I will be doing a more in-depth recap of last week, as well as my full picks and fanduel lineup over the next few days. For now, I wanted to make sure to get my relevant thoughts in for tonight’s game.
NO does not play as well on the road, but I still dont see them losing the decrepit falcons. Divisional games are usually closer then they should be, but I have faith in Brees and company to put up pts.
Fanduel Relevant Players
Kenny Stills ($4500)
Its very hard to predict who is going to get action on a Saints team, but when Brees is on, TDs will be had. For a $4500 price, Ill gladly take a stake in this when I need a low-priced WR.
Drew Brees ($11000)
I mentioned before that QBs playing ATL typically see some of their best games. That is still true, though Brees statline is much more impressive at home then it is away (average of 27.8 fantasy points at home vs 18.23 in road games. The $11000 tag is massive though, so I am including in one of my side lineups, but not my main one. That is reserved for a low-priced QB facing an inept defense.
Pierre Thomas ($5800)
ATL’s pass defense is horrible, but so is their run D. With Sproles possibly out for this game, Pierre Thomas could be in for a huge workload against a bad D on a good offense. There are a lot of good RB options this week, but I am not going to pass on this opportunity. Thomas is in my main lineup if Sproles ends up inactive for this game. If not, hes still a good play, though not a great one like some others.
