    • Roddy White (hamstring) expects to play in Week 4.
      Advice: Speaking after Thursday's blowout win, coach Mike Smith implied White would have played had the Falcons not been on a short week. He now has 10 days to get ready for Atlanta's Week 4 trip to Minnesota. A former iron man, White hasn't been anyone's idea of durable over the past two seasons, but is a cinch WR2 whenever he's healthy and playing opposite all-world beast Julio Jones.

    • Roddy White (hamstring) is inactive for Week 3 against the Bucs.
      Advice: The Falcons had intimated all week that White would suit up, but that changed on Thursday afternoon. White should return for Week 4, but the former iron man has now missed four of the Falcons' past 19 games, and played at less than 100 percent in many more. His absence leaves Julio Jones as a target monster, and Harry Douglas as a legitimate WR3. Devin Hester will run deep routes as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver. Also inactive for the Falcons are QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, C James Stone, OT Ryan Schraeder and DT Cliff Matthews.

    • ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure says there's "no doubt" Roddy White (hamstring, questionable) will play Thursday night against the Bucs.
      Advice: McClure has been on top of the Roddy White news all week. Although the 32-year-old hasn't practiced at all, there are no concerns about his availability for Week 3. White is a rock-solid WR2 even against Bucs LCB Alterraun Verner.

    • The Falcons are not concerned about Roddy White's (hamstring) Week 3 status.
      Advice: White didn't miss a snap in Sunday's loss. "It's not important for Roddy to practice,'' coach Mike Smith said after White sat out Tuesday's session. "We'd like for Roddy to practice, but it's all about getting Roddy ready on a short week." Even if White sits again on Wednesday, you won't have to sweat his status for Thursday's game against the Bucs.

    • Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 12 yards in Atlanta's Week 3, blowout win over the Bucs, adding a seven-yard reception while also losing a fumble.
      Advice: Getting major second-half run in a game the Falcons led 35-0 at halftime, Freeman had a chance to stuff the stat-sheet, but instead got stuffed. His fumble was soft, as he let the ball get tomahawked out from behind. Still a clear No. 4 on the Falcons' running back depth chart, Freeman isn't looking like much of a stash in 12-team re-draft leagues.

    • Devonta Freeman caught 2-of-4 targets for 22 yards in Atlanta's Week 2 loss to the Bengals, but was held without a rushing attempt.
      Advice: The Falcons scaled back their committee, only giving carries to Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers. Freeman has done all he can to prove he's deserving of a bigger role, but Atlanta isn't ready to give it to him. He's little more than a deep stash in 12-14 team leagues.

    • Brandon Myers caught 5-of-5 targets for 33 yards in Tampa Bay's 56-14, Week 3 loss to the Falcons.
      Advice: We suppose Myers was a highlight on a night where the Bucs suffered one of the worst losses in team history. The barely-there TE2 now has 13 catches for 107 yards through three games. You can make better use of a roster spot in 12-team leagues.

    • Brandon Myers caught two passes for 33 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 loss to the Rams.
      Advice: Myers saw just the two targets after seeing eight passes come his way in the opener. Myers isn't a big-play threat and is merely a low-upside TE2/3.
