Sunday's Key Match-Up


Recommended Posts

Vic Beasley has a huge opportunity this week.

By Justin Dade, Falcons Correspondent, Wed, Sep 16th 1:24pm EDT

Falcons first round pick OLB Vic Beasley has been progressing nicely since being drafted, and showed some flashes Week 1 against the Eagles. The Falcons will be taking on the Giants this week in a big game that could provide a huge opportunity for Beasley in a key match-up. Rookie OT Ereck Flowers will be lined up as the starting LT for the Giants this week, which will be a much easier task than going up against a player of Jason Peters' caliber again. Flowers struggled a bit in the preseason, and is now also nursing an ankle injury he suffered in their Week 1 game against the Cowboys. Beasley will likely be lined up against Flowers early and often to give him a chance to record his first career sack.

Fantasy Impact: Flowers' injury whether it's major or not, provides a huge advantage to Beasley with his speed coming off of the edge. I expect to see a big breakout game from the rookie pass rusher out of Clemson as this is the perfect opportunity for him to prove himself against another highly drafted rookie. Beasley is a solid IDP option this week.
