Drake London News
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London had a disappointing performance in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The rookie wide receiver had only four targets in the game, finishing third on the team behind Olamide Zaccheaus (eight) and Cordarrelle Patterson (five). Furthermore, the former USC star caught only two of his targets for 29 receiving yards in the game. After scoring a touchdown in two straight games, London got kept out of the end zone in Week 12. With Kyle Pitts (knee) on injured reserve, fantasy players were hopeful the rookie would earn more targets this week. Instead, he had fewer than five targets for the fourth time this season. Maybe things will turn around next week for London against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London has found the end zone in the past two games. The rookie receiver started the year strong, averaging 8.3 targets and 14.5 half-point PPR per game over the first three weeks. However, the former USC star scored under six fantasy points in six straight games, failing to find the end zone every week. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have surrendered 28.6 fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season, slightly above the league average. Furthermore, they have given up 10 receiving touchdowns to the position this year, including two over the past three weeks. With Kyle Pitts (knee) out this week, London should see an uptick in targets.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London had an odd performance in the 27-24 Week 11 win over the Chicago Bears. The rookie receiver had a two-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter, scoring Atlanta's first touchdown of the game. However, the former USC star didn't have another reception in the game. London ended the game with one reception on three targets for two yards, a touchdown, and 6.7 half-point PPR fantasy points. While he found the end zone for the second week in a row, fantasy players can't be happy with the one reception and three targets. Yet, the rookie was second on the team in targets, only behind Kyle Pitts, and had a 15% target share in the game. Hopefully, London sees more targets next week against the Washington Commanders.
Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver and No. 8 overall pick Drake London enters 2022 with big expectations. The first wide receiver off the board, the USC product is the only rookie wide receiver who immediately steps in as his team's clear-cut WR1. His biggest competition for targets will be second-year tight end Kyle Pitts, who could take a leap forward from a promising start to his career. The biggest question for London and the Atlanta offense is how much passing volume we can expect from...
