News: 6 days agoLondon caught three of six targets for 54 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 27-23 win over the Seahawks.
Spin: London failed to haul in any of his three first-quarter targets, but he got on the board with a 30-yard gain to start the second quarter. He wasn't targeted again until he secured a 14-yard, go-ahead touchdown at the end of the third quarter. The rookie first-round pick garnered a secondary role to Kyle Pitts, who led the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards after a quiet start to the season. However, London still garnered a sizable role and continues to exceed expectations to start his career. Through three games, London has caught 16 of 25 targets for 214 yards and two scores.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: London was selected by Atlanta with the eighth overall pick in April's draft. London is a 6-foot-4, possession receiver who lacks speed, but makes up for it with size and terrific ball skills. He aligned in the slot 96% of the time during his first two seasons at USC, but flipped to 85% perimeter in 2021 and enjoyed a breakout campaign. He handled a massive 38% target share when active, which allowed an 88-1,084-7 receiving line during a season cut short by a broken ankle. London is one of the youngest players entering the league, but he's set for an immediate every-down role in an Atlanta offense that badly needed WR help. The Falcons' QB situation is a concern, but London will see enough targets to warrant weekly WR3/flex consideration, at least.
