WR - ATL
Falcons' WR Drake London who suffered a knee injury, in Friday's preseason game against Detroit, missed practice Sunday. He is now expected to miss Week 2 of the preseason.
The injury didn't look bad, and it would be a surprise if it had any affect on his regular season availability. The Falcons first-round pick is likely being held out for precautionary reasons.
Drake London suffered a knee injury in Friday's preseason game against the Lions and will not return.
London caught one pass for 24 yards from Marcus Mariota on the Falcons first drive of the game. It didn't look like he suffered an injury on that play at first glance, but it is possible he felt something when walking over to the sideline. This will be a situation to continue to monitor surrounding the Falcons first-round pick.
Rookie Falcons wide receiver Drake London has been using every bit of his 6'4" frame to "create separation" and look "dominant" early in camp according to Falconswire.com's Dean Worley.
The 8th pick in April's NFL Draft, London enters the season expected to be the #2 receiving threat behind tight end Kyle Pitts (4th overall pick, '21) after signing a guaranteed four-year deal worth $21.53 million. It is a good sign for the USC-product to be aggressive and willing to meet the ball at its highest point this early on. If he and Marcus Mariota can continue to develop a rapport, he is more than capable of going up over guys in the end zone as he has proven with some fantastic catches in camp. He has all the physical and opportunity makings of a potential Draft Day sleeper in most formats, especially Dynasty leagues.
The Atlanta Falcons signed their first-round draft pick WR Drake London to a four-year, guaranteed deal.
London was the No. 8 overall pick by Atlanta in last month's draft. He and Kyle Pitts should lead the Falcons' passing attack led by QB Marcus Mariota. His fantasy impact will be limited as the Falcons are in rebuild mode, but he does have some value in dynasty leagues.
The Atlanta Falcons have selected wide receiver Drake London with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
The Falcons land a new number one receiver in Drake London, a big-bodied weapon that can operate on all levels. He has a massive catch radius with strong hands and should become a fantasy star when the Falcons find a long-term answer under center. He should flirt with WR3 value as a rookie and can be considered a WR1 in dynasty, even with the QB uncertainty.
