-Defense –

The bad part about fantasy football is that it doesn’t always paint the picture that we see on the field. The Packers defense played quite a good game but the fantasy gods did not reflect the effort.

This week I think the journey gets a little bit easier. The only weapon that scares me on Atlanta is Julio Jones. Jones has been on fire as of late and the possibility of Sam Shields missing the game while recovering from a concussion suffered on Sunday.

Outside of that, I think this defense will keep up the good play. If the packers can get a few stops early, I think this game could get ugly in a hurry.

Standard Scoring Projection: 13 points
