NFC South, Last week: 24
If I’m a Falcons fan, I’m not super pumped about Matt Ryan getting tossed to the turf three times in the early going against the Dolphins’ ferocious front seven. Ryan is the reason the Falcons haven’t been completely terrible in recent years, so he needs to stay healthy if this team is going to climb out of the NFC South in 2015.
One guy that could really help this team improve is Leonard Hankerson. Now out of the hazardous environment for a wide receiver that is the nation’s capital, Hankerson looks rejuvenated and ready to take-on the No. 2 role behind Julio Jones. Fantasy football owners would be wise to keep Hankerson on their radar.
