Week Three Fantasy Preview: Atlanta Falcons vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

After a 24-10 loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals the Atlanta Falcons will be looking to right the ship on short week as the host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football.

I think I found a pretty good balance, but if there is any skewing, it’s probably towards pass rush. Total...
