Week 3: at Detroit Lions

All RB vs DET

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Falcons offense looked great last week as they cruised to a big win over the Packers. The Falcons employed a run-heavy approach, especially in the second half after pulling out to a 24-7 lead, as they fed Devonta Freeman 19 carries for 84 yards and two touchdowns. Tevin Coleman also got involved on the ground, rushing six times for 42 yards. Most of his runs were highly inefficient, but he did bounce one out for a 35-yard gain in the second quarter to help pad his stat-line. The Falcons lost offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder to a concussion last week, so his status will be up in the air for Week 3 depending on how quickly he can progress through the protocol. While Atlanta has one of the best offensive lines in football due mostly to center Alex Mack, an absence from Schrader would significantly weaken the right side of this line since right guard is their glaring weakness right now. The Lions rushing defense has been very stout so far this season, allowing only 88 total rushing yards to opposing running backs. This stat is of course aided significantly by the injury to David Johnson in week 1 and complete ineptitude of the Giants rushing offense. However, even in Week 1, the Lions were completely shutting Johnson down for nearly three quarters before his injury. Ezekiel Ansah and Anthony Zettel have been strong on the edge, while Jarrad Davis has been an excellent run-stopping middle linebacker. Davis had to leave the game with a concussion last week though, meaning his status will be in question for Week 3. With Davis playing, this will be a tough matchup based on the excellent play of the Lions' front seven so far this season.
