- Under 7.5 -120

Pitts is inheriting a good situation, getting an established quarterback in Matt Ryan. However, there’s only one ball and a lot of options on the Atlanta Falcons team.
Hayden Hurst in the tight end room could steal a good number of targets early in the season while wide receivers like Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage will be drawing a lot of targets too. Mike Davis is a good receiving option out of the backfield as well.

The New York Giants have a handful of receivers on the team in Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard as well as John Ross and Dante Pettis. It’s tough to project what kind of role Toney will have in the offense and targets could come few and far between with the pending return of Saquon Barkley.
Toney is talented enough to fly past both of these numbers if given the chance, it’s just a matter of if he’ll get the reps.
