Thursday Night Reaction
Week 8 Thursday Reaction
We made it through another Thursday night and the Atlanta Falcons didn’t give up a lead. This game had a lot more Defense involved then we are used too as Atlanta was able to get after Teddy Bridgwater for 6 QB hits and 3 sacks, plus 6.5 tackles for a loss and a pick.
The Carolina Panthers weren't to shabby on defense also. They got after Matt Ryan for 5 hits, 2 sacks and 4 tackles for loss. They also held the Falcons out of the endzone 4 times in the Redzone and 4 Younghoe Koo field goals. These defenses ruined what should have been a shutout.
Here are your fantasy studs:
21/30 281 yards 0 TDS and a Int; 6 carries 27 yards 1 TD. His night started out good but when Calvin Ridley went down with an ankle injury it looked like Ryan struggled and was thrown off his game, similar to games without Julio Jones. His fantasy day was saved with the 27 rushing yards and a TD.
7 receptions and 137 yards. Typical Julio Jones game. You can't complain about 20 fantasy points. Keep putting Julio in your lineups.
18 carries for 46 yards and a TD. Like Matt Ryan, the TD saved his fantasy day.
Nobody else really put up fantasy stud numbers.
Here are some fantasy duds
2 reception for 55 yards. Moore really did nothing until the last quarter. Over the last two weeks he's been more involved but not tonight
13 carries 66 yards. You wanted more, I get it but as bad as the Falcons pass defense jas been their run defense has been top 5
5 receptions for 48 yards. I'm sure when you put Anderson on your lineup this week against Altanta, you wanted expecting those numbers.
