NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Will the offensive line protect Brees for more than 1.5 second this week? If so Brees will have a nice game, as happened two weeks ago. On the road he scored more than 20 fantasy points only once (20.52 in St. Louis) but you can’t sit Brees. You just can’t.
Neither Thomas nor Sproles scored a touchdown over the last four weeks and the offensive line isn’t helping at all. Start them only if you have to.
Pierre Thomas – Week 16
Carolina allows the 3rd-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers but Colston has 3 TDs on his last four games and two of those were against the Panthers. Still no love for the other guys, sorry. Only Colston is a safe start at this point.
Jimmy Graham is probably the main reason why you’re still playing fantasy football.
Hartley out, Graham in. Sorry but I don’t think you can trust a new kicker at this point of the fantasy season.
Saints defense on the road is terrible, as Michael Fabiano writes:
The Saints defense scored a respectable nine fantasy points against the Panthers back in Week 14, but that game was in New Orleans. This weekend’s contest is in Carolina, where opponent’s defenses have combined to score the third-fewest fantasy points (3.8 PPG). Keep the Saints on the fantasy bench.
