Given Arthur Smith’s history, we shouldn’t expect RBs to get many targets in the Falcons passing game

We don’t know exactly what Arthur Smith and Dave Ragone’s offense will look like in 2021 for the Falcons, but there are certain expectations that are quite reasonable to have. There will be more of an emphasis on a consistent ground game, heavy tight end usage, and a passing attack that is based more on efficiency than volume, meaning Matt Ryan’s attempts might plummet but his effectiveness will hopefully rise.

There’s one other expectation that we haven’t spent much time on to this point that seems very reasonable to gird your loins for: The running backs not being a major part of the passing game, at least as receivers.
