Week 4: at Atlanta Falcons

All WR vs ATL

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Cam Newton had a horrendous game (21/35 for 262 yards passing; 199 net yards after subtracting for sacks) vs. the hard-charging Minnesota defense, taking eight sacks for -64 yards, throwing three interceptions vs. zero TDs, and eking out just one target for zero receptions to Kelvin Benjamin. Pretty much nothing went right in this phase of the game. Greg Olsen (10 targets for 6/64/0 receiving) and Ted Ginn Jr. (seven for 3/62/0) did what they could, but they couldn't overcome the high-pressure Minnesota pass rush. The Falcons allowed 36/54 for 359 net yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, with two sacks generated for -17 yards, to Drew Brees and company in a track-meet Monday Night Football game. The Falcons' offense outscored the Saints', so Atlanta won, but it was in spite of, and not because of, the play of the defensive unit. To date, Atlanta is ranked 29th in the NFL averaging 313.0 net passing yards allowed per game, and they are tied for dead last in the NFL with 10 passing scores given away, vs. just two interceptions and a mere three sacks generated so far. Over the first three weeks of the season, Atlanta has averaged 29.3 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (most in the NFL); and 25.7 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (12th-most); with 16.2 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (second-most). This is a great matchup for Newton and company - they should bounce back big despite being on the road at a divisional rival's house.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs MIN (7 / 3 / 62 / 0 rec, 2 / 5 / 0 rush)

The primary target of Cam Newton, especially in the early stages, was Ted Ginn Jr., who took advantage of some sloppy cornerback play early on to haul in a 31-yard pass. The cornerback, playing Cover 2, failed to get enough of a jam at the line of scrimmage, allowing Ginn to shoot up the sideline unencumbered. Newton fired in a pass to the outside so Ginn could protect himself from the onrushing safety. Ginn was unfortunate to be tackled by the safety on the play, as he was an ankle tackle away from pay dirt. Ginn hauled in a bullet pass on a deep dig pattern later in the half as it seemed as though the offense was coming to life. The Panthers made a concerted effort to get the ball in Ginn's hands, handing it off to him on a double reverse and peppering him with passes in the screen game. The Vikings defense responded every time, their riposte deadly and clinical in terms of tackling.

2016 Week 2 vs SF (4 / 2 / 51 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)

Ted Ginn Jr. provided both moments of magic and moments of utter frustration against San Francisco. Early on, Ginn got on the end of a beautiful Cam Newton deep ball, running underneath it in the end zone for what appeared to be a touchdown. However, the speed merchant failed to tap his second foot in bounds. The play came out of a nicely crafted route combination with Devin Funchess, who drew the underneath defenders with a deep out. Ginn could have been off to the races on a quick slant route, but Newton did not release the ball correctly and it fell harmlessly to Ginn's feet. Ginn dropped a fairly straightforward pass on a deep dig route, perhaps hearing the footsteps of a closing San Francisco defender. He made amends for the touchdown taken off the board, hauling in a 52-yard pass down the right sideline from Newton. All Ginn had to do was run under the ball, although there was a question over whether he maintained control throughout the process of the catch.

2016 Week 1 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec, 1 / 20 / 0 rush)

Ted Ginn Jr. was largely marginalized in a tough matchup against a Broncos secondary that provided very few opportunities for big plays, where the speedy receiver normally makes his money. Ginn showed good speed to get to the outside on an early reverse, following a seal block from Cam Newton to dash around the edge. His sole reception came in the final two minutes as the Panthers were driving for a potential game-winning field goal, impressively securing a dart from Newton on the sideline, dragging both feet. Ginn was a regular in the receiver rotation especially with Kelvin Benjamin on a snap count but he failed to catch the eye of Newton, who went instead to the aforementioned Benjamin, Devin Funchess and Greg Olsen.
