WR Drake London, Falcons
I know I’ve had London in the sell-low spot before, but we’ve started to hit a breaking point with Marcus Mariota. Consider this a pre-emptive buy low call on London before what I predict to be a quarterback switch to rookie Desmond Ridder sometime in the next few weeks. All you had to see was this hair-pulling miss to Kyle Pitts on a route in which the tight end beat S Nasir Adderley on what would’ve been a 75-plus yard touchdown. There have been many other instances like this (he’s actually 12th in deep ball attempts), which has led to a ghastly 23.3% completion percentage on deep balls. London is on the field plenty (84% of total passing snaps), runs routes on a healthy amount of dropbacks (85%) and is targeted on nearly 27% of his routes (seventh-best among wide receivers). All he needs is the passing volume to go up from the 22.4 attempts that Mariota averages that ranks only 30th in the league. Even though Ridder is an athletic quarterback who definitely used his legs plenty in college, he also averaged 9.2 air yards per attempt his senior year with a 30/8 TD/INT ratio. Also keep in mind that the Falcons have the best schedule for fantasy wide receivers over the rest of the season and most importantly, during the fantasy playoffs.
