2. Falcons Defense/Special Teams
While they gave up a large amount of points in last week’s game, the Falcons’ defense managed to collect 5 points, largely due to the two fumble recoveries they had. Take out a garbage time touchdown thrown by the great Michael Glennon, and the squad would have scored even more points. This week, they play a Philadelphia offense that has struggled in recent weeks now that defensive coordinators have been able to gameplan against rookie quarterback Carson Wentz. Another pro for this team is that the Eagles’ receiving core has struggled all year, with the only major threats coming from Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor. Look for the Falcons defense to collect a respectable amount of points in fantasy football this week.
