The Atlanta Falcons escaped with a comeback victory over the Carolina Panthers and stayed undefeated at 4-0.
The Falcons' offense has been on a roll all season long and facing a porous defense that offense won't slow down this week.
The Washington Redskins are coming in at 2-2 and have only committed two turnovers through the first two weeks.
The two turnovers are a shocking number with a rookie quarterback as their starter but also speaks to the maturity of RGIII and his football intelligence.
Atlanta Falcons (4-0): Matt Ryan has to be the early leading candidate for MVP this season.
Playing at an exceptional level the Falcons and Matt Ryan have really opened up the playbook. He is clearly ready to be in the elite group of quarterbacks and is a must-start every week.
Michael Turner is tough to read and had a monster game last week. Rushing for 103 yards on 13 attempts and three catches for 68 yards and one touchdown. Coming off the big performance and a soft defense Turner could be a good play this week.
Jacquizz Rodgers is still a Michael Turner injury away from being relevant.
Roddy White had a monster game last week and is a must-start every week.
Julio Jones is playing the good week, bad week, good week, bad week game that all fantasy owners love. But with the talent he has and the offense he is in Jones is another weekly start for your fantasy lineups.
Tony Gonzalez is the definition of a fountain of youth. Play him.
Good starts: Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Julio Jones, Michael Turner, Tony Gonzalez
Middle of the road: --
Bad starts: Jacquizz Rodgers, Harry Douglas
Washington Redskins (2-2): Robert Griffin III has looked great through four weeks and in fantasy land is first in scoring at the quarterback position. Good play every week with his dual threat for passing yards and rushing yards.
Alfred Morris has to be the surprise of the season to this point. Coming in as the third-stringer Morris has taken over the starting role and has ran away with it. It may be time to stop doubting and start believing, put him in your lineups.
Pierre Garcon played in a limited capacity last week and is expected to do the same this week. A risky play at best this week.
Leonard Hankerson is leading the team in targets.
Fred Davis had his best game of the season last week and will look to continue that success this week. Still, you could find a better option out there.
Good starts: Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris
Middle of the road: Fred Davis, Pierre Garcon, Leonard Hankerson
Bad starts: Aldrick Robinson
