Here's a key matchup to watch in Sunday's Vikings-Falcons game.
In this week's "Fantasy football: 21 things," Pat Fitzmaurice makes the case for Michael Turner as a reliable, underappreciated running back.
The Falcons had their winning streak snapped at three Sunday, but a manageable string of games lies ahead.
This week, PFW selects Michael Turner, Kurt Coleman and Shane Lechler as its Players of the Week.
Nearly 70 percent of the Falcons' offensive plays to date have been pass plays and the team is focused on running more to balance things out going forward.
In a game that will be tight throughout, PFW associate editor Dan Parr says the Falcons will top the Bears at Soldier Field.
Power will meet speed when RB Michael Turner runs into the Bears' linebacker corps on Sunday.
The Falcons are worthy of preseason hype, but PFW's Dan Parr says there is also reason to temper optimism about the team's chances of breaking through and making a deep playoff run.
Overshadowed by the Falcons' bold trade to move up 21 spots in the first round to draft WR Julio Jones was the team's trade to move up 13 spots in the fifth round to take RB Jacquizz Rodgers.
We hear the Falcons would be content to head into next season with the same group of running backs that helped them finish 12th in the league in rushing in 2010.
PFW executive editor and resident Packers expert Dan Arkush presents the first of five key matchups this week in advance of the Packers’ divisional playoff game against No. 1 seed Atlanta at the Georgia Dome Saturday evening.
The finalists for the FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Year were announced Monday by the NFL.
While the Falcons suffered a tough loss at home Monday night to the division-rival Saints, they shouldn't allow their confidence to be shaken much.
With positioning for the postseason on the line, the Saints can ill afford a defensive collapse down the stretch, but bouncing back from a poor Week 15 performance will not be easy.
His name hasn't been mentioned often this season but Michael Turner is playing like he did in 2008. In other words, he's having a monster fantasy campaign.
