Hmmmmm … They might have a point, but I’m just not so sure.
All the fantasy folks are saying that players to start this week will be Falcons’ quarterback Matt Ryan and rookie receiver Julio Jones.
True … The Packers defensive backfield has been gashed for multiple big plays each of the first four weeks and this week may be another repeat.
Consider what Broncos QB Kyle Orton did to the Packers last week … And he ain’t no Tom Brady.
It’s scary to think what Ryan might do this week, especially considering how Ryan will be looking for redemption from last year’s playoff embarrassment.
However, I have a gut feeling that the Packers defense will rise to the task this week with solid schemes and more big plays that have been the hallmark of this year’s defense.
I think the Falcons will get their share of plays, but so will the Packers’ defense … Enough to come away with a win.
So, you can start Matty Ice on your fantasy team, but the team walking off the field with a “w” will be Green Bay.
