Devonta Freeman, Running Back
I never thought it possible that Freeman could have the game that he did last Sunday. Devonta came out on a mission in Dallas against one of the NFL's premiere run defenses, and executed it beyond perfection.This week it'll be a Texans' line that is no push-over with players like J.J. Watt, Vince Wilfork, and Jadeveon Clowney looking to put their noggin in your chest. It'll be interesting to see if Freeman can have a somewhat of a similar performance.
Brooks Reed, Linebacker
Brooks Reed will make his regular season debut for Atlanta, and will look to shore up some of those missed tackles that seemed to plague the team last week. The position has been held down by O'Brien Schofield, who has performed admirably in Reed's absence. Keep an eye on Reed to see how healthy he is coming off the groin injury that kept him sidelined for a majority of the summer.
Rs'Shede Hageman, Defensive Tackle
Ra'Shede Hageman has put up three straight games of positive play on the Falcons defensive line, but has yet to really make that splash play that fans will remember days later. The second year vet has began to live up to his draft status, and has an opportunity to make some truly impactful plays against a struggling Texans offense. Though, if he has just another solid game like he has had all year, I won't be let down.
How do you see these guys playing out this week, and who do you have on your watch-list?
