Who to watch

Leonard Hankerson

Andre Johnson had been quiet all season, but then he played his former team under the bright lights. Johnson had a day on Thursday night, and Leonard Hankerson could do the exact same against the team he spent four years with.

Hankerson has been the perfect complement to Jones in the passing game, and with Julio not entirely healthy, the former Redskin could have a huge impact on the game.

Roddy White

Roddy White voiced his frustrations with a lack of targets this week. Now let’s see if his wish comes true. With Julio banged up, Matt Ryan could be looking in White’s direction more often this week. He proved in Week 1 how productive he can still be, and it’s not like he hasn’t been open.

Tevin Coleman

Tevin Coleman impressed as the featured back before suffering a ribs injury in Week 2. During his absence, Freeman has broken out with two dominant displays and has taken over as the main back. Coleman’s action may be limited as he is eased back in, but how he performs compared to Freeman will be interesting to watch.
