Fargo's 10* NFL Friday Star Attraction (+$36,694 NFL RUN)
2018-08-10 19:30:00

This is a play on the NEW YORK JETS for our NFLX Friday Star Attraction. One of the keys to a successful preseason is backing teams that are trying hard as opposed to just going through the motions to evaluate young talent and fill non-starter roster spots. Atlanta is pretty much set on both sides of the ball in its key positions so there will be a lot of second and third string players trying to impress. The quarterback rotation is key on both sides. Matt Ryan will get a series for the Falcons and that will likely be it. After that. It will be Matt Schaub, likely that some people did not know he was still even in the league, and then into undrafted free agent Kurt Benkert and former third round pick Garrett Grayson for the bulk of the game. As for the Jets, there is a three-way battle for the starting spot as Josh McCown is currently listed as the starter but there will be a battle to unseat him between Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold. McCown will see limited action and there likely will be equal reps for Bridgewater and Darnold which is a good thing as both have been very impressive during preseason camp. Falcons head coach San Quinn has made it clear he does not care about preseason results when Atlanta went 0-4 both straight up and against the number. 10* (276) New York Jets
