Week 7: at Baltimore Ravens

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The Atlanta passing game continues to churn up yards for Matt Ryan (19/37 for 271 yards passing, one TD and one interception vs. Chicago last week; 29/45 for 316 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown at New York two weeks ago), but Ryan is having trouble finding anyone but Antone Smith to score for him of late. Last week, Julio Jones had 12 targets come his way but only managed 4/68/0 receiving, while Smith posted four for 4/64/1; two weeks ago Jones handled 16 targets for 11/105/0 receiving, while Smith saw three for 3/83/1. Obviously, Jones is by far and away the lead target for Ryan this year, but he's not finding paydirt of late. The Ravens' pass D ranks 27th in the NFL averaging 270.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with six passing scores given up vs. four interceptions (tied for 16th in the NFL) and 10 sacks (tied for 19th) generated to date. Mike Glennon took five sacks for -37 last week but still threw 24/44 for 277 net passing yards, two TDs and one interception, while Andrew Luck was sacked once for -7 yards, and he managed 32/49 for 305 net passing yards, one TD and two interceptions vs. the Ravens two weeks ago. This is not a premier pass D, folks. The Falcons are currently third in the NFL in average net passing yards per game (306.8) - this looks like a great matchup for the Falcons even though they are on the road in this game. Also, the rushing matchup is fairly tough, so the Falcons will likely throw early and often in this game.

Broncos | Julius Thomas works with Tony Gonzalez (Thu Oct 16, 10:38 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas received several tips from Tony Gonzalez this offseason. 'I wasn't going to rest on what I did last year,' Thomas said. 'I was really determined to come in and keep working and try to find every way I could to get better.'

Our View: The work Thomas did this offseason is certainly helping him dominate this season. He's the top tight end in fantasy football, and Thomas is leading the league with nine touchdown receptions so far. With the way that he's catching touchdowns on such a frequent basis, he could surpass the single-season record (17) for touchdowns by tight ends in a season (Rob Gronkowski, 2011).
