Week 13: vs Kansas City Chiefs
All WR vs KC
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.
