Week 15: at Atlanta Falcons

All WR vs ATL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Of all the rookie quarterbacks pressed into action in 2018, Josh Rosen is probably coming along the slowest. He's been hardly more efficient than Buffalo's Josh Allen and the Jets' Sam Darnold, but Allen at least brings mobility and running value to the table, while Darnold has flashed an impressive NFL arm. Rosen, on the other hand, still looks lost and low-impact as a passer. He's posting just 3.94 adjusted net yards per attempt, which factors in sacks, touchdowns, and interceptions, good for 34th among 35 qualifiers. He's taken 29 sacks and thrown 12 picks over just 343 dropbacks and has yet to show any of the poise and efficiency many saw as a prospect. He's far from fantasy consideration, and his presence dings whatever value his receivers would have otherwise. Larry Fitzgerald has made little impact in his 15th season, averaging just 4.0 catches and 43 yards a game. He could still be productive with some help at the other receiver spots, but with impressive rookie Christian Kirk on injured reserve, there's not much in place. The team has had to turn to the likes of tiny J.J. Nelson and undrafted rookie Trent Sherfield for snaps, and there's virtually no dynamism in this unit. Atlanta's much-maligned pass defense impressed last week, holding Aaron Rodgers to just 196 yards on 21-of-32 passing. In fact, this group has allowed just 187 yards a game over the last 5 weeks, way down from the 345 in Weeks 2-9. Still, much of that dip has come from the deflated volume as teams are consistently leading and beating these Falcons. Drew Brees, for example, threw for just 171 yards in Week 12, which was a major win on paper. But he completed 15 of his 22 throws and fired 4 touchdowns in the 14-point win, consistently beating the Falcons' decimated secondary when he needed to. Missing both starting safeties from Week 1, this unit is always beatable down the seams, and slot cornerback Brian Poole has been worked over numerous times inside. He's been the main culprit in huge games by slot receivers Tyler Boyd (11 catches for 100 yards), Adam Humphries (3 for 82), Sterling Shepard (5 for 167), and Maurice Harris (10 for 124). Their job is made even harder by a pass rush that's been invisible for most of the year. Vic Beasley (4.0 sacks) has had almost no impact, and the Falcons have struggled mightily to pressure quarterbacks off the edges. Despite the recent numbers, this is definitely a unit to target for efficiency. Embattled Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen could be in for one of his strongest weeks.
