Insight: Snelling has carried the ball just once in his last two games. He's a fantasy nonfactor.

Description: According to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com, Falcons RB Jason Snelling (concussion) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday.
Insight: Snelling was medically cleared to return to practice Tuesday. The bye week probably helped him avoid missing a game due to his concussion. He's a low-end flex option for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Description: According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Falcons halfback Jason Snelling has entered the league's concussion protocol.
Insight: Snelling probably wouldn't have been available if the Falcons had a game this week but with the extra week to heal up, he should be a go for Week 7 versus Tampa Bay. That's the same week Steven Jackson is expected to return from his hamstring injury, which obviously isn't good for Snelling's fantasy value.

Description: Falcons running back Jason Snelling is questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City with a leg injury.
Insight: Snelling has proven in the past to be a reliable option for Michael Turner, but in the Falcons' new pass-first offense, the team seems to be turning more to speedy Jacquizz Rodgers. At this point I would not draft Snelling.

Description: Snelling finished the 2008 season with only 15 carries for 62 yards in 16 games with the Falcons last season.
Insight: Snelling is way down on the depth chart in Atlanta and has no fantasy value. (SportsBuff.com)
