Drake London got back in good graces with the Falcons passing more in a more contested contest. Drew 7 targets for 6 catches and 67 yards with 1 TD. Got first target of the game and more designed looks. Looked really good despite coverage from Jaire Alexander. Team-high 24% target share. Mack Hollins was the team's air yards leader, converting his downfield looks into 3 catches for 60 yards. However, not everybody flourished. After London bombed last week, it was time for Kyle Pitts to disappoint. 2 catches for 15 yards. Two end-zone targets that came up short. 5 total targets was fewer than No. 2 tight end Jonnu Smith, who was actually running legitimate routes (not just designed behind the LOS passes etc.). That was despite Pitts running a route on 88% of dropbacks (same as London). He can't run more routes. And Smith played a lot more in Week 2 (67% vs 50%) than he did in Week 1. Through two weeks, the only trustable asset in the Falcons offense is Bijan Robinson. Literally. So nasty.
Every other is going to be volatile week to week. Either you set it and forget it (take your lumps). Or cash out after a strong performance. Good matchups are coming up in the next few weeks with Detroit and Jacksonville. So easy case to sell. Note that Pitts and London have fewer targets than Robinson and Hollins through two games.

The advice I gave last week was to hold London/Pitts. Or even buy low on London. That looks like a W after he had a solid week. But Pitts, I think the ship has sailed. Not much has changed from last year that is working in his favor.
