Saints Key Injuries: Michael Thomas, WR, Ankle, Drew Brees, QB, Ribs (ACTIVE)
NOTES: Patrick Mahomes brings with him the second highest-scoring offense thus far (31.0). Although a tongue-twister, there is an equation that gives the Chiefs a first-round bye. It is: Chiefs victory + Pittsburgh Steelers loss + Buffalo Bills loss or tie = a Chiefs first-round bye! With Drew Brees back under center, expect a offensive battle, which bodes well for any fantasy players you might have. Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill are obviously must starts. However, players such as Sammy Watkins, Mecole Hardman, and Demarcus Robinson can be great value plays for daily fantasy matchups.
Like I previously aforementioned, Brees makes his long awaited return since suffering a ribs injury in Week 10. Backup Taysom Hill was able to keep the team afloat in Brees’ absence, going a respectable 3-1. A win here against the defending Super Bowl Champions can secure the Saints the NFC South division title over the Tom Brady led Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Depending on if Michael Thomas plays or not, Emmanuel Sanders could be an solid fantasy option.
