Take a deep breath in and exhale before the next sentence. Ok, here it goes. There are only four weeks left in the fantasy regular season. You can do one of two things: do nothing and sit there dazed and confused in mid-December, or go into Drew Brees mode right now. I have thus officially changed all trademarks and copyrights of Beast Mode to “Brees Mode.” It's not like the Mayor of the Superdome is putting up significantly better fantasy numbers, but the Saints are getting the dubs and getting them in a hurry.
Are the Saints a playoff team? Which borderline teams in your league will make the playoffs? These are all questions we would like the answer to.
The NFL is a complicated, confusing, mysterious, yet enjoyable ride. And so is my... knowledge... guiding you to the fantasy playoffs. Buckle up sweetie, we're going for a ride.

It’s been a rough year in New Orleans. Just short of canceling Mardi Gras, the Saints are the big show in the Big Easy, but since the bounty scandal, its been tough sledding.
The loss of head coach Sean Payton for the year and losing Vitt for 8 games, seemed to really throw off a team usually in sync on offense and timely on defense.
However, the offense seemed to have gained...
According to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Saints running back Darren Sproles returned to practice today after undergoing surgery on his hand just a few weeks ago.
#Saints RB Darren Sproles returned to practice today. Listed as limited but Coach Joe Vitt said he was full-go in shells and looked good.

As the week goes...
New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles was back at
practice yesterday after being sidelined for the past several weeks due to a
hand injury. The speedy back was full-go and it looks like he’ll be ready to
play this weekend when the Saints take on the Oakland Raiders.
Sproles underwent surgery on his broken left hand in the
beginning of Nov. While the recovery time was...
Dennis Allen is the 18th head coach for the Oakland Raiders, but in his first year, his 3-6 team is struggling.
Before he landed in Oakland, and prior to Allen being with the Denver Broncos in 2011, he learned his trade in New Orleans as a defensive backs coach.
Allen sat down with the Jerry McDonald of the San Jose Mercury News to talk about his time in New Orleans.
So it seems that as soon as I give my vote of confidence to a certain player, they have a knack for underperforming.
Last week’s article featured a picture of Buccaneers running back Doug Martin. He followed up his monster week 9 with a pedestrian week 10, rushing for just 68 yards. Martin did have 51 receiving yards, but failed to score for the first time since week 6.
Per a report from Kathrine Terrell of NOLA.com and the Times-Picayune, New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma ripped the Falcons for the perceived disrespectful bravado they showed prior to the game last Sunday. During pregame warm ups, Vilma said the Falcons rubbed them the wrong way, instead of showing some respect and humility, they were “chirping the whole time” and...
It’s already been reported how much talking the Falcons did before this past week’s game against the Saints.
Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma doesn’t really care about what they had to say because he says they always beat the Falcons any way.
“We’re not going to sit here and keep talking about how we beat the Falcons,” Vilma said, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “We...
Just when it looked like the New Orleans Saints were down for the count, the fleurs-de-lis from the French Quarter bounced back off the mat with a...
Last week: 20 (+2)
They’re the least likely of the three 2011 playoff teams who are currently 4-5 to go 1-6 and be this year’s team that goes from the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer, but I guess we can’t rule them out. They probably won’t be that team, however. That being said, they’re overrated. Yes, they knocked off Atlanta, but Dallas, Carolina, Washington,...
Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux said any harassment of former teammate Curtis Lofton, now a linebacker with New Orleans, before last Sundays 31-27 loss was done in good nature.
Saints linebacker Scott Shanle, who was inactive for the game, accused the Falcons of trash-talking with Lofton and interfering with Saints pregame drills, according to a Yahoo! Sports...
We’re talking bout practice Juan…
Julio Jones left the game against the Saints last week, only to return and grab a nice little 52 yard bomb. Now, he has missed practice all week and will be a gametime decision according to Mike Smith.
Smith: “These guys are so close and moving in the right direction that we’ll make a determination as late as we possibly can,” Smith...
