      Beckham caught eight of 11 targets for 143 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-20 loss to the Falcons.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Beckham turned in his best performance of the campaign, topping the 100-yard mark for the fourth time while scoring for the second. His season-high tally in yards included a 51-yard gain during the third quarter, finally giving him and quarterback Eli Manning their first connection of over 35 yards thus far. While the superstar wideout did drop a two-point conversion after helping fuel a touchdown drive in the fourth quarter, he compensated by hauling in a one-yard score on New York's final offensive play of the game. Overall, it was a stellar showing from Beckham, who will now look forward to a matchup against cornerback Josh Norman and the Redskins in Week 8.

      Barkley rushed 14 times for 43 yards and a touchdown and caught nine of 10 targets for 51 receiving yards in Monday night's 23-20 loss to the Falcons. He also successfully ran in a two-point conversion.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Barkley once again saw plenty of touches, particularly as quarterback Eli Manning's regular check-down target. In fact, Barkley has now caught nine passes in back-to-back games, even though his 51 yards Monday tied a season low in efficiency at 5.7 yards per grab. The rookie's 3.1 yards per rush weren't very good either, but despite playing behind subpar protection, Barkley once again managed to find the end zone, scoring from two yards out in the fourth quarter. Through seven games, Barkley has now racked up seven scores, and will look to add to his tally in Week 8 versus the Redskins.

      Ridley corralled five of six targets for 43 receiving yards during Monday's 23-20 win against the Giants.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: After collecting an absurd six touchdowns between Week 2 and Week 4, the No. 26 overall pick has come back down to earth over his past three outings with 42.7 yards per game and zero scores against the Steelers, Buccaneers and Giants. Though the explosive production has not been there of late, Ridley continues to be highly efficient, with a proficient 77.1 percent catch rate as the Falcons enter a Week 8 bye. Atlanta's next matchup is set for Nov. 4th, against a physical Redskins defense that ranks among the NFL's 10 best pass defenses (surrendering 218.5 yards per game through the air).

      Manning completed 27 of 38 passes for 399 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-20 loss to the Falcons.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Manning had his share of head-scratching plays, but a trio of long gains ultimately saw him finish with a season high in passing yards. In fact, Manning stunningly completed three throws of 50-plus yards, including a 58-yarder to Sterling Shepard on the team's final offensive drive. That series was capped by a one-yard touchdown to Odell Beckham, but only after two feeble attempts from the 37-year-old Manning to sneak it in himself. Overall, it was a greatly improved showing from the signal-caller, but a couple of failed red-zone opportunities prevented what could've been an even better performance.

      Jones hauled in nine of 12 targets for 104 yards during Monday's 23-20 win against the Giants.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: With another dazzling performance on Monday Night Football against the Giants (outside of a lost fumble during the third quarter), Jones surpassed 100 receiving yards in back-to-back games for the first time since Week 9 and Week 10 of the 2016 season. Though the two-time All Pro has been held without a touchdown over his past 12 regular-season contests, he has benefited from a monstrous workload, with an average of 116 receiving yards on 11.6 targets per game this season. At this rate, Jones is on pace to finish the year with 1,856 yards and zero touchdowns (would be the second-highest receiving output of his career). Following a Week 8 bye, Atlanta will travel to Landover, MD to take on a Redskins defense that has allowed the seventh-fewest wide receiver receptions thus far in 2018 (77).

      Coleman rushed 11 times for 50 yards and a touchdown and caught both his targets for 32 receiving yards in Monday night's 23-20 win over the Giants.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Coleman was mostly bottled up on the ground prior to breaking free for a 30-yard rushing score midway through the fourth quarter. That play marked Coleman's first touchdown carry since Week 1 and helped him put together his first game of over 4.0 yards per carry since Week 2. With a couple catches as well, Coleman outperformed backup Ito Smith, who finished with seven carries for 16 yards and two catches for 29 more. That should ensure Coleman retains Atlanta's starting tailback gig when the team reconvenes from its upcoming bye week.

      Griffin (illness) did not practice Monday.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Griffin was inactive last week and starts Week 8 as a question mark for Thursday's game against Miami. If he can't go, Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas will fill in, though neither have been major targets for quarterback Deshaun Watson in 2018.

      Ryan completed 31 of 39 passes for 379 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-20 win over the Giants.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ryan finished Monday's excellent performance by completing his last 18 passes, tying the longest streak of his career. The quarterback has been on an absolute tear lately, topping 350 passing yards in four of Atlanta's last five games. Over that same span, Ryan has compiled 13 touchdowns versus zero interceptions, with his lone score Monday coming on a 47-yard connection with Marvin Hall prior to halftime. The sizzling signal-caller now enters an untimely bye week, but he'll hope to rediscover his momentum at the Redskins in Week 9.

      Akins played 30 of 64 offensive snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: If there was ever a week that Akins might breakout, it was Week 7 with Ryan Griffin (illness) inactive. Unfortunately for Akins, the Texans relied on the running game, so the coaches opted to use Jordan Thomas, the superior blocker, more than Akins. We suspect the Texans will execute a similar run-first formula in Week 8 on Thursday night against the Dolphins, who rank 29th against the run.

      Lambo converted his lone kick, an extra-point attempt, in Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Texans.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Lambo is now without a field goal since Week 4 and he has only four extra-point attempts in that time. The 27-year-old still has yet to miss a kick this season, but has extremely limited opportunities with the Jaguars offense struggling to move the ball, let alone score.
