Week 8: vs Green Bay Packers
All WR vs GB
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Matt Ryan cooled off a bit vs. San Diego, throwing just one passing score (22/34 for 273 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -17 yards). He is still very simpatico with Julio Jones (15 targets for 9/174/0 receiving) and also relied on running back Devonta Freeman (six for 5/42/0) and tight end Jacob Tamme (three for 1/17/1) during the contest. Mohamed Sanu (four for 2/16/0) and Justin Hardy (two for 2/6/0) chipped in a bit but weren't fantasy worthy last weekend.
The Packers' pass defense is currently averaging 242.2 net passing yards allowed per game (15th in the NFL), with 10 passing scores given out vs. five interceptions (tied for 14th in the NFL) and 17 sacks (tied for seventh) generated to date. Two games ago, Dak Prescott threw 18/27 for 233 net passing yards, three TDs and one interception at Lambeau Field; last weekend the Bears' banged up corps of quarterbacks managed 10/26 for 120 net yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown (both belonging to third-stringer Matt Barkley). The Packers' pass defense has been up and down in recent weeks - over the past three weeks Green Bay has averaged 14.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (third-least in the NFL); and 20.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (10th-least in the league); with 4.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (12th-least).
Ryan and company have a neutral matchup ahead when the Packers arrive at the Georgia Dome.
