Week 13: vs Kansas City Chiefs
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Matt Ryan continued his tear through the NFL last weekend, with 26/34 for 269 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown, while taking three sacks for -25 yards from the Cardinals. Speedy Taylor Gabriel (five targets for 4/75/2 receiving) stole the highlight reel from Julio Jones (seven for 4/35/0) last weekend, while Mohamed Sanu (eight for 8/65/0) and even Justin Hardy (four for 3/47/0) had more receiving yards than Jones. The Falcons have a diverse array of receivers to throw at the opposing secondaries from week to week. It's all good for the Falcon's passing attack as we enter the stretch run into the playoffs. The Chiefs' pass defense was blown up for 20/34 for 340 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions by Trevor Siemian and company last Sunday night (the Chiefs did sack Siemian five times for -28 yards as the return of Justin Houston to the defense boosted their pass rush - Houston had three of the sacks). This game did go a full OT period, though, so the high amount of yards allowed was impacted by the extra time. Two games ago, the Chiefs gave up 24/39 for 326 net yards passing, one TD with zero interceptions, and one sack taken for -5 yards to Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers. They've been bleeding out yards in this phase of the game of late - from Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Kansas City has averaged 27 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (second-most in the NFL); and 31.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (fourth-most); with 4.3 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (second-least). To date, K.C. is 20th in the NFL averaging 260.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with 20 passing scores given out vs. 13 interceptions (second-most in the NFL) and 24 sacks (tied for 15th in the NFL) generated. This looks like a good matchup for the Falcons' attack.

Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 10 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Stuffed on a tunnel screen for a minimal during the third drive of the game, this two-yard catch was the only target he saw.
2016 Week 7 vs SD (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
He couldn't catch the sideline throw to the right boundary in the second half midway through the third quarter. It was his best opportunity all game.
2016 Week 6 vs SEA (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
He dropped a comeback off a designed roll out inside Seattle's 36 and later made a catch for eight yards.
2016 Week 5 vs DEN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Robinson's only target was cut off by Chris Harris; a timing route in the early second quarter.
2016 Week 4 vs CAR (3 / 2 / 48 / 1 rec)
The receiver was targeted on an outside curl but defensed by cornerback Berne Benwikere in the mid-third quarter. A few plays later, Robinson caught a slant. He scored on Benwikere later with a nice double move up the left side and a catch just inside the boundary for 35 yards.
2016 Week 3 vs NO (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Robinson caught a crossing route for four yards at the end of the first quarter inside the Saints 20 during the second drive. Like the rest of the receiving corps, they were almost superfluous in light of the running backs' production on the ground and through the air.
2016 Week 2 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)
Robinson had two key gains in this game. He caught a play-action pass from an I formation set on a comeback route for 19 yards to get Atlanta inside the Raiders' 30 early in the game. He also earned 10 yards on a low throw while running a 3rd and 10 crossing route, earning the first down and extending the drive in Atlanta's fourth series of the game and this led to a touchdown.
