamel helped all around in the Falcons' dominant win on Thursday night, but expect a regression next week against a Minnesota offense. However, the Falcons could make for an exciting play against the potential AP-less Vikings.

Corey Peters totaled four tackles and registered a sack in the Falcons 56-14 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

All of Peters' tackles were tackles for loss, and had one of the team's three sacks on the night. A truly extraordinary fantasy night for the Falcons defense and special teams, but do not expect this kind of performance regularly, or maybe even again this year.

Devonta Freeman carried the ball 11 times for 12 yards and caught one pass for seven yards while also fumbling once in the Falcons 56-14 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Freeman was in the same boat as Rodgers, they both struggled to find room against the Tampa Bay defense. It is a bit alarming that with all the success the Falcons had tonight, that Freeman didn't experience success as well. The fumble could hurt his rapport with the coach, but Freeman shouldn't be a starter for a fantasy team yet.

Jacquizz Rodgers carried the ball five times for six yards and caught one pass for three yards in the Falcons 56-14 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Rodgers couldn't find any room in today's game. He may have been the only Falcon to not experience success in today's game. Rodgers is still the primary back up to Steven Jackson, but he hasn't been quite the fantasy asset owners have hoped.

Harry Douglas caught two passes for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons 56-14 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Douglas caught the first touchdown on the day, but only notched one reception after the touchdown grab. He hurt his foot in the second quarter and never returned to game action. Atlanta will have a few extra days to get their players healthy, and as of now, Douglas' availability is uncertain.

Eric Weems caught four passes for 69 yards in the Falcons 56-14 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Weems doesn't have much fantasy value, but in a night where your team's offense scores 56 points, he is going to put some stats. Leave Weems on the waiver wire unless the Atlanta receiving corps undergoes a massive injury plague.
