Matt Ryan has looked fantastic throwing the ball, but it's hard to look otherwise with a receiver corps that consists of Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas.
Jones was a one-man wrecking crew against the Baltimore Ravens in Game 1, racking up 109 yards and a touchdown on six catches. While he was kept to just three receptions last week, Ryan was still able to find White and Douglas for four and three receptions, respectively.
It may still be preseason, but the three are looking dangerous as ever.
Not looking so dangerous are the other receivers on the team.
Expectations are high this year for third-year wideout Kerry Meier, but so far, he's been invisible on offense with no catches through two games.
Six players are battling for the team's fifth receiver spot, but none has yet taken a commanding lead. Drew Davis and Kevin Cone were said to be the favorites, but they, like their competition, were marred by drops.
Hopefully, the time will come when Meier's lack of catches is shown to be an issue of balls thrown his way as opposed to his ability to play, while a deserving candidate steps up to win the No. 5 spot.
But with the biggest concern for this unit revolving around players who will be lucky to even see the field in 2012, there's no doubt this stock's arrow is pointing straight up.
