Drake London Week 1 Outlook - Panthers at Falcons

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

As a 21-year-old rookie, London had a 29.4% target share and was targeted on 32.4% of his pass routes. He averaged 2.07 yards per route run. It's possible the kid was just revving his engine and is really going to stomp the gas pedal in Year 2. Sure, London's target share spiked after Kyle Pitts got hurt last year. And, yes, the Falcons will be run-heavy. But, hey, there's really no one other than London, Pitts and possibly Bijan Robinson who's going to see a lot of targets in this offense. London is a weekly must-start in fantasy. That said, London's matchup against Carolina might mean a lot of face time with Panthers CB Jaycee Horn, a talented young cover man with the size (6-1, 205) to avoid being bullied by the 6-4, 213-pound London. Tread lightly with London in DFS (but don't rule him out of your lineups completely).
