Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Baker went down in the second quarter of Saturday's game and appeared to be in significant pain. Given the extent of his injury, Baker is a near certainty to miss the upcoming campaign. As a result, the Falcons are expected to accelerate the process of shifting rookie first-rounder Jake Matthews to left tackle, where he'll be tasked with protecting quarterback Matt Ryan's blindside.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Baker is expected to start at left tackle for the Falcons in 2013.

2012

Will provide depth at tackle in 2012.

2010

Baker will start at left tackle.

2009

When healthy, Baker is one of the league's best left tackles, as seen by the Falcons being one of the best rushing teams in 2008. The key words there however are "when healthy," which is something Baker struggled with in his rookie season.

2008

Atlanta's other first-round draft pick Baker is currently being groomed for the starting left tackle job--the most important position on the line to protect a right-handed quarterback's blind spot. Baker's success this season is crucial to the Falcons' offense, which is projected to have one of the worst o-lines in the league.
