Why Denver Broncos Will Win
Drew Lock and the passing game rose up and rocked over the last few weeks, pulling off the win over the LA Chargers last week in the final moments.
Atlanta’s secondary has been a total disaster, giving up the second-most yards in the NFL and 20 touchdown passes. It held its own in last week’s win over Carolina, but this is where Lock and company get going right away in what should be a shootout. However …
Why Atlanta Falcons Will Win
Here comes the Atlanta running game. It’s been good for most of the season, and Todd Gurley has been great around the goal line, but this week comes one of the most balanced days of the season.
Denver’s run defense was a plus, but last week the Chargers took off for 210 yards, and now the combination of Gurley and Brian Hill should go off. That, expect at least two Denver turnovers, and the Falcons shouldn’t have to bomb away and press.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
WR Julio Jones, Atlanta
Jones has been targeted 29 times in the past three games after a slow start, and now it’s his time to rock with Calvin Ridley hobbling with an ankle injury. The Falcons might want to run early, but Jones will be the No. 1 target more than ever.
What’s Going To Happen
Atlanta is starting to play better. It beat Minnesota and Carolina, and should’ve beaten Detroit. The offense hasn’t had to go crazy, but the O has hit 400 yards twice in the last three games and should do it this week as the season keeps turning around.
