  • Drake London Has High Ceiling, Low Floor Against Lions

    Headshot for Drake London

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London caught zero passes in Week 1, then caught six of his seven targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 2. Given the Falcons' run-heavy approach, London is likely to be game-script dependent. Head coach Arthur Smith doesn't mind keeping things on the ground with Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier if it gives the team a win. That said, London does have plenty of upside against a shaky Detroit Lions secondary in Week 3, but he could also see very few targets and bust in fantasy lineups. This is likely a trend that will continue all season. Hopefully, the Lions will score plenty of points, forcing Atlanta to move the ball through the air.

  • Drake London Rebounds In Week 2

    Headshot for Drake London

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London grabbed six catches for 67 yards and one touchdown in the team's 25-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The Falcons got the second-year receiver involved in the game plan early following a non-existent Week 1 stat line. London was on the receiving end of Desmond Ridder's first pass of the game. His score came with seconds left on the clock at the end of the first half. Atlanta dominated the time of possession (over 36 minutes), giving London more chances to earn targets. The Falcons get a great matchup in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions but will still rely heavily on the run game.

  • Drake London - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Drake London

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London turned in one of the more disappointing Week 1 performances as he failed to haul in his lone target. The Falcons went extremely run-heavy in their Week 1 win, an offensive philosophy that could be an issue for London's volume throughout the 2023 season. London will look to bounce back in Week 2's road matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay was tough on opposing wideouts in 2022, allowing just the 21st-most fantasy points per game to the position. London's talent isn't in question but this is a tough week to trust him, especially after his goose-egg in Week 1. Treat him as a flex option this weekend.

  • Drake London Not Involved On Sunday

    Headshot for Drake London

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London didn't do anything for fantasy participants in the Week 1 win over the Panthers, finishing without a catch. Desmond Ridder did do much throwing in this one, so London was targeted just once. Instead, the team relied on Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier to do most of the heavy lifting on the offensive end. Despite the poor showing, the 22-year-old is still anticipated to be a routine contributor for Atlanta this season. However, it may not be at the level many were expecting. That said, it's only Week 1, meaning fantasy managers should keep London starting in Week 2 versus the Green Bay Packers.

  • Drake London Prime For Solid Week 1 Performance

    Headshot for Drake London

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London had a solid rookie season. The former USC star was the WR35 in 2022, averaging 8.4 half-point PPR fantasy points per game despite poor quarterback production. London ended his rookie season with 72 receptions on 117 targets for 866 receiving yards and four touchdowns, leading the Falcons in every category. The former Trojan is a popular sophomore-year breakout candidate after Atlanta didn't add any meaningful wide receivers in the offseason. Meanwhile, he faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 1. Last year, the Panthers surrendered 31.7 fantasy points per game to wide receivers, the fourth-most in the NFL. London is a safe floor WR2 this week for fantasy players.

  • Drake London Ready For Second-Year Breakout?

    Headshot for Drake London

    ESPN's Dan Graziano thinks Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London is ready for a second-year breakout in 2023. He was the first receiver selected in the 2022 draft and caught 72 of his 117 targets (tied for 25th in the league) for 866 yards as a rookie in the run-heaviest offense in the NFL (51.1 percent of the offensive plays) with Marcus Mariota at quarterback for most of the year. Atlanta added first-round running back Bijan Robinson this year, but London was a favorite target of quarterback Desmond Ridder when Ridder took over the starting job in 2022. Graziano gets the sense that the Falcons don't want to be the run-heaviest team in the NFL again. If Ridder is a viable starter this year, London should become a superstar. The 22-year-old is a fine WR2 target in fantasy drafts this weekend.

  • Offseason In Review: Atlanta Falcons

    Headshot for Tyler Allgeier

    Winners of seven games in four of the past five seasons, the Falcons have both overachieved talent-wise — during the Arthur Smith years, at least — while largely hovering off the radar. After two clear transition years that brought substantial dead money into the equation, the Falcons’ Smith-Terry Fontenot operation has moved to a point […]

  • Falcons To Use Bijan Robinson, Cordarrelle Patterson In Passing Game

    Headshot for Tyler Allgeier

    The addition of Bijan Robinson to the Falcons’ backfield is expected to boost what was already a productive rushing attack in 2022. It is also likely to yield a change in Atlanta’s deployment of some of their running backs, however. The Falcons are planning to use Robinson, this year’s No. 8 pick, in a role not exclusively […]
