Saints | Drew Brees owns Packers over career

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 17:34:22 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has posted a 114.3 QB Rating over his career against the Green Bay Packers, his second-highest such mark versus any opponent whom he's faced more than four times. In six career games opposite the Packers, Brees has completed 168-of-250 passes (67.2 percent) for 2,215 yards, to go with 17 touchdowns compared to only two interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is in his usual trademark groove right now, en route to getting his club in first place in the NFC South, and even though he'll be working away from the Superdome this weekend, his splits against the Packers have him set up to make his fantasy owners very, very happy in Week 7. As a result, he'll also likely be worth his high price tag in DFS formats, too. Fire him up everywhere.

Saints | Willie Snead listed as limited

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 13:51:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Snead was targeted three times in the team's Week 6 game and could see a few more targets this week against a banged-up Green Bay Packers defense. He is still being worked into the offense but could be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues.

Saints | Willie Snead puts in limited practice

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 14:18:20 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Snead didn't play much in his return from a suspension and injury last week. It could take a little more time for him to get back to 100 percent, but he should not be dropped by any means. He can be started as a flex if there are not better plays on your roster, but lower your expectations.

Saints | Willie Snead logged 21 snaps in Week 6

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 11:14:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead played in only 21-of-71 snaps in a Week 6 victory over the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Snead hinted last week he would get worked back into the mix slowly and that is exactly what happened. It would seem the lack of playing time was in an effort to allow him to fully recover from his hamstring injury than to further punish him for his three-game PED suspension to begin the season. Either way, expect him to double his snaps in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers before taking on his usual workload in Week 8. Owners are advised to keep him on the bench one more week.

Saints | Coby Fleener becoming a non-factor

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 11:33:18 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has caught just three passes for 42 yards in his last three games. Furthermore, he was targeted only once in the Saints' 52-38 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is clearly not an integral part of New Orleans' game plan on a week-to-week basis. He scored a touchdown in each of his first two games but has been invisible since then. It might be hard to drop him since he's technically the starting tight end in one of the NFL's best offenses, but you certainly can't start him.

Saints | Michael Thomas held in check

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:04:36 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas posted three catches for 11 yards on six targets in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas really laid an egg, which is disappointing considering the score was 52-38. If someone came home and checked the score, they probably thought Thomas was in beast mode, but he was mostly invisible. He'll look to rebound in Week 7 in Green Bay. Despite the egg-laying he remains a must-start fantasy option in most formats.

Saints | Willie Snead doesn't do much

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:04:02 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted one catch for 11 yards on three targets in Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Snead finally made his return after a three-game suspension and then a hamstring injury. It wasn't an impressive start. He'll look for better results in Week 7 in Green Bay, but for now he is only worth keeping on your roster for depth. Wait for him to knock off the rust in another game or two before relying on him as a starter.
