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

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

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Versatile and explosive and the matchup isn't bad. PPR value could be insane if they're playing from behind.
