Atlanta Falcons
vs
New York Jets
Georgia Dome | Monday, Oct. 07 | 08:40 PM EST (ESPN)

New York Jets

    1. Geno Smith
    2. Geno
      Smith
      QB
    3. PASS YDS178
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS17
    7. RUSH TD0

    Smith is likely to be without Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill this week. You don't want him in your lineup.

    1. Bilal Powell
    2. Bilal
      Powell
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS67
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS35
    6. REC TD0

    Even with the run game phased out because of a huge deficit, Powell had a useful game for his fantasy owners. He's a nice flex option this week.

    1. Jeremy Kerley
    2. Jeremy
      Kerley
      WR
    3. REC YDS84
    4. REC TD0

    With Santonio Holmes out and Stephen Hill likely to join him, Kerley could be a sneaky play this week.

    1. Kellen Winslow
    2. Kellen
      Winslow
      TE
    3. REC YDS27
    4. REC TD0

    Winslow caught six passes for 73 yards against the Titans. I hate this matchup for him.

    1. Nick Folk
    2. Nick
      Folk
      K
    3. PAT1
    4. FG1

    This offense is way too inconsistent to trust Folk as a fantasy kicker.

    1. New York Jets
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Jets defense played much better against the Titans last week than the score indicates, but I'd look elsewhere this week. The matchup is just too tough.

Atlanta Falcons

    1. Matt Ryan
    2. Matt
      Ryan
      QB
    3. PASS YDS315
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Ryan had a big day against the Patriots, and I like him to duplicate the feat even with a tough matchup on Monday night.

    1. Jason Snelling
    2. Jason
      Snelling
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS31
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS34
    6. REC TD0

    Snelling also could be considered as a flex, depending on the makeup of your roster.

    1. Jacquizz Rodgers
    2. Jacquizz
      Rodgers
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS38
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS26
    6. REC TD0

    Steven Jackson is likely to sit again, and that makes Rodgers a decent flex play depending on your other options.

    1. Julio Jones
    2. Julio
      Jones
      WR
    3. REC YDS81
    4. REC TD2

    Jones hasn't been 100 percent most of the season, but that doesn’t stop him from putting up big numbers.

    1. Roddy White
    2. Roddy
      White
      WR
    3. REC YDS58
    4. REC TD0

    White continues to work his way back from a high ankle sprain. I'm starting to get more confident in him.

    1. Harry Douglas
    2. Harry
      Douglas
      WR
    3. REC YDS22
    4. REC TD0

    Douglas has not capitalized on the opportunity presented by Roddy White's ankle injury.

    1. Tony Gonzalez
    2. Tony
      Gonzalez
      TE
    3. REC YDS64
    4. REC TD1

    Gonzalez is the only fully healthy pass catcher in Atlanta. That will show up again this week.

    1. Matt Bryant
    2. Matt
      Bryant
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG2

    Bryant knocked through three field goals against the Patriots and should be started every week.

    1. Atlanta Falcons
    2. PTS ALLOWED10
    3. SACKS4
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    The Jets are likely to be without Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill, making the Falcons a nice stream play this week.
