Game of The Week: Carolina @ Atlanta

I know any Falcons players you rolled with last week were a let down last week. Calvin Ridley dropping a zero in front of the nation was a big hit to the already shaky faith we had in this organization. But that means lower expectations and lower ownership.

The Falcons offense faulted unexpectedly but they’re likely to bounce back. I don’t expect them to win a lot of games, but Matt Ryan is a safe bet for 350+ yards in any week.

Julio Jones is banged up so start him at your own risk. But Ridley and Gage should bounce back to their productive selves in this game.

And frankly, I doubt you need convincing to start guys against the Falcons. Teddy Bridgewater becomes an instant starter against an injury-depleted secondary.

Robby Anderson should have a day to remember as he’s had double-digit targets in 2 of 4 games so far and is averaging a very healthy 19.7 DK points per game.

And Mike Davis can be expected to keep his production going at the impressive pace we’ve seen so far. Even with Reggie Bonnafon stealing away a receiving TD, Davis hasn’t dropped below 20 points since taking over the starting role.

Teams to Stack

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Philadelphia Eagles

The Steelers unexpected week four bye may have caught us off guard last week. But there likely won’t be many surprises against the Eagles.

Big Ben may have been doubted coming into the season, but there are no doubts anymore he can still lead a very productive offense.

And as expected Juju has returned to the TD machine we expected him to be. Catching three so far on only 19 targets this season. But his matchup against Darius Slay is worth considering as he has been effective so far this season against top receivers.

Until his week three injury Diontae Johnson was the fourth most targeted player in the NFL. He had 24 targets in his first two games and it seems that when he’s healthy, he’ll be a safe bet moving forward.

Eric Ebron at only $4,000 on DK has as much potential as one could ask for at the position. Outside of Kelce, Kittle, Waller, and Andrews, there is nobody I’d rather play this week than Ebron. His usage has increased every game so far as he has adjusted to the new offense. And if we can expect 5-7 targets in this efficient offense he’s worth consideration going forward.

When it’s all said and done the Conner/Johnson/Ebron stack only costs $16,500 and I’ll be using it often.

Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

I mentioned them last week and wasn’t disappointed. Had Will Fuller held onto the pass in the final seconds of the game last week the narrative would have been even better.

Last week against the Vikings was Watson’s first 300 yard game of the season. And this week against the Jags we can expect the same. I know we don’t have a lot of faith in the Texans organization, but are they really worse than the Bengals?

So long as he is healthy, Will Fuller should be on your radar. Scoring 25 points despite the TD that didn’t happen last week is an indication that he’s still got the same big potential as he did with Hopkins soaking up coverage.

David Johnson let us down a bit last week. But with any even better matchup this week it’s shaping up for a get right game. Mixon crushed the Jags last week for three scores and Johnson has the same upside.

It’s also worth mentioning that Jordan Akins is dealing with an ankle injury and a concussion. Should he be unable to suit up, Darren Fells becomes worth considering.
