There should be plenty of cheap, easy passing numbers in this game...
Last week, the Falcons gave up a TD to both O.J. Howard and Cam Brate. Week 4, Tyler Eifert scored a TD. Since LB Deion Jones went out a few weeks ago, everything has fallen apart for ATL on defense. Tight Ends are heating up against them in the wave of terrible pass defense ATL is showing. Engram is back and the Giants need to use every weapon to win and get back into the NFC East (false hope). It's a do-or-die game for NYG on national TV (MNF).
I don't like working a mediocre-ish output TE versus Jordan Mills/the Philly linebackers. Philly is top 5 in fewest FF points to TEs and fewest targets to TEs. I don't know how 'back' Greg Olsen is either.
Hold onto your seats for this stat...Olsen has scored just 1 TD in his past 17 regular season game appearances.
Olsen has posted 35+ yards in a game twice in his last 10 regular season game appearances.
9 targets in a game two weeks ago, five last week (and no catches). He's been targeted 4 or more times in four of his 6 games this season. Five or more targets in half of his games in 2018 to date. Maybe Griffin gets lucky with a 4-5 catch game and lucks into a TD for the TE super-desperate this week?
