3 Atlanta Falcons whose stock is up after week two loss to Rams
By Nick Halden
3. Drake London
Another week and Drake London earns another spot on this list after a great performance. London caught his first career touchdown and had an impressive hurdle that helped extend a big play and give Atlanta’s comeback bid. While Kyle Pitts becoming a ghost in the Atlanta passing attack has been frustrating it has been somewhat off-set by London’s first two big weeks for Atlanta.
If the Falcons can find a way to consistently get London and Kyle Pitts both going at the same time this Atlanta offense is going to be very difficult to slow down. Add in a mobile Desmond Ridder or Marcus Mariota and a big play waiting to happen in Cordarrelle Patterson and this offense has a chance to surprise people.
London’s success has been confirmation Atlanta made the right decision and has found their number one receiver to build around. It also opens the door to Calvin Ridley returning next season and filling the role he was elite at playing behind Julio Jones.
Ridley, London, Pitts, and Patterson are all under contract next season and would set Desmond Ridder up for success coming into his first full season as the starter.
