Jason Snelling Injury Update: Probable Status Shouldn't Affect Low Fantasy Value

Jason Snelling is probable for Week 1 against the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons RB Jason Snelling (calf) is officially listed as probable for Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The third-string back missed nearly the entire training camp with a lower right leg injury. He returned to practice this week and was limited on Wednesday, but was a full participant Thursday and Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Snelling had some minor PPR value the past two years, and was looking to get more snaps as the Falcons ease up on Michael Turner's workload, but he's a distant third on the depth chart behind Turner and Jacquizz Rodgers. Either of those guys are much safer fantasy plays this week than Snelling.
