Fantasy Impact:

While Matthews missed practice earlier in the week with a knee injury, he should be fine to play in Sunday's road encounter at Dallas. Considering the revamped Cowboys pass-rush, the Falcons will need all hands on deck to keep Matt Ryan upright and attempt to get Todd Gurley going on the ground with more efficiency. If Matthews ultimately sits, expect Matt Gono or John Wetzel to draw the Week 2 start.
