2.) Drake London vs. Carolina Panthers
It is weird putting Drake London on this list after he just put up 172 receiving yards on 10 catches last week in the Falcons’ close loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a week ago. However, inconsistency has also played a role in London’s season the last four games. One week he puts up 6 points, which is then followed up with 14 points, just to go down again. This week the Falcons travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers in what should be a clean up game for the Falcons because of how bad the Panthers have performed this year.
While the Carolina offense has been underwhelming against opponents, the defense is a different story. Since the Panthers’ bye week in Week 7, the defense has given up just 200+ passing yards once and have held three times to 120 passing yards or less. The Falcons only managed to put up 91 total passing yards on the Panthers back in Week 1, where London had just one target and no catches.
The matchup is too risky seeing as how the pass defense for the Panthers is the lonely bright light on their team. London can go on the bench this week
