Week 2: at Atlanta Falcons

All WR vs ATL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Philadelphia Eagles welcomed back a few much-needed pieces to its passing attack in the 2019 season opener. Carson Wentz returned from a back injury that kept him out the final games of the 2018 season, and an offseason trade brought speedster DeSean Jackson back to Philadelphia. Wentz and Jackson were undoubtedly the most impressive and impactful offensive players in Philadelphia's week one comeback against the Washington Redskins. Carson Wentz pushed the ball downfield and looked like his 2017-self that was vying for the NFL MVP before a knee injury cut his season short. DeSean Jackson provided a deep-threat far more dangerous than anything Wentz has seen to this point in his career, and the combination was lethal in week one. Jackson caught 8 of his team-leading 10 targets on the day, accumulating 154 receiving yards and 2 long touchdowns. Jackson's ability to stretch the field gave Washington fits all day and enabled Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz to work efficiently on intermediate routes. While their statistical output will likely regress with Jackson included in the offense, Jeffery and Ertz will continue to be useful targets for Wentz. Additionally, Philadelphia's offensive line did a tremendous job of protecting Carson Wentz throughout the game. Wentz was only hit three times in his 2019 debut, which means trouble for any opposing defense. The cohesion up front coupled with the plethora of weapons for Wentz to distribute the ball to in 2019 make Philadelphia's passing game one of the league's strongest. Atlanta faced just 10 pass attempts in their week one loss to the Minnesota Vikings. This small sample size gave little insight into what is different on the back-end of the Falcons defense compared to 2018. Atlanta returns 3 of their starters in the secondary from last season, replacing just Robert Alford, who left for Arizona in the offseason. Desmond Trufant and Isaiah Oliver will start at corner in 2019 for Atlanta, and both proved to be serviceable in coverage throughout last season. At safety, Atlanta boasts one of the league's best rotations of coverage safeties. Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal will start for the Falcons with Demontae Kazee available to rotate in as necessary. Allen and Kazee rank amongst the league's strongest safeties against the pass. Keanu Neal is returning from an injury that kept him out of all but one game in the 2018 season, and he will look to return to the form of his exceptional rookie year. Linebacker Deion Jones ranks amongst the league's best athletes at the position. Jones consistently posts some of the league's most-impressive numbers in coverage amongst linebackers. In the trenches, Grady Jarrett established himself as one of the NFL's best interior pass rushers in 2018. As one of the few bright spots in week one, Jarrett continued this upward trend in production against the Vikings. On the exterior, however, Atlanta has struggled to find consistent pass-rushers. Vic Beasley, Jr. and Takkarist McKinley both struggled to apply pressure regularly throughout 2018. As a whole, Atlanta sports a middling pass defense. There are talented coverage players in the secondary, as well as at linebacker. However, Atlanta's inability to apply pressure to the quarterback has held them back.
