After the departure of Devonta Freeman, the Atlanta Falcons will hand over the starting job to a former Georgia Bulldog, Todd Gurley. He will look to prove he is healthy and can still be a strong starting back in this league. The passing attack continues to be one of the best in the league with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley as the WR1 and WR2. However Atlanta doesn’t have ton of depth behind them with Russell Gage and Laquon Treadwell. The Falcons traded for Hayden Hurst after Austin Hooper left to the Cleveland Browns. This will be Hurst’s first time as a start in the league.

Atlanta Falcons Depth Chart FAQ

The Atlanta Falcons offense continues to churn out strong seasons both in fantasy and in real life. While they have some aging stars like Julio Jones and Matt Ryan, Calvin Ridley has slid into big numbers since being drafted two years ago. One of the major signings over the offseason was Todd Gurley, who comes to Atlanta on a one-year deal and will try to prove he is healthy and ready to post-prime numbers. Injuries have rattled the defensive depth chart over the last two seasons and hope for better health in the upcoming season.

Is Hayden Hurst The Starting In Atlanta?

After being traded from the Baltimore Ravens, Hayden Hurst has landed a starting gig with the Atlanta Falcons. They saw Austin Hooper leave during free agency and had little depth behind him, resulting in Hurst coming to Atlanta.

Who Is The Falcons Third Wide Receiver?

Russell Gage is the Falcons third wide receiver behind Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley. Gage is on the younger side and was drafted in the 6th round back in 2018 out of LSU. Gage saw 74 targets in the 2019 season as he filled in towards the end of the year.

Do The Falcons Start Any Rookies?

After drafting AJ Terrell in the first round, the Atlanta Falcons will turn to him as a starting cornerback in year one. Atlanta needed help in the secondary as their pass defense struggled to shut down opposing offenses.

Who Is The Best Offensive Lineman On The Falcons?

Alex Mack is a long time veteran and the starting center for the Atlanta Falcons. Mack has been to six Pro Bowls and is touted as one of the best centers in football. He leads a fairly young Atlanta offensive line.

Who Backs Up Todd Gurley?

Brian Hill and Ito Smith are the backups to Todd Gurley. After Devonta Freeman's injuries over the last few seasons, neither has shown great strides into being a strong NFL back. Atlanta will need a healthy season out of Gurley.

Who Are The Falcons Starting Linebackers?

Dante Fowler, Deion Jones, and Foyesade Oluokun are the starting linebackers for the Atlanta Falcons. Jones is considered to be one of the top linebackers in the game, while Dante Fowler has moved around of late, but produced solid pass-rushing numbers.
