From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Gabriel isn't getting the kind of opportunities he had last year and appears to be in a free-for-all for targets after Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. He's not worth a roster spot in typical leagues.

Week 3: at Detroit Lions

All WR vs DET

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Falcons passing offense was relatively quiet last week in a game that favored their rushing offense due to establishing a 24-7 halftime lead. Matt Ryan was efficient as he completed 19 of 28 pass attempts for 252 yards and a touchdown. Ryan relied almost entirely on the services of Julio Jones and Mohammed Sanu last week, with that duo accounting for a combined 10 receptions and 193 yards--hogging over 50% of Matt Ryan's targets. Julio Jones crossed the 100-yard threshold here, leading the team with nine targets as Ryan fed him early and often with eight four of his receptions and 95 yards all coming in the first half. Despite missing the end zone again, this is a nice bounce-back for Jones after being relatively under-utilized in Week 1. The Lions secondary has been on fire this season, leading the league with 16 passes defended along with four interceptions. Glover Quin is an intimidating presence over the top, while Darius Slay continues to be one of the top cornerbacks in football. Slay only allowed 15 yards after contact last week while breaking up two would-be touchdowns. Slot cornerback Quandre Diggs has made a huge turnaround thus far this season after finishing as one of the worst cornerbacks in the league last season. Diggs played well in Week 1 and smothered Sterling Shepherd last week, allowing him only two receptions for 17 yards. The edge rushing combination of Ezekiel Ansah and Anthony Zettel has also been very effective for the Lions, with Ansah contributing to three of their five sacks last week. This defensive line and secondary should present a challenge for the high-powered Falcons offense.
