Fantasy Player Projections
Georgia Dome | Sunday, September 13 | 1:00 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Falcons 24, Dolphins 20
190 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INTThe Wildcat takes the ball out of his hands, and look for the Dolphins to run more than a few plays out of that formation. This is a rough play against a tough D in the noisy dome.
4 rec, 55 rec yards, 75 rush yards, 1 rush TDThe Dolphins are looking to get him more involved in the passing game, so his numbers should be more steady from week to week.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 40 rush yardsBarring a big play out of the Wildcat, Williams is a sketchy play from week to week this season.
|WR||Ted Ginn Jr.|
4 rec, 45 yards, 1 TDThere will be better days ahead for this blossoming talent, but he gets held in check here. Miami likes to get him involved in the running game at times, so he might pop one.
5 rec, 60 yardsBess should be a nice sleeper this season working out of the slot. He's a better pikcup than Greg Camarillo.
1 rec, 10 yardsHe's a possession receiver who should bring some modest production every week, but he gets held in check here as the Dolphins struggle to stay on the field.
2 rec, 15 yardsHe's one of Pennington's favorite targets, especially in the red zone. Look out for him during bye weeks as you seek a backup tight end.
2 PATs, 2 FGsHe can hit from long distance, so he's not a bad play in any given week. You'll want to avoid the infield dirt at Landshark Stadium though later in September.
3 sacks, 1 INTThe Dolphins should be improved on defense from last season, but the Falcons have too many weapons and too much balance for this to be a wise play this week.
300 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 1 INTThe second-year pro will have a big opener, thanks to some big plays out of play-action.
110 rush yards, 1 rush TDThe Dolphins will hold him in check for the most part, but he'll taste the end zone at least once.
4 rec, 60 rec yards, 30 rush yardsHe's a little banged up but expect him to play. With the Dolphins focused on Turner, Norwood will hurt them in the passing game.
6 rec, 120 yards, 2 TDThe Dolphins have some inexperience in the secondary, and that is going to cost them against this explosive Falcons wideout.
2 rec, 35 yardsWith White and Tony Gonzalez competing for targets, it'll be slim pickings.
1 rec, 20 yardsSee above. Not enough footballs to go around to get him involved.
6 rec, 65 yardsThe Hall of Famer has a solid debut with the Falcons. There will be better days ahead for his fantasy owners.
3 PATs, 1 FGSuccess in the red zone means few chances for this veteran kicker.
4 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumblePennington isn't the most mobile of quarterbacks, so expect them to get to him a handful of times.
