Who to watch

Leonard Hankerson

When Hankerson has played well, the entire offense has been productive. After missing the past two games with a hamstring injury, Hankerson needs to step up as a consistent No. 2 option for Matt Ryan. This is the perfect time for him to do so.

Vic Beasley

Beasley started well as a rookie but has found life tough up against team’s premier pass blockers. This can be expected of a rookie, and we will see how he fares on the other side. It’s a plan Dan Quinn believes will help generate some pass rush, and Beasley’s role will be crucial.

Jacob Tamme

Tamme has carved out a solid niche on this offense, becoming a reliable target for Ryan in the passing game. If the receivers outside of Julio Jones continue to struggle, Tamme will be leaned on again as a security blanket for Ryan.
