Week 3: at Carolina Panthers

All WR vs CAR

FBG says: Good matchup. In Week 1, Terrell Suggs and the Ravens registered 6 sacks of Buffalo quarterbacks. Last Thursday night, however, they failed to bring down Andy Dalton, echoing the dramatic upturn this Bengals line has shown. Cordy Glenn is playing well on the left side, and right tackle Bobby Hart has taken a moderate step forward, allowing less pressure off the wide edges. As a result, Dalton is paced and confident, posting the second-best adjusted net yardage per attempt (factoring in yards, touchdowns, sacks, and interceptions) of his career. And he's finding his underrated weaponry all over the field. None more so, of course, than A.J. Green, who scored on his first three catches last week. Green remains arguably the NFL's premier "go up and get it" target, as well as a blistering deep threat. He's always a threat to produce, or at least chime in with a few splash plays, regardless of matchup. Tyler Boyd, always a ho-hum slot target, is finding new openings with Dalton's new-found pocket time, and Tyler Eifert still lurks as an athletic, big-bodied threat down the seams. Even with a borderline-dominant pass rush in place, the Panthers continue to struggle against the pass overall. Mario Addison, Julius Peppers, and Wes Horton keep doing all they can, bending the edges and threatening splash plays in backfields. But the secondary simply isn't pulling its weight. Cornerback James Bradberry is beaten frequently, and rookie Donte Jackson followed a great NFL debut by losing decisively to Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley. The safeties have been little help, often out of place and outmuscled by bigger targets. This isn't a unit to fear in fantasy - in fact, over their last 14 games, they've allowed 16 wideouts to top 60 yards.
