Found October 15, 2013 on We Talk Fantasy Sports:
Week 7 in the NFL is not terrible as far as BYE week impact, but Drew Brees, Darren Sproles, Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham are all on a BYE!  Let us help you fix your roster with the following options:QBAndy Dalton - Had it not been for back to back touchdown-less games, Dalton would not be available in most leagues.  Do yourself a favor Drew Brees owners and go claim him off waivers!  Guys is top 10 in completions PPR guys!Nick Foles - If he gets the nod over a recovering Michael Vick, Foles is a SOLID option against the Dallas Cowboys weak secondary.  He just torched the Tampa Bay Buccaneers D for 3 TDs and was on the same page as DeSean Jackson, which is all any QB needs.  Just keep your eye on the Vick situation.Sam Bradford - There is no way around it, Bradford has been a top 10 fantasy QB this season.  The Carolina Panthers defense has been pretty good this season and are stout against the pass, so go this route only if need be.RBJoseph Randle - If DeMarco Murray is out, Randle is in and should be in your lineup!  Brandon Jacobs - After rushing for over 100 yards against the Chicago Bears last Thursday, Jacobs will get another opportunity in Week 7, this time against the Minnesota Vikings.  This is a Vikings defense that gives up the MOST points to running backs in all of fantasy football!Zac Stacy  - The Rams were missing a run game before Stacy jumped in the lineup.  He has 32 rushes for 157 yards in the last 2 weeks, but has not reached the endzone.  Stacy has yet to join the pass attack so PPR guys beware.Andre Ellington - Ellington is slowly stealing carries away from Rashard Mendenhall and is also a part of the Arizona Cardinals pass attack.  A tough matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football awaits Ellington but this is a solid addition for the rest of the season as well.Roy Helu Jr. - PPR guys looking to replace Darren Sproles should turn to Helu, who goes against the Cowboys defense that has allowed the most receptions and yards to RB in the NFL.  That plus an injured Alfred Morris is a great combo.WRKeenan Allen - Philip Rivers seems to only throw the ball his way in the endzone these days.  In the last 3 weeks, Allen has 20 receptions for 302 yards and 2 scores.  Go get him!  Oh and they are playing the Jacksonville Jaguars!Brandon LaFell -  He is Cam Newton's best WR and a decent WR3 in non PPR leagues.Rueben Randle - While he might struggle with his routes, Randle has scored in 3 straight games for the New York Giants.  If Brandon Jacobs can continue to succesfully run the football, and Eli Manning playaction starts fooling defenses, Randle could be in for some LONG plays.Kris Durham - 21 targets in 2 games and benefits from playing with Matthew Stafford in college.  Even if Calvin Johnson returns healthy, Durham has stepped up as the Lions #2 WR.Jacoby Jones - Capable of one big play a game, stay away in PPR leagues.TEHeath Miller - 12 catches in the Steelers last 2 games, Jimmy Graham owners could lean on old reliable here.  Jeff Cumberland - Geno Smith's best pass catcherTimothy Wright - The Buccaneers TE now has 12 receptions in the last two games for over 130 yards.  Worth a shot.

Monday's atmosphere at Saints Camp was dripping with disappointment after Sunday's 30-27 last-minute defeat in New England.

On a 3rd and 20 down six points in the fourth quarter, Drew Brees hurled a desperation throw to a double-covered Kenny Stills in the end zone. That’s not a ball that has any business being caught, yet New Orleans came away with a one-point lead. The Patriots responded with a three-and-out.

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Patriots

This was by far the Saints' best offensive performance from an offensive line and running game standpoint. It's odd that it happens to coincide with such a bad game from Brees and Graham. Graham was by design, but Brees was just way off. It's just too bad because this offense needed just one first down to kill this game on the final two drives and couldn't make it...

Saints Nation: Five Things to Look for in Saints at Patriots

I do believe the Saints will face their toughest opponent to date this season, on the road no less, as they take on the Patriots in Foxboro. If the Saints want to go 6-0 they are definitely going to have to earn it today. There is no question they have the talent and ability to take this one, though.
