|Drake London was the first receiver taken off the 2022 NFL Draft board and he didn't disappoint: 72 receptions for 866 yards and four touchdowns his rookie season. London finished with the 28th-most fantasy points at his position, despite being in Atlanta's run-heavy system.
London's lengthy 6-foot-4 frame allowed him to haul in passes where only he could grab them and was very efficient, recording just three drops. However, he often went into slumps due to lack of volume in the offense. He had a combined 49.4 points in Weeks 1-3, but just 32.5 in Weeks 4-9. He was back on track in Week 10 (14.8 points), but combined for 12.1 the next two weeks. However, he finished four of the final five games with at least 14 points.
Since Robinson will be the opponent's likely focus point, London won't be under the microscope and I expect him to perform slightly better during his second season. He's a lower-end WR2 in fantasy football that'll likely go in the 5th round in redraft leagues.

Taylor Heinicke back to the bench

FFToday's Take: Taylor Heinicke got the start the past two games but was predictably average completing 54% of his passes while throwing 2 TDs and 1 INT in Arthur Smith' run-first offense. This change doesn't move the need for Drake London or the TE combo of Kyle Pitts and Jonnu Smith. Their value remains the same.

Missed practice all week

FFToday's Take: The Falcons and new starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke will be without their best receiver against the Vikings. Expect Mack Hollins, Van Jefferson and Cordarrelle Patterson to have bigger roles along with tight ends Kyle Pitts and Jonnu Smith. However, only one or possibly two are likely to be fantasy worthy given Arthur Smith's offensive scheme.
