Playing the matchup game this early in the season is tricky, though, I'm not convinced that the Falcons have improved on last year's D that allowed the 3rd most FPPG to backs.

- Jon Collins, Fantasy Sports LR

 
Atlanta allowed the 2nd most points to fantasy running backs. I don't think Murray will stay healthy the entire season, but he is a great RB1 option this week against the Falcons.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Lynch had just 113 yards on 32 carries and only 1 touchdown in 2 games against the Rams. I think he's a RB2 in what figures to be a tough road opener for the Seattle offense.

Talk of a committee is scary but Murray has insane upside and ATL isn't a bad matchup.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Rams on the road is not a good matchup but Beast Mode is pretty matchup proof.
