Bradford helped bring the Rams back from 11 points down in the fourth quarter, and finished the game with 299 yards and two touchdowns. Consider him a backup.
The Cardinals have a good defense, but Richardson's performance left me feeling underwhelmed. I expect more of the same this week.
Givens had just three targets last week, getting squeezed out of the gameplan by Jared Cook and Tavon Austin. He'll get back in it this week.
We were finally supposed to see the much-balleyhooed hidden ways in which the Rams would deploy Austin, but it didn't really amount to much. With the Rams chasing this week, he'll make more of a fantasy impact.
All of Cook's tools were on display against the Cardinals. He's a top-five tight end in the making.
Zuerlein made all four of his field goal attempts last week and led all kickers in scoring. He could very well exceed projections again this week.
The Rams picked off Carson Palmer once and sacked him four times, showing off their underrated skills. They're only a matchup play, however, and should be avoided against a team like the Falcons.
Even with a gimpy Roddy White, Ryan threw for 304 yards, 8.0 YPA and two touchdowns. He'll put on a show for the crowd at the Georgia Dome in the home opener.
Jackson got just 11 carries, but he racked up 77 yards and also caught five passes for 45 yards in the opener. He'll be fired up to play his former teammates this week, and they know what he's capable of producing.
Rodgers had just two carries and one target last week. This is what happens when the Falcons have a workhorse running back.
Jones led the team with nine targets, catching seven for 76 yards and a score. With Roddy White likely to be limited again, he'll remain the clear top dog.
With Roddy White hobbled by an ankle injury, Douglas caught four passes for 93 yards. If the injury to White lingers, Douglas could be in a prime position to make a difference in fantasy leagues.
White was able to play with a high-ankle sprain, but wasn't very effective. He later admitted that the ankle bothered him more than he expected. He's a risky play this week.
Gonzalez caught three of the six passes thrown his way for 36 yards and a touchdown last week. An effective pass-catching back like Steven Jackson could eat into his targets all year long, even though Jackson did have a bad drop at the goal line last week.
I expect the Falcons offense to get back on track this week, and that'll mean a big day for Bryant.
All things considered, allowing 23 points against the Saints in New Orleans isn't bad. The Falcons will turn it up with St. Louis coming to town this week.
How can Kansas overcome the injury to Joel Embiid?
