New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas leads the team with 26 receptions this year, and head coach Sean Payton credits Thomas' production to his ability to correct mistakes with minimal repetitions in practice.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas has found the end zone in three straight games, garnering 25 targets in that span. He should be no worse than a high-end WR3 going forward.

Fantasy Tip: After a bit of a slow start in the Crescent City, Fleener has found the end zone in two of his past three games while totaling 202 yards on 16 grabs over the past three games. He has re-emerged as a TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas made his targets count, and appears to have passed Willie Snead for the No. 2 receiver job in NOLA behind stud Brandin Cooks. Thomas is a bona fide WR2 in most fantasy leagues, too, heading into Week 7 in Kansas City.

Fantasy Tip: Snead got off to a hot start and appeared to be No. 2 in the pecking order before suffering a toe injury which sent him to the inactive list. Since the injury, he has been bypassed by rookie Michael Thomas for the No. 2 job. While Snead is still worth keeping on a fantasy roster, he is more of a low-end WR3 in most formats.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks normally would have been the top dog in fantasy leagues this week, but Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants overshadowed him. Still, Cooks was pretty darn good. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 7 when the Fleur de Lis hits the road for Kansas City.

Fantasy Tip: In a game featuring 79 total points, it was a disappointing game for Ingram from a fantasy perspective. He'll look to rev it back up in Week 7 on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs. He has been more of a low-end RB2 so far this season in most fantasy formats.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 34 of his 49 pass attempts for 465 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers. It was his 15th-career 400-yard passing game in the regular season, breaking a tie with retired QB Peyton Manning.
Fantasy Tip: The 400-yard game was the second of the season for Brees, who has thrown for at least 376 yards in three of his five games with three or more touchdowns in three outings, too. The Saints travel to Kansas City in Week 7.
