Week 12: at Atlanta Falcons

All QB vs ATL

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Teddy Bridgewater played well against the Packers, but also was sidelined briefly due to a sore shoulder and took six sacks for -48 yards to go with his 25/37 for 296 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions passing, and 4/43/0 rushing. Bridgewater relied on Kyle Rudolph extensively last week (nine targets for 6/106/1 receiving), and also found Stefon Diggs (nine for 6/66/0 receiving) and Jarius Wright (five for 4/50/0) quite a bit last weekend. Though they lost the game, the Vikings' passing attack had legs last weekend. The Falcons' pass D is ranked 18th in the NFL averaging 248.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with 13 passing scores allowed balanced by 12 interceptions generated (tied for sixth in the NFL) and only 12 sacks (tied for last in the NFL). Despite the lack of a pass rush, over the past four weeks (three games), this team is ranked 20th in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (19.1 on average); though they have given out the ninth-most fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends (11.4); they have also been best in the league in fantasy points given out to opposing wide receivers (just 9.5 per game on average!). Last week, Matt Hasselbeck threw 23/32 for 202 net yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions (both TDs went to running back Ahmad Bradshaw). This looks like a neutral matchup for the visiting Vikings.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 11 vs GB (0 / 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Hill came in briefly when Teddy Bridgewater left the game with an apparent shoulder injury and nearly got the team a first down, but Stefon Diggs was unable to hang onto the ball.

2015 Week 9 vs STL (2 / 6 / 15 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Blame the fact that he came in cold during the early moments of the fourth quarter, but Shaun Hill looked really out of sorts. He had problems with accuracy, didn't seem to be on the same page as his receivers and struggled with reading the defense or reacting to what they were doing. If Bridgewater doesn't get cleared in concussion protocol in time for the game against Oakland on Sunday, Hill should perform better as he would have a week's worth of first-team snaps.
