Everson Griffin, DE Vikings: Griffin really already started his breakout campaign last season, finishing the year tied for 9th in the NFL in sacks. Despite having a great year statistically, Griffin is still not as big as a household name in the league when it comes to defensive linemen, and will continue to be undervalued throughout the start of the 2015 season.
Zach Greinke – There are some other great pitchers tonight, but Greinke has been great so far this year, and has the best matchup against the Phillies tonight. They got shut down by Kershaw last night, and while Greinke may not toss 13 K’s, I do expect him to pitch deep into the game with a handful of K’s.
Jordan Spieth – He has been dominant this year, and I’m sure will be taking this week very seriously as he gets ready for the Open Championship. He has 3 wins and and 3 runner ups this year, and just always seems to be in contention at these tournaments. He is a putting machine and will like card a lot of birdies at the John Deere this weekend.
The Atlanta Falcons (6-10 record and 3rd in the NFC South) are coming off of a 2014 season where they underperformed and missed the playoffs for the second straight season. With a franchise quarterback leading the way, and a new head coach in Dan Quinn, the defensive minded coach the former Seahawks Defensive Coordinator. On the defensive side of the ball, where the Falcons need the most help, look to build a strong defense with Dan Quinn at the helm. During this year’s draft, with the 8th overall pick, the Falcons selected the pass rush specialist Vic Beasley out of Clemson. This addition should create some matchups problems in their favor. Then, they proceeded to add some depth to their defensive backfield with Jalen Collins, and then two effective offensive players with speed threat RB Tevin Coleman and NCAA career receptions leader Justin Hardy, to replace slot receiver Harry Douglas. The Falcons look to bounce back after two tough seasons, and to get back to the playoffs in a fairly weak division.
