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.

Ladd McConkey Has Picked Up Chargers Offense With Ease

Monday, July 1, 4:45 PM

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Ladd McConkey was selected at the beginning of the second round in the 2024 NFL Draft, and he has a chance to make a significant impact right away after the organization moved on from Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler this offseason. The veteran trio was responsible for most of L.A.'s receiving production over the last few seasons, so there are big holes to fill in Justin Herbert's offense. According to Herbert, McConkey has excelled right away. "He's just picked up the offense so easily. It's like he's been a four- or five-year vet," Herbert said. "He understands the game." The Georgia product didn't have impressive numbers in college, but he was sharing the field with standout tight end Brock Bowers in a run-heavy offense and dealt with several injuries. If he becomes Herbert's go-to target right away, he has at least weekly flex appeal and WR2 upside in 2024.
