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.
