Fantasy Analysis
Week 20 Projections
With just four teams in action this weekend, the Atlanta Falcons defense is worth a look. Last week Atlanta limited the Seattle Seahawks offense to 20 points while racking up three sacks and two interceptions. Granted, the Falcons won't have much luck keeping the red-hot Green Bay Packers offense from lighting up the scoreboard even if Jordy Nelson (ribs) sits again, and Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) play at less than 100 percent. Aaron Rodgers and company have racked up 38 points and 34 points in two playoff outings, respectively. Turnovers also have been very rare for Green Bay in recent weeks. In the Packers last six games (including two playoff contests), they've thrown just one pick and lost zero fumbles. However, during that stretch, Green Bay has allowed three sacks per contest, which is how the Falcons will rack up a few fantasy points. Atlanta wrapped up the regular season ranked 15th in quarterback takedowns.
2 Sacks, 1 Ints, 1 Fumbles

Season Projections
The Atlanta Falcons started out 2015 like lions but finished it like lambs, partly because of a defense that struggled to generate big plays -- the sorts of plays than translate to fantasy points. Still, head coach Dan Quinn, who was hired mainly due to his defensive acumen, told the team's website the Falcons are on the right track. 'Defensively, in terms of the ballhawking mindset and attitude, we're getting closer there, but we're not there yet,' Quinn said. 'Creating turnovers is kind of the next step into that. When you have your scheme just right, the turnovers can come more and more. And affecting the quarterback is a big part of that, because that's oftentimes where the fumbles come. So that's how I think the best way (we can) bridge those two gaps together.' Some new additions in free agency and the draft will help, but this is a unit that's a long way from fantasy relevance.
