Fantasy football 2023: Atlanta Falcons preview

Tribune Content Agency

Knowledge is power and the greatest asset you can acquire in order to compete for a fantasy football championship.

Here’s your 2023 preview of the Atlanta Falcons, the 21st of 32 team profiles during draft season:

— 2023 Fantasy MVP: Bijan Robinson, RB

Robinson (ADP: 7) is an all-around threat who is light on his feet considering his size and features home-run ability. He led the FBS with 104 forced missed tackles in 2022 at Texas and was drafted into the perfect situation to maximize his skills. The Falcons averaged almost 160 yards per game on the ground and 4.9 yards per attempt, both top-five in the NFL last season. Robinson has a legitimate shot at finishing as the overall RB1 in fantasy his rookie season.

— 2023 Fantasy Sleeper: Drake London, WR

In the four games Desmond Ridder started in 2022, London (ADP: 67) averaged nine targets per game and produced 333 yards on 25 receptions. He was the overall WR28 in standard formats (WR18 in PPR) during that stretch.

— 2023 Fantasy Bust: Kyle Pitts, TE

Pitts (ADP: 72) missed the final six games of 2022 with an MCL injury, so we didn’t get an opportunity to see him with Ridder under center. I don’t believe there will be enough volume in this passing offense for both London and Pitts to thrive across an entire season, but I like both players. It could end up being a coin-flip each week which one goes off.
