Drake London Embracing New Offense

Sunday, July 7, 9:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London expressed enthusiasm regarding the team's pass-heavy offense under new coordinator Zac Robinson. "Ball is gonna be in the air," said London during a recent interview. "Getting faster for a quarterback that's seen it all, it's a really cool situation to have because we'd like to dictate what goes on in a stadium on a weekly basis. The faster we can play, the more efficient we can play, hopefully the more points we have." The 22-year-old was drafted No. 8 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft. However, he hasn't lived up to expectations, accumulating 141 grabs for 1,771 yards and only six touchdowns in 33 games. But with Kirk Cousins under center and a new offensive coordinator, fantasy managers are ready to get London on their rosters for the 2024-25 campaign.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba An Obvious Breakout Candidate

Saturday, June 15, 3:04 PM

Seattle Seahawks second-year wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba is an obvious breakout candidate in his sophomore season despite being in a receiving corps that still has DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett and in an offense that figures to lean more on the running game than new offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb did at the University of Washington. In his first year in the league in 2023, Smith-Njigba had 63 catches for 628 yards and four touchdowns in 17 games. No player stood out more than JSN during spring workouts and minicamp, although Metcalf and Lockett weren't always on the field with him. He was downright dominant at times, though, and head coach Mike Macdonald said "we're expecting big things out of him." The 22-year-old has his fantasy ceiling capped as long as Metcalf and Lockett are healthy, but fantasy managers still shouldn't mind rostering him as a WR4/flex.
